PC Health Boost (you can also find it named as PC HealthBoost or PCHealthBoost) is a paid registry cleaner, which promises to improve computer's speed by eliminating outdated registry entries and fixing other registry-related problems. Typically, its trial version starts scanning the system as soon as it is installed on the system and shows quite informative pop-up advertisements that identify such problems. In order to fix them, people are asked to purchase its licensed version. While this program is harmless and can really detect and eliminate outdated registry entries from your computer, we can't guarantee that it will detect ALL of them. In the best scenario, it will remove few hundreds of unnecessary entries what will minimize your registry by several kilobytes and that's it. So, while PC Health Boost is legitimate and harmless, you should think before purchasing its license.  


PC Health Boost is available at several different websites, such as cnet.com and pchealthboost.com. These sites have been labeled clean and harmless by malware researchers, just like PC Health Boost itself. However, in some of the cases you may download this program in a bundle with freeware and shareware. If you want to avoid unexpected downloads, make sure that you choose Custom or Advanced installation of the free downloads. As soon as PC Health Boost is installed on the system, it starts its work: it immediately runs its registry scan and reports about detected issues. Note that it can check your computer with or without your intention. To sum up, PC HealthBoost is a legitimate application, which has NOTHING in common with viruses or malware. However, such programs can hardly have a visible effect on computer's speed, so we would think before spending our money on their licenses.

Hi Ugnius,

I think that your website is great for the most part, and really appreciate many of the offers that you have affiliate links going to. Even though SpyHunter, MalwareBytes, and StopZilla are our competitors, we like their software and would never defame an honest and hardworking company like them. In fact, weve worked side by side with StopZilla on several occasions and dont know if theyd appreciate us being reported as an "unwanted application". I hope that having you as an affiliate works out to be a great asset to them. I can tell that you are making an earnest effort.

You might even want to consider becoming one of our affiliates. We offer a $150 bonus for your first 5 sales and up to 90% commissions after you hit a certain level of sales. Email me at [email protected] for more info.

This article claims that our program does a lot of things that it doesnt such as:

* being a fake program
* fake warnings
* being a parasite and installing w/out permission (we never do that)
* bundling (never do that). If you have found it bundled somewhere, please let us know because this is a serious violation of out TOC.
* fake scan, we use scan safe technology(TM)

Please note that you are also violating our trademark agreements by having the photo of our software up here without our explicit permission.

Please take this down immediately. It is false and slanderous to our company.

If you would like to provide removal instructions, that is fine as long as it doesnt violate our Trademarks. However, please refrain from calling our product a parasite or even insinuating that it is.

Hello Erin,

We have altered our post about PC Health Boost according to some of your notes. However, we cant agree with another part of your statements. Here are they:

First of all, have never called your program a virus, malware or fake program.
Secondly, we've never mentioned about FAKE warnings and FAKE scan. Of course, the frequency of your program's alerts have initiated some doubts for us that it seeks to push user into purchasing the license.
Thirdly, our users have recently contacted us asking about your product's appearance on their computers without downloading it there. In fact, there are many discussions on the Internet reporting about this issue. Please, check the link: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_other-windows_programs/is-pc-healthboost-a-legitimate-microsoft-partner/952afe36-1d46-4c2c-9513-7f62f3eded22
Finally, the screenshot was made by our research team, so we dont have to ask your explicit permission for using it on our site.

Wow i guess boost got a little hot under the collar there but then tried to convince you to come over to the dark side. Admit it Boost, your software is just another piece of junk software that tells the users they have all kinds of problems and scares them into buying it. I guess the properly tag would be scareware. I remove this crap all day long at our shop from clients computers and your software is just another of the thousands that are out there that try to scare customers into buying your software. Total scam.
