Severity scale:PC MightyMax severity is 68  (68 / 100)
 
PC MightyMax can be classified as fake and useless diagnostic tool, because it can be difficult to exit without purchasing the full version of this product. It seems that PC Mighty Max was design to periodically display pop-up windows and distracting alerts in order to scare users hopping that they will buy this worthless application.

PC MightyMax runs automatically when computer starts, and there is no easy way how to change this behaviour. What is more, it has no setting to allow users to disable this function. Every few hours, PC MightyMax displays "CRITICAL ALERT" and "Alert!!!" pop-up windows that are mainly advertisements for the full version of the this software. These officious alerts can even make beeping noises decreasing user's ability to work with his computer. Summing-up, PC MightyMax may be considered as unwanted application which should be removed without consideration.

I have just tried what you have sugested here, it is a little different with win-7. Taskmgr>PCMightyMax>remove it was that simple. Thank you for the info. This did delete that pain in the ass program, and I am delighted. While I had taskmgr up I also looked through all the diferent places that this program could hide i.e., service, etc. thank you again for excellant advice.

I dealt with this problem on two of my family members' Windows Vista machines this week and I wanted to add another process to kill to the list above.

Trayicon.exe

Pcmightymax appeared under this name in the task manager in both instances.

The rest of the information worked well. Thanks!

Thank you so much for this advise. I have been trying to find a way to get this off my computer for about a year. It is a real pain. This worked well and I also had to use the name of Trayicon.exe to uninstall this program.

The easiest way to get rid of this pest is to block it in the start-up, either in the task manager or using ccleaner, (tools/ start-up )which is a free download,(pest free as well). This will not remove it but it will be effectively dead.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I am not a computer savy person, but I thought I knew enough to remove programs, til PC Mighty Max (which should be called "Mighty Pain In Your A$$". Spybot did not get rid of the pop-ups, but after I followed your recomendations, I then had to delete it from my trash bin. Now the icon is gone and no more pop-ups.

We have windows XP - we were deceived by "Mighty Max" and they planted their spyware on our computer. We managed to remove it by creating a new folder (in the documents & settings XXXs documents-local documents- appications) where the deception was planted. We then moved the max program into the new folder and were then able to delete the new folder with the max spyware. The &*#%%@s at Shitty Max havent yet anticipated this - however, you can bet they might be watching these boards and are taking notes to add new measures to avoid being defeated by the people they deceive.

Does anyone have the names and address of any of the people involved with this company? Id like to stop by and have a nice friendly chat. If anyone has any name and address information, please post.

The above suggestion worked for me as well...a complete uninstall wizard specifically for PCMightyMax came up and I followed the prompts. As far as I can tell, all traces of it have been cleared from my computer (windows 7) and no more pop ups. Yay!! : ) Thank you so much. A beautiful and blessed day to all. ~Lisa : )
