How can DoctorPC appear on my computer?
Just like any other PC optimizer or security program, DoctorPC may start showing its alerts about bad registry files out of nowhere. That's because it is mostly promoted via misleading alerts offering people to check their computers with some free scanner. If you have just clicked an alert offering you to do so for free, there is no surprise that DoctorPC is now offering you to purchase its license. In addition, this program may try to infiltrate your computer via freeware and shareware because here it may be hidden in 'optional components'. For protecting yourself from this or other unexpected downloads, make sure you start monitoring installation of every freeware.

Once you do that, make sure you carefully follow every installation step and opt out of suspicious browser add-ons, extensions, toolbars and such suspicious PC optimization tools. Once this program enters computer, it modifies some of their settings and then starts showing its scanners or alerts. In most of the cases, it does that as soon as user reboots his/hers computer.
