PC MightyMax. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Lucia Danes - -   Also known as PC Mighty Max, PCMightyMax, PCMighty Max | Type: Malware

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.

  • Lisa

    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 : )

    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.

    • Mike

      I would also like to know the name and address of the POS company that created mighty max. I got this virus from a website that was recommended by Microsoft.

  • How To Remove

    Control Panel > Programs > (thing you want to remove). Choose “Uninstall”.

    Its that simple.

    • Steve

      No, it is not that simple. The programme is removed but the pop-up persists ad-nauseum…. This is what is annoying people on here. It is an out & out scam and someone somewhere should be doing more to eradicate these fraudsters.

  • Guest

    What's to say anything you're pushing isn't more of the same?

  • Guest

    Why does microsoft remain silent on PC Mighty Max malware?

  • Guest

    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.

    • johann

      Ccleaner does not remove pc mightymax nor any of the popups.

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.
