What is PCBooster and what is the aim of this program?

PCBooster is a rogue computer security program, which falsely claims to be a partner of Microsoft. It promises to improve computer speed, clean it from junk files, make Windows startup faster and extend computer’s life. If you are an inexperienced computer user, such claims probably sound promising to you. Please, do not fall for such false statements and do not install PCBooster on your computer. It is just an annoying and fake PC optimizer, which assigns itself to startup programs and automatically runs its processes each time you turn your computer on.


This dubious application pretends to perform system scans and then displays intrusive notifications, which report that your computer is stuffed with faulty files and that there are hundreds of errors that need to be fixed immediately. However, you should not trust these claims because these “scan results” are nothing but false positives. What is more, PCBooster virus slows down computer’s performance to make you believe that computer is seriously messed up. However, the only aim of PCBooster is to frighten you and force you to buy the full version of it, which supposedly should optimize your computer and solve all the problems instantly. Unfortunately, this application can hardly be useful in any way. You probably already understand that the real aim of this application is to strategically create a need of its license and swindle people’s money.

As you can see, the real problem is PCBooster scareware itself. We strongly recommend you to remove PCBooster with a reputable anti-malware program like Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego. This malware removal tool can scan your computer system thoroughly, detect and delete all possibly dangerous programs.

Questions about PCBooster

PCBooster scanner has an official website and it can be downloaded from there. This website is full of false claims about how useful this program is. However, PCBooster is not a well-known program, and obviously computer users hardly ever download this program by their wish. Because of this reason, this rogue application is mostly distributed via the popular bundling method, which allows binding several applications into one pack. Take note that whenever you decide to download a new program, you have to make sure that the website that suggests the download link is the official one. Otherwise, you may end up with a questionable bundled pack of programs. Another way to reject unwanted applications is to look through the installation process carefully to notice if optional downloads will be installed alongside your preferred program. You need to choose “custom” or “advanced” option in order to deselect the agreements to install unwanted content. It is as simple as that to ensure your system’s security.

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. It is a hassle when your website is protected from suspicious connections and unauthorized IP addresses.

The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address. If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for server or network manager that need to monitor connections and activities. This is how you bypass some of the authentications factors and can remotely use your banking accounts without triggering suspicious with each login. 

VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world. It is better to clock the access to your website from different IP addresses. So you can keep the project safe and secure when you have the dedicated IP address VPN and protected access to the content management system.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer from data losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Ransomware can encrypt and hold files hostage, while unforeseen power cuts might cause a loss of important documents. If you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work. It is also equally important to update backups on a regular basis so that the newest information remains intact – you can set this process to be performed automatically.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware strikes out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the data restoration process.
