What is Tech Hubby?
Tech Hubby is a suspicious application, which is promoted as a powerful PC optimization tool. The majority of people seek for such and similar programs as they consider their PC’s to be running slowly due to outdated registries, corrupted files, and similar content. However, Tech Hubby or any other similar app (e.g. Fix My PC, Driver Support, A1PCCleaner, etc.) are not recommended using as they tend to work in an unfair manner in order to convince people buy premium versions or licenses.
In fact, Tech Hubby has been categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) due to the fact that it usually spreads via other freewares and sharewares. Once installed, it may start scanning your computer and look for supposed issues on your PC. Besides, it may continuously display pop-up alerts warning you about an excessive amount of corrupted files, outdated registries or even viruses. However, the most important thing that you have to remember is related to the reliability of Tech Hubby alerts and scan results. It may exaggerate those results by filling them with invented files, registries, and threats. However, after clicking ‘Fix it’ button, you may be redirected to a purchase website and asked to buy a premium version of Tech Hubby tool. Before buying it, think twice because you may not only spend your money for a useless application, but may even disclose your credit card details to cyber criminals. Be aware that Tech Hubby is capable of removing only a small amount of registries; therefore, it’s not very likely that your PC’s performance will be improved. In contrast, continuous scans and alerts can annoy you to death. Therefore, if you suspect that you have recently installed Tech Hubby virus on your computer along with another freeware, run a full system scan with Reimage (Windows OS), Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus(Windows OS), or any other reputable anti-spyware and get rid of it.
How can Tech Hubby hijack my computer?
Like the majority of PUPs, Tech Hubby is usually promoted via other freewares and sharewares. Such distribution method allows freeware developers to monetize their products; thus, it’s not surprising that so many freewares contain ‘additional components’. Tech Hubby ads, alerts, scans, redirects and other unwanted and unexpected activities may be prevented in advance if you would install free software carefully and install freewares without attachments. In order to detect hidden components, make sure that every time when you install a freeware on your computer you opt for Advanced or Custom installation option and follow the entire process step-by-step. NOTE: make sure that you unmark all ticks that are marked alongside ‘optional components’.

Besides, don’t forget that such popular websites as download.com, soft32.com, softonic.com, cnet.com, etc. are the ones that are most frequently involved in the distribution of software packages.
