Fix My PC is promoted as a system optimization tool available for download from its official web page. The tool’s developers advertize Fix My PC’s ability to clean useless files, application leftovers, and system junk, but research shows that only a small part of the outdated registries gets wiped by the program. Fix My PC is classified as a PUP and scareware and its removal is recommended.

How Does Fix My PC Operate?

computer_fixedOnce installed, Fix My PC scans the user’s PC and reports a number of security issues detected on the machine. These scare tactics are mainly used to lure users into purchasing the full version of the product, which is supposed to fix the system errors, and clean the bad registries and junk described in the notifications. Experts consider the displayed scan results to be of no real value and recommend removing Fix My PC from the computer to avoid further infiltration of questionable software. The optimization tool is not labeled as reliable, and it is rather doubtful that buying it will speed up the performance of your system.

How Is Fix My PC Distributed?

Fix My PC can be downloaded from its official website. In case Fix My PC initiates scans and displays alerts on your computer out of the blue, then the program has positively entered your machine bundled with other software you have downloaded online. Additional applications are usually not adequately disclosed in the typical installation options, so users are advised to opt for custom/advanced installation in order to avoid confusion. Experts recommend users to disallow the installation of unknown plug-ins and add-ons for security reasons.
