What is FixMyPC?
FixMyPC is categorized as a potentially unwanted program.

In such a case, it would be wise to ignore all the potential advantages of keeping the application on your PC. Do yourself a favor and remove FixMyPC today by following the instructions provided at the bottom of this article. Should you require any more guidance with ensuring your system’s stability, please leave us a comment and we will reply as soon as possible.
Where does FixMyPC come from?
Our security researchers say that FixMyPC should have an official website that is part of the program’s distribution network. However, when we tried accessing tweakbit.com/fix-my-pc, the connection timed out, and we were not able to load the page. Thus, it is evident that direct download is not the main distribution method employed by this program.
It is far more likely that this application came in a software package. For example, if you indulge in freeware downloads on a regular basis, there is a big possibility that you have several unwanted applications running on your system. Third-party installers often include random applications in the setup, and users are usually too impatient to check all the installation steps, that would, actually, allow them to avoid installing the likes of FixMyPC.
What does FixMyPC do?
Our tests have shown that this program is a scam application. This means that it does not live up to its promises. Although the captures of the official website claim that FixMyPC is a “powerful tool to repair and fine-tune your system,” the program does nothing of the sort. It behaves just like Pro PC Cleaner, PC Optimizer, Super PC Optimizer, and many others.
Once the application is installed on your PC, it performs a full system “scan” in just five to ten seconds, and then it displays a lot of errors you supposedly need to address. Take note that the errors are shown even on entirely clean computers. Thus, it is obvious that the application was programmed to display fake errors to push the unsuspecting users into purchase the full version of the program, and consequently spending their money for nothing.
The program only takes up space on your system, not to mention that it could be associated with some particular computer security threats. If you want to keep your PC safe and clean, you must terminate FixMyPC right now.
