PC Reg Boost

What is PC Reg Boost?

Research has shown that PC Reg Boost is an annoying and possibly unreliable program. It is not malware, yet it shows annoying pop-up windows that you cannot close, so our malware analysts have classified it as a potentially unwanted program. Therefore, you might want to remove it, but it seems that this program’s scan results are reliable, so it can clean up your PC a little bit. However, the annoying thing is that its developers have made this program to show you the pop-up messages and obstruct you computing experience because they are desperate and want you to buy the program or call their tech support number.testtesttest

Where does PC Reg Boost come from?

Allegedly, the company that made this application is based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. However, typically of a potentially unwanted program, there is no information about the company that developed it. There is no history of its programs released prior to this one, so something is definitely not right with it. However, the uninstaller says that this program was published by iNextITNetwork. For more information on this publisher, please visit its website at Inextitnetworks.com.

Nevertheless, PC Reg Boost has a polished promotional and distribution website at Pcregboost.com that features this program’s download. The site features a standalone installer and the installation is straightforward. However, this application is by no means popular, so its developers have resorted to other, less transparent methods of distributing it. Our cyber security experts say that PC Reg Boost is also distributed using software bundles. Their installers might hide this program in the advanced installation menu and install it automatically without your knowledge or authorization. The websites that should feature these bundles are not that well known, so they do not have much traffic to them. Researchers say that the bundled installers might be promoted via ads on third-party websites, so you might get PC Reg Boost in a bundle that was promoted on an unrelated website.

What does PC Reg Boost do?

There are many things going on with this application. It tries to be many things but succeeds in very little, it seems. It is a PC optimization and cleaning tool that primarily focuses on cleaning the registry as there are always old empty keys that the program can regard as a threat while it is not. PC Reg Boost is supposed to clean up the installer references, fix application, ActiceX/COM, installer issues, and delete empty classes and so on. However, if you want full protection of your PC, then you have to contact tech support 1-855-804-1796 and also buy the full version of this application. Researchers consider this program unreliable because it was designed to nag you continuously by showing you pop-ups informing that your PC has numerous errors and that you need to call tech support to fix them. However, it is clear as day that the developers of this program want to convince you to buy it. While the decision is entirely up to you, we believe that this program is not worth the money and suggest that you uninstall it.

How do I remove PC Reg Boost?

Our cyber security experts have concluded that PC Reg Boost is a potentially unwanted program due to the fact that it shows annoying pop-ups trying to convince you to contact their questionable tech support staff. Without a doubt, this application was created to fix your registry issues, but we do not think that it is that useful. If you want to remove this program, you can uninstall it via Control Panel.
