What is Healer Console?
Healer Console is a potentially unwanted program that tries to pass for a system optimizer. System optimization tools are already rather suspicious applications as they are, so you definitely should not trust this one, especially if it enters your system uninvited. Please read on to find out more about the program and how to get rid of it. If you do not remove Healer Console immediately, there is a possibility that you might face more serious security problems in the future. Potentially unwanted programs are not malicious computer infections, but they can always be exploited by malevolent third parties, so you should be careful.
Where does Healer Console come from?
This program is another version of the System Healer application. We have discussed that program before, so basically anything that was applicable to the previous version can be applied to this application, too. Perhaps it should be pointed out that both programs share the same homepage at systemhealer.com. The website functions just fine, and it even has a working direct download button.
Okay, you might say, but what if I did not download it from the official site? How come this program is still there? Your point would be valid, but here comes another point about potentially unwanted programs. Their official websites are seldom their main distribution sources. The chances of users coming across those websites and downloading programs willingly are very low, so they need some other means to spread around. And Healer Console, just like other programs in the same category, employs software bundling to cover a wider range.
Software bundling refers to a phenomenon when several applications are bundled into one package and distributed via a third-party installer. These installers are usually hosted on third-party file-sharing sites or some blogs that discuss one program or the other. Considering the potential risks behind downloading programs, it is obvious why computer security experts discourage users from getting programs at third-party sites.
What’s more, if this program seems to have come out of nowhere, then it is really possible that it came bundled. And if that REALLY happened, you probably have several unwanted apps on-board, slowing down your system. Needless to say, when you get to remove Healer Console, you should terminate all the other threats as well.
What does Healer Console do?
When we take a look at the program’s website, we are greeted with various promotional lines that say this program “saves you time and does wonders.” Also, if you use this program, your computer “works faster and does the job better.” And finally, Healer Console also “helps protect your privacy online.”
If you have been experiencing odd computer behavior lately, it might seem that this program could help you deal with that. But if you were to run a full system scan with Healer Console, you would not be able to check whether the results are reliable or not. The program would ask you to purchase the full version of the application. In other words, Healer Console would only “clean” your computer if you bought the program’s license.
Now, the question is whether this program can really detect system errors and fix them. In fact, most of the system optimization tools simply delete temporary files without checking you need them or not. They could also perform particular modifications on the system registry, clamping down on certain system’s functions. What we are trying to say here is that such programs are hardly reliable and you definitely should not tolerate Healer Console. When a program gets installed on your computer without your permission, you should not even question whether you should keep it or not.
How do I remove Healer Console?
Once again, let us make it clear that our main problem with Healer Console is not that it is a malicious infection (which it is not), but the fact it might have arrived without user’s permission. Luckily, these programs can be easily removed via Control Panel, and there is no need to worry about potential leftovers.
Nevertheless, after manual removal, you should scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner to find other unwanted apps that are bound to be there. When you delete them, you should also make sure that no similar programs enter your PC again.
