What is PC Support Center?
PC Support Center looks like a very useful application at first sight.

The application seems to be really attractive, so it is not surprising that many people download and install it on their computers. If you are one of those users, it is up to you what to do with PC Support Center; however, we do not think you should keep it because it is not as beneficial as it claims to be.

How does PC Support Center work?
After PC Support Center is installed on the system, it creates the folder PC Support Center in C:\Program Files (x86) or C:\Program Files, depending on the version (e.g. 32-bit or 64-bit) of Windows installed on your computer. This folder will contain such files as callcenter.exe, openAS.exe, libcurl.exe, libeay32.dll, and msvcr120.dll. It is also very likely that it also modifies the system Registry in order to be able to start together with Windows all the time. Yes, you will not need to launch PC Support Center yourself because it will do that automatically and will work from the moment you turn on your computer. Finally, it has been observed that it creates the default.ini file after the installation. Its code shows that PC Support Center sends “messages” to the main server that the event, e.g. a pop-up warning, has been completed.
We do not think that PC Support Center will make your programs run quicker; however, we are sure that you will see various errors on your screen after you install it on the system. It has been observed that these errors will warn users about CPU problems (“CPU PROBLEM”), the limited space of hard disk (“HARD DISK IS ALMOST FULL”), the problems of Internet connection (“INTERNET CONNECTION PROBLEM), and the presence of suspicious files (“UNKNOWN FILE TYPE”). The program does not do anything to fix those errors, but offers users to contact the computer support by telephone. (1855) 852-8520, which will be shown in the pop-up messages, might be a premium-rate number. In addition, there is a possibility that a user will be asked to provide his/her personal details. People might also be offered to buy a “miraculous” tool for PC. We do not think that it is worth calling this support center. In fact, we do not even think that these pop-up messages say truth; it is more likely they just want to convince you to call the given number. The observation that links on the official website of PC Support Center redirect users to http://www.ispeed.club/welcome.php?utm_source=mm&utm_campaign=relatedoffers&utm_medium=relatedoffers also confirms the fact that PC Support Center might be created to generate money only. It seems that the owner of PC Support Center has other similar applications as well.
Even though PC Support Center is promoted on its official website pc-support-center.net, not all the users download and install this program from there. Research carried out by the specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com has shown that this program might also travel bundled in software bundles. In other words, PC Support Center might attach to legitimate free applications and enter systems together with them. In most cases, users notice that PC Support Center is installed after the installation of a program from some kind of third-party web page or a torrent website, so we are sure that software bundles are available on these websites primarily. If you tend to download programs from such websites frequently, our first suggestion for you is to install a reputable security tool on the system. In addition, you must be really careful all the time.
