PC Reg Boost’s developers say that this program is a system cleaner that is able to clean your PC of useless and temp files, clean the registry and detect all invalid entries that might slow your PC down or lead to critical errors. That’s what decent system scanner has to do. Unfortunately, PC Reg Boost is not a decent program, as it doesn’t have any functions at all! This program has absolutely no features and is able only to fake the scanning process and display the fake results. The result will always be terrifying. Even if you’ll run PC Reg Boost on a new, perfectly clean system, it will found hundreds of errors and will advise you to call 1-855-804-1796 for assistance. This is the first red flag, because modern programs don’t need any remote control to remove the registry errors. Imagine that you need to call to the tech-support service of your AV-tool each time when it founds a virus or adware. It’s nonsense but still, many users believe it.

When you call the specified number you begin to suffer from fraud scheme. The point is that the number is highly expensive, and the operators are well trained to keep you on the wire as long as possible. They will ask the program number of your Windows or your credit card number. The story is the same each time: you’ll hear that the system is critically damaged, and you have to buy some exotic program to fix it, or accept the remote access. In both cases your computer will be exposed to any virus that scammers would like to put in it. Even if user begins to suspect something – he already paid a lot for a conversation with scammers, and their basic goal is achieved. As you see, PC Reg Boost has nothing in common with helpful software, and should be removed from your PC as soon as you discovered it there. In the next part of our article we will explain you how you can remove PC Reg Boost without any consequences.
