What is BoostMyPC?

From time to time a new PC optimizer like BoostMyPC emerges on the web trying to fool inexperienced users that they need such an application to increase start-up speed, enhance overall PC performance, and whatnot. The truth is that this is just another potentially unwanted program, or PUP, similar to Advance System Care, SystemKeeperPro, and Magic PC Cleaner. The main idea behind the free version of this PUP is to convince you that your PC is full of high priority system errors that need immediate fixing. However, the free version will not do that. So you are left with but one choice if you want to fix your system: You need to buy the full version. Unfortunately, even that will not make your PC run any faster really. We recommend that you remove BoostMyPC from your PC because it is no use to you at all. 100% FREE spyware scan and

Where does BoostMyPC come from?

It is possible but not very likely that you landed on the promotional website of this PUP,, wanting to knowingly install this application. When you search the web for a PC optimizer, there is little chance that this site would come up in the first few search results pages. Therefore, it is more likely that you get redirected there by clicking on corrupt third-party ads or compromised search results links. You may see a pop-up ad that claims that your system has critical errors and you need to download a cleaner by clicking OK or Install on this ad. If you are not an experienced computer user, you may even believe such a fake notification and your click could result in installing this useless PUP.

The problem is that when you click on questionable third-party ads and other contents, you may also drop a software package onto your PC that may contain a number of different threats and PUPs. Free software bundles may promote a legitimate free program but pack it with PUPs, adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, fake alerts, and more. Such a lot could seriously increase the general vulnerability of your virtual world even if a PUP itself cannot be regarded as a dangerous threat. If you do not want to download such packages, you need to stay away from questionable websites promoting annoying third-party ads. These websites are usually associated with porn, file-sharing, gambling, and gaming. It is also important that you do not click on just random third-party ads. You should know that when your PC is infected with adware, for example, you can drop infections or get redirected to malicious websites even when you click on legitimate-looking ads on reputable pages. If you have no clue how this PUP may have appeared on your system, we definitely advise you to run an online malware scanner that you can trust to detect all possible threat sources. But as a first step towards a secure machine, we suggest that you delete BoostMyPC.

How does BoostMyPC work?

This PUP seems to function very similarly to other useless PC optimizers and cleaners. If you install the free version, it will show you incredible scan results listing hundreds and thousands of alleged system errors. These can have different priorities but, obviously, the main goal is to make you believe that you need to act right now because there are so many issues to fix immediately, so you will find a great number of “high priority” issues as well. As a matter of fact, our malware specialists at say that this PUP simply lists all temporary files, unused or broken registry keys, and browser cache data. It is important for us to mention that even if you or this software removes these, your PC will not run any better or you will not really realize or feel any major difference. Well, to pay nearly $20 for the full version could be money down the drain when you can buy proper anti-malware program to protect your computer automatically for a little bit more. We believe that you should not keep any useless or questionable programs on board if you want your PC to be secure. Thus, we recommend that you remove BoostMyPC from your system.

How can I delete BoostMyPC?

Probably the only good news regarding this PUP is that you can locate and use its uninstaller in the list of installed programs in Control Panel. However, using this uninstaller somehow leaves behind a folder that you need to remove manually. Please use our guide below as a reference if you want to take matters into your own hands. Keep in mind that you cannot stop at this stage because there could be other threats lurking on your system, too.
