PC Support Center Removal Guide

Do you know what PC Support Center is?

PC Support Center presents itself as a very useful application for resolving computer issues. It claims on its official website that it will make sure that you have the newest software, save your CPU and RAM to make your PC run faster, and enable you to find the software updates easily. The program really seems to be useful at first sight, so the fact that thousands of computer users downloaded and installed PC Support Center does not surprise us at all. If you are one of those users, we suggest that you remove PC Support Center immediately. We will explain you why we have a negative opinion about PC Support Center further in this article and will also help you with its removal.

Our security specialists have conducted a research recently and found that PC Support Center is a typical potentially unwanted program. The program itself is about the size of 5.5 MB, and it is mainly installed to C:\Program Files\PC Support Center\. If you visit this installation folder, you will notice that it consists of a number of files, for example, libcurl.dll, callcenter.exe, OpenAs.exe, zlib1.dll, and others. If you see these files, there is no doubt that PC Support Center is installed on your computer. You have probably done that yourself or it has entered your system without your direct permission.PC Support Center Removal GuidePC Support Center screenshot

Once installed, PC Support Center starts performing several main activities. Our specialists have managed to find out that it starts displaying various pop-up warnings. You will see them in the bottom-right corner. These pop-ups usually inform that something is wrong with the PC and users are offered to dial the given number for technical support. Below are listed the pop-ups which users see the most frequently. It has to be mentioned that the information is sent to the server (http://service.pc-support-center.net/event/?guid={guid}&source={source}&version={version}&event={key}) every time a pop-up message is shown to the user.

As can be seen, PC Support Center simply promotes a suspicious telephone number and it will not act beneficially, i.e. it will not fix any PC issues unless you dial the provided number. It might seem that contacting Tech/PC Support is the smartest way to fix all the PC issues; however, we do not recommend doing that because you might call a premium-rate number. In addition, somebody might try to steal your personal information. The pop-ups themselves might become really irritating after some time as well because they will keep appearing on your desktop and you will have to close them yourself.

Furthermore, we do not think that PC Support Center can be fully trusted because it starts together with Windows without permission. Our researchers say that its file callcenter.exe is loaded in the HKLM registry with a startup name “callcenter.” It creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to be able to function and show pop-up warnings from the moment the PC is turned on. To our knowledge, all 100% legitimate programs inform users how they are going to act and always ask for permission. As PC Support Center does not do that, there is no doubt that it has been put into the category of potentially unwanted programs not without a reason.

Last but not least, we also think that it is really suspicious that links placed on the official website of PC Support Center (pc-support-center.net) redirect to http://www.ispeed.club/welcome.php?utm_source=mm&utm_campaign=relatedoffers&utm_medium=relatedoffers. Our researchers say that this might mean that the publisher of PC Support Center can be associated with other programs too. It promotes them on the web to earn money mainly.

PC Support Center has an official website and can be downloaded from there; however, we believe that it is not so easy to find its website and download it consciously. Therefore, we have tested alternative methods it employs to enter systems. We have managed to find out that this potentially unwanted program comes bundled as well. Users usually get these bundles from third-party web pages mainly. If you tend to download many programs from Softonic.com and other similar web pages, be very careful all the time. Our security specialists recommend installing a trustworthy antimalware tool on the system too.

If you do not like the pop-up warnings appearing on your desktop several times a day, you have to uninstall PC Support Center from your system. We are sure that you will not regret doing that because this threat is not very trustworthy. The program can be deleted via Control Panel. In case you have never tried erasing any kind of program, use our instructions (see below), or scan your system with SpyHunter.
