MyPC HealthCheck is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) developed by Dual Tap Software Inc. The program offers a free system diagnostic scan and repair of any system and registry errors that might slow down user’s computer. Also, the program includes various kinds of pc boosters that supposedly should improve the speed of your computer. Anyway, despite the promises of the developers, the program will require a registration and further the payment, to be able to use all of the features mentioned above. And the free scan will find lots of errors, even on the brand new computer, which means that the objective of the MyPC HealthCheck is to scare users into purchasing the potentially unwanted program.
MyPC HealthCheck has also lots of problem with personal information security of the registered users. Basically, once registering you will need to provide your email address, name, home address, zip code and even a phone number. That data can be easily used against users or sold to third parties. Afterwards users will receive spam emails and calls from dubious websites and agencies. Also, some of the personal data can be used on the Internet to advertise suspicious products on users’ behalf, without their permission. We were not able to completely study the behavior of the MyPC HealthCheck adware, however we can clearly state that the program goes where it is not supposed to go, it changes system configurations, registry, hosts file and even messes up with the web browser.
MyPC HealthCheck can be downloaded from its official website, but the lion’s share of the installs comes from bundling. Bundling is the method used by the most of adware and malware developers and it consists in tricking the users and installing the third party software along with the freeware that user downloads from unofficial websites or via torrents. So, if users don’t pay attention during the installation they might install the whole package (bundle) of programs included within the installer. So, if you want to protect yourself from the installation of potentially unwanted programs, adware and malware simply follow the following rules. Read carefully the EULA of the program that you pretend to install, download programs only from the official websites and always select advanced installation option to be able to select what exactly you want to be installed.
