PC Activator is supposed to be an incredible tool. It promises to “enhance your PC speed and performance efficiently”. However, if PC Activator really was that useful, we wouldn’t be writing this article right now. You’re stuck with a potentially unwanted program (PUP). In other words, a virus. Apart from lying to your face, the parasite also exposes you to threats. This fake optimization tool has nothing but trouble to offer. It was developed to serve hackers’ malicious purposes. As you’re  about to see for yourself, PC Activator is very problematic. It starts scanning your machine immediately after installation. The installation itself usually happens behind your back. So do the scans. Despite looking rather legitimate, this program isn’t reliable. Instead of seeking your permission, it works in silence. The parasite then begins to generate pop-ups. All sorts of pop-ups. All the time. What they have in common is the fact they are bogus. You see, PC Activator attempts to involve you a nasty cyber scam. Its scheme is very simple and yet, very effective. The parasite pretends to be a perfectly safe application. That’s just the first of many lies to trick you into installing the virus. You cal learn more about malware’s tricky infiltration methods down below.  As soon as this pest slithers itself onto your machine, it starts scanning the target PC. It also generates security alerts, warnings, various messages and pop-ups. Keep in mind these are all fake. Their one goal is to get you to panic. PC Activator is aiming directly at your back account. Its pop-ups warn you about a whole pile of infections. According to the scan results, your device is filled with dangerous, aggressive, destructive parasites. None of the threats this program supposedly locates is real, though. If you trust its pop-ups for one moment, you might lose money. As mentioned, the virus is trying to involve you in a fraud. The pop-ups all claim that you need to download PC Activator’s full version. Obviously, it doesn’t come for free. You’d be paying to purchase a program that will do nothing. There are no infections on your PC in the first place (apart from the PC Activator itself). Do not believe any of this program’s fake promises and bogus threats. You only have one PUP to worry about. Keep your money and put your safety first.

How did I get infected with PC Activator?

There is a slight chance that you did install this application on purpose. Its official website claims PC Activator would improve your online experience. However, as you know already, this is a cyber infection. It usually relies on stealth and deceit to get spread on the Web. To prevent installation next time, be careful. Think in advance and don’t neglect your security. No type of cyber virus is to be underestimated. One notoriously popular technique is called freeware/shareware bundling. It is just as effortless as it sounds. All that hackers have to do is attach the parasite to some seemingly harmless bundle. Voila. You do the rest of job by skipping installation steps. We’d recommend that you opt for the Custom or Advanced option in the Setup Wizard. Pay attention to what you agree to install. Checking out the bundled programs one by one may seem like a time-consuming task. Having to uninstalling malware, though, is a much greater hassle. Go through the Terms and Conditions or EULA (End User License Agreement). This way, you’ll be able to spot any potential undesirable intruder on time. Also, restrain yourself from clicking open any spam message or email-attachment. Crooks could be very creative people when it comes to parasites. Hence, be careful online.
