Issue: How to Uninstall PC Medic?

Please tell me if PC Medic is a reliable app? I did not install it intentionally, but it keeps popping up on my screen and nagging me to purchase the license.

Solved Answer

PC Medic is a PC optimization utility developed by Defender Security Limited. According to its developers, the tool is capable of speeding a slow PC, removing and preventing errors, speeding up slow startup, preventing freezes, crashes, fixing Windows Registry errors, cleaning junk files, and initiated a bunch of other tasks that should improve PC’s performance. Indeed, sounds good, but the question is why so many people are looking for instructions on how to uninstall PC Medic from Windows.

In fact, PC Medic is classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). That’s because its free version is disseminated on the Internet as a part of infamous freewares (method known as bundling), which is why it starts performing PC’s scans and fixes without asking for PC owner’s permission. The free trial scans the system regularly and informs PC owners about supposed errors and problematic system’s locations. However, although the names of the error and other technical information provided on the PC Medic scan log may be realistic, the scanner and results are bogus. That’s a tactic used by software developers to nag PC users to buy a full version of the software.

showing PC Medic removalAnother reason why PC Medic is dubbed as a PUP is complicated removal. Typically, legitimate software has an uninstaller and can easily be removed via Programs & Features applet on Control Panel. Unfortunately, but that may be impossible with this utility. Many people complain that they can’t get rid of PC Medic pop-ups and scanners because there is no such program available on the Windows apps list, so it cannot be uninstalled. The others claim that the PC Medic removal fails with an error, which says that the “Application is currently in use and, therefore, cannot be removed.” Anyway, if you are not satisfied with the presence of this utility and opt for its removal, we will help you to do so.
