Has anyone tried this? IT poped up on my computer out of the blue skies.

You don't want to have that you should run an updated malwarebytes scan. It is not a good sign that it just showed up on your PC.

Did you install any applications recently? It very well could be malware, but it also could have piggy-backed as an offering with a legitimate installation. I'm seeing it a lot now.

To remove the program completely, simply go to your control panel, by clicking Start -> Control Panel-> add / remove or programs & features. Next select "PC HealthBoost" from the menu, and click "Uninstall" and follow the simple instructions.

The product / program is made by "Boost Software" or a division of that company.

It's basically a registry cleaner. I installed it to see what it does, it found 136 errors on my machine then it wanted me to register for removal of the errors, I'd guess it might ask for money at that point. It also created a registry run key entry so it would run at start up. I uninstalled it through the programs & features list.
