How To Remove MyPC Backup
MyPC Backup is a Windows backup utility program developed by JustDevelopIT. It may be a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), as it will silently install itself onto your system without your authorization.
It is typically distributed in a bundle with other third party applications such as DeltaSearch Community Toolbar installation.
After MyPC Backup has been installed, an icon will be added to the user’s desktop triggering ads and pop-up windows prompting you to run a backup and pay for an upgrade. The techniques MyPC Backup uses to persuade people into paying for product upgrades are aggressive and considered highly invasive.
No matter how trustworthy MyPC Backup may appear, the notifications received should be treated with caution. Otherwise, you may be tricked into paying for software you don’t need and potentially end up downloading viruses that could infect your computer.
