Remove WinPC Antivirus from Your PC

WinPC Antivirus is a rogue antivirus program that should be removed as soon as it first appears on your computer. If it isn’t removed immediately, then it will harass you with fake security warnings. It will attempt to run a fake scan of your computer in order to deliver a phony list of infections to you. These will be used to scare you into paying for the full version of WinPC Antivirus.

The full version of WinPC Antivirus is completely useless, however. It doesn’t remove any real infections that may have infiltrated your computer system, nor does it ward off future infections. It is a complete waste of money and it will hinder your computer’s performance dramatically.
