What is PCHealthFix?

PCHealthFix is distributed as a 'PC optimization' software program that works by cleaning the PC's registry whose purpose is to remove redundant items from the Windows registry. The usefulness of registry cleaners is controversial and the software may make no distinction as to the severity of the errors detected and thus may erroneously categorize errors as critical.


During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up (this is typically done to avoid any UAC prompts). A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The main program executable is PCHealthFix.exe. The software installer includes 14 files and is usually about 10.69 MB (11,206,141 bytes). updater.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
