PCommander Virus Removal Guide

Description: PCommander is rogue security application that is related to the well-known fake antispyware Control Center. It uses scare tactics to try and induce users into paying for its license. PCommander reaches the user’s system via Trojans that get downloaded along with other malicious software as well as fake video codecs. Once installed, PCommander blocks Windows utilities such as Task Manager and Registry Editor to prevent the user from attempting to remove it. It also performs a large number of fake security scans on the system and comes up with a lot of fake infections which it claims are plaguing the user’s computer. The aim of all this activity is to try and get the user to purchase a license to the ‘full’ version of PCommander by claiming that the currently installed ‘trial’ version is insufficient to remove all the detected ‘threats’. However, the so-called ‘full’ version of PCommander is just as incapable of cleaning out any computer system as the ‘trial’ version is.
