PC Antivirus Pro?


Hi Guys,

My grandad’s laptop has a pop up that comes up that says ‘PC Antivirus Pro didn’t install properly, try re-installing” and it comes up whenever he starts the machine. I can’t find PC Antivirus Pro online to install/remove so I’m stuck trying to get rid of the window that pops up!

Any ideas what programme this is and how to remove it?

Here is an image of the pop up and you can see the icon in the dock:

Thanks!

Try Malwarebytes and Adwcleaner, they are good at finding unwanted programs and remnants.

Also, get an adblocker like uBlock Origin, many of these PUP’s spread via ads and affiliate sites etc.
