People are concern about My PC Backup software as malware or virus.
I can understand people’s fears because some people didn’t know precisely where MPCB (MyPCBackup) came from.
In this article, I share with you some tips on how to remove MPCB on your computer.
How I Learned About MPCB
I did a review a while back.
The reason why I’m writing this article is that someone who read one of my reviews had some concerns about MPCB.
She felt it was important for people to know about MPCB because of security risks.
Begin that a lot of people probably download MPCB onto their computers through MyFlexJob, she was concerned that people’s information may be vulnerable.
That touched a chord with me because I don’t want people to have their privacy violated.
Not only that, but some people were also having a hard time getting rid of MPCB from their computers.
What I Found Out
I found out through research that some people don’t even realize they downloaded MPCB because of free software they might have downloaded.
Then people would experience getting all these pop-ups on their computer and wonder if they have a virus or malware on their computer.
Through my research, I really want people to be careful about what they download onto their computers.
I personally try to avoid downloading anything on my computer especially when it’s from a service I’m not very familiar with.
What Is MyPCBackup?
MPCB is a service that backup your files and personal information.
Just so you know it’s not free and they offer different rates depending on how many files you’d like to backup.
How To Avoid Downloading MPCB
If you’re going to download anything, make sure you have control over what you allow onto your computer.
You can do this by unchecking any additional software that you don’t want to be download.
Do this by reading carefully each step that is taken to get the software you want to get downloaded.
How To Cancel Your Account
If you paid for MPCB and are not satisfied with their services, you have up to 30 days to cancel your account. You can do so by phone or email.
You can cancel your account through email at cancel@Mypcbackup.com.
If you want a refund, I would suggest going through their billing department.
You can call this number at 1-888-851-0954 or email MPCB at billing@Mypcbackup.com
My Son Downloaded MPCB
I check my son’s computer regularly.
He has autism and I have no idea what he does on his computer.
When he’s at school is when I tend to clean his computer out.
I always check to see if he downloaded anything onto his computer.
One day I noticed MPCB on there.
I nearly panic because I didn’t want that on his computer.
How To Remove The Software
The first thing I did was looked at what he downloaded on the day MPCB was downloaded. I noticed that Chromium was also downloaded.
What I did was uninstalled everything he downloaded that day including MPCB. I then ran CCleaner and Malwarebytes.
It was a while back and I can’t remember if I noticed a virus or not when I ran Malwarebytes, but I was able to get rid of MPCB.
What Did Other Articles Say About MPCB
I read articles after articles. I found 2 articles that I thought were great reads.
The first one was by a site called pcmag.com. I loved the word Michael used near the end of his article and that word is nefarious, so I will quote his sentence.
MyPCBackup isn’t exactly nefarious, as I’d at first suspected. By MICHAEL MUCHMORE
The other site I came across was a site called malwaretips.com.
If what I did was a little on the meek side to get rid of MPCB, here is another site that goes extremely deeper than what I did.
Just so you know some of what he uses I didn’t try so it’s entirely up to you if you want to try this.
I think Stelian Pilicid went into detail on what you can do if people are having trouble getting rid of MPCB.
I did read a comment in pcmag.com that someone uses MPCB for a year and then started to have trouble.
According to the comment, all they did was uninstall the software and their computer was back to normal.
All In All
Whether you feel that MyPcBackup is some kind of malware or not, I think it doesn’t hurt to run a scan for whatever virus protection that you prefer to use. You know the saying, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
If you are the type of person that doesn’t run a virus scans on your computer regularly, I’m going to tell you to do it, Lol. I run a virus scan daily, but usually, once a week is a good idea.
I hope I gave people some useful information and tips so they can feel comfortable using their devices.
I also want to give a shout out to the person that encouraged me to write this article.
