I wrote this article to help you remove System Healer. This System Healer removal guide is working for all Windows versions.

System Healer is a security tool for Windows. The utility deletes unnecessary data to help protect and speed up the operating system. System Healer eliminates temporary files, cookies and registry entries. The application also scans the hard drive and the incoming data for threats. It displays security alerts when it detects a harmful code. System Healer may sound like a useful program, but security experts do not believe so. Examinations of the tool have concluded that it captures harmless files which pose no actual threat. The purpose of System Healer is to convince the user there is malware in his system. The shady program offers help against the supposed threat in the form of its full version. Purchasing a licensed copy of System Healer would not enhance your security. The tool is a fake antivirus program.

What are the negatives of having System Healer installed to my PC?

The activity of System Healer will bring down your machine’s performance speed. The rogue tool will constantly scan your computer and return alarming results. The claim is that the program analyzes the system files and monitors the flow of data into your hard drive. System Healer displays notifications about unnecessary files piling up and malicious software entering the system. It urges the user to take action. In order to do so, you would have to acquire the full version of the program. The trial version has the ability to identify malware, but it does not remove it. This is a standard for AV utilities, but in this case the program is not considered to be reliable. Hence why we advise you not to purchase it.

System Healer lists ordinary cookies and temporary files as potential threats. Furthermore, the rogue program does not have the ability to detect actual malware. System Healer will not rid you of viruses. The optimization services of the shady program are not very effective, either. The data System Healer deletes does not have much of an impact on the computer’s performance speed. The tracking cookies and temporary files can be deleted by running a disk cleanup with the default Windows wizard.

The System Healer Virus

Having System Healer delete registries could be harmful rather than beneficial for your OS. The fake antivirus program does not have the ability to tell between ordinary and malicious entries. The rogue tool could end up deleting essential entries. This will slow down your machine and perhaps even lead to system crashes. It is best not to allow System Healer to work on your PC.

System Healer costs as much to have as a legitimate antivirus utility. The single user license is $29.95 USD. In addition, there is an Automatic Windows Backup option. The kit costs an extra $9.95 USD. The current price of System Healer is advertised as a limited time offer where the program is 63% off. Either price is quite high for an application with such functionality. The investment would not pay off.

How did System Healer get installed to my computer?

You may or may not have decided to try out System Healer at your own will. The program does have an official website. It is registered to the domain address systemhealer.com. The software belongs to a company from Warsaw, Poland called System Healer Tech Sp. Zo.o. There is a download link for the trial version of the tool on its official website. Despite this, the bogus AV program is often distributed through a clandestine propagation vector.

System Healer travels with other shady tools. Freeware, shareware and pirated programs are potential hosts for the rogue application. When adding a program to your system, you should read its terms and conditions. This is where the covert tool would be secluded. You will have to deselect it by hand. It is advised to opt out of bonus software, offered with the main program. The extra tool could be malware.
