System Healer is a potentially unwanted program currently bundled with many other free programs installed by users. You may give your permission for this software to become the part of your computer if you fail to read the freeware installation guidelines carefully.

System Healer is advertised as some program that will supposedly fix your PC and make it work as fast as it can. Once installed, the application starts its so-called scanning which, by the way, lasts for a few seconds. However, the program claims that it has found a lot of PC Performance, Registry Items and Privacy Concerns issues, which supposedly need to be fixed. Then, of course, this System Healer will offer you to heal these issues, however, it will tell you that payment needs to be made by you for its registered version.

Trust us, this behavior of System Healer program is a typical scam. It really acts like a rogue security program. The only difference from rogue application is that this System Healer has the installer which is bundled with other programs. It also has the direct uninstaller, by the way. But this doesn’t mean that this application is legitimate. It was simply designed to get your money, without actually rendering any decent services.

You may trace the presence of System Healer application in your PC by a special desktop icon called “Launch System Healer”. Also, soon after the fake scanning another pop-up message will appear in your PC, marked as “Healer Console”:
