Guys I recently installed some free software from the internet. Ever since then I have noticed a program called My PC Backup being installed in my system. I hadn’t installed it myself, and I believe it is some sort of malware. So can anyone tell me what my  PC  backup is and how to uninstall it from my PC?

I don’t think it is a virus or MyPCBackup is a virus. You probably just didn’t check the program you installed if it added another application during the installation. Most of the time, the installers of applications you download from the internet is bundled with another application.

That means when you install the program, somewhere in the installation it will ask you if you want to install the other application being displayed. In my experience, the option to install the second application is selected by default. Now, if you don’t read most of the information being displayed during the installation like most users do, you will end up installing the second application also.

This is not a virus but a form of advertisement or promotion to make the program known to users or to reach possible customers. In your case, that what’s happened. Maybe during the installation, you did not pay much attention to the information being displayed but just kept on clicking “Next” to go on with the installation.

If you want to know what the program is all about, visit MyPCBackup.com to know more. It is actually a backup service offering users 1 GB of free online backup storage. If you are still in doubt that it is a virus or malware, download and install Sophos Virus Removal Tool and scan your computer.
