What is MyPC Backup.exe and how to remove it?

Tell your friends:

MyPC Backup.exe - Cloud backup software by MyPCBackup LTD.

What is MyPC Backup.exe?

MyPC Backup.exe is the main executable file of a small Desktop application called MyPC Backup. This application is created by MyPCBackup LTD and digitally signed by JDI BACKUP LIMITED. It allows you to backup all of your computer files to the cloud. So, it's basically, just another cloud storage service. MyPC Backup.exe isn't malicious but since it comes bundled with adware and PUPs, most users think it's malware. Besides, it displays rather annoying pop up notifications every few hours in the right hand lower corner reminding you that your files are not backed up (see the image below). "Reminder: Your computer is not backed up, Backup Your Files Online Today". MyPC Backup.exe runs automatically each time Windows starts. Needless to say, it's not essential for Windows and may cause problems. Besides, if you are getting MyPCBackup.exe notifications then there's a good chance that your computer is infected with adware and potentially unwanted software. Especially, if you didn't install MyPCBackup yourself. It probably came bundled with adware. I recommend you to remove MyPC Backup.exe and from your computer and run a full system scan with recommend anti-malware software.

This Program and it's damn Popups were annoying the hell out of me. I don't know where I got it but rest assured if I find out I will never use their site or software again! Again thank you for confirming what I had already suspected.
