What is PCKEEPER?

Is PCKEEPER a scam and  nuisance?

Answer
Answer

I found PCKeeper installed on a laptop that contained lots of various adware and other PUPs (potentially unwanted programs).  Since the owner did not recognize it or purposefully install it themselves, it had likely been installed by one of the other unwanted programs.

PCKeeper, however, was the only program I was able to uninstall using the standard Windows techniques as displayed on their website at the following.  I would recommend attempting to use this method followed by a system reboot before trying any of the other more extreme techniques mentioned in those other posts.

So though as already mentioned above I wouldn't recommend its use, I suspect it was merely installed on that system by one of the other undesired applications, likely as an affiliate paid installation.
