PC Adware Diagnosis Tool

Editors' Review


Like some sort of cyber Chicken Little, this tool consistently finds adware threats on your computer that must be dealt with immediately. PC Adware Diagnosis Tool is a long name for a simple executable file that runs in seconds and tells you that you must take action by downloading another program to remove the threats it finds.

The interface is nothing more than a window that opens with a few questions. Regardless of which answer you select, the scan takes only seconds and you're advised to take immediate action by clicking a link that will direct you to a program designed to remove spyware and adware. The only good news about PC Adware Diagnosis Tool is that it doesn't install to your computer so you won't have to waste any more time by removing it. Although the publisher's description would have you believe that the so-called tool will remove threats, it doesn't. Oddly, the program it leads you to is by a different publisher.

Don't bother with this misleading download. It can't solve PC adware problems, and we doubt its ability to identify them.
