Removal instructions for PC-Essence

1 post in this topic

What is PC-Essence?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that PC-Essence is a fake anti-malware application. These so-called "rogues" use intentional false positives to convince users that their systems have been compromised. Then they try to sell you their software, claiming it will remove these threats. In extreme cases the false threats are actually the very trojans that advertise or even directly install the rogue. You are strongly advised to follow our removal instructions below.

How do I know if I am infected with PC-Essence?

This is how the main screen of the rogue application looks:

You will find this icon in your taskbar:

How did PC-Essence get on my computer?

Rogue programs use different methods for spreading themselves. This particular one was downloaded from their site.

How do I remove PC-Essence?

Our program Malwarebytes Anti-Malware can detect and remove this rogue application.

  • Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to your desktop.
  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a check-mark is placed next to the following:

    • Update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware


    [*]Then click Finish. [*]If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version. [*]Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan. [*]When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results. [*]Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected. Reboot your computer if prompted. [*]When completed, a log will open in Notepad. The rogue application should now be gone.



Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of PC-Essence?

  • No, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware removes PC-Essence completely.


How would the full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware help protect me?

We hope our application has helped you eradicate this malicious software. If your current security solution let this infection through, you might please consider purchasing the FULL version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for additional protection.

As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware would have protected you against the PC-Essence rogue. It would have warned you before the rogue could install itself, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late.
