Your software PC Booster not working right?

Question

I purchased a PC Booster that was suppose to improve the speed of my computer, I really dont think it works right.

Anyway I have tried to uninstall it but it keeps telling me that I have to close it first, which I do but it still tells me when I uninstall that it cant as its still running.

I really want to get rid of it. I believe it has slowed down the speed.

What can I do to get this uninstalled.

If you close it, it's possible it still has tasks running in the TaskManager You need to find the process that looks like PC Booster's name PCBOOST etc something of this nature, I never used the program so I can't get you the exact name of the process, you might also want to check the

support section of the company that wrote the program for some tips on how

to remove it.

It's also possible to disable it from loading from running if you type in

MSCONFIG on start - > run then click on the startup tab find the pc boost

entry and uncheck it then reboot.
