TweakBit PC Repair Kit - How to remove

TweakBit PC Repair Kit (aka PCRepairKit) is supposed to make a slow PC run like new with its fixes, but it’s labeled as a potentially unwanted program by a few antivirus programs. Although it is not malicious, most people will probably not benefit from TweakBit PC Repair Kit; PC optimizers often have problems with making their findings look more serious than they are and they may end up making the PC run a bit slower.

In short about TweakBit PC Repair Kit:

How TweakBit PC Repair Kit gets installed

TweakBit PC Repair Kit is being advertised on other software download sites and on torrenting sites. It also spreads in promotional emails.

I have seen complaints that fake Windows virus warnings online have also been used to advertise TweakBit PC Repair Kit. Pages like “Antivirus update is prepared” and similar ads claiming that your computer was hacked. These pages may be called things like “” and “”, but they have absolutely nothing to do with the real Microsoft.

Unfortunately, it’s not rare for PC optimizers to use fake virus alerts to pressure users to buy them. These may even lead to tech support scams, where people pretending to be Microsoft’s employees manipulate victims into giving away remote access to their computer and paying hundreds of dollars for fake support. TweakBit PC Repair Kit’s people would claim that they don’t know about these marketing tactics and that maybe one of their affiliates is misbehaving.

It’s also entirely possible to find and install TweakBit PC Repair Kit on one’s own, voluntarily. The program is functional and some people may find it helpful.

TweakBit PC Repair Kit problems

Besides the deceptive marketing, TweakBit PC Repair Kit is also not all that helpful. For example, it uses severity gauges on some “issues” that don’t warrant that. Like other optimizers, it tries to appear more useful by detecting more problems – even if that means detecting harmless items. And it’s one thing to give users an option to delete cookies and temporary files, as redundant as that is. It’s another to mark them as issues of some severity, warn about them with alerts, and imply that these are things in need of fixing.

Not to mention, TweakBit PC Repair Kit also tries to edit your registry, which is risky and not advised unless you absolutely trust your program. It’s not like editing the registry helps anything, as it’s tiny and makes no difference to PC performance, plus Microsoft does not advise using registry cleaners. That doesn’t stop TweakBit PC Repair Kit from implying that it can improve PC performance by cleaning and defragmenting the registry.

A bigger problem is that TweakBit PC Repair Kit’s pricing is not very clear. At first, it’s not obvious whether you’re buying the program once or paying for a subscription. Subscriptions range between 3, 6, and 12 months. Some people complained that they didn’t realize that they were only buying 3 months of subscription. This made them unhappy, considering how pricey TweakBit PC Repair Kit ended up being.

Oh, and as if that’s not enough, TweakBit PC Repair Kit bundles File Recovery. It appears as if File Recovery is free, but this is also a subscription-based program that costs $19.95.

How to remove TweakBit PC Repair Kit

In the end, TweakBit PC Repair Kit is a standard PC optimizer, not much different from Optispeed or the Mac version called TweakBit Mac Repair. Although the PC Repair Kit itself is not any worse than most optimizers, its marketing tactics and the way that information is conveyed about the pricing leave something to be desired.

The company TweakBit has had a shaky reputation for years, with people complaining about being unable to remove their programs, invalid charges, dubious pop-up ads, etc.

To remove TweakBit PC Repair Kit:

  • quit the program, as it’s probably running in the background,

Alternatively, you could use an anti-malware scanner, like Spyhunter or Malwarebytes, to remove it.
