How to Remove Win Tonic? – Uninstall and Removal Instructions




Win Tonic is a Potentially Unwanted Program. Which means, as the name already states a Potentially Unwanted Program in short a PUP. Win Tonic is software that notifies the user with many intrusive pop-up alerts the computer is damaged, contains a virus or needs a junkware cleanup etcetera. The Win Tonic application advertisements are very intrusive to the PC user.

Many of the problems the Win Tonic demands the PC user to fix are easy to solve with other free software you can download from the internet, such as CCleaner. The real problem with Win Tonic is that it’s similar to the deceptive distributing methods affiliates or distributors use to force unaware PC users to install the Win Tonic software. Win Tonic is offered by using false pop-up ads from lp.pctonics.com, which are triggered by adware applications. Reimage Repair ads use the same intrusive and deceptive method of forcing users to install their software.

Win Tonic is right in one thing, yes the PC is damaged by adware and should be fixed. However, not using Win Tonic as adware publishers force the user to install Win Tonic with the adware they installed on the users PC.

First adware is installed on the users PC with free downloads you can find anywhere on the internet. After the adware infection, the same adware tells users to clean their Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10 PC with Win Tonic using deceptive and very intrusive pop-ups from lp.pctonics.com.

It’s the user’s choice to install and use Win Tonic. However, we do not recommend Win Tonic. The message “unwanted items found” included 4, so called, virus infections and 457MB of junkware.

The PC we infected with adware, had many more virus infections (as we installed them ourselves). Which indicates Win Tonic could… be useful for junkware removal, but not for virus removal. Once again, we do not recommend Win Tonic!
