Your computer is not backed up, Backup your file online today is typically added when you install another free software (video recording/streaming, download-managers or PDF creators) that had bundled into their installation this program. Very often users have no idea where did it come from, so it’s not surprising at all that most of them assume that “Reminder! Your computer is not backed up” is a virus. This program is also bundled within the custom installer on many reputable download sites (eg: CNET, Softonic), so if you have downloaded a software from these websites, chances are that “Reminder!

The industry generally refers to it as a “PUP,” or potentially unwanted program.
When installed, “Reminder! Your computer is not backed up” program will add an icon to the user’s desktop as well as periodically popup a window to alert the user to run a backup and purchase the software.
The text of the MyPc Backup pop-up is:
