Remove “Your computer is ready to backup” pop-up virus

If you are seeing a “Your computer is ready to backup” when you startup your computer, then you have installed on your machine potentially unwanted program called MyPC Backup from MyPCBackup LTD.

Your computer is ready to backup 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 “Your computer is ready to backup” 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 “Your computer is ready to backup” was installed during the software setup process.
When installed the “MyPC Backup” 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 “Your computer is ready to backup” pop-up is:

Your computer is ready to backup
Your Windows PC has free computer backup software installed.
Click OK to register your computer and start a back up.

“MyPC Backup” is not a malicious program, however this program is bundled within the installer of other legit programs, and very often users have no idea where did it come from, so it’s not surprising at all that most of them assume that MyPc Backup is a virus.
You should always pay attention when installing software because often, a software installer includes optional installs, such as this “MyPc Backup” program. Be very careful what you agree to install.
Always opt for the custom installation and deselect anything that is not familiar, especially optional software that you never wanted to download and install in the first place. It goes without saying that you should not install software that you don’t trust.

Although the form itself doesn’t have to be sent to the IRS, it contains important information which regulates the relationship between employers and employees. Very similar to the reviews , that can be found there. Just make sure the reviews are honest and not scams.
