Remove Tachyon Internet Security 5.0
What is Tachyon Internet Security 5.0
Tachyon Internet Security 5.0 is a rogue anti-virus program that pretends to be a legitimate security program. It’s advertised as a capable tool that will remove malware and keep your computer safe. However, the program is actually more of a pest than anything. It will install without permission and will annoy you with notifications about supposed issues on your computer. Many other fake security programs do this as well. They aim to scare users into thinking that their computers are infected with serious malware and then offer to fix everything. However, not for free. Tachyon Internet Security 5.0 will ask that you first buy the full version of the program if you want it to remove the issues it has detected. Instead of buying the program, you should delete Tachyon Internet Security 5.0.
The program is available for download from its official website but many users have reported it installing without permission. This is possible via software bundling. Software bundling is essentially adding additional items to programs. Those items are usually useless programs like adware, browser hijackers and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). This will be explained in more detail in the following section of the report.
How did Tachyon Internet Security 5.0 install
The program has an official website, which is where you could have downloaded it from. However, it’s unlikely that you came upon this program in particular when searching for security tools. It’s more likely that the program installed without your explicit permission, via software bundling.
Like we mentioned above, software bundling is adding extra offers to programs. Most free programs will come together with those offers, and they will install alongside, unless you manually prevent them from doing so. Most users do not deselect the offers because they are hidden. In order to make them visible, you will need to opt for Advanced (Custom) settings during freeware installation. Those setting will make the extra offers visible and you will be able to deselect all of them. All you really need to do is uncheck the boxes. After you have done that, you can continue installing the program.
Uninstalling PUPs can be tricky business and become very annoying very quickly. So if you want to save loads of time and nerves, prevent them from installing in the first place.
Should you remove Tachyon Internet Security 5.0?
If you were to go to the program’s official website, you’d see the program advertised as a powerful anti-malware tool. The program comes with features like anti-virus, integrity verification, PC Management, PC Optimization, Firewall, etc. All these features make it seem like it’s a good program when in fact it’s actually a menace.
As soon as it installs, it will start showing you notifications about supposed issues on your computer. The issues may range from minor ones like unnecessary files to serious ones like malware. There could be tens of issues found. However, keep in mind that the program is likely showing you fake results into order to encourage you to buy the full program, which is necessary to use the program’s removal features. Buying the program is the last thing you should do. If you were to look into the results, it would be fairly obvious that they are nonsense.
There are countless programs like this. They all claim your computer is full of issues, convince you to buy the program and them pretend to solve all the issues. These programs are fraudulent, and you’re better off doing a bit of research and investing money into a reliable anti-virus program.
