Default Pchealth Argh

I dont know where it came from, it appears to be authentic from what I found on google. But it is seriously doing my head in. My computer is running perfectly, and when I am playing games online everything is spot on, until PCHEALTH inteferes by minimising my game, which take a while anyway, and telling me some crap about my computer not running a full capacity.

The only problem I have with my machine is pchealth continously interrupting my games to tell me I have a problem.

There isn't any obvious way to remove pchealth or shut it down

can anyone help?

Thanks muchly

No, I should have said. Its not on the add/remove programs list, nor does it get detected by adware programs probably because its a microsoft program. I even get a little flashing icon on the tray at the bottom right of the screen, but I can't select anything from it, nor does it show a name if you hold the mouse over it.

Its really annoying and nothing I've found on google is very useful.

ARGH: it just went again,hahah.

Anyway, thats doesn't seem to be an option. Thanks for the quick reply tho.

Online Assisted Support
Online Assisted Support provides a centralized location to obtain electronic support from Microsoft Technical Support Professionals.

System Restore
You can use the System Restore component to roll your system back to a point in time in the event that the installation of software or drivers causes instabilities in the operating system.

To start System Restore, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
