MyPc Backup.exe ist sehr nevig. Man holt es sich meist unabsichtlich mit Downloads auf den pc und schon ist das Problem da. Andauernd werden Fenster "Zur Optimierung des Pcs" eingeblendet und so weiter. Unter dem Link ist MyPc Backup (und auch unter vielen anderen Links) als Virus angegeben.

Best practices for resolving MyPC Backup issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with MyPC Backup. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem.
