PC Health Advisor is promoted as a robust and all-in-one suite of tools that conveniently replaces the technical knowledge, multiple products and scans you would typically need to keep your PC in working order.

There are 2 versions of the program. The most sampled program is the free “evaluation version” that ParetoLogic claims is “used for diagnosing computer issues.” The program is only a scanner that remains locked to unpaid users. The program will scan a computer but it will not remove anything and all features and tools for the program will be inaccessible.

The program has 3 different subscription packages for 2 years, 1 year, and 6 months. The costs range from $24.97 USD per month to $49.97 USD per 2 years. You can also select to subscribe to the program for 1 computer, 3 computers, or 5 computers. The price will increase after each interval.
