Do you know what TechAgent is?
If you enter the official website of TechAgent, you will notice immediately that this program is compared with a “personal technician” there. It is said that it will “assist you in any PC matter, 24/7”, so many users install it willingly on their computers. We believe that people who use Mozilla Firefox as their default browsers download and install this application themselves not as frequently as users of other browsers, e.g. Google Chrome and Internet Explorer because Mozilla Firefox blocks techagent.co, which is the official website of TechAgent. This immediately indicates that the application is not fully trustworthy, and it is better not to install it; however, if you have already done that, you should remove it because it will not do anything very beneficial to you. As TechAgent is not a very reliable application, and it does not seem to be very beneficial, we have put it into the category of potentially unwanted programs. You will find out why it is so if you carefully read this article. If it happens that you make a decision to remove it after reading this report, feel free to use our manual removal instructions which you will find placed right below this article.TechAgent screenshot

If a user installs TechAgent on their computers, or it manages to enter the system in a different way, it immediately creates two tasks in the Task Scheduler. It creates one of them to be able to start working when the Windows OS loads up. The second task it creates allows it to launch every 6 hours automatically, which means that the application will be working again in the background after 6 hours even though you close it. The only way to close it permanently is to delete it from the computer. To be frank, it is not worth keeping this application installed because it does not do anything very beneficial. As our specialists have managed to find out, only a new window at the bottom-right corner of Desktop appears after the installation of TechAgent. As you will find out quickly, it tells users to dial the provided number 8554815344 to “resolve all PC issues such as network connections, software installation, printers and much more.” Specialists do not think that it is a very good idea to dial this number because it might be a premium-rate number. Also, nobody knows whether the technical support can be trusted and it will not try to convince you to buy an expensive program which you do not need or try to extort personal information from you.
Our researchers have decided to call TechAgent a potentially unwanted program because it has been found that it can travel in software bundles and thus enter computers rather secretly. You have probably installed it accidentally too if you cannot remember downloading this application from its official website techagent.co. If you have some knowledge about computers, you will not only notice its entry in Control Panel after its infiltration on the computer, but will also see a bunch of new registry keys created, for example, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechAgent. In addition, you should find its main folder in such directories as %PROGRAMFILES%, %APPDATA%, %USERPROFILE%, and %ALLUSERSPROFILE%. Of course, it will not leave anything there if you remove it fully from your computer.
It should not be too hard to remove TechAgent from the system because this untrustworthy application can be deleted through Control Panel. Of course, we understand that it might not be very easy to do that for the first time, so we have prepared the manual removal instructions exceptionally for our readers. Do not hesitate to use those instructions to remove TechAgent; however, if you wish to eliminate other untrustworthy programs and components from your PC as well, you should scan your computer with an automatic malware remover, such as SpyHunter because our instructions will help you to delete TechAgent only and an automatic tool will delete those other untrustworthy programs for you quicker.

In non-techie terms:
Security specialists have noticed that people usually install untrustworthy software on their computers if they download programs from questionable third-party websites and do not read the information on the setup wizard when installing new software. In addition, all of those users do not have a security tool installed on their computers or the one they have is untrustworthy.
