    PCKeeper?

    A friend of mine keeps getting this pop-up claiming
    problems. I told him not to click on anything it suggests.

    I haven't seen it and hence can't provide more details

    Is anyone familiar with this

    It appears to be "dubious ware" (you can download it from CNET)...some love it, some hate it.

    Suggest your friend create a System Restore point first, then do the following...

    1. Download and run "adwCleaner".

    2. Download and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware".

    3. Download and run "Junkware Removal Tool".

    It seems to be a legitimate "PC tune up" utility with some nasty advertising habits.

    Personally, I never use PC tune up software as it is usually less than useful. If you want to keep your computer clean of leftover files etc, try CCleaner free.
