Not all programs that you encounter online are beneficial. Take Apogee Pc Pro, for example. This potentially unwanted program (PUP) says that it performs several useful functions and that it can improve your overall system’s performance. However, computer security experts warn users that such applications seldom deliver what they promise, and it is not a good idea to trust them blindly. In fact, the sooner you remove Apogee Pc Pro from your system, the better. This program can go as far as collecting your personally non-identifiable information, and you most certainly need to avoid that. After all, your cyber security should be one of your top priorities.
We believe that there are at least several ways for this application to reach your computer. First, there is the official homepage at apogeepcpro.com. The download link works just fine, and if someone is interested in this application, they can easily download and install it directly. However, we would like to point out the peculiar coincidence here. There is another website that uses a similar name, and that is apogeedigital.com. This company sells electronic appliances, and we have not found any links between it and Apogee Pc Pro. It could be that whoever created this PUP just wanted to use a relatively known name to make it look more trustworthy.
On the other hand, PUPs, adware and other types of unwanted software often employ another method of distribution. Apogee Pc Pro might also come along in a software package with several other applications. This is what you have to be careful about when you download programs from file-sharing websites. The websites will not tell you about the additional apps that are hiding in the third-party installer. You may be notified about it during the installation, but if you breeze through this process without reading all the steps in the setup, you are about to have Apogee Pc Pro, and a number of other undesirable apps.
If you run Apogee Pc Pro, the program will perform a full system scan that will check your browser health, registry health, privacy health, startup health, and junk health. We are sure that this program will detect a lot of serious “errors” that you will have to address immediately. However, to fix those errors, the app will require you to purchase a monthly or annual subscription that would cost you either $14.99SUD or $119.99USD. But it is very unlikely that Apogee Pc Pro will really fix those errors because the problems they tell you about cannot be considered serious system issues.
Things like empty registry entries or temporary browser files (like cache) can be taken care of manually, and you do not really need a third-party application for that. What’s more, Apogee Pc Pro may slow down your system’s performance itself, and it can also start monitoring your online activity. Seeing how the program was most probably installed on your computer accidentally, you should remove Apogee Pc Pro right now. Follow the removal instructions below for a full manual removal. If you encounter difficulties trying to get rid of this application, do not hesitate to leave us a comment.
