Master PC Cleaner is a system optimization tool offering users a wide range of functionalities. The tool is presented as capable of fixing registry issues, browser add-ons related problems, and some more. However, the Master PC Cleaner software is more troublesome than useful because of its deceptive measures used to encourage inexperienced users to invest in the full version of the program. The system optimizer displays bogus system scan results. In addition, the deceptive tool is distributed by software bundles, so it falls to the category of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs).
There are many other deceptive programs aimed at making profit from inexperienced PC users. For example, Master PC Cleaner operates in a similar way as Advanced System Care, System Booster Pro, and System Keeper Pro, all of which are PUPs flagged by some anti-malware programs.
Potentially unwanted programs are very often identified by reputable PC security tools, so if you do not have a powerful malware removal program, you have probably failed to notice the installation of Master PC Cleaner. We recommend that you remove Master PC Cleaner as soon as you can; otherwise, you will be constantly provided with disruptive pop-ups and prompt warnings inviting you to update the scanner to the full version.
Master PC Cleaner may seem to be convincing because of its professional looking home page masterpcleaner.com, where the features of the program are provided as highly necessary and valuable. First, the visitor finds a statement that the software is coded by experts with a combined experience of 32 years, which would surely add some weight the software. Moreover, the software is said to be capable of improving the performance of the system by fixing the registry, removing adware, and managing system startup items that have some effect on the boot time of the system. Free lifetime product support is also accessible. To make all these features more relevant, Master PC Cleaner fakes system scans and shows false scan results rated as of the highest importance. For example, Master PC Cleaner supposedly identifies software that is vulnerable to malware attacks. In reality, non-updated software could be the cause for malware installation, but in the present case, you should not trust a piece of information delivered to you by Master PC Cleaner.
Not only does this PUP provides you with deceptive information, it also finds its way to your computer not in the best way possible. Master PC Cleaner can be bundled with other programs. Very often computer users ignore the information shown by the software installer and agree with all the terms given, in which case optional programs get installed inadvertently, causing some dissatisfaction in a matter of minutes or hours. If you suspect that Master PC Cleaner could have been installed accidentally when installing some different freeware, we recommend taking measures to prevent such incidents in the future.
Sometimes it might be insufficient to read all the terms and conditions displayed by the installer because software can be installed stealthily with the intention of accessing valuable information or taking control of the system or Internet browsers. This type of software is considered malware, or sometimes potentially unwanted, depending on how damaging it is. However, skimming through the terms is highly advisable because information about additional software might be somewhere in the text of the consent form.
In order to prevent malware or PUPs, it is essential to be aware of how such products are spread. Very often, dangerous software is spread by email. Clicking on links and attachments in emails sent from unrecognized senders is not recommended so as not to initiate malware installation, which is highly probable with spam emails. It is also worth considering whether connecting to an unprotected Wi-Fi network is necessary. If you want to secure your operating system against different types of malware and spyware aimed at making some use of you, implement a reputable antimalware program. Master PC Cleaner is not as damaging as ransomware or data-stealing Trojans, and you do not known when you might get into the target of cyber attackers.
