PC Cleaner Pro 2018 is one of those useless programs that claim to clean your PC as well as boost its performance, but this one certainly fails to do so. This software actually goes as far as claiming that it can "boost your PC up to 300% faster," which should be ridiculous to any user. This potentially unwanted program (PUP) is just as a scam as AutoClean Pro 2018 and High PC Booster. As a matter of fact, such a PC optimizer is most of the time a scam because they use forged reports to convince unsuspecting users to buy the premium or full version so that they can fix those alleged critical system errors. Since this PUP may also enter your system along with malware infections, chances are you could be exposed to corrupt third-party web content every time you go online. Engaging with such content could lead to further infections or online scams as well. This is why we suggest that you remove PC Cleaner Pro 2018 from your computer.
Just like in the case of AutoClean Pro 2018, there are a number of websites promoting this PUP officially, including pccleanerpro.net and pccleaners.com. We have found that some of these sites have already been shut down but some are still up and running. It is possible that they also promote an older version, too, since this PUP was first released back in 2014. If you have never visited any of these official sites and you still have this software on board, it is likely that you will find more serious threats on your system as well. This may already be a good reason to delete PC Cleaner Pro 2018, but let us give you more.
Have you installed a free program lately? Because that may easily be the reason why you have this useless PUP on your computer. When you download a free program or a crack from suspicious file-sharing websites, you always risk downloading a bundle of PUPs and malicious threats, such as adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, keyloggers, and fake alerts. We advise you to always use official and reputable websites whenever you download programs or updates. As you can see, schemers can create professional-looking websites anytime, too. This is why you should only go for ones that have good reputation. A quick web search can help you with that. But right now it is important that you run a reliable online malware scanner after you delete PC Cleaner Pro 2018 so that you can see what you are up against.
As we have already said, this PC optimizer is no better than any other scam in this category. When you run your first scan with the free version, it will return displaying thousands of system errors, lot of them marked as critical. However, if you look closer, you can find that most of these alleged errors are made-up false registry entries or useless temporary files. Even if you cleaned these from your system, it would not boost any visible percentage, let alone 300%. Our tests show that even if you use the full version, which will cost you $29.97, it may not even do anything substantial on your system but simply show you a different scan result with different errors and much less of them. However, if you were to use the free version again to check your system after this paid version finished "cleaning" it, you may find out that it will come up with thousands of system errors again. This is why we call it a scam. And, this is why you should not hesitate to remove PC Cleaner Pro 2018.
Fortunately for you, it is quite easy to eliminate this PUP since you can use its uninstaller via Control Panel. If you have never uninstalled an application, please use our guide below as a reference. But do not forget about the possibility that you will find other threats on your system, too, which may be way more dangerous, in fact. If you cannot detect and remove those with certainty, we recommend that you employ a reputable anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter. This system security software can automatically take care of all your present and future threats, thus providing you with the well-deserved peace of mind. Of course, you can also try to protect your computer manually if you become a more cautious web surfer, but there is no guarantee that you can avoid all malicious attacks or even potential threats this way.
