PC Smart Cleanup is a potentially unwanted program because it offers a doubtful function, and you even have to pay to use the application. What’s more, sometimes the program might get installed on your computer accidentally when you roam the Internet. The bottom line is that if you did not want to have this application on your system, you need to remove PC Smart Cleanup immediately. And it would also be a good idea to scan your computer with a reliable antispyware application. Such unwanted applications have a tendency to travel in groups so you need to check for other undesirable programs, too.
Whenever we deal with potentially unwanted programs, we always emphasize that they are not malicious infections. The same applies to PC Smart Cleanup, too. This program has an official homepage and the direct download it available. Anyone can download the application from pcsmartcleanup.com, and it is easy to see that the program tries to pass for a useful system cleaner. However, what about those users who say that they never planned to install PC Smart Cleanup in the first place? Well, that probably proves that the official homepage is not the only distribution source for this application, and this would not be a surprise.
PC Smart Cleanup and other potentially unwanted programs tend to come bundled with other software. So it means that you installed this program on your computer willingly but perhaps you did not notice that. Also, sometimes the application could arrive at your system through various advertisements that you encounter when you browse the web. Please remember to refrain from clicking anything that pops up into your screen when you open an unfamiliar website. Sometimes the download might be initiated automatically without your intervention, so you have to be careful.
At first glance, PC Smart Cleanup will look like a nice program that can make your computer work faster. It is promoted as system optimizer, and it usually means that an application is there to clean some old files and maybe leftover registry entries. However, computer security experts always emphasize that such apps might accidentally delete important system files. And most of the functions or actions these programs offer you can actually perform yourself. For instance, PC Smart Cleanup says it can repair a number of “threats,” but in reality it simply cleans temporary files and clears browser cache. You can definitely do that on your own, without a third party program that will also ask you pay for the service.
It is probably more than obvious that there is no need to pay for the PC Smart Cleanup subscription because the program’s functionality is highly doubtful. It would be for the best to remove this application from your computer because there is no need to keep unnecessary applications on-board.
You can uninstall PC Smart Cleanup manually via Control Panel. That is the beauty of dealing with potentially unwanted programs: they are quite easy to remove manually. Nevertheless, you should still run a full system scan with a licensed antispyware application because you can never know what other undesirable apps might be hiding in your system.
