Universal PC Mechanic is a doubtful PC booster, so if you installed it on your system, we would highly recommend reading more about it. For starters, users should know the tool is classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). It means the application might be unreliable and have some undesirable qualities. Our specialists believe the tool could be useless too even though its developers might claim it may significantly boost the device’s performance. What’s more, it appears to be that Universal PC Mechanic could also be distributed through unreliable channels and some users may even install it accidentally. All things considered, we recommend eliminating the PUP at once, and if you choose to follow our advice, you should take a look at the deletion instructions located at the end of this report.

To begin with, we want to start with the software’s possible distribution channels. Despite the fact Universal PC Mechanic can be downloaded from its homepage called smartsystools.com, we would not be surprised if it was being spread through bundled software installers too. This way users could add it without even realizing it because while some prefer choosing automatic installation, there is a chance the PUP might be deselected only by picking custom settings. The same could happen with other PUPs, adware, browser hijackers, or even possibly malicious applications, which is why we would recommend being more cautious the next time you download anything from torrent or other P2P file-sharing networks. Besides being attentive, the user might also strengthen the system and guard it against various threats by merely installing a reliable security tool. Thus, if you do not have it yet, we advise you to at least consider such option.

Specialists who tested Universal PC Mechanic report that the application does not boost the computer’s speed. During the applications scan, it was noticed it might locate issues that do not make any difference to the computer’s performance. What we mean is deleting them would most likely have no effect and the device might work just the same. Furthermore, our researchers say the detected suspicious Registry keys may not be harmful as they might have been left on the system after removing various programs and tools. Still, the PC boosters pop-up claimed “these errors can be critical to the performance of our PC” and urged us to buy the paid version to “fix all issues within seconds.” As you realize, the only thing this PUP does is scans the computer, and if the user wishes to fix any issues, he is asked to buy the upgraded version. If the user refuses to do so, the application should show reminders in the system tray that keep proposing to make the payment and activate Universal PC Mechanic. Needless to say, as the software might be completely useless we do not think it would be wise to spend any money on it. If you wish to buy a program to maintain the system clean and protected you should acquire a reliable security tool instead.

We do not think there is any use in keeping the free Universal PC Mechanic version installed, especially with the reminders to purchase the full version as they could get quite irritating. Consequently, we recommend erasing the PUP at once. Users who feel up to the task could follow the instructions located at the end of this paragraph and get rid of this suspicious PC booster manually. The second option is to acquire a reliable security tool and let it deal with the unwanted application for you.
