FixCleanRepair is yet another all-in-one PC optimizer and protector tool that has proven to be somewhat unreliable; therefore, it has been labeled as a potentially unwanted program or PUP. As a matter of fact, this software has exhibited some traits that make it questionable. For example, it is capable of showing third-party advertisements that might even be harmful to click on. It may also use a rather suspicious method to spread on the web that may expose you to even more malware infections. All in all, having this PUP on your system is not very healthy with regard to your virtual security. Removing FixCleanRepair is our advice if you would like to keep your computer safe.
This PUP has a fairly modern and decent-looking website at fixcleanrepair.com where you can learn that FixCleanRepair is a “revolutionary computer software program created to enhance the performance and remove errors of home computer.” However, we have found that this PUP is a rather simple application that mainly scans your Temp folder and your Windows registry for errors, unused files, and entries; virtually, nothing serious or hardcore. There are lots of trustworthy applications on the web that you can choose from. We recommend that you carry on with your search because this software does not seem to be the one that can save you from all the trouble malware infections can cause you. The free version will not even fix any of the alleged errors it finds. Obviously, it may even use scare tactics to make you pay for the full version, including telling you that your PC performance is low, your PC is not protected, or your Windows registry is not optimized.
Unfortunately, not all the users who have this PUP on their computers downloaded it directly from the official website. We also have found FixCleanRepair in free software bundles packed with malware programs. If you have downloaded freeware recently or downloaded this software from a freeware website, it is quite possible that your bundled version contained some unwanted “surprise.” You need to be very careful where you download free software from. Choose your source wisely because it is quite easy to end up with a bunch of infections on your computer if you click on the wrong button on a questionable shareware site. In this case, it will not be sufficient to delete FixCleanRepair only. You also need to take care of all the other threats that may have come in the same bundle.
If you want to clean FixCleanRepair from your computer, you can do it simply via Control Panel. Open the list of installed programs in Control Panel and run the uninstaller; as simple as that. But do you think that your computer will be all clean of infections now? We recommend that you run a full system scan. You can use a free online malware scanner for that. But make sure that the one you are planning to use is a reliable one. When the scan returns with the results, you had better act. It is quite likely that there will be other infections to take care of. We do not advise you to start eliminating them manually one by one. That would be a tedious task even for an expert. Maybe it is time for you to protect your system with an effective malware removal application. Whatever you decide on, do your research before you actually install any security tool.
