PC Privacy Dock is a program that supposedly can remove files that are “clogging and crowding your hard drive.” Our malware researchers have found that this beneficial-looking tool is just another PUP (potentially unwanted program). On top of that, it functions in the same way that PC Cleaner Pro and Optimizer Pro do, which suggests that these programs might have been created by the same company. Unfortunately, these programs do not fulfill their promises, which is why our researchers also identify them as fictitious system optimization software. The creators of this software promise beneficial services to trick users into installing it; however, once installed, they push users to pay money and contact remote technicians. If you delete PC Privacy Dock, you will stop the pushy recommendations, but this is not the only reason to remove this software.
Tweaklogy.com/pc-privacy-dock.php is the official page representing PC Privacy Dock. Unfortunately, other sources could be promoting this unreliable program as well. If you installed this PUP from its official pages, it is most likely that you would not need to worry about the removal of other infections. However, if you trust unfamiliar software distributors, it is very likely that you will need to remove PC Privacy Dock-related malware.

If you want to learn more about these threats and their removal, enter their names into our search box on the right. Even though PC Privacy Dock is not considered to be as dangerous as the infections that could be installed with it, this PUP is not completely harmless.

For the same reason, we also do not recommend contacting 1-855-243-6800.
