Today, the Internet is full of seemingly useful programs that are advertised as the next best thing since sliced bread. PC Speedup Pro is one of those programs and you might want to remove it from your computer, because it is not a wise investment. It also has a few other issues that we are going to cover in this article. This program’s website claims that it will delete adware, malware, clean your computer’s registry, and fix various other issues, which is true to a degree. However, we found some of its result to be of questionable validity and it might secretly install other unreliable programs. Therefore, we have classified it as a potentially unwanted program. Please read this article and come to your own conclusions.
PC Speedup Pro is currently being promoted on a website called Pcspeeduppro.com that was set up by its developers. It also acts as its main center of distribution. Our research suggests that this program is currently not being distributed on freeware websites or bundled with other programs. However, this can change further down the line. One of the main problems with this program is that it might download additional unreliable software on your computer, such as adware and other potentially unwanted programs. However, we did not get any additional software while testing PC Speedup Pro. Now let us go into some details about how this program works.
PC optimizing programs similar to PC Speedup Pro usually do not give information about its scan results which make those programs untrustworthy. However, PC Speedup Pro’s developers were probably aware of this fact and have built in a View Issues window, but this window leaves much to be desired as it only displays the most obvious locations where malicious files are installed. Nevertheless, it appears that it is actually capable of detecting some potentially unwanted programs and adware as relevant issues in the Windows registry, but some of its detections are still questionable.
Typically of an unreliable PC optimizer, this program will redirect you to its purchase page when you click Start Repair. It must be noted that it completes its scan in less than 20 seconds which is way too fast, since a truly reliable program will take its time to make sure that it performs a thorough scan. PC Speedup Pro costs $31.64 USD which is a substantial amount of money. Of course, its developers have included several easy payment methods that via debit card and PayPal and even offers 60 days money back guarantee. However, we do not recommend testing your luck.
Overall, PC optimizer does not offer you the best bang for your buck. It is capable of detecting some malicious files, but on the whole, we do not trust its scan results. We have received reports that it might secretly install other unreliable software, but we did not get any of such programs while testing PC optimizer. So, whether you want to remove it or not is completely up to you.
