PCTuner is a program that promises to optimize your system in less than 5 minutes. The program seems really useful at first sight; however, you should still be very cautious with it because it is known to be a potentially unwanted program (PUP). If you wonder what this category says about PCTuner, you should know that this program might start acting in an undesirable way. If you ever notice that, you should remove PCTuner without further consideration. Of course, it is advisable to get rid of this program if you have found it useless or simply are not going to upgrade it.
You will definitely notice that PCTuner starts scanning your system the moment you install it on your system. After doing that, it will show you a list of errors that have to be fixed. If you click the Fix it button, you will notice a pop-up window claiming that you have to contact the “certified technician” by 1-844-883-2489. We do not recommend calling this number because it might be a premium rate number. In addition, it is not known whether somebody will really help you fix those errors. Finally, it is not known whether the scan results can be fully trusted. Therefore, we suggest that you remove PCTuner as soon as possible and install a more trustworthy PC optimization tool on your system. We will provide you more information on the removal of this potentially unwanted program further along in this article.
It is advisable to get rid of PCTuner not only because it is not completely trustworthy and does not do anything beneficial, but also because it will keep showing a warning message claiming that your PC is infected with malware every 30 minutes. It will be impossible to close this window. Luckily, it will disappear after some time. As can be seen, PCTuner might not even allow you to use your computer freely, so it would be best to remove it from your system. Unfortunately, there are other similar PC optimization tools on the web, e.g., A1PCCleaner. You have to be cautious in order not to allow them to slither onto your computer. As you probably know, the best way to protect your system from suspicious programs is to install a trustworthy antimalware tool.
You can easily remove PCTuner via Control Panel. Our instructions will definitely help you to do that. Of course, we understand that less experienced users might find the removal of PCTuner rather difficult. If you are one of them, you should know that you can scan your system with SpyHunter or another tool and all the suspicious programs will disappear from your system in the blink of an eye. On top of that, your system will be protected from various malicious applications that might try to enter your system in the future.
