It appears that RegProtech might be one of those system optimizers that show fake positives to convince the user to purchase its license. Of course, we cannot be entirely sure since the application’s official website (regprotech.com) is currently unavailable and so the sample we tested did not work correctly. In any case, our specialists were still able to find out some details about it. For starters, users ought to know that the tool falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs. To find out more about it, we encourage you to read the rest of our report. Provided, you decide you do not want such an application on your system, you could check the instructions located at the end of the article to learn how to erase RegProtech manually. Needless to say, users who have more questions about it can leave us messages below our prepared deletion steps.

As we just explained, RegProtech is a potentially unwanted program, and usually, such tools are spread through various channels. Meaning, besides its official site (where it as available until recent) the application could be distributed with pop-up advertisements, bundled software installers, etc. We always advise those who do not want to receive such software not to download tools from file-sharing websites or other doubtful sources. Also, users should make sure that their chosen program was created by reliable developers and have no negative expert/user reviews. Besides, users who want to keep their systems clean and safe should also acquire a reliable security tool. It can be handy whenever you encounter suspicious material (e.g., email attachments from unknown senders) and want to be sure whether it is potentially dangerous or not.

According to our specialists, RegProtech settles in by creating data in the following locations: %APPDATA%, %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs, %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%, and %USERPROFILE%\Desktop. Also, it should create a Registry entry in the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall. Afterward, the potentially unwanted program should be ready to use. However, our sample could not launch since it failed at communicating with the software’s server. Our researchers say that before this, it is quite possible that RegProtech might have displayed fake scanning results as many other system optimizers that fall under the potentially unwanted programs category. Moreover, our specialists say it is doubtful users were able to get any issues deleted or fixed without paying for the application’s license too. Having to purchase a tool without being able to test it first could be risky as you cannot know if it will actually work as described. Therefore, we always recommend paying for software only if you are confident it will be worth the money.

Those of you who would like to delete RegProtech have a couple of options. The first one is to employ a reliable security tool. The user would only need to scan the computer with it and then press its displayed removal button that ought to appear after the scan. A bit more difficult solution is erasing RegProtech manually. Before its official site went down and the application functioned normally, it could have been uninstalled via Control Panel. Nevertheless, since it might not work anymore, we believe it would be safer to erase all the potentially unwanted program’s files one by one. The instructions located below will explain all the process, so all that is left to do is follow them carefully.
