Even though WinRepair Pro looks like a decent PC optimization tool, we do not think that this piece of software is fully reliable, so we do not recommend keeping it installed. Hundreds of security specialists, including those that work at 411-spyware.com, classify this program as a potentially unwanted application (PUP). Of course, potentially unwanted programs are not as harmful as other infections, e.g. Trojans, so we cannot force you to remove WinRepair Pro; however, we are sure that the majority of users will decide to do that after they read through this article. Specialists at 411-spyware.com have prepared the manual removal instructions for these users and we have put them below this article.
Research has shown that WinRepair Pro has already entered hundreds of computers whose owners live in Belgium, Indonesia, and Russia. Of course, users from other countries are not safe too, so it is very important to be cautious all the time. It has been observed that WinRepair Pro is very similar to ProPCCleaner and Optimizer Pro which also claim to be reputable PC Optimization tools; however, there is no doubt that WinRepair Pro is installed on the system if you can locate the WinRepair Pro folder in C:\Program Files (x86) or C:\Program Files. Main files which show that WinRepair Pro is installed on the system are these: WinRepairPro.exe, WRPUns.exe, xmllite.dll, isxdl.dll, and others. What is more, it has also been observed that this potentially unwanted application (PUP) will create the following registry keys:
All these changes will be visible if you use Windows XP, 7, 8, or Windows 8.1 because WinRepair Pro is compatible with these versions of Windows OS.
At first glance, WinRepair Pro looks like a really trustworthy piece of software because its interface does not differ from other PC optimization tools available on the web. WinRepair Pro also immediately scans the system after it is installed. After it finishes doing that, it provides users with a list of system-related errors, Com and ActiveX errors, user-related errors, and Startup and Uninstall errors. The program should also detect and delete malicious applications existing on the system. It seems that WinRepair Pro is really capable of finding system errors; however, some researchers say that these scan results are not 100% reliable. What is more, it has been observed that WinRepair Pro will not fix system errors for free. We have managed to find out that it fixes only 15 errors for free. In order to fix the rest of them, you will have to upgrade WinRepair Pro, i.e. to buy its license. We have noticed that the license for one year costs 118.63 Euro. Of course, the price might vary depending on your place of residence. It is up to you what to do with this program; however, if it happens that you decide not to upgrade it, it would be best to fully remove it because it will still not do anything good, and it will launch the moment you turn on your computer.
WinRepair Pro is available on its official website winrepairpro.com; however, we are sure that it might enter systems somehow differently too. We have managed to find out that WinRepair Pro uses aggressive marketing methods, and it also comes bundled with other programs in unreliable software installers. It means that it might slither onto your computer without your direct permission too. What is more, it has been also observed that this potentially unwanted program might also install Internet Quick Access (potentially unwanted program) and search.realcoolmovie.com (browser hijacker). Of course, it will do that without permission. As there is a huge possibility that WinRepair Pro is not the only suspicious program installed, scan your system with a diagnostic tool (you can download it from our web page) to detect those undesirable programs. If it turns out that they are really installed, erase them immediately.
Luckily, WinRepair Pro can be removed via Control Panel, and it also seems that it does not leave any leftovers. Below you will find instructions that will enable you to delete WinRepair Pro from the system manually. If you have never tried erasing any kind of program yourself, you might find it really hard to get rid of WinRepair Pro by hand. In such a case, you should know that you can use an automatic malware remover, such as SpyHunter. Install it and then scan your system with it.
