What is PC Speed Up?

PC Speed Up is a legitimate program, which can also be called as a potentially unwanted program or a PUP. Beware that it may look like a reliable system optimization tool that is capable of increasing your PC's speed. Nevertheless, we can't guarantee that it won't help you in this case. In most of occasions, this application causes lots of alerts and then offers purchasing it for getting ability to remove detected issues. However, after testing it we must say that PC Speed Up can hardly do that because it mostly reports about unimportant hard drive's problems or displays an exaggerated list of issues. It seems, that by reporting about issues that can hardly influence the speed of computer, PC Speed Up seeks to create a need of its licensed version because it doesn't eliminate detected problems after checking the system. However, we don't recommend paying for it. You should be very careful with all PC optimization programs that are spreading around on the Internet. Besides, keep in mind that this program may gets inside the system without your knowledge. That's because it has been spread in a bundle with freeware and shareware. If it has already convinced you that this is a program, which is capable to make your computer run faster, you should check it with alternative tool. We think that you should never pay for PC Speed Up virus and remove it if it has appeared on your computer without your knowledge. You can do that with a help of SpyHunter


Mostly, PC Speed Up gets inside the system with user's knowledge. However, it may also enter computer in a bundle with freeware and shareware.

If you see PC Speed Up and you have no idea how it got inside your machine, you should know that there is a huge chance that you downloaded it with some PDF creator or video converter. As soon as this program gets inside the machine, it starts its work every time you reboot your computer. Typically, it shows how it scans the system and then reports about various errors and hard drive's problems.
