QuickHealCleaner is a rogue security application that reports false or exaggerated system security threats and displays fake security alerts to trick you into purchasing the program. The rogue application is from the same family as SystemCop, BlockDefense, SaveDefense, Trust Ninja, SaveSoldier. Once installed, it will list a variety of infections and then prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove non-existing system security threats. Do not purchase this program and uninstall QuickHealCleaner from your computer upon detection.

Quick Heal Cleaner is promoted through the use of Trojans and other malicious software. It enters a computer without user’s consent and knowledge. However, this misleading application can be downloaded and installed manually as video codecs or drivers. Attention!!! Don’t mix it with Quick Heal antivirus, because this one is legal and does not pose any harm!

While active, Trojans display fake security alerts and notifications from Windows Task bar. Usually Trojans state that your computer is under attack or that your antivirus software is disabled. Then they suggest purchasing QuickHealCleaner which will supposedly provide full system protection. Fake security alert reads:

“Your system is at risk of being hijacked or damaged. Harmful software is currently running. These active processes may lead to the leak of your personal data and the extermination of your machine.”

While running, QuickHealCleaner will simulate system scan and display various bogus infections just to scare you. What is more, it will constantly display fake security alerts about serious infections and system errors. You will also see warnings about privacy violations. Do not trust this program. It’s nothing more but a scam. Please use the removal guide below to remove QuickHealCleaner from the system manually for free.
