Content Cleaner program – is it safe to use?
When security vendors speak about Content Cleaner, they describe it as a system tool. This shady software pretends to be a reliable system optimization tool when in reality it is a hardly beneficial app, which seeks to earn money by convincing inexperienced computer users pay for some completely basic PC optimization services.
Content Cleaner is a potentially unwanted program (PUP), and its function is highly doubtful. First of all, we would like to point out the fact that Content Cleaner can be installed on your system without your consent. After this shady software sets its components in your Windows Registry, it will start to show misleading pop-ups for you. These pop-ups include Content Cleaner alerts claiming that your computer is infected or that you computer system has some problems that need to be fixed. Moreover, the Content Cleaner PUP might block access to legitimate websites on the Internet and prohibit you from reaching legitimate computer safety programs. Content Cleaner is going to try its best to make an impression that your computer security condition is awful and that this cleaner is your only hope to fix it. This program detects fake problems and attempts to convince you to buy the registration key to access the full version of Content Cleaner (which is supposed to fix your computer). Do not buy this key! Content Cleaner is a rogue software that you should not trust. This program is just a low-level computer threat that needs to be removed upon its detection.
The Content Cleaner software might slow your computer down, too, and that is going to make your browsing experience unbearable. As you can see, this fake computer optimisation tool can not provide any useful services, and this software should not be stored in your Windows Registry. We recommend you to uninstall Content Cleaner with a reliable computer security tool, such as Reimage. This program has gained a reputation through all the years dealing with spyware and malware, and it is a perfect software to keep your computer safe. It can scan your computer and remove various computer parasites with ease.
How does Content Cleaner hijack computer systems?
Even though Content Cleaner has a professionally-looking official website, it does not yet mean it is a safe or reliable program. In reality, computer users rarely reach this site at all. In most cases, this doubtful program is promoted with other freeware and shareware via the bundling method. That means Content Cleaner can be spread as an attachment to other free programs. These programs usually conceal the existence of Content Cleaner or similar PUPs under the most popular Default and Standard installation modes. However, you should not rely on these traditional installation modes as they are highly deceptive. We recommend opting for Advanced or Custom option. Then, the setup should provide you a list of recommended programs – opt these suggestions to install additional freeware out to refuse to install them. This is how you have to refuse to install the hidden software attachments.
