IST Cleaner Pro. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Julie Splinters - -   Also known as IST Cleaner Pro virus | Type: System tools

IST Cleaner Pro is a very questionable program that you should trust with carefulness. This application is promoted as a PC optimization tool that should allegedly clean bad registry entries, corrupted files and malicious programs. Once IST Cleaner Pro enters computer, it scans the system and reports about hundreds of bad registry entries. It is a catch because in order to remove these entries people are asked to buy a “licensed” version of IST Cleaner Pro program. We highly recommend not to do that because you can easily be left without the money. Such programs can hardly improve computer's speed because they report only about a minor part of bad registry entries. Moreover, if you decide to buy IST Cleaner Pro 'licensed' version, you may be tricked into revealing your bank loggins and other private information that later may be used for identity theft and cause you a money loss.

How can IST Cleaner Pro appear on my computer?

We have noticed that IST Cleaner Pro virus usually travels around bundled with freewares. If you want to avoid it, you should be very careful with free programs you are installing from unknown sources. Also, you should check whether these programs have any questionable attachments and opt out of them, so don't rush the installation process, follow closely every step of the installation and opt our of any unwanted/suspicious attachments, such as IST Cleaner Pro virus. Of course, you can easily download this PC optimizer from its official website but you should think twice before doing so. IST Cleaner Pro is one of those programs that seek to scare people and want to create in them a need to purchase their licensed versions.
