What is Microfast PC?

Microfast PC is a genuine registry cleaner that has been developed by a company known as Optimum Software Technology. The tool is described in a very appealing way and offered to purchase a full version in order to get a full range of services. Unfortunately, you should better think twice before installing this registry because it is categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). That’s because it is also distributed via software packages and tends to infiltrate users’ computers without asking for an appropriate permission. As soon as it infiltrates the machine, it may pretend to be loading scanners and scanning your computer every time you turn on your computer. After that, you may receive an alert showing you how many registries, corrupted files, and other issues have to be fixed on your computer. Please, DO NOT fully trust Microfast PC scan results because most probably they are fake, i.e. inform about invented system errors in order to scare you into thinking that your PC’s performance is poor due to the outdated registries and similar things. It’s very likely that one of the reasons why your computer’s performance has diminished is the installation of Microfast PC virus.

Of course, Microfast PC cleaner might delete several hundreds of outdated registries if you buy its licensed version (for $30). Unfortunately, in order to improve PC’s performance, thousands of outdated registries have to be removed. It means that this tool is useless and can trick you into spending a considerable amount of money for nothing. Thus, in case you have already installed it, we recommend you to check you machine with a reputable anti-spyware, for example, Reimage (Windows OS) or Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (Mac OS X).

How can Microfast PC hijack my computer?

Microfast PC is neither harmless not useful. It means that it’s one of the apps that should be avoided. Most probably security experts wouldn’t have been started investigating this app if they wouldn’t have been found spreading it alongside other freewares (download managers, PDF creators, media players, games, etc.). Such distribution method is not fair and people have to be aware of each program that is promoted via software packages because the majority of them should not be trusted. If Microfast PC gets inside, it may start showing misleading alerts, pop-ups and continuously scan your machine. This way, it may seriously disrupt your web browsing activities, but may also slow downs overall PC’s performance. In order to prevent installing such and similar apps on the system, we highly recommend you to select Advanced or Custom installation option for initiating freeware’s installation and follow the entire process with an intention to opt out of ‘additional components’.

How can Microfast PC hijack my computer?
