The tool should clean the disk and registry from unnecessary entries and files, optimize the performance, and affect the speed of the device, improve the time online. However, this is an undesired program that shows predetermined issues and solutions for false errors, so you can fall for the scam and believe that all the problems are related to your device and pay for the full license of this “assistant”. But the payment for 30 days of all functions costs you at least $70 or can go up to $210 for a 120-day subscription. 

Nevertheless, there is no need to install the free version of this program or pay for the licensed version, because all the functionalities are false and not that valuable, int he first place. OBERONBOOSTER virus is considered to be a potentially unwanted program for the questionable distribution method, in the first place.

Do not let government spy on you

The government has many issues in regards to tracking users' data and spying on citizens, so you should take this into consideration and learn more about shady information gathering practices. Avoid any unwanted government tracking or spying by going totally anonymous on the internet. 

You can choose a different location when you go online and access any material you want without particular content restrictions. You can easily enjoy internet connection without any risks of being hacked by using Private Internet Access VPN.

Control the information that can be accessed by government any other unwanted party and surf online without being spied on. Even if you are not involved in illegal activities or trust your selection of services, platforms, be suspicious for your own security and take precautionary measures by using the VPN service.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer from data losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Ransomware can encrypt and hold files hostage, while unforeseen power cuts might cause a loss of important documents. If you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work. It is also equally important to update backups on a regular basis so that the newest information remains intact – you can set this process to be performed automatically.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware strikes out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the data restoration process.
