removal by Linas Kiguolis - - | Type: System tools

One Click Speedup is a system optimizer which claims that several issues with your device were detected after a supposed PC scan 

One Click Speedup 

One Click Speedup is the rogue tool that is advertised as your PC guardian. However, this is a potentially unwanted program that shows false positive results of a system scan to convince people that the machine is infected or has other problems that require fixing. Developers of this program claim to offer system optimization, cleaning services, and speed up the performance of your PC. Once the system check is performed on your machine and the tool detects possible errors, you need to purchase the activation key for 35,95 euro to get the full version of the software, that can fix all the issues and clean malware activated.

Nevertheless, the full version of One Click Speedup rogue software also does nothing positive for the machine. It only cleans the list and eliminates all those pre-determined scan results stating about particular intruders or system errors.[1] You shouldn't trust any of these claims and avoid even installing the tool from promotional advertisements or even the official sites belonging to PCVARK – developers of many other PUPs.

One Click Speedup virus gets this name because of the unwanted and suspicious activity when it appears on the machine out of nowhere and starts showing information about the possible danger or damage. Microsoft even has an opinion about such tools since programs like that often affect registry entries and can cause more damage than the pre-determined scans show.[2] 

The main goal of the tool is to convince users that their device has problems, malware, and other issues because the full OneClickSpeedup version can allegedly fix them all and improve the general performance of the PC. Unfortunately, even the pricy version of the optimizer cannot fix real issues with the machine.

One Click Speedup PUP not only comes to the machine without permission, but the tool also loads the shortcut icon on the desktop, start menu, and pins the program in your taskbar. These steps are needed to ensure the difficult elimination and uninstallation process. Users always complain that the tool is persistent and annoying because of these features alone.

OneClickSpeedup is promoted on the internet, via various promotional content like any other product from PCVARK, so people can even download this tool on purpose. During the installation, people should notice red flags and other PUPs included in the setup. This is the main feature that determines the questionable purposes of the tool.

One Click Speedup PUPOne Click Speedup is the program that claims to offer professional technical help and promotes a program that allegedly fixes all the errors and virus infections. However, this licensed tool does nothing as well.

Unfortunately, One Click Speedup tool tricks many people into installing the program and even purchasing the activation key for the licensed version. When the software has its own official download page, it seems to be legitimate and safe. Not in this case.

One Click Speedup is only one of many system optimizers that claim to offer all those features of system cleaning, registry entry organizing, and malware termination. All those issues are fake, and probably the only cyber infection your PC has is the main PUP causing all the unwanted commercial content.

Since this tool is nothing but a potentially unwanted application, One Click Speedup can access and track data regarding your online preferences or browsing history. This is a common feature of all these programs because the main sponsors and distributors are advertisers. 

When your device gets affected by such a tool, every click on the redirect or a pop-up generates views and revenue for the ad-supported page. One Click Speedup removal should be performed as soon as possible, so this data recording ends before any personal data gets accessed.

You can remove One Click Speedup by uninstalling the tool itself from the machine, but that doesn't ensure that all the intrusive behavior ends. So we as any other expert[3] recommend using automatic antivirus tools like Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego or SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner and scanning the machine thoroughly.

One Click Speedup virusOne Click Speedup PUP is the fake system optimizer that causes more damage to the machine, although it claims to fix various issues with your device.

Fake system tools come as an additional part of the freeware installation setup

Even when you download the program from the official and legitimate-looking website, you can risk getting the potentially unwanted program or a suspicious tool alongside the program you intended to get. You should always read the EULA or Privacy Policy section of the website to make sure that the distributor is reliable.

Also, opting for Advanced or Custom installations allows you to see all included and possibly bundled programs and remove unwanted ones from the list. You should do this every time you install anything on the machine, no matter the source or developer to ensure that the device remains virus-free.

You need to eliminate One Click Speedup virus and employ reliable tools for the process

Unfortunately, One Click Speedup removal is not that easy as it may seem, especially when you try to get rid of the potentially unwanted application manually. This method is not advisable because you cannot find all the associated programs, files, and browser extensions. However, you need to delete all the related material to end the malicious processes.

We offer to go for the automatic One Click Speedup removal method and use anti-malware tools. A full system scan that such a program can perform on the PC indicates various issues with the computer and detects malware. Once the malicious program is detected, you can easily delete that from the system.

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.
