PC Clean Maestro Cleaner – should you rely on this tool?

PC Clean Maestro virus is not an actual virus, but sometimes users who install it tend to call it like that. In reality, this PC optimizer by CompuClever company is advertised as an exceptional system tool that can “make your PC Clean and Safe!” However, computer security experts have doubtful thoughts about the reliability of this optimizer and sometimes even call it as a rogue program. This program arrives as a PCCUM.EXE file and sometimes does not appear in Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs list, so users often complain that they cannot remove PC Clean Maestro Optimizer although they want to. If you want to remove this program and you are not interested in its modus operandi, scroll down and follow PC Clean Maestro removal guidelines that we have prepared for you.

Questions about PC Clean Maestro virus

This system optimizer can be installed on your PC with or without your knowledge because it can be downloaded from the Internet or arrive in a software package along with other free programs. It seems that no matter if the computer is at risk or not, this optimizer starts displaying alerts and warnings urging the user to fix the computer immediately. It typically claims that various vulnerabilities have been found and needs to be cleaned immediately. Spyware researchers have a suspicion that this software might be using unfair tactics to convince people to buy the full version of it, and that it might even show false positives in system scan results. Therefore, we do not recommend you to trust this tool and better choose a more known PC optimizer such as Reimage to clean your PC. We recommend this tool not only because it can optimize your PC, but also because it can remove viruses and spyware from the system.

How did this optimizer sneak into your PC system without your knowledge?

This program is known to be using quite suspicious methods to enter users’ computers. If you suddenly started receiving PC Clean Maestro ads urging you to fix your PC although you did not download this tool, that probably confused you. Do not worry – it means that PC Clean Maestro hijack happened, which means that you have unknowingly installed it together with another program. It is known that this PC optimization tool can travel alongside programs like Air Installer. By saying “travel alongside” we mean that this tool can be offered to you during installation of another program. We always recommend users to check Advanced and Custom settings to see if any additional programs are added to the downloaded program. If so, they must be deselected. In most cases, such extra programs are nothing else but potentially unwanted programs that are hardly useful.
