PC Cleaner Pro 2012. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

What is PC Cleaner Pro 2012?

PC Cleaner Pro 2012 (you can also find it under the name of PC Cleaner Pro) is a legitimate PC optimization tool, which can help you to check your registry and know what errors and junk files are inside your PC system. However, for getting ability to eliminate these issues you will be asked to buy the full version of this program. Is it worth it? It depends on your point of view. We think that you should think twice before doing so because this program reports only about a small part of registries and files that are slowing your computer down. So, their removal can hardly improve the speed of your computer. In addition, there are hundreds of free tools that are capable of finding the same registries and files that should be eliminated. Besides, some users think that this program displays exaggerated reports about the state of the computer. So, you should note that some of the errors that will be discovered by PC Cleaner Pro can lead you to the removal of important files. If you wan to avoid this, you should think about other application, not this PC optimizer. If you have already downloaded it to your PC system or if it has infiltrated it without your removal, you should remove PC Cleaner Pro from the system ASAP.

How can PC Cleaner Pro appear on my computer?

We can’t call PC Cleaner 2012 virus; however, it may show up on your computer without your knowledge. That’s because it has been actively promoted using bundling. If you want to avoid unexpected components that can be hidden in such free programs as download managers, PDF creators, video streaming software and so on, you should start paying more attention to freeware’s installation process. Please, always select Custom or Advanced installation of the freeware and then make sure that you follow every installation step of it. Otherwise, you may need to start dealing with PC Cleaner Pro ads, scanners, alerts and other unwanted activities that are mostly dedicated for making the money. To sum up, we do not recommend using this application and you should choose a different PC optimization tool, if you need one. If you have already downloaded this program to the system, we recommend uninstalling it.

    Hope to read the morning headline…. jack-balls who are spreading this malware have had their heads smashed to a pulp with baseball bats. That crap smit-ware pc pro garbage is a persistent tough to get rid of cesspool of viruses.

  • Dennis Bowls

    I cant get rid of this thing, I have deleted everything and it still pops up, what a miserable time, it is like a cockroach really hard to get rid of,

  • Karen

    It seems I am not the only one, by far, to be concerned about PC Cleaner Pro and I am so thankful I didnt download it!! I was suspicious enough when the website quoted I had 3735 errors considering my computer was 1 hour old but even moreso when I saw there was no contact Email or phone number or ANYTHING on their website too. Glad I stayed away and thankful to see the confirmation on this page.

  • PC Cleaner Software

    Thank for this software.I used this software very beneficial for me in order to maintain my PC Speed up in performance and Remove unwanted Registry files .

  • Wilford Louvier

    This was the worst mistake ever installing PC Cleaner Pro, ESPECIALLY ONLINE VAULT. I hope I can eradicate these programs before they destroy all my files.

  • David, re pc cleaner

    Dont download it – dont install it – dont buy it, unless you want a load of trouble and expense. Once in, you will lhave one hell of a job to get ride of it. It hides bits and pieces of itself all over the place. I got rid of it in the end using Revo Uninstaler., one of the BEST unstallers going, and then I had a bit of a job. Hope this helps

      Too bad your software does not uninstall like any decent software! It keeps making my life miserable by popping up unexpectedly.

  • Steve Kramer

    I bought this P.O.S. software and also had a devil of a time removing it. After running MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Revo Uninstaller, and CCleaner in addition to Norton Power Eraser and basic anti-virus, I still had an artifact that kept coming up when I tried to uninstall certain software. Finally, I hit on an idea. I searched for files created on the date I downloaded this crap and found several suspect files in odd locations. The one I think was the biggest offender was Uninstall.exe with the PC Cleaners logo in C:Programs. I also found an odd file with the name Y;Y; in Documents & Settings, PC 1 in DataAll UsersApplications & Data; PC Cleaners, PC Pro, and phone in our familys Applications & Data file. I deleted them all (sent to the recycle bin), emptied it, then created a restore point. It seems to have FINALLY cured the problem. Fingers crossed.

    I purchased PC Cleaner Pro a few moments ago 10/3/12 and called 1-877-522-8825 as instructed. Although PC Cleaner Pro was downloaded to my machine a few days ago when I started the subscription process, a “technician” downloaded PC Cleaner AGAIN after I told him it was already installed. He then began to tell me that PC Cleaner Pro could not fix all of my registry problem and that I would have to pay him more money. I told him to cancel my purchase because PC Cleaner Pro claims to optimize my PC. NOT GOOD!!! My computer had better not be compromised!

  • Kiz

    I wouldnt recommend this software. My computer crashed about 2 weeks after installation. I was also experiencing more problems after I installed the program. Everything would lock up and freeze a lot. When I called the support line they determined that I also needed to spend more and let their certified technicians could remotely fix my computer issues for $250.00!!!!!!!!!!! I said no thank you. I took my computer to a repair shop and they told me it was a partial hard drive failure. They were able to recover most of my folders and data but I lost all of my programs. I had them install a new hard drive. When I called PC Cleaner Pro to let them know I wanted my money back I got a lot of run around. They said I couldnt get my money back because I purchased it 1 month and 9 days ago. Huh?????????? I told I had been without a computer for 2-1/2 weeks getting it repaired. Their website said 100% satisfaction guaranteed and I was not 100% satisfied. I was not going to re-install it on my brand new hard drive and have that crash too. I had to call them 3 times before they would give me the website to request my money back. I am still waiting for a response. Very frustrating.

  • Eliud

    This software is total bull!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11 Do not buy!! I purchased yesterday, and two hours after I installed my computer crashed!! WTF!!!!! all my stuff has been erased and I lost a lot of things I had not backed up!

    Its hard to comment Intelegently on cleaner pro parasites with my limited computer skills thats why I turned to the experts after months of cussing at my computer with no results. So when they offered a free scan and found over 2000 errors and guarenteed a fix I had to try it. Regestration and payment took about 5min. then I spent 2 hours scanning fixing rescanning and fixing with no improvement in fact the errors were more frequent.
    So again I turmed to the experts and called their support team, another hour with them and it was determend that the $40.00 cleaner wouldnt fix my problem, I needed the $225.00 fix. I thanked them very much for all their usefull information but declined their offer. They agreed to refund my $39.95 and quickly transfered me to the refund registry page. Apparently the refund procedure takes much longer than the payment did they transfered funds out of my chk acc in 5min Im still waiting for it to be put back. I should add PCcleaner Pro calls the $39.95 a one time annual fee but when the asked if I wanted their automatic subscription renewal it was refered to as byannual, who knows.
