What is RegGenie?
RegGenie is a malicious program, which is spread on the Internet as a registry cleaner and a PC optimization tool. However, we have serious doubts about that. If it tricks the user to install it or if it infiltrates computer behind his/hers knowledge, it may start displaying its questionable system scanners during each of victim’s search sessions. Even more, some of them have even said that this program detects the same Registry problems on all computers. After testing RegGenie on our computers, we discovered that this program detects unimportant registry errors that can hardly help people to make their machines run faster. Of course, after ‘scanning’ computer, this program reports about a long list of PC-related issues. No matter how trustworthy its ads look, beware that they are set only to push the user into purchasing the fake licensed version of this questionable program. Please, do NOT do that because this is straight way to identity theft and similar issues that can be initiated after revealing credit card information, full name and other sensitive data. According to our experts, this program can cause not only these scan reports and warning messages. In addition, it may start causing redirects on each of web browsers and may even slow computer’s work.
To sum up, you should avoid RegGenie virus, especially if it has appeared on your machine without downloading it. If it has started showing you misleading pop-up warnings that are reporting about tens of different issues, you should check your computer with alternative scanner and see what it finds. We can assure that you will be informed about Reggenie as a potentially unwanted program that can be eliminated with a help of such programs as Reimage.
How can RegGenie infiltrate my computer?
RegGenie is mostly spread on the Internet just like any other potentially unwanted program. If you want to avoid it, try to ignore these advertisements that offer checking computers for free. Typically, once you click on such alert, you can easily agree to download the trial version of RegGenie or similar application. As soon as it gets on its target PC system, it typically modifies the system and starts showing its ads. If you noticed RegGenie’s reports about hundreds of different registry errors, we recommend ignoring such alerts because they seek to create a need of its licensed version. You should also uninstall the trial version of this program.
