SlimCleaner Plus – an optimization tool that might not be that useful as it seems

SlimCleaner Plus is a legitimate system optimization software designed to supposedly help regular computer users clean their systems. However, the developers of this program employ deceptive methods to trick gullible people and make sure that they continue paying for their not so efficient services. 

This is the reason why SlimCleaner Plus is classified as a potentially unwanted program[1]. Many people might confuse it with a virus. In reality, these system optimization tools are not malicious. However, they can significantly decrease your computer's performance regarding slowdowns, long software loading latency, etc.

At first, the users are either deceived to download SlimCleaner Plus with a regular program or tricked to get it due to the attractive, yet, distorted description on the official page — hxxps:// Shortly after the installation, people have a chance to try the free trial version.

Despite the fact that it looks fair, the contrivers of the potentially unwanted program programmed the software to deliver twisted system reports. In other terms, SlimCleaner Plus tricks people into believing that their computer is infected with an enormous amount of high-risk computer infections. Also, they have a free version called SlimCleaner. Yet, it's purpose is the same — swindle money from inexperienced computer users.

As a result of such deceptive reports, people are lured to purchase the full Slim Cleaner Plus version to fix the non-existent problems. Even though your computer might actually be infected with several other potentially unwanted programs like adware, we guarantee that the delivered scan results do not accurately represent the state of your system. 

Likewise, we suggest you get a more reliable and reputable antivirus application to protect your computer. In fact, you can use elimination instructions below to help you remove SlimCleaner Plus since its uninstallation process is reported to be more than complicated. 

Additionally, be prepared to receive numerous annoying notifications and ads if you continue to keep the so-called SlimCleaner Plus virus on your system. They will all be merely an attempt to lure you into purchasing the full version of the program and won't disappear until you do so.

Therefore, we do not recommend spending money on useless system optimization tools which employ more than unfair techniques to gain profits. After you complete SlimCleaner Plus removal, you can double-check your system with a professional security software like Reimage and check the real virus activity on your computer. We promise the results will be more than different. 

Unreliable system optimization tools might also secretly enter your system

Even though users can willingly install the useless software from the official website, the developers also employ several other tricky, yet legal ways to distribute their product. Typically, they bundle the potentially unwanted program with other free applications and offer them as one[2].

This way people are unable to detect the hidden additional software once they select Quick or Recommended settings. Likewise, the system optimization tool is installed on your computer without directly asking for permission. However, this can be avoided by selecting Custom/Advanced parameters and un-ticking all pre-selected boxes.

Additionally, users can be lured into downloading this less than reliable software via promoted ads. Usually, they pop-up during your browsing sessions on suspicious pages. We recommend you to stay away from those advertisements since they might not only install the PUP but also dangerous computer hazards.
