SpeedUpMyComputer is PUP that promises to improve your PC and work performance

SpeedUpMyComputer

SpeedUpMyComputer (can also be found as Speed Up My Computer) is a potentially unwanted program, which should be treated with carefulness. As its owner, the company SmartTweak Software, claims, this application was designed for seeking to help people to speed up their computers and eliminate junk files or other components that shouldn't be kept there.

Typically junk files, bad registry files, and similar things can easily cause the system’s slowdowns, so they should be removed from the system ASAP. However, we can't guarantee that this program will help you to improve the speed of your computer.

According to several security experts and our researchers, this program may easily indicate exaggerated problems and PC-related issues that are hardly related to PC's speed. Besides, you may also be informed about harmless files that should be kept on the system without any danger.

So, you should think before purchasing this program because that's how it promises to fix the system and improve the computer's speed.

We think that this optimizer is used just for trying to earn the money for its owners by offering to purchase its licensed version.

Besides, you should also pay attention to the discovery of our team. It seems that this program may also lead you to the infiltration of such ad-supported software as:

If you want to avoid these programs, you should be very careful when clicking on SpeedUpMyComputer ads or when installing this program on your computer. If you really think that you need an optimizer, you should try to choose more reputable optimization program. In order to remove this application, you should follow a guide below.

The ways for similar programs to access PC users

SpeedUpMyComputer is available at smarttweak(dot)us, cnet, and other download websites that offer downloading programs for free. If you still want to install it, you should be very careful with the installation setup. Typically, you should uncheck the checkmark, which agrees to download additional programs to your computer, such as Ask or Movies Toolbar.

In addition, make sure you uncheck check marks claiming that you want to change your start page and/or the default search engine because this may lead you to annoying redirects and pop-up ads. If you have already noticed that your browser redirects you to ask.com or shows you alerts from DeallBulldog, it might be caused by SpeedUpMyComputer.

Remove SpeedUpMyComputer if you think it is causing problems

We highly recommend running a full system scan with reliable anti-spyware and eliminating these suspicious programs from the system. Once again, while SpeedUpMyComputer is not a virus, but it may cause problems on your machine.

Protect your privacy – employ a VPN

There are several ways how to make your online time more private – you can access an incognito tab. However, there is no secret that even in this mode, you are tracked for advertising purposes. There is a way to add an extra layer of protection and create a completely anonymous web browsing practice with the help of Private Internet Access VPN. This software reroutes traffic through different servers, thus leaving your IP address and geolocation in disguise. Besides, it is based on a strict no-log policy, meaning that no data will be recorded, leaked, and available for both first and third parties. The combination of a secure web browser and Private Internet Access VPN will let you browse the Internet without a feeling of being spied or targeted by criminals. 

No backups? No problem. Use a data recovery tool

If you wonder how data loss can occur, you should not look any further for answers – human errors, malware attacks, hardware failures, power cuts, natural disasters, or even simple negligence. In some cases, lost files are extremely important, and many straight out panic when such an unfortunate course of events happen. Due to this, you should always ensure that you prepare proper data backups on a regular basis.

If you were caught by surprise and did not have any backups to restore your files from, not everything is lost. Data Recovery Pro is one of the leading file recovery solutions you can find on the market – it is likely to restore even lost emails or data located on an external device.

    This intsruction does not work. If you do as stated, what really occurs, after removal, “Fix My Registry” pops up on your desktop and is now in control panel. Remove that and then “Speed up my Computer” reappears in your control panel as a constant loop. Its a bloody scam and virus.
    Avoid it like the plague. Had to take out to get totally removed.
