SpeedUp PC 2018 is a fake system optimizer which works on swindling the money from unaware PC users

SpeedUpPC 2018 fake tool

SpeedUp PC 2018 is presented as a legitimate system optimization utility tool which can detect and eliminate potential threats and boost the computer speed. However, this questionable app is known to invent non-existing issues to make users buy licensed version of the program. Furthermore, because the program enters users machines with bundling, it is considered to be a potentially unwanted application.[1]

Name SpeedUp PC 2018
Type Potentially unwanted program; fake system optimizer
Distribution Bundling; the official website
Main dangers Reports fake errors; seeks to convince users to buy its official version which is fake
Removal Automatic, manual

SpeedUpPC 2018 was developed by globalsystools.com which is responsible for countless similar apps creation, such as Smart PC Mechanic, Universal PC Mechanic, and many others. All these programs are created to make users believe that their PCs are in critical health and need tweaking by the program. Although computers might become slow overtime, it does not mean that the “problems” found by these questionable applications are real.

As soon as SpeedUp PC 2018 infiltrates victims’ machines, it performs a series of scans. Not surprisingly, multiple “problems” are detected straight away. Typically, these issues are connected to outdated registry entries[2] which do not influence PC performance whatsoever. Therefore, there is no need fixing anything this fake tool finds. If you have it installed, remove SpeedUp PC 2018 as soon as you notice its scans running without authorization.

In case some users agree to fix these non-existent issues, they are prompted to by a full licensed version of the application. If they accept, they will be asked to pay up via their credit card. Unfortunately, by doing this, victims not only lose money on useless software but also disclose their bank and other personal details.

As stated in SpeedUpPC privacy policy, the personal information is handled by third-party retailers:

If you purchase one of our products, the payment will be handled by a 3rd party payment gateway. <…>
The payment gateways will collect information about you, such as your name, address, phone number, email and credit card details. 

Thus, please consider if you want to share your sensitive data with unknown sources. It might end up in the hands of cybercriminals and used for illicit purposes, such as identity theft or stolen money from bank account.

Research shows that SpeedUpPC 2018 might actually cause some serious issues by cleaning registry entries which should be retained. Additionally, many AV engines detect it as a PUP.

As you can see, using this computer optimization tool is not a good idea. If you want to remove a virus or other PUP, you might as well use legitimate software, like ReimageIntego, which can detect all real threats your computer might encounter. Additionally, this software will assist you with SpeedUpPC 2018 removal.

Optimization tools are distributed using bundling technique

Even if you try downloading and installing the fake optimization tool on the official website, certain browsers like Chrome will block the download, marking it as unsafe. Various similar tools are not useful and might merely want your money. Thus, developers of such apps typically employ software bundling to install an unwanted program on victims' machines forcefully. Once successful, the app might convince users that the full license is required and extort money out of them.

To avoid that, we highly advise you never to pick Recommended/Default settings while installing free software. This mode is designed to hide additional components and skip steps, which allows creators' inserting unwanted applications.

Therefore, always opt for Advanced/Custom installation mode. Once prompted, remove all the tick marks by optimization tools, toolbars, search engines, free games, browser extensions and other useless software.

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address.

If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for the server or network manager that needs to monitor connections and activities. VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world.

 

Recover files after data-affecting malware attacks

While much of the data can be accidentally deleted due to various reasons, malware is one of the main culprits that can cause loss of pictures, documents, videos, and other important files. More serious malware infections lead to significant data loss when your documents, system files, and images get encrypted. In particular, ransomware is is a type of malware that focuses on such functions, so your files become useless without an ability to access them.

Even though there is little to no possibility to recover after file-locking threats, some applications have features for data recovery in the system. In some cases, Data Recovery Pro can also help to recover at least some portion of your data after data-locking virus infection or general cyber infection.
