Speedy SystemCare – a Windows cleaning utility that drops fake virus announcements
Speedy SystemCare is categorized as a system cleaning tool that places bogus scan results for increasing its purchases' scale. The potentially unwanted program might provide you with a big variety of system scanning/cleaning/fixing features that in reality appear to be fake. Speedy SystemCare virus has been found suspicious by 38 AV engines and has gained a questionable look from Windows users. The program runs the spscsetup.exe process and automatically imitates a system checkup after which a list of non-existing threats and errors is provided to encourage users to purchase the license key for the advanced version's activation that is “required” according to the developers.

Speedy SystemCare is a bogus product that travels mostly in software bundles found on unsecured networks such as CNET or Softonic but can also be purchased from its original developer. However, there is no need of spending money for the license key as the software only provides hundreds of fake virus alerts like this one:

We recommend not to click on the “Start Repair” button as you might even be redirected to a potentially suspicious website. However, the developers will most likely try to encourage you to purchase the licensed version of Speedy SystemCare for some type of monthly/yearly price. Do not do that as there are many more reliable programs on the Internet to buy.
Speedy SystemCare - a potentially unwanted program that provides fake system scan results
Speedy SystemCare most likely gathers various outdated registry keys, unknown files and presents them as potential threats. However, this utility does not show the real security level on your machine. If you want to perform a reliable system checkup and be sure that there are no similar existing threats, try another tool such as Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego or something similar.
Once you have been convinced about your computer's system or that no viruses/errors similar to the ones provided by tool exist, you can continue with the Speedy SystemCare removal process. You can rely on both the automatical or manual elimination and both of them are explained in detail at the end of this article.
Another reason to remove Speedy SystemCare is that this bogus tool only takes space on your computer and might intrude your computing work with questionable pop-ups about “new security problems found”. However, this utility is not the only one of its kind, there is other very similar software with the same functioning as this one:
Speedy SystemCare is definitely not the equipment you should trust your Windows machine security too. All developers of rogue security software look at their own needs first and the user is just a tool to satisfy those needs. Be aware of fake tools as they also might come bundled with other PUPs, for example, adware or browser hijackers.

Know about rogue software distribution and prevention
IT specialists from Virusai.lt urge all users to carefully choose their antivirus software. This is the main reason why you should be able to sort out bogus products from trustworthy ones. If you ever end up with a system cleaning utility unknowingly, be sure that the program is a false one as no reliable software places itself on a computer without the user's consent even though they can be downloaded from their direct sources.
Continuously, some developers use third-party downloading sources such as CNET.com or Softonic where the fake tool is inserted in some type of software package. “Software bundling” is also a very popular way to receive unwanted products on your computer system. You increase the chance of getting suspicious software on the machine if you have opted for the Quick/Recommended configuration rather than the Custom/Advanced settings.
Furthermore, you can accidentally end up with rogue software if you find its promotion through third-party advertisements or hyperlinks that once clicked automatically launch the installation process of the potentially unwanted program. Better not visit any unsafe sources and all and install AdBlock or Adblock Plus on your web browser for ad prevention. Last but not least, make sure that you have a reliable AV product running that will prevent suspicious products from entering your machine.
