How can Super PC Cleaner violate your computer?

Super PC Cleaner virus is not a typical cyber infection and, technically, not even an actual virus. Its questionable functionalities, however, have lead the experts to deem this application a potentially unwanted program. The official website of this program tells a different story. It simply presents Super PC Cleaner as a handy and powerful security tool that can supposedly keep your Windows clutter-free and protected from malware. It is up to you to decide who’s judgment to trust, but we advise you to read this article first before you take the program creators’ or experts’ side. If, in the end, you decide to remove Super PC Cleaner, please make sure you use the proper tools to do it.

Questions about Super PC Cleaner

First of all, Super PC Cleaner’s veil of trustworthiness rips before the program even reaches the users’ computer. Though it has an official website, the program also spreads via other, often poor reputation software sharing sites [1]. Most importantly, Super PC Cleaner is not only promoted individually, but more often reaches computers in software packages with other popular programs [2]. Once it slithers into your system, it shows pop-ups and alerts saying that you need to test your computer’s safety immediately. It is also a questionable fact that the “scan” lasts only for about 10-15 seconds, and it is impossible to thoroughly investigate all computer system in such short period of time. Once the scan is done, the program states that your computer is heavily infected. It does not show any particular threats – it only displays an enormous number of problems on your computer. Such obscure scan results only raise more suspicions and allow us to speculate more freely whether the program is an actually useful security tool or simply an annoying nagware [3]. It is likely that the application only pretends to be an innovative cleaner, but the only goal it seeks is to force you to purchase the Super PC Cleaner license key for the full app version.

In this image, you can see Super PC Cleaner official website, which promotes Super PC Cleaner program. You should stay away from it.
 This deceptive program seeks to frighten you and to make you worry about PC problems that do not exist. It can also block legitimate websites and not allow you to download lawful and trustworthy anti-spyware [4]. The parasite does everything to make you think that buying the full version of it is the only way to save your computer. However, do NOT panic and do NOT believe what this program claims about your system – we are almost entirely sure that the “errors and threats” this fake scanner has found do not even exist on your computer. We recommend Super PC Cleaner removal using a well-known and legal anti-spyware programs, for example, Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego.

I did not install the program. How did it end up on my PC?

Super PC Cleaner is available on its official web page, but it is not the common way how users install this program. You should take note that some free programs on the Internet can include various attachments that you may not be notified about. It is so because the developers of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) tend to attach their products to appropriate programs and spread such software bundles on the web. The only way to prevent optional downloads and to find out if there are any attachments on your desired program is to investigate the installation process. Spare a few minutes and read the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy forms [5]. It is the only way to find out how the application actually works and with who does it collaborate. Then, select installation settings that are safe – no, we do not mean the “default” and “standard” ones. You should opt for “custom” or “advanced” mode to gain access to manage which software bundle files you wish to install and which ones you wish to dismiss. Then, simply remove the ticks from the boxes near agreements to install any suspicious apps like Super PC Cleaner and you can finish the installation process.

How to remove Super PC Cleaner and reclaim order on your computer?

Super PC Cleaner virus is not a particularly difficult to get rid of. The program is detected as malware by most security software and can be eliminated from the infected system automatically.

    Somehow this threat has invaded my system! It claims to be a security tool, but it is not! Do not buy the registration code, people, because I am sure that it will not function as a reliable anti-virus program. Fortunately, I have found this article and removed it without an effort. Thanks, 2-spyware. ;))
