What is Tuneup Pro?
Tuneup Pro is a PC optimization tool that may cause various activities on your computer seeking to convince you into buying its license. As its developers claim, this program was designed for increasing system’s speed, improving computer’s stability, and keeping it error free. In fact, it is truly capable of removing some of people’s unnecessary files, but be sure that it won’t improve your system in any way. Even though it might be downloaded on its official site, in most of the cases it travels bundled with free programs and gets installed without users’ knowledge. Once installed, it loads its scanners and supposedly looks for the files, bad registry entries and errors. Later on, it will display you scan results that will include a long list of programs that have to be removed. While we can’t declare that these results are fake, you should be very careful what you see because they may be filled with legitimate programs that don’t affect PC’s speed. Therefore, NEVER trust and do NOT click ‘Fix now’ or ‘Remove’ and other buttons. If you click them, don’t get surprised after being redirected to a Tune up Pro purchase website and tricked into buying its licensed version. If you would do so, you could not only loose your money for a useless program. You may also reveal your personal information, such as credit card details, bank account, passwords, to a questionable company. Therefore, do not leave Tuneup Pro on your computer! If it has already sneaked inside it, take needed actions and remove it without hesitation.
How can Tuneup Pro hijack my computer?
As we have already mentioned, users who have been convinced that it is a handy tool are able to download it from its official site. Even though it happens quite often, there are lots of cases when this PC optimizer appeared on the system after downloading various freewares and sharewares. That’s because it has been integrated into various free programs, such as download managers or video streaming software. This way they are able to spread Tuneup Pro more widely and trick people into buying this dubious program. If you do not want to experience system’s slow downs and be disrupted by constant scans or pop-up ads, you should be more attentive during installation of free programs. Always select Advanced or Custom installation mode, read everything carefully and unmark propositions to install additional programs. If this rogue PC optimizer has already infiltrated your system behind your back, you may face difficulties in removing it as it protects itself from removal and you may not find its uninstaller. Besides, it is known that Tuneup Pro often installs Reimage Plus alongside, so you may need to remove both of them. We recommend using a reputable anti-spyware that will detect all potentially unwanted programs and will remove them automatically
