Turbo Your PC review: useless app that cannot improve computer's performance

Image of Turbo Your Pc

Turbo Your Pc is presented as a PC optimization software that improves computer’s performance and protects from cyber threats. However, security experts warn that this system tool is shady and might cause unwanted activities. Thus, you should not install it.

However, the program might sneak into the system unnoticed as well. It might travel in software bundles as an optional component. Thus, incorrect installation of freeware[1] might lead you to the installation of Turbo Your PC virus.

As the official website of this program says, TurboYourPc can analyze your PC's memory in minutes and then clear all the junk from it with only one click. It also promises to increase available disk space, optimize its speed, help people to avoid annoying errors, lead them to hassle-free PC usage and finally prevents freezing, slow startups and blue screens of death.

The website looks really catchy, and it actually seems that this program belongs to a very professional team. However, after you download Turbo Your PC and test it for a while, it becomes clear that it is just another application which is created to display advertisements,[2] pop-up ad windows, banners that suggest people purchase its license.

According to Turbo Your Pc reviews, the program can also slow down your PC's speed itself as it tends to use a generous amount of system resources when it tries to load its scanners and ads. Moreover, if you click on these advertisements, you may end up on web pages that are selling its license, so we believe that you should avoid them.

Despite the fact that this application decreases people's browsing experience by interrupting them with its endless advertisements, Turbo Your Pc virus has another undesirable feature. Once installed, it may try to manipulate your personal information and may collect the one that is based on your activity on the web. Beware that it can get the access to your browsing history, your search queries, bookmarks, download history and so on.

Aggregated details might be shared with third-parties and used for displaying targeted ads. The problem with commercial content is that it might redirect to potentially dangerous websites where you can suffer from cyber criminals. If you care about your information security, you should remove Turbo Your Pc in no time.

If you have installed this tool manually, you can uninstall it as an ordinary program using Control Panel. However, if it got inside the device in a software bundle, you should opt for the automatic Turbo Your PC removal which requires scanning the system with reputable anti-malware,[3] such as ReimageIntego.

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
