Remove Pro PC Cleaner
What is Pro PC Cleaner
Pro PC Cleaner is a potentially unwanted program (PUP), advertised as a registry cleaner and system optimization tool. The program supposedly helps improve your computer’s performance by deleting unnecessary files. However, it doesn’t really do anything, and before users can fully use it, they are asked to purchase the full version. This is how PUPs of this kind earn money. They install without permission, convince users that something is wrong with their computers and then ask them to buy the full version. However, instead of purchasing them, you need to delete them.
It’s not a dangerous program in the sense that it will not harm your computer. It will merely show you annoying notifications about supposed issues on your computer until you buy the full program. We should mention, however, that if you were to purchase it, it could delete the wrong files and harm your computer this way.

How did the program install?

Should you uninstall Pro PC Cleaner?
Pro PC Cleaner is advertised as registry cleaner, which will clear your computer of junk and help it work better.
