Lishbos Registry Scanner

Lishbos Registry Scanner

According to the official information prepared by Lishbos Technologies Pvt. Ltd., Lishbos Registry Scanner is a reliable application that can remove registry errors to fix slow computer’s performance. It is suggested that this suspicious program can repair registry damage and enhance overall performance. Unfortunately, some users are tricked into believing that that is true, when, in reality, it is just a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that serves no one else but its creator. If you install it onto your Windows operating system, it immediately introduces you to fake scanner results to make you think that there are hundreds or even thousands of critical errors. The scanner results are meant to push you into clicking the “Fix All” button, which, of course, leads to a purchase page. Even though the suspicious registry scanner is retailed at 7 USD (a permanent discount from 25 USD), you should not waste one cent on it. If you already have, we suggest looking into the possibility of getting your money back; however, it is unlikely that you will get anywhere with that. In any case, deleting Lishbos Registry Scanner is crucial, and this report shows how to do that. Read more »

Who would not like to have an application like Registry Scanner claims to be, i.e., one that can allegedly boost your PC performance, improve its effectiveness and strength simply by cleaning up invalid registry entries and Internet junk? The truth is that most of these registry cleaner and supposed PC optimizer applications end up in the potentially unwanted program (PUP) category once they are thoroughly tested. This software had the same fate. Although we cannot say that this PUP is dangerous in any way or that it poses a direct threat to you or to your computer, our malware specialists have found that it is not at all reliable when it comes to displaying registry scan results and pushing you to buy the full version. We believe that this software is unreliable and totally useless for you as no registry cleaners have been proved to actually improve performance, not to mention that it seems that Microsoft does not approve of such tools either. All in all, we suggest that you remove Registry Scanner from your system because it usually does not end well if even one single unwanted program enjoys your hospitality for too long. Read more »
