What is Advance System Care?
Advance System Care is yet another questionable application that claims to “clean, optimize, and speed up your PC”; however our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com has found that the free version of this software simply tries to push you quite aggressively to buy the full version. We have labeled this application as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) because it may not be as useful and effective as it promotes itself. In fact, this PUP is very similar to other PC optimizers, including Super System Optimizer, SystemKeeperPro, and System Care. The truth is that you cannot really trust the system scans this PUP may display since it is possible that most of it is just made up to convince you about buying the full product to be able to fix some alleged system errors. Since this questionable application may enter you system in a bundled version and may bring other, more serious threats on board, we suggest that you remove Advance System Care as well as all related potentially risky programs.
Where does Advance System Care come from?
Our malware specialists have found that this PUP mostly spreads in Japan and the United Kingdom right now, which, of course, can change anytime. We have also discovered that there is actually a legitimate program called "Advanced System Care" by "IOBIT" so it is quite possible that the authors of this PUP want to attract users by using an almost identical name. You can find the official website of this questionable application at advancepctools.info. In all fairness, this is a professional-looking website and you could not really know that you are dealing with a potentially unreliable application. When you click on the Download button, you get redirected to cdn.pccleaner.biz/asc/b4/securerc/ascsite.exe to drop the installer. However, if your system is protected, your updated security tool may detect this executable file as a potential threat and flag it right away. Well, this is definitely not a good sign and may make you want to delete Advance System Care without a second thought. But we have more on this PUP.
It is also possible that you download it in a free software bundle while targeting a totally different program whose installer package contains this PUP. Unfortunately, this bundle may easily contain malware infections as well, such as browser hijackers, Trojans, adware programs, and more. It should be clear that this could mean multiple system security threats to you. In such a situation, this PUP would be the least of your worries, as a matter of fact. You can download a malicious bundle when you try to download free software or an update from suspicious file-sharing websites or when you click on unreliable third-party advertising on questionable webpages. This is why we always emphasize the importance of downloading from official sources only. We recommend that you delete Advance System Care and then, use a reliable online malware scanner, if you do not have one installed, and scan your computer for other potential threats.
How does Advance System Care work?
Once you install this PUP, it makes sure that it starts automatically with Windows. This means that every time you restart your computer or switch it on, this application will be running in the background. This may become rather annoying because it starts sending you system notifications to your screen that urge you to fix the supposed issues found by this PUP. Obviously, this is all about pushing you to buy the full version of this software, which is 23.95 EUR by the way. The free version can do nothing really apart from seemingly scanning your system and displaying probably false results. Some of these PC optimizers go as far as claiming thousands of system issues to be fixed. However, when you click to fix, you are prompted to buy the full version.
This PUP may also slow down your PC because of its scanning and other background operations. Our tests show that this software may not be good for you at all because it may simply delete your temporary files and unused registry entries, which will not have too much effect on your system and your PC performance. But because of all the above mentioned issues we believe that you should remove Advance System Care and look for a proper program that can really boost your system or protect it from similar and more dangerous threats as well.
How can I delete Advance System Care?

Practically, you can eliminate this PUP within one single minute and you do not even need to be an expert user. Please follow our guide below if you want to do this manually. But as we have said, it is possible that this software is practically the least problematic and harmful on your system right now. In order to detect and erase any other potential threat sources, we suggest that you use an authentic malware removal application, such as SpyHunter. You should also remember that just because your PC is protected by security software, you need to keep all your programs and drivers updated if you want best results.
