What is Advanced PC Tuneup?
Advanced PC Tuneup is a system optimization tool that can be considered a potential unwanted program (PUP). It means that this program is not a direct computer security threat, but it might enter your system when you expect it the least. When a program gets into your system without your permission it is obvious that the program should not be tolerated, no matter how good it might seem to be. Therefore, if you happen to have this program on-board, you should remove Advanced PC Tuneup because there is a very good chance that the application could eventually expose you to undesirable content.
Where does Advanced PC Tuneup come from?
The origins of the program are one of the few reasons we cannot label this application as a dangerous infection. For starters, the application has an official website that you can access via advancedpctuneup.com. It is natural that the direct download is available, but there are more ways for this program to enter your system, especially if you consider the fact that most of the users who complain about this application do not remember installing it.
Thus, we can assume that the most often Advanced PC Tuneup arrives bundled with other freeware applications that can be downloaded from file-sharing websites. If you want to avoid potential threats, you should refrain from downloading apps from third-party sites. Downloading programs from official vendor’s pages is the best way to avoid getting unfamiliar software on your computer. Especially, you should be wary of a number of file-sharing sites, such as filewin.com, malavida.es, descargar.es, and others that are known to be part of the potentially unwanted program distribution circle.
Also, you should read the installation wizard carefully because you could see messages or notes that offer to install additional features or programs. If you breeze through the installation, you will obviously miss your chances to avoid installing Advanced PC Tuneup, and then the program will pop up on your screen seemingly out of nowhere. But here we would like to point out that this PUP does not enter your system surreptitiously. You installed it yourself, even if you were not aware of that.
What does Advanced PC Tuneup do?
This application is practically identical to many other programs of similar profile. Researchers at anti-spyware-101.com say that the program is yet another clone of ProCClean, Optimizer Pro, and so on. Therefore, it exhibits similar behavioral patterns, and you can expect the same glitches from this program as from its predecessors.
We believe that this program employs aggressive marketing tactics to enter target computers, so it is often bundled with unreliable software installers. What’s more, with Advanced PC Tuneup, you may also get Internet Quick Access, and search.realcoolmovie.com installed on your PC, too. Hence, if you have this PUP on your PC, the chances are you have many other undesirable apps as well.
As far as the program’s functions are concerned, Advanced PC Tuneup runs a full system scan and detects various registry errors. However, our researchers point out that the tool cannot detect any serious error that would require fixing. What’s more, the application says that it will “fix” the errors it detects if you purchase the full version of this application. Needless to say, there is no need to buy the full version of the program because first, you do not need it, and second, there is a very good chance that the application would not live up to its promises.
So what do we do with program we do not need? We REMOVE it.
How do I remove Advanced PC Tuneup?
Since this program is very far from a serious security infection, it can also be uninstalled via Control Panel. Of course, you should not forget other programs that might be slowing down your system. To get a full list of all the unwanted applications, you can scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner. A reliable security application would also protect your system from other dangerous infections.
Of course, a computer security tool may not be enough to protect your system from all the potential threats because your web browsing habits are just as important in securing your PC from third-party exploitations. Thus, be responsible and do not hesitate to contact us if you have more questions about this.
