Universal PC Mechanic

What is Universal PC Mechanic?

Universal PC Mechanic might look like a useful computer optimization tool, but our security researchers claim that this is a potentially unwanted program that should be removed from your computer. It does not mean that the program is a direct security threat. In fact, it is far from a malicious infection. However, it is very unlikely that the application will live up to its promises because such programs often enter computers with the intention to make easy money. They want to gather your payments, and they do not care about the features the program is supposed to have.testtesttest

Where does Universal PC Mechanic come from?

The thing with potentially unwanted applications is that they often have official distribution sources. The same applies to Universal PC Mechanic, too. This program has an official homepage, and we can easily access it via smartsystools.com. So when a program does not hide itself from you, it is hardly a malware infection. Malware infections use stealthy tactics to enter target computers, and this system optimization tool is hardly that sophisticated to try anything like it. Nevertheless, most of the users would say that they did not open the official homepage and that they did not download the program willingly.

And here computer security experts would chip in and say that yes, you did. Perhaps you were not aware of that, but Universal PC Mechanic cannot enter your system without your permission. If you did not notice how this system optimization tool entered your computer that is probably because you installed it together with some freeware application. Freeware downloads are commonly used to distribute potentially unwanted programs. This happens when one installer file bundles several applications together. Users often can choose to avoid installing additional apps and features, but if you go through the installation automatically, you might miss those steps. Hence, the likes of Universal PC Mechanic get installed on target systems.

As far as we know, there are several programs that are likely to have this potentially unwanted application in their setup. Be careful when you download Driver updater and McAfee Antivirus from third-party sources. Please take note that downloading programs from file-sharing websites can often lead to installing potential threats on your computer.

What does Universal PC Mechanic do?

According to the official website, this application has a lot of good features. The main website says that Universal PC Mechanic is “loved by millions,” and that this program is a “state of the art technology” that was “coded by industry experts with a combined industry experience of 32 years.” It also says that the program can “fix corrupt & invalid registry entries to improve performance & system response time.” It also comes with a Startup Manager that can “view and manage startup items to improve boot time & overall system performance.”

Despite these exaggerated claims, it seems that Universal PC Mechanic can barely do anything of the kind. During our research, we have found that this program runs a system scan that locates redundant registry entries that are often left when you remove unwanted programs. These registry entries do not pose great risks to your system’s security, but it does not mean that the program can help you remove those entries. In fact, Universal PC Mechanic says that it will only help you fix those “errors” if you pay for the full version of the application.

Do you really have to purchase the full version? Not really. We strongly believe that this program is more of an empty shell than an actual system optimization tool. It takes up space on your drive and obviously exposes you to misleading information. Therefore, you should make sure that you uninstall this program today.

How do I remove Universal PC Mechanic?

You can get rid of this application simply by removing it via Control Panel. In fact, rather than this system optimization tool, it is very likely that your main security concern is some other program that could have arrived along. Hence, you should scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner right now, to find all the potential threats. When the list of the unwanted programs is complete, remove them all at once. Finally, do not forget to protect your system from similar intruders in the future.
