Where does ShieldFix PC Cleaner come from?

But, since there are several applications out there with this name, it is easier to identify it by adding its developer’s name. This software is available for download from its official website at It is quite an informative and professional-looking website, to be fair. However, the problem is that this is not the only way this program is spread over the net. It is also distributed in free software packages together with malware infections. And that raises some concerns. If you install such a bundle and do not decline the additional unwanted or malicious programs, you will let a whole bunch of threats onto your computer. That is why we recommend running a system scan after removing ShieldFix PC Cleaner.

How does ShieldFix PC Cleaner work?

ShieldFix PC Cleaner is not a new invention, of course. It is very similar to PC Cleaner Pro and PC Optimizer, to name a few other applications from the same category. This potentially unwanted program is promoted as the “best one available on the software market today” on its website, which is a rather bold statement. You need to know that there are many reliable and cheaper products on the market that can fix your registry issues and clean your computer. Since ShieldFix PC Cleaner seems too pushy to make you register, it is possible that the scan results it displays may be a bit exaggerated. Although the scan may return with hundreds of issues, the software does not give you a detailed report regarding the actual problems, which other programs usually do. If you pay $24.50, you can fix the problems. All in all, we suggest that you remove ShieldFix PC Cleaner because it is just not as reliable as it wants to appear to be.
