Do not be fooled by clever marketing campaigns and embellished promises, PCclear is nothing more than a harmful rogue antispyware application designed with the sole purpose of defrauding a consumer out of his hard earned money, while leaving him with nothing more than an empty shell. PCclear is unable to deliver on any of its overstated promises, and cannot offer any benefit to an infected PC.
Distributed and spread with the help of illicit websites which makes use of drive-by downloads, the PCclear infection can also be caught through malicious Trojan and malware bundled downloads. PCclear follows the same path as most other rogue antispyware applications, and will try everything in its power to gain the trust of its victims. As a first line of attack, PCclear will inform the user that his PC is infected with various serious but ultimately fake infections. PCclear will then inform the user that the only way to get rid of these bogus infections will be to pay for a licensed version of PCclear.
Users are urged never to spend money on this rogue, and instead destroy PCclear before permanent and irreversible damage is done to their PCs. Symptoms of a PCclear infection have been reported as users being unable to connect to the Internet, and increased system instability and slowed performance.
In order to get rid of PCclear for good, users are urged to invest in a powerful security tool which will offer protection against future similar threats as well.
