PC Junk Optimiser
PC Junk Optimiser promises to tweak your operating system to boost PC speed and enhance the overall performance. It promises to do that by removing junk files, tracking cookies, and browsing history. As soon as you discover that this is what this program promises, you must understand that it is not reliable. Any user – regardless of the experience level – can eliminate junk files, cookies, and browsing history, and any program offering nothing but these services is likely to have hidden agenda. Programs that offer useless services or that hide malicious activities behind useless services are usually classified as PUPs (potentially unwanted programs). Zeast PC Tuneup and One10 PC Cleaner are classified as PUPs as well, and we found that they were created by the same people who created the program we are discussing in this report. If you continue reading, you will learn how to remove PC Junk Optimiser, and gain insight on potentially unwanted programs.
The suspicious PC Junk Optimiser – also known as PC_Junk_Optimiser – supposedly provides two different services. The first service is meant to guarantee the removal of junk files, and the so-called Browser Optimiser promises to eliminate browsing history and cookies “for an optimum browsing speed.” According to our researchers, the PUP is completely useless, and it is unlikely that it will erase any unnecessary components or speed up your operating system. Instead, it will display fictitious error messages forcing you to think that your operating system is infected with viruses and malware. It was found that getting rid of these fake warnings is extremely difficult. Even if you uninstall the suspicious PUP from your operating system, the messages are likely to persist. Although at first these fake warnings might seem scary, sooner or later, you should realize that they are completely fictitious. Needless to say, you should not pay attention to the information presented via these warnings. Here is an example.
The main objective behind these fake alerts is to trick you into thinking that you are in trouble and that you need to contact technical support. Every fake warning is likely to be followed by a list of intimidating outcomes, as well as recommendations. If we look at the outcomes, you might be warned that your system will crash or that you will suffer permanent data loss if you do not handle the supposedly detected viruses and infections right away. When it comes to recommendations, you might be pushed to employ antivirus software to have all threats eliminated. The recommendation is very good; however, it is partially misleading, considering that the malware detected by PC Junk Optimiser is fictional. In reality, the main goal for these intimidating warnings is to convince you to call a provided helpline number. It appears that the number associated with this PUP – 889978786786786 – is completely fictitious. It is possible that an error has occurred or that this version of the infection is being tested, and it will be updated in the future. In either case, you should never contact funny helpline numbers without cross-checking them first because you might reveal yourself to virtual schemers.
As you now know, you cannot just uninstall PC Junk Optimiser. In order to eliminate this potentially unwanted program successfully, you need to delete multiple files and registry keys, which is exactly what the guide below shows. If you follow this guide, the PUP will be erased along with all of its fake notifications, alerts, and recommendations. Have you already been scammed via this PUP? Whether you have disclosed your virtual identity, installed suspicious software, or made transactions, you need to take appropriate action. If you have been scammed, and you do not know what to do next, you can leave a comment below, and we will try to help you as best as we can. Another thing you need to consider is the activity of third-party malware. Even if you successfully delete PC Junk Optimiser, you will not be safe until you eliminate all threats and protect your operating system. Due to this, you need to consider installing reliable anti-malware software.
