Advance System Care
We want to inform you about a new application called Advance System Care. This application falls into the category of potentially unwanted programs due to the fact that it is not malicious but also still unreliable and utterly useless. From the very outset, we recommend that you remove it from your PC because it will not do anything you expect it to do. In short, it is a scam program that masquerades a legitimate program by the same name. Its goal is to extract money from you because it will neither optimize your PC nor protect it from cyber threats.
Advance System Care is like any other potentially unwanted program that masquerades as a PC optimization or cleaning tool. It is very similar to how System Healer, SystemBoosterPro, and SystemKeeperPro works in that it performs a scan of the computer and then does not do anything until you purchase the full version which is 29.95 Euros which is an approximate 32 US dollars. Even after you buy it there is no guarantee that it will do anything useful. We think that it might go so far as to delete temporary files and empty registry keys which are trivial as they do not contribute to slowing down your PC. In short, this application will probably not do your PC any good, but its developers will happily take your money. Advance System Care will launch on system startup and nag you with its annoying notification to purchase the full version in order to remove the perceived system threats.
As mentioned, Advance System Care masquerades as an entirely different application. We have found that its name is similar to Advanced System Care by IObit. We suspect that the name choice was not accidental and the developers of Advance System Care chose this name to purposefully confuse users and trick them into installing this worthless application. Now that you know more about how this application functions, let us take a look at how it is distributed around the web.
Knowing how an undesirable program is distributed is key to avoid getting it, especially if the publishers use rather deceptive methods to get it onto the computers of unsuspecting users. We have found that Advance System Care is featured on a website at Advancepctools.info. This site is its main distribution website that claims that this program is the best thing that can keep your computer running smoothly. This website features a standalone installer, so there is no deception involved. However, we have received information that this program can be bundled with third-party software installers. These installers might hide this undesirable application and install it automatically, provided that you do not deselect it from the advanced installation menu.
We suggest that you delete this program from your PC, but we want to warn you that, while uninstalling, it might install another program called Ad-Aware or WebCompanion. Both of these programs are set to replace your browser’s search engine to Yahoo.com. Furthermore, you cannot deselect this action, so you will have to replace the search engine as soon as you uninstalled this application.
We hope you found this article useful and you can now see Advance System Care for what it is — an undesirable program whose only objective is to convince you that you have to buy the full version in order to clean up your PC of any junk and potential security threats. Given that this application is next to useless, we suggest that you remove it. Please use the guide provided below on how to uninstall this application.
