Magic PC Cleaner

Magic PC Cleaner claims to be “the most advanced PC cleaner” as its name may also suggest, but we must tell you that we think otherwise. As a matter of fact, after testing and researching this software we have concluded that this is just another PC optimizer that is indeed a potentially unwanted program, or PUP. This program wants to look more than it really is. The free version is practically good for nothing and we would definitely not buy the full version just have some useless files removed. It is quite likely that this PUP simply shows you false scan results to try to push you to purchase the paid version. If you want to protect your computer, we believe that you should remove Magic PC Cleaner even if this may not be the most dangerous threat you can encounter.

There is a slight chance that you have found the promotional webpage at softfix.com or you accidentally landed there and downloaded the installer but we doubt that a lot of users would do so. Obviously, this official page claims all the best things about this useless PUP like it is really the best and most useful tool you can have. However, if you really want to use this software, you need to buy it for $29.95, which somehow becomes $26.63 once you are on the purchase page. Still, we believe that this is a high price for such a low-quality and unreliable program. But this may not be enough for you to delete Magic PC Cleaner so let us go on with the list.

The real issue with its distribution is that you can also find this PUP spreading in “mysterious” ways or, in other words, by clicking on questionable third-party ads. Therefore, there is a chance that you do not even know about or remember installing it. Although, it is also possible that you are shown a pop-up ad while browsing the web that claims that your system is in danger or under attack by malware and you need urgent help so click OK to download a powerful cleaner such as this one. Of course, if you are an inexperienced user, you might fall for such a trick and click. We cannot claim that installing this program is the worst that can happen to you since this PUP does not really put your system at risk in any way; it tries to sell itself by pushing you a bit that is all really. Still, we think that you should remove Magic PC Cleaner because it can enter your system in questionable ways.

Even worse, when you click on third-party ads and you drop this PUP bundled with malware infections, which is also a possibility. Clicking on third-party content is always risky since you can never be sure that your system is clean of adware programs or other malware threats, which could hijack normal and legitimate advertisements. Well, unless you regularly run a malware scan on your system. But you may also end up on shady websites where you could be exposed to unsafe third-party ads, fake buttons, and fake notifications that can all drop such a PUP in a bundled version. All in all, we recommend that you scan your system right after you delete Magic PC Cleaner because chances are there could be more threats on your PC.

This PC optimizer seems to work exactly like its predecessors, including Advance System Care and Super System Optimizer, although it may even lack some functionality when compared to its peers. When you scan your system with this software, it may come back with thousands of alleged system errors that need fixing ASAP. Of course, when you click on the Clean button, you are redirected to a purchase page where you can buy the full version of this PUP. We are not convinced that this program shows you legitimate results; it is more likely that some of it is fictional or made-up to make you want to buy this product. This is the usual tactic these optimizers tend to apply. However, as we have found, this PUP does not do too much really. It may clean your temp browser caches and temporary files from your system and that is mostly what it does. You will actually feel no change in the performance of your PC because these are practically things you can do yourself if you want. But even if you do not delete these files, you can use your PC without any issues. We suggest that you remove Magic PC Cleaner because the magic does not happen and you would just waste your money buying such a useless program. Instead, you may want to consider investing in a professional anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter that can protect your PC automatically from all kinds of malicious attacks and PUPs like this.

If you have made up your mind, you can use our guide below this article to eliminate this PUP. Although, it is not at all difficult to do so, please follow these steps carefully because they involve editing the Windows Registry database. If you should make any mistakes there, it might have irrevocable consequences to your system. If you want to safeguard your computer better, we advise you to regularly update all your software and drivers. Also, try to stay away from suspicious websites and clicking on questionable third-party ads.
