PCEasyNow may appear to be a beneficial tool that may clean and optimize your PC, but after researching and testing this software we must say that we some issues with it. In fact, we have categorized this application as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). This means that it may not present direct danger to you or to your system but it certainly shows questionable traits. This PUP was created by a Hong Kong-based company called Speedy HLDGS Limited. It is very similar to other PC optimizers like Master Pc Cleaner and Advanced-PCFixer. The free version of these applications is usually used as an aggressive marketing and promoting tool because the first scan results you may see could be filled with false errors just to make you believe that your computer has lots of problems. However, when you want to fix these, you are offered to buy the premium or full version of the software. This is the usual story behind these useless tools. But we have also found that this PUP may do other covert operations in the background. No wonder why we recommend that you remove PCEasyNow from your system as soon as possible.
The most likely way for you to install this PUP is via free software bundles. This would also mean that you may not even target this particular tool or you may not even realize that you are installing it in the first place. A bundle can pack several PUPs and malware infections alongside legitimate free software, which you may actually want to download originally. You can end up with such a bundle on your system when, for example, you want to use a suspicious file-sharing site to download free programs or cracked versions. But you can also drop one when you click on the wrong third-party content on other suspicious pages as well or if your PC is infected.
What a lot of inexperienced users may overlook is the fact that usually it is possible to deselect all the unwanted programs in a bundle if you are attentive enough while installing it. You need to read the license agreement and choose the custom installation option to be aware of the real content but sometimes even these steps will not fully reveal what you are dealing with. Some installers may, for example force you to agree to certain browser setting changes or the installation of another PUP, etc. We believe that it is important that you scan your PC with a trustworthy malware scanner right after you delete PCEasyNow.
We also need to mention that you can also download this useless software officially from its own website, pceasynow.com. This is a decent-looking website even if not really modern or up-to-date regarding design. You can download this PUP directly from this website if you do not have a security tool installed, which may block it right away.
As we have mentioned, this PC optimizer is not really different from all the others. It may show you partly made-up scan results just to make you believe that there are hundreds of issues on your computer, the majority of which may be simply unused or temporary files. You should know that removing these files and registry entries will not really make any visible changes with regard to the performance of your PC. The premium version is priced at $29.98, which we believe is a bit high for such a good-for-nothing, low-quality application. But it gets worse. Our tests also show that this PUP may start showing your third-party ads, which could be based on information gathered secretly by this tool. This means that soon after you install this PUP, you may find more and more ads while surfing the web that would seem relating to you and your preferences. We recommend that you remove PCEasyNow as soon as you can because this software is not really reliable and my put your system at risk.
The only good news we can mention about this PUP is that you can easily get rid of it by using its own uninstaller, which you can find in the installed programs list via Control Panel. If you have never uninstalled a program before, you can use our guide below as a reference. If you want to protect your computer from malicious attacks, it is also important that you update all your programs regularly. This can keep cyber crooks away since they usual can exploit outdated versions and use software bugs to drop infections or steal information from your computer. For the best possible protection of your PC, we suggest that you install a decent malware removal application like SpyHunter.
