Super PC Cleanup

Super PC Cleanup is another potentially unwanted program that poses as a legitimate system optimizer just to trick gullible Windows users into paying for its services. Although anyone can download the PUP’s scanner for free, no “issues” are resolved unless you pay for the registered version of the tool. Should you pay for it? You can if you want to waste your money. Our research team, of course, does not recommend this. Instead of investing in worthless software, you should invest in the kind that would protect you and help you with Windows protection against PUPs and serious malware. In this report, we discuss how this suspicious application is distributed, how it works once executed, and, of course, how to delete it. If you are not interested in learning anything, you can scroll down to find a full Super PC Cleanup removal guide; otherwise, you should continue reading. Note that a comments section is available at the bottom, and if you have any questions that are currently tormenting you, you can share them with us.

Jawego Partners LLC is the developer of Super PC Cleanup, as well as Super Cleanup and, probably, several other similar programs. There is no real difference between these applications, expect for their names, which are almost identical too. Needless to say, this is a red flag because legitimate and reliable system optimizers and anti-malware tools do not have numerous copies. This indicates that the creator is using all of these programs to make more money. This is not that surprising, considering that Super PC Cleanup does not offer reliable or useful services, which means that it cannot become popular and bring its developers substantial profit. That being said, the program is represented at superpccleanup.com, and it can look professional to less experienced users. Users are made believe that the program can remove “registry errors” to ensure “best performance,” and that might be a selling point to some. The same misleading information can be presented via a bundle installer that could introduce the PUP along with other questionable programs. If you have installed such programs, check if you need to delete any of them.

When Super PC Cleanup is done scanning the computer, it lists a bunch of alleged registry errors along with their “damage level.” At the bottom of the scanner, you are shown the “Fix Issues” button, and if you click it, the issues will not be fixed immediately. First, you will be asked to purchase the registered version of the PUP for $39.95. Is Super PC Cleanup completely useless? We cannot say that because it can find certain registry issues; however, they are not critical issues, and your system will not start running better if they are removed/resolved. Basically, you would be wasting your money if you paid for this kind of a service. Unfortunately, the interface of the PUP can make it appear quite believable. For example, there is a logo of Microsoft, and you have different tools and features, which makes the program appear legitimate. Also, you are offered 24/7 support at (855) 761-8856, which adds up to make the PUP appear trustworthy. Of course, this is all just an illusion to make you pay money for services that are not worth it.

If you uninstall Super PC Cleanup, traces of it will be left behind, which is another reason why it cannot be trusted. Any program that evades complete removal needs to be investigated carefully. If you are set on removing this PUP manually, you can follow the instructions below. As you can see, quite a few steps need to be completed for the unwanted program to be eliminated, but if you move carefully, you should be successful. Another option you have is to install an anti-malware program to delete Super PC Cleanup from the system automatically. This option is truly beneficial for you because if other threats exist, they would be eliminated as well. Also, your system’s protection would be reinforced, and other PUPs or malicious programs would not be able to invade again. Hopefully, the path is clear, and you know what to do to ensure that your system is clean and safe to use. In the future, make sure you research the software you want to install before the installation to avoid unwanted, misleading, and worthless programs.
