Advance PC Protector

Advance PC Protector is one of those programs that are legitimate, but they might be distributed in a shady manner. In other words, it is perfectly fine to download this application on your own, but if you never wanted to have this program, and yet it is still there on your computer, it must have entered your system accidentally.

There is no need to keep an unwanted program even if it is not malicious. If you didn’t plan to have this application, you can remove Advance PC Protector manually, and then check whether there are more unwanted applications on-board.

We can get this program from the official website via advancepcprotecter.com. The application is promoted as a universal system optimization tool that can enhance your PC’s performance. According to the official website, “Advance PC Protector is an all-in-one PC optimization and PC protection utility. It provides you the most powerful junk cleaning and privacy protection and makes your computer run like brand new!” Such promises surely sound nice, but we have to remember that the program may land on a target system accidentally, too. So how does that happen? Why do users install unwanted software?

Aside from the official website, Advance PC Protector might be distributed via other channels, too. According to our researchers, it may come bundled with similar software. Therefore, whenever you download programs from file-sharing websites, you have to remain attentive. When you download software from official sources, it is very unlikely that you will install additional unwanted software. However, third-party file-sharing websites may not be that “clean.” In fact, it is very common for third-party installers to bundle several programs together. And when users skip the installation steps, they end up installing a number of unwanted applications. In other words, Advance PC Protector might be just one of the many unnecessary apps currently installed on your computer.

Can this program really improve your system’s performance? It is hard to tell. For one, Advance PC Protector can really locate problematic files that might be responsible for slowing down your computer. However, after a full system scan, this application indicates that your main problems are junk files and browsing cookies. The truth is that you can remove these files manually, and you can delete browsing cookies by deleting your browsing history. So while it could be convenient to have a third-party program take care of it for you, it is highly doubtful whether you really need it.

Please note that Advance PC Protector is not a freeware application. In other words, if you want to delete the junk files, you will have to purchase the full version of this program. The annual subscription for this program costs 39.99 USD. There are also other options: 49.99 USD for 18 months and 24.99 USD for half a year of subscription. Our research team suggests that the service offered by the full version of the program is not offered the money, and the program is terribly overpriced.

What’s more, we do not like how this program treats manual removal. Normally, when we uninstall programs via Control Panel, it should be the end of it. However, upon manual removal, Advance PC Protector leaves quite a few files and folders in your system, and you have to delete everything manually. This could be yet another reason why computer security experts say Advance PC Protector is a potentially unwanted program.

Luckily, if you do not want this system optimizer, you can remove it right now. As mentioned, deleting the application via Control Panel leaves quite a few leftovers. However, you will find the instructions on how to get rid of them right below this description.

On the other hand, if you do not want to deal with it on your own, you can acquire a powerful antispyware tool that will scan your system and remove all the potential threats automatically. Thus, if Advance PC Protector was just one of the many unwanted applications that entered your system unexpectedly, you can be sure that a security tool of your choice will terminate them all at once.

To avoid similar intruders in the future, be sure to stay away from unfamiliar websites. You should also download software only from official sources. Third-party sources are bound to distribute unnecessary apps, so you need to steer clear from them.
