Power System Care
We have another useless system optimizer on our hands, and it is called “Power System Care.” It is identical to many other recently reported system optimizers that scan Windows systems and list “items” that, allegedly, are slowing down those systems. The goal is to convince users to pay for the licensed version of the tool. There are quite a few clones of the suspicious program, and a few of them include Power Speedup 2018, Power Cleaner 2018, and Win Speedup 2018. Since the year is almost at the end now, it is likely that we will start seeing new optimizers with “2019” in their names pretty soon. It is also possible that the developer will drop the year altogether to ensure that they appear to be relevant despite the year. Our research team does not classify these questionable optimizers as serious threats but as potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) because they coerce users into paying money for services that are basically useless. If you are curious to learn more, or you already want to remove Power System Care, this is the article you should continue reading.
The official download page of Power System Care is powersyscare.com. It is identical to the pages set up to promote all other PUPs we have already mentioned. Although the digital signatures are unique in all cases, it is very likely that the same creator can be linked to all of them. Although PUPs are introduced to users via official websites, how they discover these sites is unknown. Most likely, ads and pop-ups are used for the promotion of Power System Care and its clones. In a different scenario, third-party installers are used for the distribution of the PUP, and they could package it along with malware. Even if you are cautious, schemers could outsmart you. So, if you are still thinking about installing the program, we suggest looking for something more beneficial and reliable. And if you have downloaded it already, the first thing you should do is install a trusted malware scanner because you want to know if there are other programs that require removal. Without a doubt, the most malicious and unreliable programs should be the first ones to be deleted.
After installation – and Power System Care installs itself to a unique folder in %PROGRAMFILES(x86)% or %PROGRAMFILES% directory – a system scan is initiated right away. Once it is done, you are asked to direct your attention to alleged security threats (“Malware/PUP Threats”) and registry items that require a repair. The purpose of the scanner is to make you click the “Start Repair” button at the bottom, and if you do that, you are then asked to pay 23.95 Euro, which is a standard price for all the PUPs from the same family. If you pay for the license, you will have temporary files, registry items, and some, most likely, insignificant programs deleted. Is the service worth the money? No, and there are several reasons why. First of all, the items “repaired” by the PUP are not significant enough to clear up space and speed up the computer. Second, Power System Care does not offer well-rounded anti-malware services, and if you rely on it to keep your system protected against malicious threats, you could soon find yourself battling some real issues. Due to this, we suggest immediate removal.
You can delete Power System Care manually or using an anti-malware program. If you choose the first option, your goal is to uninstall the potentially unwanted program, which you can do using the simple guide you can see below. We show how to uninstall unwanted programs from Windows systems, including Windows XP. Note that this version is not supported by Microsoft anymore, and it is high time you upgraded to Windows 10, which is the latest version. If you are worried about your system’s security – and rightfully so – you will want to install an anti-malware program. This is the most efficient thing you can do because once the program automatically removes Power System Care and other threats that might exist, it will also strengthen your system’s overall security. Note that if your operating system has slowed down, it is possible that real infections have found their way in, and trustworthy anti-malware software can deal with these infections in the most effective manner.
