BROOM PC Cleaner
BROOM PC Cleaner might seem like a legitimate and even beneficial program, but our research team warns that it is not so great. On the contrary, one of the files downloaded and used by this potentially unwanted program (PUP) can be recognized as a Trojan. Since this file runs along with other files of the PUP, you might consider it to be an integral part of the suspicious system optimizer; however, in reality, it contains functions that do not affect the functionality of the PUP. Even if you decide to put that aside, the program itself is neither helpful nor reliable, and that is why we recommend deleting it without further delay. If you continue reading, you will learn about your options when it comes to the removal of BROOM PC Cleaner. If you decide to uninstall the program, take note that leftovers exist. The suspicious Trojan part is also left behind. The good news is that there is a way to eliminate all components that belong to the potentially unwanted program.
The official download page of BROOM PC Cleaner is broomcleaner.com. According to the information that is available on this website, the program can remove “redundant data” and temporary files, clean up the Windows Registry, and even speed up the system. Needless to say, these features can sound pretty amazing, especially if your computer has started running sluggishly. If that is the case, the first thing we recommend doing is scanning your operating system. A legitimate malware scanner will warn you if there are threats that have caused your system to run slower or in a disorderly way. You should also use a malware scanner if you downloaded BROOM PC Cleaner using an unfamiliar installer because this installer could have bundled the PUP along with other questionable and even malicious files and programs. Hopefully, the scanner does not find anything else that you need to delete because understanding the PUP can be challenging enough. After all, it looks completely harmless, and the price for the services it offers does not seem to be too steep. At the time of research, it was $19.99.
Speaking about the price for the services of BROOM PC Cleaner, do you understand what you would be paying for? First of all, it is unclear whether $19.99 is a one-time payment or if it is a monthly or annually price. How can you pay money for something without fully understanding the conditions? The installation of the program is bizarre as well. Once the downloader is executed, there is no user interface, and it is not possible to customize any settings, which is very unsettling. In fact, it looks like the program installs itself silently, without your consent. Once in, BROOM PC Cleaner creates dwm.exe, which our research team identifies as a Trojan downloader. According to our team, this file possesses the ability to listen in on incoming connections, gather information, as well as evade detection. During the analysis, the file was capable of accessing the links.txt file that the PUP creates in %ALLUSERSPROFILE%. The accessed file can be read to download a file from uploadbase.in/dwmk.exe (the link is in the file). This poses a threat that the file could download any file without the user’s knowledge.
There is no shadow of doubt in the minds of our malware researchers that deleting BROOM PC Cleaner is the right move. This application is NOT beneficial, and the silent activity and unpredictable nature of its components is very unnerving. If you do not want to potentially put yourself and your entire operating system at risk, we strongly recommend removing BROOM PC Cleaner from your Windows operating system. According to the information on the official download website, this PUP is compatible with Windows starting with the Windows 7 version, and the manual removal guide reflects that. Hopefully, you find it easy to get rid of the potentially unwanted program yourself, but if you face struggles, remember that you can employ anti-malware software. This software is especially helpful if there are several programs that require removal, as they can be eliminated simultaneously. Also, it is helpful because of the additional security services it provides.
