PUP.Speedy SystemCare

PUP.Speedy SystemCare

If you are hoping to increase the speed and efficiency of your operating system using Speedy SystemCare, we have bad news for you: This potentially unwanted program cannot help you that well. According to Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, the infection could remove temporary files, as well as registries that are not important to the system. Would that increase the speed? It is highly unlikely that it would. The PUP is only advertised as an amazing tool so that its creator could push more users into paying for its services. Although anyone can install the application for free, its alleged services cost €23.95. That is not a lot, but it is 23.95 too much for what is offered. Whether or not you have invested in the tool already, we strongly recommend deleting Speedy SystemCare from your operating system, and if you do not understand why that is so, you should continue reading the report. If you are ready to eliminate the PUP from your operating system, move to the last paragraph of the report and choose your preferred method. Read more »

Advanced Speedup 2018

Advanced Speedup 2018

Advanced Speedup 2018 is not a PC optimization tool you should entrust your system’s cleanup and optimization to because it has turned out to be a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and, on top of that, research has clearly shown that the free version of the program, i.e. the version that can be downloaded from http://www.mypcclean.online, which is its official website, only works as a diagnostic tool. In other words, it could not boost your computer's performance. Of course, you could purchase the license and upgrade it, but Advanced Speedup 2018 will no doubt be a huge disappointment to you if you clicked the Download button on its official website expecting that you could improve your PC performance for free. If you have not found this program very useful, and you are 100% sure that you will not upgrade it, it would be best that you remove it fully in case you have already installed it on your system. We do not try to convince you here that potentially unwanted programs are extremely malicious because it is not true, but we suggest that you still remove Advanced Speedup 2018 because it might start showing annoying pop-ups to remind you about the detected issues. Also, it might show pop-ups to encourage you to buy the license. Since there are so many fully reliable PC optimization tools available on the market, we do not think that it is the best decision to invest in Advanced Speedup 2018. Of course, the final decision is yours to make. Read more »

Nog4yH4n Project Ransomware

Nog4yH4n Project Ransomware

Windows users are alerted about Nog4yH4n Project Ransomware. At the time of research conducted by our expert Anti-Spyware-101.com analysts, the malicious infection was not spreading actively. That was, most likely, due to the fact that the infection did not work as intended. Since there is absolutely no way we could predict the emergence of new infections or the upgrade of ineffective ones, we cannot say that this ransomware is a non-threat. We have to think of all possibilities, and one of them is that the threat will be fixed up and unleashed to invade unguarded Windows operating systems. When this threat invades, it is meant to encrypt files and attach the “.locked” extension to their names. Unfortunately, once files are encrypted, it is not possible to decrypt them. The only chance the victims of file-encrypting malware have to restore their files is if they are backed up. Backup copies should be stored on virtual clouds or external storage drives to ensure that they are not affected by malware. Whether or not you need to delete Nog4yH4n Project Ransomware from your operating system already, this removal guide shows how to do it, as well as how to prevent ransomware from harming files in the future.

LearnTheLyrics Toolbar

LearnTheLyrics Toolbar

LearnTheLyrics Toolbar is an application that was created by Mindspark Interactive Network, the same company that created EverydayMemo Toolbar, MyWayNotes Toolbar, WeatherBlink Toolbar, and hundreds of other applications that work in the same way. These toolbars always promote links to third-party sites, they always use the same search engine to provide users with a search service, and they always record and share data with third parties. All of these things contribute to our recommendation to delete LearnTheLyrics Toolbar and other toolbars alike. Why? The toolbars cannot be considered useful just because they offer links to useful sites. The search tool cannot be trusted just because it allegedly is “enhanced by Google.” Finally, the fact that undisclosed parties can obtain data about your virtual activity is disconcerting. We expand on all of this in the report, and if you are interested in learning more, keep on reading. Our Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers have analyzed the PUP (potentially unwanted program) thoroughly, and if you have any questions about it, you can use the comments section to start a discussion.
