Smart PC Tweaker

Smart PC Tweaker

Smart PC Tweaker is a new questionable application that claims to "speed up your Windows PC"; however we are not convinced that this is your best choice out there. As a matter of fact, our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that this seems to be a rogue PC optimizer just like Wise System Mechanic and Swift PC Optimizer. Thus, we have labeled this application as a potentially unwanted program, or PUP. This usually means that such a program does not mean direct danger and there are no malicious traits found, but its operations can still be suspicious. For example, this PUP may enter your system along with malware infections, which could cause multiple system security threats.

Mac Tweaker

Mac Tweaker is a new application that claims to make your Mac run smoothly, faster, and error free, too; however, we are not really convinced that this rather pricey tool is worth it. As a matter of fact, our malware experts at anti-spyware-101.com say that this software is very similar to the questionable PC optimizers Windows users have been used to. This potentially unwanted program (PUP) has proven to be a rogue system optimizer for Mac OS X 10.7 and above to allegedly clean and tweak the system. Although this PUP claims "state of the art technology," we have found that it is very similar to other Mac optimizers like Mac Optimizer and MacKeeper. We do not claim that this program has malicious intentions and it does look all legitimate on the surface, but we do not believe that it is worth almost 40 EUR to do no visible or real change regarding performance. This is why we recommend that you remove Mac Tweaker from your computer as soon as possible. Read more »

The potentially unreliable third-party advertisements this PUP may flood your screen with could be rather annoying; however, if you were to engage with them, even if accidentally, you might open malicious web pages or directly drop malware infections onto your system.

Meme Generator - MemeTab

Meme Generator - MemeTab

Meme Generator - MemeTab may seem like a good idea to have in your browser if you are a fan of quick laughs offered by memes, but we would advise you against it. Our malware experts have found that although this tool may work just fine as a meme creator, it may, at the same time, provide you with manipulated search results.

This also means that it is likely that you will find more serious threats on your computer than this PUP. Still, do not forget about the possibility that this tool can present to you potentially unreliable third-party ads and sponsored links, too. We suggest that you remove Meme Generator - MemeTab from your PC and eliminate all other possible threats as well. Read more »
