Power PC Care 2018

Power PC Care 2018

Power PC Care 2018 was classified as a potentially unwanted program or a PUP in short. Even though its description may claim the software can optimize the computer to increase its performance speed, in reality, there is not knowing whether the tool is capable of it. Our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com doubt it, and if you continue reading our article, we will explain to you why. Unfortunately, the only way to know if the software works as described is to buy its full version as the free version you can download for free only identifies what might be wrong and does not solve any issues. Consequently, we find the application rather useless and if you think so too, we invite you to use the instructions placed below the article. They will show how to delete the PUP manually, although if it looks too difficult, you could employ a legitimate antimalware tool instead. Read more »

HidenGate

HidenGate

HidenGate appears to be a potentially unwanted program. The application falls under such classification because it might be distributed with bundled software installers offered on untrustworthy file-sharing web pages. Not to mention, instead of protecting user’s network privacy it is possible the tool might track user’s browsing to show him annoying advertising content. We doubt keeping such a questionable application would be smart, which is why we advise not to waste any time with it. Those of you who would like to erase HidenGate manually could follow the instructions available at the end of this text. On the other hand, if you need more information on the potentially unwanted program before deciding what to do with it, you could have a look at the rest of this article. Read more »

SimpleHolidayRecipes Toolbar

SimpleHolidayRecipes Toolbar

Do not install SimpleHolidayRecipes Toolbar on your computer if you do not want to find your browsers’ settings altered because this is exactly what this application does. Partially, this is why it has been categorized as a potentially unwanted application by specialists. As the browser plugin’s name suggests, it provides access to holiday recipes, which sounds quite useful, we have to admit. Of course, it does not mean that the only way to find holiday recipes is to install SimpleHolidayRecipes Toolbar on the system. You can find them on the web yourself using an ordinary search provider. Potentially unwanted applications are not serious threats, so if you have installed SimpleHolidayRecipes Toolbar but have changed your opinion about its usefulness soon or the application has been installed on your computer without your knowledge, you could delete it without difficulty. You can find the manual removal guide showing how to remove SimpleHolidayRecipes Toolbar step by step below the final paragraph. Feel free to use it. Read more »

PC Repair Clinic

PC Repair Clinic

You might have downloaded the free scanner by PC Repair Clinic, and now you do not know if you should pay for the full version of the program, or if you should remove it. You might already have your answer if you are researching your removal options, but if you are still on the fence about this whole thing, you can definitely get your answer here. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has analyzed the PUP (potentially unwanted program), and it was found that while it does not show fictitious results to trick users into paying money for it, it is unlikely that its services are beneficial.

If you are here only because you want to delete PC Repair Clinic from your operating system and browsers, check out the complete guide below. If you want to learn a little bit more, keep reading.

Maxi Buy

Maxi Buy

Maxi Buy is presented as a beneficial browser extension that can help to save some time and money by finding and displaying where a particular product a user is viewing can be purchased for a lower price. It seems that users believe that this piece of software can be useful – a number of users have already installed it on their computers. To be more specific, there were 9,918 users in total who had this extension installed at the time of writing. Maxi Buy is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari (but only Google Chrome version was working properly at the time of research), which clearly shows that the developer of this application targets a wide range of users. Some users consciously install Maxi Buy on their PCs from its official website, or, in the case of Google Chrome users, directly from the Chrome Web Store, but it does not mean that it cannot enter computers illegally. As research carried out by specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com has shown, this piece of software might also come bundled, which explains why it has been categorized as a potentially unwanted application by researchers. The application might seem to be really useful, but you should definitely not keep it installed if you have not installed it yourself. Read more »

WeatherBlink Toolbar

WeatherBlink Toolbar

Your homepage and New Tab page have been changed to a page with the WeatherBlink logo not without reason. WeatherBlink Toolbar must have been installed on your computer. This piece of software has been developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc., a software developer that has already released hundreds of different applications, including AtoZManuals Toolbar, MyFileConvert Toolbar, and EasyFileConvert Toolbar. Speaking about WeatherBlink Toolbar, it has been developed to help users track the local weather, and it really looks like useful software at first glance; however, researchers working at anti-spyware-101.com do not consider it fully reliable. According to them, WeatherBlink Toolbar should be categorized as a potentially unwanted application. No, this Mindspark Toolbar is not anywhere near real malicious software, but it might still cause you problems, so it would be best that you remove it from your computer.

Search4Musix

Search4Musix

Search4Musix is not a helpful application, regardless of what its creators say. And they say that you can find music directly from your web browser’s address bar using it. Although that is not exactly a lie, some users get the idea that they can listen to any song they want as if they were streaming Spotify or iTunes, and it is impossible to compare this potentially unwanted program (PUP) with a legitimate and trustworthy streaming service provider. Although that is the main reason we classify this extension as a PUP, it is not the only one. Our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has thoroughly analyzed the extension in our internal lab, and the findings are presented further in this report. Just a quick disclaimer: The chances are that you have acquired the PUP bundled with other threats that might require removal, which is why, before you continue reading, we suggest performing a full system scan. Also note that the comments section below is open, and you can add any question you like to find an answer to. And if you are ready to delete Search4Musix, scroll down to find a removal guide.

Boost PC Pro

Boost PC Pro

If you think your operating system needs an improvement, Boost PC Pro might appear to be offering a legitimate and beneficial service. According to our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, although the application might seem useful, it is highly doubtful that it would live up to your expectations. Maybe if the program offered free services it could be considered harmless, but it is not, and the services it offers are not worth the money. This is the main reason we recommend that you remove Boost PC Pro from the Windows operating system. Of course, you must make the decision regarding this on your own, and we can only advise you and provide you with information that was gathered during the tests conducted by our virtual security experts.
