Magic Disk

Magic Disk

Magic Disk, also known as Mgdisk, is a potentially unwanted program. At the time of research, our Anti-Spyware-101.com malware experts could not find an official download source that would represent this strange application. That, of course, does not mean that it is not spread. It appears that this program is being distributed using software bundles, which means that it can be spread along with other potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) and even malicious infections. Do you remember specifically which programs were installed along with the suspicious one discussed in this report? Even if you do, and you are sure that they are harmless and do not need to be deleted, installing a legitimate malware scanner is an important step.

Super PC Cleanup

Super PC Cleanup

Same as its clone (Super Cleanup), Super PC Cleanup falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs or PUPs. According to the software’s description located on its official website, the tool is supposed to get rid of registry errors, fix slow PCs, improve system performance, and make the computer more stable. However, the PUP does not suggest any free trials, which means it does not do a lot if you do not buy it. In fact, we do not think even the paid application’s version could be able to deliver what its description promises. That is because we noticed the program detects minor issues and our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com say fixing such problems would probably make no difference at all to the device’s performance, speed, etc. Therefore, we do not recommend wasting any time on it or spending your money for such a doubtful application. If you believe it might be a bad idea as well, we advise you to remove Super PC Cleanup with the instructions available below or an antimalware tool of your choice. Read more »

Auto PC Booster 2018

Auto PC Booster 2018

Auto PC Booster 2018 falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs.

Usually, such PC optimizers promise to speed up the computer’s performance, but all they do is scan the system and show invalid Registry files.
