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 »

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.

Naturally, if you do not like the thought it could introduce you to unreliable content, we would advise deleting Free Forms Now before anything goes wrong. The removal process will be explained in the instructions added below the text, but if you want to know more about this PUP, we would recommend reading the rest of this article first. Read more »

PUP.Daily File Converter

PUP.Daily File Converter

Daily File Converter is a free tool for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browsers that is meant to convert files. Although the extension works, there is no need to install it because its services are neither exclusive nor highly useful. Unless you convert files all the time, you really need to think carefully if you should get involved. The services promoted by the extension are offered at cloudconvert.com, and so you might as well bookmark this website rather than install a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Well, what could go wrong if you installed it? First and foremost, that depends on how you install it.

goDownload Search Plus

goDownload Search Plus

Do you download new programs and extensions frequently? If you do, goDownload Search Plus might seem like a great program. The Chrome webstore installer introduces this potentially unwanted program (PUP) as this “powerful search engine” that, allegedly, can offer you “a variety of unique features and search tools.” The application is presented at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/godownload-search-plus/cbieibobpefaobhfncpimjimbijplebe by gozooms.com. This source promotes “Zooms Start,” “Search by Zooms,” and “Musix.” We do not recommend installing any of these add-ons, especially if you are not willing to research them first. In general, the extension we are discussing is not represented in a very clear or straightforward manner. It doesn’t even seem to have an official downloader. Is this a reason enough to remove goDownload Search Plus? It might be, but we can provide you with other reasons. If you continue reading this report, you will learn how to delete this PUP, and you will understand why that might be the best thing to do. As always, if there are any questions you come up with while reading this report, you can use the comments section to post them. Read more »
