RunSpeedCheck

RunSpeedCheck

RunSpeedCheck is a potentially unwanted application that offers a tool to test your Internet speed. Our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com report the application’s feature for checking the Internet speed does not work at the moment of writing.

Because of this, we do not advise leaving RunSpeedCheck installed. If you noticed it on your system, and now wish to erase it, we could offer the deletion instructions available below the article.

Advance PC Protector

Advance PC Protector

Advance PC Protector is a new PC optimization tool that is advertised as a powerful “junk cleaning and privacy protection” solution. Many users install this program on their computers consciously simply because they expect that it will make their computers run like brand new. To be more specific, they expect that this tool will increase their speed and considerably improve performance by erasing all junk files, untrustworthy software, and other components that may be affecting them in a negative way. Unfortunately, what the majority of users do not know is that this piece of software will not act beneficially for free. In other words, it is not a free program. You will first have to upgrade it before it cleans your system and improves your PC performance. To tell you the truth, we cannot promise that this is really going to happen because it seems that it detects only tiny errors. It is very likely that they do not really affect system performance. If you are not going to upgrade Advance PC Protector, we would suggest that you remove it right away because it will keep showing you reminders regarding the errors detected during the diagnostic scan in the System tray, which we are sure you will sooner or later find extremely irritating. Even though Advance PC Protector can be deleted through Control Panel, it leaves some leftovers you will have to remove yourself manually. Fully reliable programs can be removed fully using Control Panel, so specialists could not call Advance PC Protector a reliable application. It has been categorized as a potentially unwanted program by them. Read more »

CastVPN

If you have downloaded CastVPN hoping to watch your favorite TV series for free, you might not know it yet, but you actually got more than you bargained for. Unfortunately, you are not the winner in this situation. The application is very intrusive, and it appears that it can be used to record incredibly sensitive information about the user and their system and browser.

Anti-Spyware-101.com research does not recommend installing any version of the potentially unwanted program (PUP), and if you have installed it already, we have a few tips that will help you remove it. If you are not sure why you should delete CastVPN in the first place, continue reading. Read more »
