Advance PC Protector

What is 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.testtesttest

What does Advance PC Protector do?

To be frank, Advance PC Protector does not differ much from other PC optimization tools that have been categorized as potentially unwanted software. Once installed on the system, the application performs a diagnostic system scan and then lists the number of malware, junk files, System Cache items, and Internet Privacy-related problems it has detected during the system scan. Also, users can see the system’s overall condition, for example, Poor indicated under the PC Stability tab. Advance PC Protector seems to be a powerful optimizer, but this is just a pretty face, as people say. It mainly detects junk files, browsing cookies, and some malware. In other words, it cannot detect and fix serious problems. This is no doubt one of its drawbacks, but the majority of users decide to remove it from their computers soon after installing it because they find out that it is not going to clean the computer for free. You will see this for yourself if you click the Start Repair or Fix Now button after the scan. You will be asked to enter the active license key first. That is, you will have to activate the program in the first place. Its price depends on the type of the license, for example, the license for 18 months costs 49.99 USD, whereas you could use it for 6 months if you pay 24.99 USD. Is it worth investing in this potentially unwanted program? Our answer would be negative, and we really hope that you will arrive at the same decision too.

Where does Advance PC Protector come from?

Some users download Advance PC Protector directly from, which is known to be its official website, but we are sure some users do not know much about its installation on their computers simply because it has been installed on their computers as one of the components of a software bundle. Potentially unwanted programs are not malicious, so it is not that easy to recognize them. Therefore, we want to encourage all users to install a trustworthy antimalware tool on their computers. If you keep the tool active and update it periodically, it will not allow you to install any suspicious software ever again.
