What is PCEasyNow?

PCEasyNow is yet another questionable PC optimizer software that could pose a threat to your system security instead of eliminating it. Our malware experts at anti-spyware-101.com are not convinced that this new tool is any use to you if your objective is to secure your computer and keep it healthy. Therefore, it has been labeled as a potentially unwanted program, or PUP in short. This PUP was created by Speedy HLDGS Limited Co., a Hong Kong based company. We have seen loads of similar optimizers and cleaners emerging in the past years, including Tweakerbit Registry Optimizer and Master Pc Cleaner. These programs usually use scare tactics in their free versions to push you to purchase the full version. This means that the scan results this PUP displays might be doctored and contain fake issues and errors just to trick you into believing that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of different level errors on your system to fix. We suggest that you should remove PCEasyNow right now.test

Where does PCEasyNow come from?

You can find the official promotional page at pceasynow.com. This is a normal website that looks very similar to other PC optimizer pages. If your computer is not protected with an up-to-date anti-malware program, you can probably download the setup.exe file, because otherwise, it gets flagged right away as a potential threat source and may be blocked. But it is hard for us to believe that a lot of users would end up on this website knowingly. If you run a web search on PC optimizing and cleaning, it is quite likely that you will not find this PUP on the first results pages. However, running a search on its name could be a giveaway what you are up against. This is why it is important to double-check any new software you want to install because you may find out that actually you should delete PCEasyNow as a PUP.

Of course, there are alternative ways for this PUP to spread on the web, too. We have found it in freeware bundles, for example. Unfortunately, this also means that there could be other threats on your computer as well. A bundle can carry all kinds of PUPs and malicious software installers as well. This is how most victims infect their own machine most of the time with adware programs, fake alerts, Trojans, browser hijackers, and more. It is advisable that you avoid shady torrent, freeware, gaming, betting, and pornographic websites, which usually promote such bundles via downloads and third-party advertising. It is also possible that your computer is infected with adware and that is the reason why you are exposed to such unreliable ads. We recommend that after you remove PCEasyNow, you use a reliable malware scanner to detect all possible threats on your system.

How does PCEasyNow work?

This PUP seems to work very similarly to all others in this PC optimizer and cleaner category. The free version will not do much on your system as you may already assume. You may be presented with a scan result list that could contain hundreds of system errors but when you try to fix these, you could be prompted to buy the premium version that costs nearly $30. For this money or a bit more you could probably find a decent malware removal application that would really keep your PC safe from even such PUPs and, of course, more serious malware infections as well. Our research also shows that this PUP may collect information about you and your web browsing habits in order to display customized advertisements for you. But it might also have the capability of stealing sensitive information from your hard disk. All in all, we believe that it is best to remove PCEasyNow from your PC.

How do I delete PCEasyNow?

Finally, a bit of good news. It is quite easy to eliminate this PUP since all you need to do is location it in the list of installed programs in Control Panel and uninstall it. If you are not familiar with uninstalling an application, we suggest that you use our easy-to-follow instructions below. It should not take more than a minute even if you are not an advanced user. Please remember that it is possible that there are other potential and even malicious threats on your system. If you leave them on board, you could be exposed to dangerous third-party web content or get compromised in other ways. Thus, we recommend that you start using a reliable anti-malware program like SpyHunter.
