Power Speedup 2018

What is Power Speedup 2018?

New PC optimization tools are released every year; however, some of them do not differ much from older applications. Power Speedup 2018 is the perfect example of this. It has been developed on the same template as some other PC optimization tools our specialists analyzed last year.  It looks like perfectly decent software, but what immediately causes concern about its trustworthiness is the message “The site ahead may contain harmful programs” that is displayed to users trying to open its official website https://www.speedywinutils.com. Of course, if you have an older version of the web browser you use, it is very likely that you will open it without any problems. Malware researchers working at anti-spyware-101.com have also confirmed that it is not exactly a fully reliable application. No, it is not harmful malicious software, but, according to them, it has several drawbacks that make it a potentially unwanted application.

What does Power Speedup 2018 do?

Power Speedup 2018 is very similar to some other programs released this year. These include Power Cleaner 2018, Speeduppc2018, and many others. It promises to improve the system’s performance by cleaning registry, startup programs, and all kinds of suspicious applications installed on the computer. Once Power Speedup 2018 is launched by the user, it performs a system scan and then lists “potentially unwanted items.” To be more specific, it lists untrustworthy software that has a negative impact on the system’s security, items that impact the system’s performance, items that impact startup time, and items that occupy space on the user’s computer. Unfortunately, if you click the Start Repair button after the scan, you will find out that the program’s free version is only a diagnostic tool that performs a scan but cannot fix a single issue. You can purchase the license of Power Speedup 2018 for 23.95 EUR and upgrade the program, but we would not recommend doing that. According to researchers, it seems that this potentially unwanted program focuses on the detection and removal of insignificant registry problems that do not affect the system’s performance much. Therefore, in our opinion, you should purchase the license of a more powerful PC optimization tool instead. Of course, since Power Speedup 2018 is not some kind of malicious application, we cannot forbid you to invest in it.

Where does Power Speedup 2018 come from?

An official download website of Power Speedup 2018 is available, as mentioned in the first paragraph, but it surely does not mean that all users download it from its official website consciously. Some of them cannot explain how it has entered their computers and find out about its installation only when they discover its folder in %PROGRAMFILES% (or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%) or find it listed in Control Panel. The fact that so many users do not know anything about the Power Speedup 2018 installation does not surprise us much because we know well that potentially unwanted programs like this PC optimization tool might be spread bundled with third-party programs as well. It means that users can install it on their computers themselves without even realizing that Power Speedup 2018 will be installed on their PCs too as an additional offer. Last but not least, users might be presented with pop-ups promoting Power Speedup 2018 and install this piece of software by simply clicking on that advertisement. Generally speaking, even though this potentially unwanted program can be downloaded from its official website with the single click, alternative ways of distribution might be used to spread it as well.

How to delete Power Speedup 2018

The more harmful malicious software is, the harder it is to delete it from the system. Luckily, Power Speedup 2018 is not anywhere near dangerous malware, so you could delete it from your computer using Control Panel. Of course, if you have never erased any program in your life, two words “Control Panel” might not tell anything to you. In such a case, you should follow the manual removal guide prepared by our specialists. Alternatively, you can delete all untrustworthy applications installed on your computer by performing a system scan with an antimalware scanner.
