Where does Smart PC Tweaker come from?

It is possible, although quite unlikely, that you installed this PUP knowingly by visiting its official website at In all fairness, this website looks totally fine and professional; practically almost identical to all other PUPs in this PC optimizer category. But, it does not make it any better or reliable, the fact that it has a legitimate and professional-looking website. In fact, this is why we emphasize the need for a proper web search before you download anything from the net. If you have an application name in mind already, one that you would like to install, you had better run a Google or any other search you can trust and see what you find. We bet that in this case, you would find a search results page filled with hits leading to malware researcher websites telling you to delete Smart PC Tweaker as a PUP.

However, you may also be able to install this software without noticing it. How is this possible? Well, imaging installing a software bundle and you rush the process by choosing quick installation and skipping each screen without reading them carefully. Do this ring the bell? Unfortunately, a lot of inexperienced users infect their computer this way. Most of the time people may not even realize that what they are installing is not a standalone application but a package. Such a bundle can pack several PUPs as well as malware infections like adware, Trojans, ransomware, browser hijackers, fake alerts, and more. This is why you always need to make sure that you are aware of the whole content before installing such a bundle. If you want to avoid downloading bundles, you need to stay away from shady file-sharing sites, clicking on unsafe third-party ads on suspicious websites, or make sure that your PC is not infected already. We suggest that you run a reliable online malware scanner after you delete Smart PC Tweaker.

How does Smart PC Tweaker work?

Our research shows that this questionable optimizer is indeed identical to Mac Tweaker. This PUP claims the usual that it can make your PC run faster; however, even Microsoft does not seem to believe in such fairy tales. All these PC optimizers in this category are considered a scam by most malware researchers because there is no proof that they can visibly make any change in performance that would benefit the user. Even if these programs tend to claim to boost your PC, removing hundreds of temporary files and unused registry entries will not make too much difference. In this case though, this PUP also claims that it removes malware as well, which we did not find proven in our tests as it did not even clean simple and basic malware infections. Such a rogue optimizer usually shows you hundreds of scan results listing system issues that need fixing. But you cannot fix them with the free version, so you are prompted to buy the full version. Since this PUP seems like a low-quality product that is not really beneficial for you in any way, we do not think that it is worth paying for it at all. We recommend that you remove Smart PC Tweaker from your computer.
