What is SafeSoft PC Cleaner

SafeSoft PC Cleaner is an unwanted system optimization utility. Programs of such are usually not able to provide the high-quality features they claim. They promise to fix various issues (e.g. obsolete Windows Registry items, junk files like cache, memory dumps, and so forth), but in turn create fake problem results to trick users into activating paid versions. SafeSoft PC Cleaner is not an exception as it is also suspected to do the same. Furthermore, some security experts point out that the program can be malicious and therefore dangerous for users who have it installed and running. If SafeSoft PC Cleaner got installed on your system, be it with or without your consent, we recommend you remove it and not pay for any services it may thereby offer. Use our guide below to do it fast and without traces.

How SafeSoft PC Cleaner infected your computer

Unwanted programs like SafeSoft PC Cleaner can be seen on landing pages responsible for their promotion. Users may accidentally click on deceptive links, buttons, or ads that lead to such websites. Their goal is to make users believe downloading the advertised software will be useful for their PC and experience as a whole. The majority of victims getting successfully caught by such tricks are inexperienced or naive users. Never click on or download something you are not familiar with. Even legitimate software may be impersonated by malware on fake websites to fool you into its installation. Dubious optimization tools and Windows updates are especially popular among cybercriminals to use for malicious distribution purposes. Beware of them and double-check domains to make sure you visit the authentic website. It is also worth mentioning that much dubious software can be spread using “bundling” methods – this is when a third-party program is promoted alongside other software installers.
