DailyPCClean is an unwanted system optimization utility that promises to boost the performance of your PC. It claims to have the necessary set of cleaning features that will maintain the system clean and fast to use. Although DailyPCClean may seem totally legitimate, its capabilities may not be as effective as it claims them to be. The purpose of many unreliable software vendors is to monetize their utilities off of falsified and untrustworthy lists of detected problems. In other words, an unwanted program may display a fake or not diligent list of PC issues to make users upgrade to a premium version. Furthermore, many potentially unwanted programs can stealthily collect personal data (e.g, IP addresses, geolocations, browsing history, etc.) in various browsers that people use. This information can therefore be sold and misused for generating profits. For now, DailyPCClean has not been observed to have such features we mentioned above, however, due to its stealthy infiltration methods through other software, it is therefore categorized as an unwanted program. Users are thus recommended to uninstall it from their system and get more reputable system cleaners instead. Also, it may sometimes become hard to delete DailyPCClean due to some values it tends to install inside of a system. If this is your case, feel free to follow our tutorial below and delete it together with us!
According to information written on the official website, IdleCrawler is a piece of software allowing users get insights about their competitors and create successful marketing campaigns (by tracking SERP information). Unfortunately, it's usefulness is heavily doubted due to poor performance of the proclaimed features. During investigation, it was found that IdleCrawler does not create any boot-up shortcuts which makes its usage uncertain. The only way users find out about its presence is if they open a list of all programs. Once installed, it automatically launches two processes called
Navigate.exe, which run in the background and cause high CPU usage. This can therefore lead to slower PC performance and Internet speed. In addition to this, IdleCrawler also installs two entries in Windows Task Scheduler named
Special IC Runnerand
Advanced IC Updating. The first is meant to boot the app each time a user logs into Windows and the other is used for downloading configuration instructions for the already mentioned Runner.exe process. As a rule, software like IdleCrawler is less likely to be installed by users themselves - instead, it is usually distributed via third-party program installers and without users' consent. We should therefore note that IdleCrawler is not a piece of malware, but rather unwanted software that may get installed unwillingly. This and other information stated above gives a solid amount of reasons why IdleCrawler should be removed from your system. You can follow our guide below to do it effectively without traces.
ScanGuard positions itself as a useful PC optimization utility. It is, however, oftentimes categorized as unwanted software due to potentially sneaky distribution techniques. Most users get it either without consent or by accidentally allowing it during some other program installation. As a rule, such system optimizers have doubtful functionality performance. While ScanGuard claims to ensure safety on the web and against viruses, run disk cleanups, and also boost PC performance, it is often doubted in doing so effectively. On top of that, some unreliable system optimizers tend to create false lists of threats to make users purchase the premium version. Doing so will most probably be a waste of money due to generally poor capabilities of such software. If ScanGuard appeared without your knowledge or you were convinced to download it from somewhere, we therefore recommend you remove it using our guidelines below.
Vkontakte DJ is a dubious desktop application that distributes itself under the name of a legitimate and popular Russian social media platform called "Vkontakte". A number of research groups classified it as a browser hijacker due to its features to change the browser homepage and search engine to yandex.ru without users' consent. On the initial basis, Vkontakte DJ positions itself as an application designed to help users download music and video without limitations. However, although such features may sound useful, their fulfillment may be poor and not bring the expected user experience. Users facing Vkontakte DJ on their PCs have also seen two more pieces of software installed in addition to it - "Yandex browser" and "Browser Manager". It is also likely you will see the icons of these programs pinned on the taskbar. Although the Yandex browser is legitimate, the company itself has a bad reputation for using intrusive methods of promoting its software. Note that Vkontakte DJ does not have any direct relation to Yandex, however, its developers may be in collaboration to promote Yandex services for getting money once successful installations occur. Vkontakte DJ is not a virus, but should be viewed as an unwanted application if you received it without permission. In such a case, we advise you to remove the application and everything else related to it (e.g. "Yandex browser", "Browser Manager", etc.). Use our guide below to do it fast and without traces.
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.
SHIBA (SHIB) Giveaway is presented as a legitimate giveaway campaign meant to globalize the use of Shiba Inu, a cryptocurrency supported by Elon Musk. In fact, this is a pure scam intended to extort money from naive people. The Giveaway website claims it will double your coins right after you send them. The amount of coins that can be sent is between 200,000,000 SHIB to 15,000,000,000 SHIB. In dollars, this is 3,000 - 200,000 $. Users are unable to send small amounts of money to test if this scheme actually works. This instantly says they cannot be trusted and should be avoided no matter how attractive it seems. It is less likely that somebody will throw money like this just because there is nothing to profit from. The total giveaway pool is 1 trillion Shiba Inu coins - about 30 Million dollars. Websites like this are very popular across the entire web. Users can be redirected to them after clicking on dubious ads, buttons, or links that are located on unreliable pages. In this case, it is enough to close the page and prevent yourself from getting baited into a scam.

Sessions may be accompanied by unexpected redirects, overwhelming amounts of ads, and other suspicious content that diminish your usage significantly. In addition, potentially unwanted programs may also stealthily track what you do on the internet. Passwords, IP-addresses, Banking credentials, and other valuable information can be captured and used by cybercriminals for personal benefit in the future. Therefore, it is important to detect and remove it from your system as soon as possible. Our guide below will help you do this.
