How to remove PC Performer

PC Performer is considered to be a fake registry cleaner utility. There is a number of similar programs that promote performance-improving tools. Unfortunately, not all of them can brag about quality. This is the case with PC Performer as it is suspected of generating exaggerated results along with false positives. In other words, issues found by PC Performer can be fake and misleading. After locating registry problems, developers will try to impose a paid version of their software. This has to be purchased in order to solve the existing errors. However, it is likely that PC Performer will simply remove false errors and claim your PC to be clean. Thus, there is no benefit in using PC Performer, on the contrary, it may also collect your personal data and sell it to third-party figures. Applications like PC Performer are usually installed without users' consent. This is another trait making this program classified as Potentially Unwanted Software. Therefore, it should be removed from your system as soon as possible. To do this, follow our tutorial below.

How to remove Telamon Cleaner

Unwanted programs like Telamon Cleaner are claimed to be helpful utilities meant for optimizing system performance. The reason why it is classified as unwanted software stands due to unproven efficiency and intrusive spreading techniques. Once Telamon Cleaner or any other similar program gets its hands onto your system, you will see it bombarding your screen with threatening warnings. This is meant to convince inexperienced users that their PCs are heavily junked with unwanted files or malware. Unfortunately, such warnings are more likely to be fake as most experts doubt the Telamon Cleaner's ability to execute efficient clean-ups of malware and redundant data. By showing fake lists of generated issues, developers try to deceive gullible users into activating the full version, which requires some money to pay. After purchasing, the unwanted program will simply erase the generated entries and claim your PC to be optimized eventually. In addition to that, most unwanted programs have data-tracking abilities. This means that Telamon Cleaner can also collect personal data like passwords, IP addresses, geolocations, and other types of intel that may bring revenues to the extortionists. If you did not install Telamon Cleaner on purpose, then you should remove it immediately to prevent wasting time and system resources on rendering this program on your PC.

How to remove CPU Guardian

CPU Guardian is a rogue type of ostensibly helpful applications meant to optimize your system. Usually, such utilities appear without users' consent. Once they are installed, you will start getting a number of warnings that claim your PC to be severely junked. In order to solve the detected problems, users have to opt for the paid version of the software. Unfortunately, the only goal pursued by developers of such apps is a monetary benefit. This is because the generated issues are often fake and non-existent on your computer. It is true that cached files tend to accumulate on all computers over some period of time. However, if you really want to maintain your PC, it is better to go for trusted software like CleanMyPC or ComboCleaner that provides efficient and versatile tools to speed up the system. Below, we will show you the steps to remove CPU Guardian so that it does not bother you anymore.

How to remove CryptoTab

CryptoTab is a hijacker infection coming in both extension and browser versions (CryptoTab Browser, Crypto Tab START). No matter which one affects your system, both of them pursue the same purpose - change settings in order to promote unwanted content. Although CryptoTab is ostensibly useful for people involved in crypto, its secondary activity might bear a threat to the privacy of users. Besides changing your search engine and homepage settings to work through CryptoTab services, it is also capable of collecting personal data. The way CryptoTab stores and manages your data remains quite dubious as well. CryptoTab is known to be developed by MindSpark, a company notorious for developing and spreading various toolbars and browser hijackers detected to run suspicious changes. Not to be surprised by malicious ads and banners as well. CryptoTab may capitalize on poor advertising networks in favor of monetary gains. If you found your browser affected by exact or similar changes, it is necessary to detect the unwanted program and delete it from your computer. Below, we will show how to do this.

How to remove Advanced System Protector

Advanced System Protector is a fancy-looking PC optimizing utility, meant to improve your system. The interface of a program shows that it is able to detect various types of infections, put them in the quarantine lists, establish protection, and other features like that. However, the only thing remaining unclear is whether Advanced System Protector is reliable or not. Most cyber experts including the Malwarebytes team doubt its efficiency in solving the privacy issues. This is because such programs have narrow threat databases and tend to generate non-existent problems. By doing so, developers force people into buying the extended version to access a set of full capabilities. Oftentimes, Advanced System Protector appears on systems without users' consent. Soon after spotting it out, most users begin to wonder how to remove Advanced System Protector correctly - and this is exactly what we will answer in the article below.

How to remove SlimCleaner Plus

SlimCleaner Plus is a PC optimization program that claims to extend battery, improve system performance, and so on. It does so by providing junk removal, registry cleaner, and other instruments meant to boost up your PC. Unfortunately, SlimCleaner Plus is not the most viable solution when it comes to system improvement. The app is more often categorized as unwanted software as it is distributed beyond the consent of users. Although SlimCleaner was reviewed by PCMag in 2016 and proven to be effective in some aspects of cleaning, most experts still doubt its boasted abilities. SlimCleaner also comes in a free version, however, it is hard enough to boost up your system. This is why developers offer to switch up to the paid version with unlimited access to all of its features. Our advice is to avoid spending money on such products, especially if you did not expect them to appear on your system. Therefore, our advice is to use wide-known utilities like CleanMyPC for making your computer a faster and safer place to work on. Below, you will find extended instructions on how to remove SlimCleaner Plus and find better alternatives to improve your system.
