How to remove Chrono SpeedUp

Chrono SpeedUp is a rogue-type program distributed across many Windows users. The main concept of this utility lies in PC optimization to keep your system clean and protected against malicious threats. Unfortunately, many experts, as well as users themselves, tend to express heavy doubts about its capabilities. Chrono SpeedUp is suspected of fabricating scan results to force users into activating the license. In other words, this is a premium version that has to be purchased to access all features of the optimization program. Without it, users will be unable to delete all threats outlined in fake post-scan results. Chrono SpeedUp is not the first program we see of this sort. According to some sources it is one of the hundreds of clones of notorious PC Accelerate Pro scam. There have been many similar programs like Chrono SpeedUp pursuing money, but not quality. Nobody downloads them intentionally, so their creators use unwanted and stealth distribution methods to get installed against users' consent and make them believe their PC needs help. If you really want to equip yourself with modern and high-quality optimization software, it is better to opt for already trusted and long-existent programs like CleanMyPC, IObit, and other reputable products. We encourage you to delete Chrono SpeedUp from your system as long as it brings no value to the PC experience. Make sure to follow our instructions below and get rid of the program completely without traces.

How to uninstall stubborn apps on Mac

Some apps installed on Mac can be extremely annoying and piss off many users that struggle to delete them. This is especially popular with low-reputation products that try to stick around systems as long as possible. Rather than developing their own quality, they focus on making their apps undeletable to force inexperienced people to continue the usage. Oftentimes, manual uninstallation of such apps can leave lots of residual files that will accumulate over time loading up system resources. If you consider yourself part of this category, we will help you unchain your Mac from persistent software that mulishly hangs inside of your system.

How to remove Pegasun System Utilities

Pegasun System Utilities is suspected of fabricating scan results to convince users their PC is under severe condition. It is also distributed using doubtful methods to avoid users' consent, which makes it categorized as a Potentially Unwanted App. On the initial basis, the program is represented as a utility with lots of helpful abilities to maintain a high level of system performance. The supposedly fake optimizer provides a bundle of features like cleaning, protection, optimization, data backup, and other sub-tools. It also has support for the latest Windows 11. As mentioned, this optimization utility is heavily doubted in generating trustworthy results and fixing any issues at all. After detecting space issues and security threats, Pegasun System Utilities asks you to purchase the premium version. Otherwise, your PC will remain cluttered or endangered by other threats. The information it claims is likely to be falsified and should not be trusted by users. Also, such drawbacks may raise a serious question of whether Pegasun System Utilities collects your data or not. Many unwanted apps can read your PC sessions and gather potentially useful data that cybercriminals can convert into financial benefits.

How to remove VK+OK AdBlock

Many experts consider VK+OK AdBlock to be an unwanted browser extension. Such an assumption is true as long as it runs suspicious activity without the consent of users. Initially, VK+OK AdBlock is the name of a Google Chrome extension available for download in the official store. Its main goal is to improve the browsing experience by blocking ads across all social media popular in Russia. However, despite it is able to perform this feature indeed, some actions taken by the extension are shady and do not consent users. At first, VK+OK AdBlock keeps sending information to its server in Russia even when users stop using any social media websites. This says there is a risk of data surveillance, which can be gathered by the developers and used in illegal needs. The second suspicious thing is why VK+OK AdBlock ads itself to the exception list of Windows Defender. Apparently, the extension has some security issues and does not want to be removed by the antivirus program. Lack of transparency, as well as unwanted distribution methods, puts VK+OK AdBlock onto the list of potentially unwanted extensions that should be removed from your system.
