I wrote this article to help you remove PC Opticlean Virus. This PC Opticlean Virus removal guide works for all Windows versions.

PC Opticlean promised to clean your machine from unwanted, malicious programs and thus, to enhance its performance. This sounds great, if only it were true. Unfortunately, the program does no such thing. PC Opticlean is categorized as a potentially unwanted program, or PUP, for short. However, the word “potentially” is completely unnecessary. The PUP is unwanted indeed. It doesn’t help your machine perform better. It doesn’t enhance your online experience. It doesn’t remove parasites either. Basically, it does nothing good to your system. On the contrary, actually. It corrupts it.

The PUP destroys your previously normal and enjoyable browsing experience and exposes you to both malware and security risk. There is nothing potential in your situation. You are constantly in danger because of PC Opticlean. The best thing you can do is delete the lying program as fast as you can. Once you spot it in your system, take immediate actions and get rid of it on the spot. The more time you grant it on board, the more time it has to cause you damage. Eventually, it will succeed. Do yourself a favor and uninstall it before it is too late. If you don’t, your predicament will worsen really fast and then you may not be able to deal with the PUP. Act now. Delays lead to regrets.

As we said, PC Opticlean doesn’t optimize anything. It is an advertising platform. However, it has no verifying mechanism which means that anyone who is willing to pay can use it to promote. Hacker included. And they do. They use the PUP to gain pay-per-click revenue and to spread malicious content online. This means that the numerous ads you are forced to see are unreliable. You cannot tell which ones are real and which ones are corrupted. They all look the same, advertising great deals and offers and prompting you to click on them. Do not make that mistake. If you click on the wrong ad/link, you may worsen your already pretty unpleasant situation.

Most of these ads either lead to pages full of infections or they conceal infections themselves. Either way, a single click is all it takes for you to get infected with more malware. Don’t click. Avoid everything you see on your screen. Yet, avoidance is just a temporary solution. It basically equals not using your PC. The adverts are countless. Sooner or later you will click even if you don’t want to.

Commercials sometimes appear right under the cursor of your mouse. And they become more and more as time passes. The only way to get rid of them is to remove the PC Opticlean altogether. This is exactly what you must do. This deceiving program needs to go. Once you get rid of it, everything will get back to normal and you will be able to surf the web at peace again. Don’t hesitate. Use our removal guide below and clean your PC for good. The sooner, the better.

How did PC Opticlean manage to enter your system? We doubt that you downloaded it on purpose even though the pest has an official download. In enter behind your back, probably bundled to another program. Be extra careful when you install apps on your machine as you don’t know what else may be attached to them as a very unwanted “bonus”. Opt for the Custom settings in the Setup Wizard instead of the Basic ones. You will be able to check the entire bundle program by program as well as deselect all extras before finishing the installation. Under the Basic settings, these additionally attached apps get installed automatically and then you have to deal with them later on. Yet, a little extra time and attention can save you the troubles of doing that.
