I wrote this article to help you remove SpeedUp PC 2018 Virus. This SpeedUp PC 2018 Virus removal guide works for all Windows versions.

The SpeedUp PC 2018 utility is not what it claims to be. According to its advertisements, it is a free program which will optimize and clean your machine. However, it falls short of this promise. SpeedUp PC 2018 is actually categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Yet, there is nothing potential in your situation. This app is unwanted indeed. It is disguised as a helpful, legitimate program but it is a parasite. It is also lying to your face.

Do not believe a word the PUP says. Instead, do what`s best for you and your system and delete the intruder as soon as you notice it on board. If you let it stay, your situation will worsen significantly. With each passing day, the PUP will become more and more aggressive and will cause more and more problems. Do not let it. Find where it is lurking and delete it on the spot. The sooner you do so, the better.

There are many programs which can optimize your PC for free. Unfortunately, SpeedUp PC 2018 is not one of them. This PUP has hidden features. Instead of helping you, it bombards you with commercials. But do not imagine an ad or two. Oh, no. The pest injects ads on every page you open. Even the sites which used to be ad-free are now completely covered. You cannot even check your email without being redirected to a shady page a million times. It is very annoying, to say the least.

The PUP also pauses your online video for unusually long commercial breaks. It opens additional tabs non-stop. Your browsers struggle to display any content correctly. It is a nightmare. But what is more is that the PUP is trying to trick into purchasing the SpeedUp PC 2018`s full version.

Some of the ads it displays are warning signs which state that your machine is having issues with malware. Do not panic and do not trust the commercials. The only malware you need to worry about is SpeedUp PC 2018. Do not buy its full version. Your machine is fine and the crooks behind the PUP are blackmailing you. They are after your money. Once you send it to them, you may not even get the full version of SpeedUp PC 2018. Not that you need it. You don`t.

As we said, the only malware you need to worry about is SpeedUp PC 2018 and you do not need any special program to remove it. All you have to do is follow our detailed removal guide at the end of this article and soon enough your machine will be infection-free again. Do not procrastinate. Use our guide and everything will get back to normal.

How did SpeedUp PC 2018 enter your PC? Well, if you didn’t install it on purpose, the only other way for the PUP to enter it to trick you into installing it. That’s right. It cannot enter without your approval. No permission, no admission. It uses tricks to ask for your consent. One of the most commonly used methods is fake program updates. For instance, while you may think you are updating Java, you are actually installing a parasite. If you don’t want this to happen again, use only reliable download sources.

Also, do not rush the installation process. If you are in a hurry at the time, do it later, but never rush it. Always take the time to read the Terms and Conditions before accepting them. They may hide some misleading clauses which you are totally not okay with. Be vigilant. This is the only way to keep your machine safe.
