Unfortunately, the majority of them regret doing that. If you do not like how One10 PC Cleaner acts too, you should remove it as soon as possible.

Users cannot even believe that One10 PC Cleaner is a suspicious application because it will really scan the system and then will provide the total number of items that supposedly have to be optimized and/or cleaned. Unfortunately, the application will only delete files from the %Temp% folder if you click on the Clean button, which is far from optimizing the system’s performance. If you click on the Antimalware tab with an intention to scan your system against malicious software, you will notice that you have to buy it.
