Do you know what PC Privacy Dock is?
If you are looking for an application to boost your virtual security, you must know that PC Privacy Dock is not the best choice. In fact, it has been dubbed a potentially unwanted program by your research team because of its suspicious functionality and questionable distribution methods. On its official website, this program is advertised as a great tool that should help you improve your virtual security and optimize your operating system for the best possible performance. While it might sound like a great application to have, you must know that it does not function in the best possible way. We firmly believe that PC Privacy Dock should be removed since it holds few if any valuable features. In this article, we discuss the functionality of PC Privacy Dock and provide its detailed removal guide.
During our research we have found that as soon as this suspicious optimization tool enters your operating system it will almost immediately start a system scan, which does not take long but provides an extensive list of various errors within your operating system. At first the errors might seem legitimate, and, in fact, a user with no advanced computer knowledge would not be able to tell that more than a handful of them are suspicious, to say the least. Our research team has noticed that the list of alleged errors includes inactive registry entries that do not affect your PC in a negative or positive way, as well as quite a few temporary files. This is probably used to scare unsuspecting Internet users into thinking that their PC is at high risk. To fix these alleged threats with PC Privacy Dock, you will need to purchase a full version of it, which we do not recommend because you can spend your money on better applications to achieve system optimization. Such a questionable way of functioning is the main reason we advise users to delete PC Privacy Dock from their operating system.PC Privacy Dock screenshot

Another major reason PC Privacy Dock is considered to be a potentially unwanted program is its questionable distribution. Though it is possible to download this suspicious optimization tool from its official website, it has been found that in quite a few cases this suspicious program is spread via bundled installers. Developers of malicious programs often use this way of distribution. To avoid getting your PC infected in such a way, make sure to stay away from third-party download websites that are known to be the primary source of such bundled installers. Besides that, you are advised to implement a professional antimalware tool since it provides overall system security at all times and is your best bet to keep your PC safe and secure.
The removal of PC Privacy Dock, fortunately, is rather simple since it is possible to delete it via Control Panel. Unfortunately, in some cases it might be that not every single bit of this suspicious program is removed. This is quite alarming because this questionable application might use just a few leftover files or registry entries to restore itself. This is why you are advised to conduct an in-depth analysis of your PC for potential leftovers of PC Privacy Dock.
