Do you know what Smart PC Cleaner is?

If this program happens to pop up on your screen out of nowhere, you should not panic. It is not a rogue antispyware application, nor is it a dangerous computer infection. Even if you did not install it willingly, Smart PC Cleaner comes from the same family as ProPCClearn, Optimizer Pro, and we know exactly what you can expect from this application. And that thing is nuisance. The program uses aggressive marketing tactics to get into your computer, and once it does, it annoys you further on with various notifications and pop-up messages that claim your computer has multiple errors. For instance, Smart PC Cleaner may tell you the following:
Smart PC Cleaner found 216 items to clean and optimize your PC.
To immediately clean and optimize your PC you need to register Smart PC Cleaner.
This is the message that the program displays after a full system “scan.” As you can see, the application offers to “fix” the supposed errors, but you need to register Smart PC Cleaner or buy the full version, in other words. Unfortunately, there is no data that would suggest this application can really solve the problems it detects. If anything, it can only cause potential issues by installing additional unwanted software.
