Do you know what Super PC Cleanup is?
Why did you download Super PC Cleanup? Is it because this application promised to clean up the Windows Registry and make your operating system run faster and better? This is what the creator of this potentially unwanted program (PUP) wants you to believe because you are more likely to purchase the paid version of this tool if you do. The creator is Jawego Partners LLC, and it is also responsible for Super Cleanup. As you can see, the names of these applications are very similar, but there is more to it, as they are also identical in the way they are represented to users and the way they function. It is possible that other clones exist too, but we do not have enough information regarding that yet. What we can tell you is that you should delete Super PC Cleanup and any of its clones without any hesitation. Even if it appears to be legitimate and useful, this application is useless, which is why getting it removed is strongly recommended.
Did you download Super PC Cleanup from superpccleanup.com? This is the official download page that the creator of the program has set up. If this is where you got the PUP from, you should not be surprised that its services are not free because along with the Download option you are also introduced to the Purchase option. According to the information available at superpccleanup.com/buynow, the program retails at 59.95 USD, but it is discounted to 39.95 USD. Most likely, this “discount” is permanent, and it is created only to lure users in. If you have not downloaded the application from its website, you probably have downloaded it from a website promoting freeware, and it is most likely that you downloaded it bundled with other programs. Regardless of how the PUP was downloaded, we recommend installing a malware scanner to inspect the system because you do not want to overlook malware that deserves removal. If it does not exist, you will have wasted just a couple of minutes, but you will have peace of mind.
Can Super PC Cleanup work to your benefit? When it scans your operating system and the Registry, it finds certain items that are classified as “issues.” These include “System related errors,” “Com and ActiveX errors,” “User related errors,” and “Startup and Uninstall errors.” According to our research team, some of the items that the PUP finds are actually real, but that does not mean that they are critical or require removal or fixing. If you pay money for Super PC Cleanup, the issues will be resolved, but your system will not start performing in a better manner, which is why paying money for this PUP is not recommended. If you have done that already, you can try to get your money back. In any case, we suggest deleting the program regardless of whether or not you have already paid for its services.Super PC Cleanup screenshot

The removal of Super PC Cleanup is not as straightforward as it might appear to be at first. Although an uninstaller is represented via Control Panel, the PUP is not eliminated completely using this method, which, of course, is very strange. So, how can you delete this undesirable program manually? If you have time and at least a little bit of experience, you can follow the instructions below. If you are not experienced, you can rely on anti-malware software to eliminate all malicious and untrustworthy programs, as well as to protect your operating system automatically. In fact, this is the best option for anyone dealing with any threat or PUP.

In non-techie terms:
Whether you installed Super PC Cleanup from its official download page or it came bundled with other threats that might require removal, scanning the operating system using a trusted malware scanner is the first step you should take. Once you know if or not malware exists, you can move on appropriately. For example, if more serious threats are found, you might choose to address them first. When it comes to deleting Super PC Cleanup, you can either do it manually, or you can install a tool that will do it automatically. While erasing the threat yourself might be useful in regards to experience and skills, installing anti-malware software, of course, is the best option because this software is primarily built to protect operating systems against programs that the user would need to eliminate.
