Windows Cleaner Removal Guide

Do you know what Windows Cleaner is?

Windows Cleaner is a potentially unwanted program that is promoted as computer optimization tool. Its publishers say that Windows Cleaner can detect various errors via its “deep scan”, and it can improve your Windows registry by deleting redundant files. The problem, however, is that Windows Cleaner cannot do anything unless you purchase the full version of the program. And even so, it is not guaranteed that the application will work well. Hence, users are recommended to remove Windows Cleaner from their computers because the application could cause some problems.

It is very often that various computer optimization applications have a free trial. This way, users can check whether the program in question is compatible with their needs. Nevertheless, Windows Cleaner’s free trial cannot fix anything. On top of that the official installer that can be downloaded at is not clean. Our research team suggests that this program cannot be trusted – it is too shady to be good. Not to mention that if you perform a full system scan with Windows Cleaner, you will be presented with only partly legitimate results. It means that some of the errors indicated on the scan results will not be real.Windows Cleaner Removal GuideWindows Cleaner screenshot

Thus, it is clear why computer users worldwide complain about Windows Cleaner, giving the program poor reviews. If that were not enough, this program might also travel bundled with freeware. Therefore, you might install Windows Cleaner on your computer accidentally without even meaning to. The programs that are known to distribute Windows Cleaner are BetterMarkIt and Spigot Toolbar. Both of them are potentially unwanted applications as well, so if you have at least one of them on your computer, chances are that you have a few more as well.

If you need to improve your computer performance, we strongly recommend you look for another optimization tool. If you purchase an annual Windows Cleaner license, you might only spend your money for nothing because such system optimization tools are nothing but empty shells, devised to trick users into giving away their money for a product that cannot deliver.

On the other hand, Windows Cleaner is not a computer virus, and it is not a dangerous infection. Thus, there is no need to panic if you find this application on your PC. All you have to do is uninstall Windows Cleaner via Control Panel, and then invest in a reliable computer security application that would help you terminate any remaining unwanted files and applications.
