Do you know what Wscanner is?
Wscanner is an application that should boost the speed of computers and clean systems in the blink of an eye. If you visit its official website, you will even notice that it claims to be a “health doctor for your PC.” Many users believe that the application is going to act in a useful way and thus download it from wscanner.com. It is known that this program is available for download on other third-party web pages or might simply enter systems with the help of other not the most reliable programs too. Actually, it does not really matter which version you have installed on your computer because all of them are not very trustworthy. If you wish to use only 100% reliable software, you need to remove this potentially unwanted program (PUP) and find another more trustworthy PC optimizer and cleaner. Information about the removal of unreliable software will be provided in the last paragraph, but you should still read the entire article attentively.
Wscanner will immediately start after you install it on your system and scan your PC. It says that it will find all issues and fix them in order to boost the speed of your PC. The application will really show you the number of errors; however, these scan results cannot be trusted 100% because this scanner detects and shows temporary files and empty registry entries too, which are harmless. What is more, the program will not fix any errors unless a user upgrades it, i.e. buys the license. This product of JS Web Production seems to be quite decent at first sight; however, we suggest that you acquire another PC optimizer if you want to be sure that you use 100% reliable software. If you decide not to pay money for the license, you should delete Wscanner fully because it will perform activities behind your back day after day.Wscanner screenshot

You should be very careful because there are hundreds of other PC optimization tools that belong to the category of potentially unwanted programs, e.g. FixPCOptimizer, YourOptimizer, OnePCOptimizer, and System Optimizer. It is known that these programs are spread in the same way as Wscanner, i.e. they can be downloaded from their web pages, but they might also be spread in software bundles, so it would be best to take care of the system’s safety in advance. If you cannot explain how Wscanner has slithered onto your PC, it is very likely that it has done that rather secretly. This also means that other untrustworthy programs might have been installed on the system too. Detect them and eliminate them all too.
Wscanner can be removed from the system via Control Panel; however, it leaves junk files on the system. If you do not remove the program fully, it might start with Windows again and work behind your back. Do not worry; below the article you will find instructions that will help you to erase those leftovers. You can also use an automatic malware remover, e.g. SpyHunter for this matter.

You can use an automatic tool, or you can detect those suspicious programs yourself and then delete them all manually. Of course, the manual method is suitable for highly experienced users only.
