RegClean Pro - How to remove?

 

Regclean Pro is a registry optimization program from SysTweak. It is an old and legitimate company, however we have issues with how this registry cleaner is distributed and promoted. Regclean Pro promotion methods are similar to rogue products sometimes, though the likely cause is partners of SysTweak rather than the company itself.

Regclean Pro is installed together with software bundles that are malware on itself. We have seen it being distributed with hijackers and even trojans that are disguised as “movie” downloaders that “fail” after installing all the offers. This is an illegitimate promotion tactics. While in most cases one can decline offers, the refusal button is not obvious and might be hidden sometimes. Thus it is not surprising that many of PC users think that Regclean installs on its own.

Additionally, Regclean Pro might install other programs developed by Systweak without your confirmation. I was assured, that this is not possible but my tests have shown that if Regclean is installed from a software bundle, you will not be asked for a separate confirmation for Advanced System Protector (their malware cleaner) to be installed. The latter tool after performing a system scan detects parts of the original bundle (from which it was installed) and you are asked for money in order to remove part of the original installation.

Update (2014). Although RegClean Pro may be uninstalled normally, it offers 2 Uninstall buttons. The bigger one instead of simply removing the unwanted tool will install additional Systweak bloatware (including software, advertising company’s support). Thus one should take care while uninstalling this unwanted application and choose carefully which button to press on.

At the moment I suggest not using RegClean Pro, especially if you haven’t installed it yourself from the original website. You should scan your PC with anti-malware programs to detect and remove possible trojans that distribute this PUP. Malwarebytes, Spyhunter, hitman would be the best solution.

Additionally, there are multiple parasites with a similar name to Regclean Pro, for example Regclean 2008. These parasites show many false registry errors and force you into buying full versions. These programs should be removed at once.

Manual RegClean Pro removal

 

Important Note: Although it is possible to manually remove RegClean Pro, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend using Spyhunter or other tools found on 2-viruses.com.

    I had a pop up every once in a while which advertised Reg Clean Pro and did a free scan but when I tried the free scan, it would not fix many problems if any and told me that I would have to buy the service if I wanted it. I tried to find it on control panel of software programs to remove but could not find it. When I called the number on the ad, I talked to someone who got into my computer and showed me hundreds of errors which he said could only be fixed by a certified Microsoft engineer. I said I usually call Microsoft and they charge me $49 per problem. He said they could not help me only he could help me and he charged me $350 for a two year program to do first a 3 way clean and a 5 way repair. He said I could use their service for 2 years once a month for a check up or call them any time toll free 877340 9240. I dealt with Ankur Khemani. Some one is cleaning my computer now from India. Have I been scammed? Ankur walked me through my pay pal account after I gave him my master card and he wanted me to run it through pay pal with him on my computer watching me. I could not remember my pay pal pass word so he just ran through my charge for the $350. First he said $199 for one year and when I agreed, he said for 2 years it would be $350. When I agreed he said later on if I wanted 3 years and I said no.

      Well, it is a bit grey-zone. First, most of errors registry cleaners detect are grey-zone. They are not harmful, they do not cause large (or any) speed loss and so on. And, in case of real problems, Microsoft engineers can fix them for sure.
      So, I would say they lied to you a bit. The most of registry scanners are trying to scare you into using them :)
      Now it is impossible to tell what errors there were on your PC. There might have been real problems, there might have been exaggerated problems. For me it is not worth 199$/year. I would suggest sticking to using decent internet security suite, scanning with CCleaner (which is free) for registry errors, and, in case of something bad happening, using Microsoft or someone on Crossloop to fix particular problem for fee, or searching for solution on web. I would say it is a bit cheaper :)

    notice that some software technologic instances are virus pumpers. Why REG CLEAN PRO which I experienced being a virus pumper is allowed to pop up on people’s PC. and it is difficult to stop that. Where’s people privacy and security? Lots of the software sellers play this game with ordinary people to rob them. Where’s the justice instances specially in USA.?

    hi, i am not a computer expert. i have not purchased anything, but everytime i open up my computer i get this same reg-pro message telling me i have 720 errors. i am not going to purchase anything. my computer is fine. in fact, the only annoying this is this 5 min scan (that i cannot close or stop) that happens every time i start up my computer. i cannot find any reg-pro software on my computer. how can i stop wasting 5 mins every time i turn my computer on for this bogus reg-pro scan telling my to buy their product to fix these 720 odd errors ?

    Jeg får dette opp hver gang jeg slår på min datamaskin. Har betalt inn 239 kroner med mitt kredittkort, men fremdeles kommer det opp med 653 feil. Trodde det var seriøst, siden det var samarbeid med Microsoft. Vennligst fjern det.

    My daughter installed this so called RegProCleaner on her Acer Notebook. This virus disguises itself as a normal operating program, so most virus and malware checkers do not pick this up. Steps I took to get rid of this program completely are as follows. Start – Run – type in “msconfig” (no quotes) GO TO START UP TAB AND uncheck the listing for “RegCleanPro” then ok and close. –
    Then go to – Start – Run – type in regedit. From edit on top of toolbar click find and type in “regclean” and any entry you find right click and delete. F3 to find next. then search for “systweak” and right click and delete the whole folder with that name in it. F3 to find next. Close Regedit. – Then go to c:\ folder (main computer folder) and do a search for “regclean” and any entry found delete it. It should also find an entry in the windows “scheduled tasks” PROGRAM. Delete all of the entries for RegCleanPro. Restart in safe mode, reboot your computer in safe mode(hold down F8 on start up)with command prompt. type in “del c:\windows\system\ime\*.*” without the quotes. (there is 3 folders that contain the program that you are deleting) From the MyComputer icon right click and properties – Restore – check turn off restore (this is so your computer does not back up this program) and do not forget to empty your recycle bin. Restart your computer. Then from the instructions above uncheck turn off restore and restart again.

    If Reg Clean Pro does not clear this off my computer promptly they will be dealing with the RCMP Antifraud people as I have advised that I got this due to Explorer 8 Update that I required and found out Avon has their own for free and these people used the bait and switch approach saying free then want monies. I am not paying for something that I can get from Avon for free and if this is not corrected promptly you will be in a lot of trouble as I have had a lot of expense fixing my laptop and if this keeps up you will be paying all the bills I am incurring plus replacing laptop if this crashes because of you. I am not fooling around anymore with you people. Enough is enough. I cannot work on my computer anymore and this is costing me monies everytime you decide to play games with me while I am working. When they get their hands on you for doing this to me you will be put through the fullest extent of the law and may face jail time in addition to fixing or replacing my laptop. Get this fixed and off my laptop or else I’m coming after you legally.

    P.S. You are playing with fire here if you think that I am going to put up with this. You are costing me daily and bill getting higher every day. See you in court and if you like dealing with the crown you will find out how they deal with things of this nature!

    I have been plagued by the RegCleanPro too and could not get rid of it. I tried the above proposed system from William Sparka, but it did not find the R-C-P program in my computer. Then I went to eHow and used their system. It seems to be working!! I am still holding my breath!

    This product made my laptop go exceedingly slow after installation, and I would not recommend it for anyone. It is a rip off. Now I have to take my laptop to the pc doc, which I should have done in the first place. The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

      Well, Don, Regclean Pro is distributed with some crapware that can slow down pc considerably in some cases. Especially as they push their own “antivirus”, which might cause such symptoms if you have working one.

    Oh my …
    I also installed that nasty program and experienced the same problems as you guys.
    It’s so confusing.
    However, I’m glad I found this website and have read the troubles of so many others.
    Now I’ll try to follow some of the solutions described above and hope to get back to normal.

      You could try to uninstall them by rebooting into Safe mode and running control panel -> Uninstall programs.

    So I uninstalled all the programs… But! I keep getting that pop-up saying it’s scanning my computer. It’s uninstalled and it’s not showing up in my programs or anything. How do I fully get it off my computer? Please help =/ no where around can tell me how…

      Depends on kind of popup. Activate it, and then press ctrl+shift+esc. Task manager will appear. If there is regclean process (sort by alphabet processes), then you failed to uninstall, and you have to reboot, try again or run revouninstaller (Free) or anti-malware programs.
      If it is not under the processes, then you got other malware or browser got hijacked. Run Spyhunter, Hitman pro.
