Universal PC Care Fake Optimizer - How to remove

Universal PC Care is a fake system optimization software. According to the reviews by many reliable anti-virus programs and computer security blogs, the application uses intentional false positives in order to persuade users that their systems have got serious problems. This is done in order to convince the people to pay for the so-called licensed version of the program supposedly to fix the above-said problems. However, Universal PC Care is absolutely unable to fix real computer troubles.

Universal PC Care is barely any different from Adroit System Care, Full PC Care 2.0, and other nice-looking but essentially useless PC “optimizers”. They use distribution channels that are very similar to those used by many adware-type applications. Even though the program can be installed through its official landing page, we really doubt that it will be your personal decision to make this software as part of your PC. Therefore, its developers refer to the practice of bundling its installer with many other cost-free programs. Based on these circumstances, Universal PC Care is correctly detected as a PUP (potentially unwanted program) that needs to be immediately deleted.

Universal PC Care – how valuable is it?

As soon as Universal PC Care is installed and activated, it immediately modifies the system settings in order to be started automatically whenever the Windows OS is loaded. The program immediately starts initiating its so-called system analysis. Within a few seconds, the fake report is given about many potentially unwanted items found within the system, for example:

  • items impacting system performance;
  • items impacting system and user-installed software performance;
  • items impacting system startup time and user space.

The developers of Universal PC Care use the above-mentioned terms to make their faulty statements more trustworthy. This is done for the sole goal to convince the users into purchasing the licensed version of the program. When the deceived people click on “Start Repair”, they are automatically brought to the payment processing page. There is nothing wrong in buying the decent software, however, Universal PC Care is simply not the right program. It does not protect the computer from contemporary threats, neither does it fix real stability or performance issues. The only purpose of the program is to bring revenue to its developers and distributors through deception and fraud.

Besides, Universal PC Care wants you to install Advanced Driver Booster — another program that pretends to be useful while trying to scare you into buying it.

How to avoid installation of Universal PC Care?

Your personal role in preventing Universal PC Care from default installation is extremely important. We already mentioned that the program is commonly distributed through bundling with free software. You need to pay very close attention to the EULAs (End User License Agreements) related to free applications you intend to make the part of your computer. Pay attention to the documentation provided in the setup wizards. A good recommendation is that you do not agree with all the default installation options but rather select the “Advanced” or “Custom” installation mode where you may uncheck all the boxes responsible for such additional programs.

Failure to pay attention to important details during the freeware installation results in intrusion of many unwanted or even dangerous programs, including adware-type apps, rogue security programs or even more serious infections. Legit programs do this type of thing, too, but this practice is still very unfriendly to users and deserves to be scrutinized.

How to uninstall Universal PC Care completely?

Universal PC Care provides users with the direct uninstaller. Therefore, you may access the Control Panel and remove this program from the list of available utilities, just as you get rid of other software you no longer need. Considering the fact that this PUP was installed through the bundling method, there is a risk for your PC to be additionally infected with some other malicious software that may be concealed deep in the system. We strongly advise that you check the safety of your system with the reliable anti-malware tool (Spyhunter, Malwarebytes) to make sure your system does not have any hidden malware that may essentially slow down the system performance.
