A common technique for enabling Trojan viruses to enter the systems of their victims unnoticed is by adding them to a free program/app that doesn’t initially seem dangerous. If you have recently installed any new programs on your PC especially if they were free and/or downloaded from a potentially unreliable source, it is highly likely that such a program may have brought the Trojan into your system.
For these reasons, the first thing you need to do is open the Start Menu and go to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features. There, look at the programs and pay special attention to the ones with an installation date near the arrival of the virus (just before you started seeing Client Pc Speedup symptoms). If you see anything that you suspect of being linked to Client Pc Speedup, click on it, select Uninstall from the top of the window, and complete whatever steps the uninstallation manager shows you. Also, remember to not allow anything from the potentially unwanted/rogue program (including personalized settings) to be left in the system once the uninstallation completes.
WARNING! READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING!

For this next step, you must go into the Task Manager – search for it in the Start Menu search bar and open it when it appears in the search results. Then access the Processes tab and sort the items in it by CPU consumption or memory consumption since the malware process will probably be using high amounts of both of those resources.
Next, look at the entries listed at the top and try to figure out if any of them looks odd, suspicious, or unfamiliar to you. If there’s an entry that fits this description, see what information you can find about it on the Internet and if other users and/or security researchers have said that the process may be threatening, right-click it in the Task Manager, click on the first option (the File Location one), and, in the newly-opened folder, scan each file using this free online malware scanner:
Even if only one file is found to be malicious, this means that the process must be stopped so return to it, right-click it again, and quit it by selecting the End Process option.
After that, delete everything in its Location Folder or at least as many files as you are allowed to. If you weren’t able to delete everything now, return later, once you’ve gone through the rest of the steps, and delete the entire file location folder.
Note: If you’ve found reliable information on the Internet that states the questionable process in the Task Manager is indeed a malware process, you must delete its data and quit it even if no malicious code was detected in the process’ files.
Prevent the Client Pc Speedup virus from starting its processes all over again by booting your computer into Safe Mode – instructions that will help you enter Safe Mode can be found on the linked page.
Go to the Start Menu again, write Run in the search field, open the first item, and paste in it this line: %windir%/system32/Drivers/etc/hosts.
Next, click on OK to go to the Hosts file of your computer. If you get asked to pick a program that will start the file, select the Notepad app.
In the Hosts file, look at the text towards the end of the file – if anything is written below the “Localhost” line, you must copy it and send it to our team by writing us a comment with the copied text. Once someone has a look at the comment, you will receive a reply to your comment in which you will be told if what’s after “Localhost” is from the malware and if it needs to be deleted.
Use the Run window to go to the System Configuration window by typing msconfig in it and hitting Enter. Explore the items shown in the Startup tab in System Configuration and if any of the entries appear to be suspicious or are unknown to you, disable them by unchecking them and then pressing OK.
The third thing you must type in the Run window is ncpa.cpl. Click OK after you type it and then right-click on the network icon that doesn’t have an X – this is the network you machine is connected to at the moment. Open Properties, select the Internet Protocol Version 4 item from the list, and click on the next Properties button.
In the next window, make sure that both of the settings shown below are enabled and then go to Advanced.
- Obtain an IP address automatically
- Obtain DNS server automatically
In Advanced, select the DNS section and see if there are any IPs listed in it. If you see any IPs there, click on them and then click Remove to delete them. After that, select OK on the current window and all other open windows.
Warning!: To complete this step, you will have to delete any malicious items that the virus may have created in your system’s Registry. However, you must be really careful not to delete regular system items or else you may cause damage to the computer. When in doubt about a certain item, it’s best to ask us about it rather than outright deleting it.
Now, to start the Registry Editor, type regedit in the Start Menu, hit the Enter key, and select Yes in the dialogue window may pop up in order to provide your Admin permission to start the Registry Editor and allow it to make changes in the system.
Once in the Editor, press Ctrl and F to evoke its search box, type Client Pc Speedup in the latter, and perform the search. Even if there are multiple items that match this search, you will only be shown the first one. Delete that first found item and do the search again to see if there are others. In this way, make sure that all items related to Client Pc Speedup are deleted.
You should now visit the following Registry locations – you can find them in the left panel of the Editor (by expanding the various folders).
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Random Directory.
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main
Look for items with long names comprising letters and numbers that seem randomized. For example, if you come across an item with a name similar to this: “049ug0e09w3t29ty0fua093jwrgtjq“, you should probably remove it from the Registry.
Finally, if the steps we’ve shown on this page didn’t help with the Client Pc Speedup removal, and you are still noticing Trojan Horse symptoms, it would be best if you try deleting the virus with a specialized removal tool. Trojans are often able to entrench themselves very deep inside the attacked systems and removing them manually could be rather challenging even for cybersecurity experts. On the other hand, a reliable and powerful anti-malware tool, like the one we’ve posted on this page, can run a deep scan of the system, find every last bit of malicious data, and quickly delete it, while also ensuring that the virus isn’t allowed to return to bother you.
For those reasons, we believe that, if none of the previous removal methods have worked, the best course of action for you would be to try out the recommended malware-removal tool from this page and clean your system with its help.
