This page aims to help with the uninstall of the Super PC Cleaner “Virus” and its launch, and answer users what it is and how it operates.
What is the Super PC Cleaner “Virus”?
Super PC Cleaner describes itself as a Windows optimizer program, which can keep your PC clean and tidy. However, there are numerous reports that it also clutters your system with other software you may know little about. This includes adware and freely promoted freeware, which can sometimes include malware. For this reason well-known security vendors have labeled Super PC Cleaner a threat and have added it to their removal lists. This classifies Super PC Cleaner as a PUP – short for Potentially Unwanted Program. This means that although the program is not one of the higher class-threats, it may lead you to one or its marketing techniques are exposed enough to lead you to one.
These marketing techniques include collecting browsing behavior and other types of personal information, cookies, and most notably – helping adware get in your system. Adware are counter-productive to the primary goal the program claims to aspire to – they clutter your PC and riddle it with advertisements and redirects to websites which are not always safe.

Undoubtedly, intrusive online are something no one likes. They obstruct your regular browsing activity and heavily reduce the overall quality of your online experience. Unfortunately, they are everywhere. It’s just that the online marketing industry is huge and there’s a lot of money involved in it. Therefore, almost all developers are doing their best to integrate adverts wherever they can, so as to gain more money. Still, no one really forces you to go on sites or use software that has ads. It is up to you to choose whether what you get is worth the frustration from the advertising materials. However, there’s another type of online adverts that do not come from the sites that you visit. Instead, those pop-ups, banners and box messages are generated by your own PC and tend to show up in every browser (Firefox, Chrome, IE, etc.) and browser tab you open, regardless of the actual page you’re on.

How you’ve landed it
One last thing that we need to inform you about is how exactly this type of programs gets to your PC. Know that being aware of the different distribution methods for this sort of unwanted software can really save you a lot of time and money that you would otherwise spend on trying to get rid of it. There are a few commonly employed methods when it comes to spreading Super PC Cleaner. So far the most frequent ones have been spam e-mails, contaminated torrent files or shady/deceptive links throughout sites with questionable content. Still, the method that probably landed you the nagging program is known as file bundling. Such bundles are basically a program installer that, apart from the main program it is supposed to install, also holds a number of other pieces of software. The reason why this method is so effective is because users usually rush for the default setup option, which gets them all added content along the main program. To prevent this, all you need to do is make use of the custom/advanced option. In there, you can choose which add-on to install and which to leave out of the installation. After you’ve unchecked everything that seems potentially unwanted, you can continue with the installation.
