In the case of Win PC Repair 2018, this program is unlikely to actually have any significant effect on the way your machine operates. Deleting registry keys and redundant data doesn’t really do all that much. Also, deleting files you might not need is something that you could easily do manually in the majority of cases. Furthermore, it is generally inadvisable to allow third-party software to tinker with your PC’s Registry as sometimes, if some important key gets deleted or modified, there are various issues that could arise from that.

One other thing to mention with regards to Win PC Repair 2018 is that it requires you to pay a certain amount of money to actually use the program. If you only have the free version, you’d only be getting nagging prompts to buy the full one. Supposedly, the free version of the program is a scanner that detects issues on your PC and notifies you about them but the problem is that oftentimes the said issues might be heavily exaggerated during the report with the purpose of making it more likely for you to buy the full program in order to have the said issues solved. Furthermore, it is even possible that there aren’t any actual issues with your PC and the reports from Win PC Repair 2018 are false positives generate as a form of aggressive advertising for the full version of the program. All in all, a pretty sneaky technique for promoting the paid version which is yet another reason why most users and security experts regard this software tool as potentially unwanted.

Distribution of potentially unwanted programs like Win PC Repair 2018

File bundling is probably the most common and the most successful technique for sneakily distributing such programs. With this method, the undesirable software piece is added to a program installer of another program that’s typically free or cheap. The added app is enabled by default in the installation manager and is typically hidden under the Manual/Advanced setup menu where one could uncheck it and thus leave it out of the installation process. Of course, most users forget to do that and this is how they land such undesirable apps on their computers. You, however, now that you are aware of this sneaky scheme, should always remember to customize the installation configuration of new program you want to install before you install them by accessing the Advanced/Manual setup options and unchecking any bundled software components that may seem undesirable or simply unneeded.
