How to remove MPC Cleaner
Having MPC Cleaner on your personal computer has no advantages. Even though the official page of the application claims otherwise, the PUP (potentially unwanted program) can actually do a lot of harm. MPC actually stands for More Powerful Cleaner, hinting the supposed purpose of the program. This application is claimed to clean your PC from all kinds of files and software that slow down the capacity of the system.
Also, it should fix all the problems that impede your work. Unfortunately, it does not work that way. If you have already downloaded the program, you have to remove MPC Cleaner right away. It will not make your PC performance any better: actually, it can make matters worse.
Why is MPC Cleaner dangerous?
The program can be considered threatening due to a lot of its features. Firstly, it just takes up space on your computer because it is not useful. The scans it does are not worth your attention: it does not eliminate the files that are harmful. It only terminates empty registries and junk files that do not impede the capacity of the system. In other words, nothing beneficial is achieved. Secondly, after the scan, the PUP begins doing some harmful activities. It can, for example, start downloading other potentially unwanted programs onto your computer. This is just disturbing because you are not warned about this: the PC can be filled with useless applications without your consent! In addition, not only PUP, but also malware can sneak into the system because of the Cleaner. For this reason, your device might become slower than usual and this can be rather frustrating. Moreover, if you do not uninstall MPC Cleaner soon enough, your sensitive information may be stolen. That is because the program is made to spy on you by collecting non-personally identifiable information. Of course, even some personal info might slip away. The data is later sold to hackers or other criminals and used for bad purposes.
