How does SlimCleaner Plus work?

As it has already been mentioned, the official page of the application is not the only way you can acquire it.

If you fail to notice them, you agree to their installation unwittingly. That may be how SlimCleaner Plus ended up in your system.

The application is compatible with all Windows systems. Once it gets installed, it creates a registry entry that allows it to start automatically every time you turn on your computer. The main feature of the software is its scanner. It performs a system scan and shows you results claiming that multiple errors have been found on your PC and that you need to fix them as soon as possible. In order to do so, as you may have already guessed, you need to purchase the full version of the utility. It is clear that that was its main goal from the very beginning. You should not trust a product that uses scare tactics in order to persuade computer users into acquiring it. We advise that you delete SlimCleaner Plus from your computer.
