RegClean Pro (developed by Systweak Inc.) is considered a potentially unwanted program (PUP) in the scareware category by several legitimate security products. RegClean Pro software is promoted as an unregistered (free) and registered (full) Microsoft Windows Cleaner and Optimizer tool; however, RegClean is may be considered non-beneficial.
RegClean may claim that a computer system has a large amount of errors found including shared DLLs, application paths, MRU lists, and others after the product performs a scan. RegClean will then claim to fix a large quantity of errors, but then states that a small amount of errors can not be completely repaired unless the user purchases the full product.
RegClean-Pro and associated parties that the program often bundles with may also collect and share user information manually submitted online while the program is installed or information submitted to the initial party and involved third-parties, as well as what they describe as anonymous usage information (anonymous information can still be used to identify a person or make communications).
In the short time that RegClean and similar software has been active the company has accumulated many complaints filed with the BBB stating advertising/sales issues, delivery issues, guarantee/warranty issues, and problems with product/service.
