What is Master PC Cleaner?

Master PC Cleaner (also searched for as Master PC Cleaner virus) is recognized as a potentially unwanted program (or PUP), ad-loader, and trojan by reputable Antivirus programs. Master PC Cleaner is promoted as a Security Suite that “scans Windows for Malware/Pup Threats, System/User Software Issues, and Startup/Uninstall Issues.”

Once Master PC Cleaner is installed it will scan the computer. The results of the scan will suggest that the program has detected a variety of issues; However, the severity of the issues it finds are misleading. For example, it will list legitimate and safe registry files as a threat. The program will label the issues under different levels of severity from severe to critical. In order to fix the issues detected by the program, you must purchase the program.

To make matters worse, the Master PC Cleaner PUP is usually advertised on websites that also bolster malware, adware, spyware, computer viruses, and other malicious threats. Websites that contain prohibited content such as illegal video streams, torrents, and pornography will utilize unethical adverting networks that will promote this program and other threats at the same time. This means that if you found Master PC Cleaner installed on your computer without your knowledge, it is likely that your computer is also infected with other unwanted programs, malware, and major security threats that should be removed.
