PC Clean Pro makes everything possible to make more and more PC owners think their computers are infected with a severe computer virus, and users need to buy the bogus application to remove the attacker. However, the truth is that PC Clean Pro is just another scam application which is aimed at taking your money. PC Clean Pro is not able to detect real computer threats.

Security specialists say that this malicious infection is also known as PC CleanerPro and PCCleanerPro. The attacker uses vulnerabilities in running programs to penetrate into a targeted machine. Another way of gaining access to a PC is through the use of fake online scans. People are offered a free system scan. However, the final results of the scan claim that there are many compromised files on the PC and to solve the problems, the user has to download some file. Nevertheless, the user does not suspect that he will become the next victim of PC Clean Pro if the file is downloaded. This is how PC Clean Pro is spread and enters targeted system.

After PC Clean Pro has penetrated into a PC, it is ready to start its fraudulent plan. PC Clean Pro fake AV tool will start displaying annoying messages. All of them will warn the user about numerous system problems and errors. The intruder will warn the user that these system errors may have fatal consequences and lead to a serious system crash. The messages will inform about the following problems:

PC Clean Pro has detected 487 unwanted and compromising items on your computer.
These items are very likely to jeopardize your privacy. You must clean your PC now.

Another trick used by PC Clean Pro is the fake system scan it makes. PC Clean Pro will pretend to scan your system and then it will let you know about many compromised files. PC Clean Pro will try to convince you that you have to remove the files immediately. Otherwise, you may lose the information saved on your PC. The truth is that even if you try to delete the files, you will not be allowed to do that. PC Clean Pro will claim that the only way to remove the infected files is with the help of the full version of the fake tool. PC Clean Pro wants to make you pay for its services and scare you into submitting your personal and financial data to its creators.

PC Clean Pro will take you to its web page, and it will try to make you pay for its useless services. However, if you have a closer look at the site, you will see that it does not provide almost any information about the creators of the program and the services it provides. There is a detailed billing form, but there are no contact details. The page is unknown and it cannot be classified as a reliable and safe site.

In fact, none of the messages displayed by PC Clean Pro show reliable information. PC Clean Pro pretends to have detected many infected files, but the truth is that these files are created by the malicious attacker itself. Do not disclose your personal or bank account details to the attacker and make sure that you remove the program as soon as possible.
