Threat Classification: PUP/adware

Even though that many users might find the features offered by the MPC Cleaner handy and useful, our security consultants and malware researchers warned us, that it has been classified as a PUP by the majority of the security researchers around the World and that it is not a good idea to trust this application and run it as administrator. After running some tests our security team warned us that the users often doesn’t even know how they’ve got the MPC Cleaner on their system. Furthermore, it is known that the optimizer MPC Cleaner is distributed via suspicious software bundles, usually misconfigured to install several questionable programs on user’s computer in silent or stealth mode. Our security experts concluded that the MPC Cleaner is just the next ad-supported malicious program, usually distributed using various dangerous software bundles, that could cause a lot of confusion among the regular users, because they are installed in silent or stealth mode away from the eyes of the regular users! The victims don’t know how did they’ve got the MPC Cleaner on their computer!? These questionable software bundles could distribute even more dangerous stuff like modified installers, bad toolbars, rogue anti-virus products or even crypto viruses.

MPC Cleaner has been classified as a PUP by the majority of the security experts on the Internet, mainly because of the distribution method it uses – “software bundling” and because of its suspicious behavior on the user’s computer. MPC Cleaner uses a malicious browser extension, that is capable of injecting ads into almost every webpage you visit, which could lead to modifying the web page design and content – especially regarding the search results by the major web search engines! Once installed, the MPC Cleaner quickly modifies windows registry database and browser’s settings, making the recovery even harder. If you start getting various web ads, claiming that they are – “By MPC Cleaner”“Ads by MPC Cleaner”, “MPC Cleaner Ads”, “Powered by MPC Cleaner”, “Brought by MPC Cleaner” or “Brought to you by MPC Cleaner” – you should consider your computer infected. MPC Cleaner appears to work with all the well-known browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

MPC Cleaner is usually bundled with some other free ad-supported software products and is being installed by default, when the user accepts the EULA, while performing an express/recommended installation of that software bundle. The possible distribution of MPC Cleaner varies but is not limited to – installing third-party toolbars, free software products, video editing software, codecs, downloading e-mail attachments, clicking on ads or banners etc..

The main purpose of MPC Cleaner is to generate as much traffic as possible to certain domains, which could easily be monetized via one of the many online marketing platforms. Please note, that the creators of such or similar adware or malware would collect information that might be used to track your browsing habits, however often they collect much more then your web search history.

    If you do not have a better way, it is more practical to delete the folder
    c: \ program files \ MPC Cleaner
    With command “rmdir”. But this is not easy.
    With inside windows or F8 and start repairing their tools, or in safe mode or msdos command line, nothing seems to work, because they always “access denied” is obtained
    For Windows7, how to delete the folder is the Windows Recovery CD obtained on a clean computer.
    The CD starts and in “Command Line Mode”, perfectly erases the folder where all files, programs and services MPC Cleaner.
    With the command “attrib” you can remove attributes “read only” in the files if necessary.
    It’s a dirty uninstallation, because data remains in registry, services, etc … but do not affect to the computer, which functions as normal, with no interference from MPC Cleaner.

    The folder is c\program files \MPC Cleaner

  3. enrique /

    I can not write well that the folder is
    that of 32-bit programs.
    c: \ Program Files x86 \ MPC Cleaner

  4. enrique /

    With that, and resetting the browser and eliminating
    automatic start programs related, if any, should send MPC Cleaner “to the story.”
