    What is PC Speedup Pro:

    Threat Classification: PUP/adware

    PC Speedup Pro is another dubious and ad-supported application, that claims to improve your system stability, speed and will solve all registry or system errors, however after reviewing it closer, our security researchers have warned us, that the PC Speedup Pro is usually distributed using various software bundles, which are configured to install everything using silent or stealth installation process! That’s the reason why some users don’t even remember to have it installed on their machines! These questionable software bundles could distribute other suspicious and dangerous stuff like 3rd party toolbars, bogus video codecs, rogue anti-virus or system optimization products etc. You should be very careful, because PC Speedup Pro uses this stealth (silent) installation procedure to get on your computer and to start showing sponsor ads, or to collects sensitive information from your computer as well as other private and even financial information. If you have PC Speedup Pro installed on your computer, it is very likely that your screen starts filling with unwanted & very annoying ads, banners pop-up windows or other 3rd party advertisements. PC Speedup Pro 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. PC Speedup Pro 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 PC Speedup Pro 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 PC Speedup Pro”“Ads by PC Speedup Pro”, “PC Speedup Pro Ads”, “Powered by PC Speedup Pro”, “Brought by PC Speedup Pro” or “Brought to you by PC Speedup Pro” – you should consider your computer infected.
