In my opinion PC Cleaner Pro is a bit of a clever scam. I clicked on the offer for a “free” scan and voila, PC Cleaner came up with 1,389 problems on my PC that need fixing. (Actually, my computer runs fine regardless of all these “problems.”) All I had to do then was buy their software, and those problems would be “fixed”. I opted out of this new variation on the old bait and switch. Problem is, without asking, PC Cleaner Pro installed some sticky software on my computer that I can’t get rid of. When I turn my computer on, a large dialogue box pops up to tell me I’ve got problems, and I need to hit the “fix all” button. Oh, and remember, you have to buy the software to have access to that “fix all” button. I haven’t found a way yet to delete or move that box.
I tried the “uninstall” approach to try to get this junk off my computer. However, a box then appeared asking “Are you sure you want to uninstall PC Cleaner Pro from your computer?” You can’t get rid of this box either, and it stops the “uninstall” process. If you go back and re-try the “uninstall” command, a dialogue box pops up that syas “Please wait while the current program is being uninstalled or changed.” It’s like waiting for Godot.
The brilliant folks at PC Cleaner Pro do give you a way out. So I called the number that was conveniently provided (855.881.1343), and I got some dude in New Delhi, India. He had the solution. I just had to go to a WWW address and log on, so this friendly New Delhian could take control of my computer. Oh, I was really about to do that. It was a lively conversation which quickly deteriorated.
If you have any suggestions about how to remove the PC Cleaner Pro stuff before I start my campaign to advise the Internet to avoid this product like the plague, I would appreciate your letting me know.
