Of course, Junk Cleaner is not a very harmful program; however, our specialists have found out that it is useless. It means that it will not help you to accelerate booting or shutting down, it will definitely not stop frequent PC crashes and freezes, and it will not delete any junk files. Of course, there is a possibility that it will start working if you call (1866)606-9133 and buy the license as it asks. Actually, we do not think that you should spend money on such a suspicious program because it is unclear whether it is going to act beneficially after the upgrade. If you are not going to activate Junk Cleaner or if it simply has appeared on your system without your permission, make sure that you remove this PUP as soon as possible.

Junk Cleaner is not only useless, but it has several drawbacks. First of all, it has been found out that this program can start with Windows every time. In addition, it will show warning messages in order to convince you to call the given number. You should not do that because it might be a premium-rate number. As can be seen, unreliable tools might really act in an annoying way. If you want to prevent similar untrustworthy optimization tools from entering your system, you have to install a security tool.

It is possible to remove Junk Cleaner via Control Panel. Use our manual removal instructions if you are not 100% sure how to do that. You can, of course, leave all the work for a trustworthy antimalware tool as well.
