RegProtech Removal Guide

Do you know what RegProtech is?

Have you recently found RegProtech installed on your operating system, and you have no idea what this program is or where it came from? The chances are that it was installed a while ago, and you simply just now came across it. Of course, if you remember downloading it recently, this article applies to you as well. Basically, this application is a PUP (potentially unwanted program), and it was created to push Windows users into paying money for services that are practically useless. Although it is represented as a system optimizer, it is just another unreliable tool that you cannot benefit from. Unfortunately, the creator can because the services of PUP cost money. We cannot say whether or not the developer managed to garner a profit, but we can say that paying for the offered services is a waste of money. We recommend deleting RegProtech instead of investing in it.

RegProtech is very similar to Speedy PC Pro 2018, LightSpeedPC, Win Boost Pro 2018, Advance PC Protector, and hundreds of other system optimizers that promise a great deal of things. RegProtech, for example, promises to remove malware, enhance the system, and protect you. It cannot do any of that. Nonetheless, the promises can fool less experienced users, who, in the past, could download the PUP from The website has been taken down since then. Are third-party installers spreading the PUP? They could have done that in the past. If you believe that you downloaded the PUP from an unreliable source along with malware, scan your operating system immediately to check if you need to delete threats that are much more dangerous than the fake system optimizer.

Although we know that RegProtech is not reliable, its interface is believable and even professional-looking, and so users could have been tricked into thinking that it is legitimate. The power of this PUP lies in the scanner that finds bogus issues and threats to make the user panic. According to our malware researchers, the PUP cannot find anything but false positives, which means that harmless files could be introduced to users as threats. Even if the scanner finds temp files or empty registry entries that you could remove to clear space, you definitely do not need to pay money to have that space cleared. If you are willing to invest in software that could help, choose a program that could offer you beneficial services. RegProtech cannot do that.

If you decide to remove RegProtech by uninstalling this app, you have to install a malware scanner to examine your system because you do not want to overlook leftovers. We suggest using a scanner if you follow the steps shown below too. Obviously, if other PUPs or even threats exist, you need to treat them separately. Alternatively, you could install anti-malware software that could uncover and delete all threats at once. While this software can alleviate the removal process, the most important reason to install it is the protection it provides. Keep in mind that if your system remains unprotected, malicious threats could invade it again and again, and, next time, you could face something much more dangerous and malicious, like ransomware or a data-stealing Trojan.

In non-techie terms:

Do not be fooled by the pretty promises of RegProtech, an alleged system optimizer that cannot help you one bit. Even if it removes components that could free up space on your system – which is unlikely to happen – this service is not worth the money. Maybe that is why the PUP is no longer available for download. Nonetheless, if it is still active on your system, we suggest deleting it. Even if you have paid for the full version, you should remove RegProtech without any hesitation. You also need to consider what you want to do with other unreliable programs or even malicious threats that could exist on your PC, which you can confirm using a malware scanner. If other threats do not exist, go ahead and follow the guide above; just remember that your system remains unprotected. Otherwise, install anti-malware software and leave it up to it to clear and secure your system.
