Many researchers classify UPCleaner as a potentially unwanted program because it might display pop-ups and other ads on the desktop. It has been noticed that these ads promote different products and services (e.g. dating agency). They might be closely related to the content you access on the web, so it might seem that these ads are provided for you personally. Actually, it is not exactly true because the program simply records some details about you and provides you with relevant content. We do not recommend clicking on any of those ads because they might simply take you to untrustworthy websites. As can be seen, UPCleaner itself is not dangerous. In fact, it might really boost your PC’s performance; however, it cannot be fully trusted.

According to our researchers, UPCleaner usually travels bundled with advertising-supported applications. It means that it might enter your system without your direct permission and adware might be installed alongside it. If you have never encountered adware, you should know that these programs generate and display commercial advertisements. Since they do not do anything good, it is advisable to remove them as soon as possible. Actually, adware might not be the only undesirable software installed on your computer, so you should scan your system with a diagnostic tool or at least check Control Panel.

We suggest that you remove UPCleaner from your system, but it does not mean that you cannot keep it installed. If you still decide to remove this potentially unwanted program, you should use our manual removal instructions (see below).
