Is RegClean Pro A Malware?


RegClean Pro, as what it is pushed to fix your slow PC, eliminate registry errors, does post troubles to PC users:
  • RegClean Pro installs automatically along with some third-party programs, even Firefox.
  • RegClean Pro cannot be removed from Add/Remove Program functionality.
  • Additional applications have been found to install onto the same machine without permission and thus more internal resources are taken up, leading to a poor performing machine.
  • GPS Tablets distributed by ad.directrev.com would prompt up all of a sudden and ask people to download “rcpsetup_matomyil_myil442191.exe”, which is RegClean Pro.
  • Systweak.com pops up randomly to promote RegClean Pro.
  • RegClean Pro registers before PC users can perform any functions to pop up a 'scan' every time when reboot.
  • There’s no proper name inside Control Panel. 
  • Regclean Pro will not fix the detected issue unless a payment is made for the registered version.
Also one of the PC users said that “Regclean had the Microsoft windows logo but they are NOT affiliated nor endorsed by Microsoft”.

Others are:
“After detecting over a thousand registry errors I decided to look into purchasing, but then found out that it does absolutely nothing but harm and isn't even partnered with Microsoft. I can't figure out how to remove it”.

“Regclean Pro states that it can make PC perform faster, but the way I see it, my computer is running so many processes and slower than before.”

So is RegClean Pro a malware, rogue or scam? No, it is none of this. It is a normal program created by the people who want to get money out of it. It can be said that some psychological tactics have been adopted, for example, terrifying.
