PC Cleaner is spyware that acts as if it's going to rid your computer of a spyware infection. When your computer is infected by malware, a screen may pop up to prompt you to buy a malware remover, but you're really being tricked into paying for a program that will add to the problem. PC Cleaner is one of these malware programs. Once it's downloaded, you will receive annoying pop-ups; your system may become sluggish as the program simulates a worse infection than is actually there. To rid yourself of PC Cleaner, you'll have to delete the application and all of the registry entries the program created. Once you've done that, PC Cleaner--and the plague of pop-ups that comes with it--will be gone.
