  1. What is Qbit Clean Pro?The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Qbit Clean Pro is a "system optimizer". These so-called "system optimizers" use intentional false positives to convince users that their systems have problems. Then they try to sell you their software, claiming it will remove these problems.More information can be found on our Malwarebytes Labs blog.How do I know if I am infected with Qbit Clean Pro?This is how the main screen of the system optimizer looks:You will find these icons in your taskbar, your startmenu, and on your desktop:and see these warnings during install:and these screens during "operations":You may see this entry in your list of installed programs:and this task in your list of Scheduled Tasks:How did Qbit Clean Pro get on my computer?These so-called system optimizers use different methods of getting installed. This particular one was downloaded from their website:How do I remove Qbit Clean Pro?Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted application. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. Then click Finish. Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu. If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure. When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected. Restart your computer when prompted to do so. Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of Qbit Clean Pro? No, Malwarebytes removes Qbit Clean Pro completely. This PUP creates a scheduled task. You can read here how to check for and, if necessary, remove Scheduled Tasks. How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me?We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this system optimizer.As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes would have protected you against the Qbit Clean Pro installer. It would have warned you before the application could install itself, giving you a chance to stop it before it became too late. and we block access to their domain: Technical details for expertsYou

  11. What is Speedy SystemCare?The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Speedy SystemCare is a "system optimizer". These so-called "system optimizers" use intentional false positives to convince users that their systems have problems. Then they try to sell you their software, claiming it will remove these problems.More information can be found on our Malwarebytes Labs blog.How do I know if I am infected with Speedy SystemCare?This is how the main screen of the system optimizer looks:You will find these icons in your taskbar, your startmenu, and on your desktop:and see this warning during install:and these screens during "operations":You may see this entry in your list of installed programs:and this task in your list of Scheduled Tasks:How did Speedy SystemCare get on my computer?These so-called system optimizers use different methods of getting installed. This particular one was downloaded from their website:How do I remove Speedy SystemCare?Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted application. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. Then click Finish. Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu. If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure. When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected. Restart your computer when prompted to do so.

  12. What is Power System Care?The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Power System Care is a "system optimizer". These so-called "system optimizers" use intentional false positives to convince users that their systems have problems. Then they try to sell you their software, claiming it will remove these problems.More information can be found on our Malwarebytes Labs blog.How do I know if I am infected with Power System Care?This is how the main screen of the system optimizer looks:You will find these icons in your taskbar, your startmenu, and on your desktop:and see these warnings during install:and this screen during "operations":You may see this entry in your list of installed programs:and this task in your list of Scheduled Tasks:How did Power System Care get on my computer?These so-called system optimizers use different methods of getting installed. This particular one was downloaded from their website:How do I remove Power System Care?Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted application. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. Then click Finish. Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.

  13. What is My Sys Mechanic?The Malwarebytes research team has determined that My Sys Mechanic is a "system optimizer". These so-called "system optimizers" use intentional false positives to convince users that their systems have problems. Then they try to sell you their software, claiming it will remove these problems.More information can be found on our Malwarebytes Labs blog.How do I know if I am infected with My Sys Mechanic?This is how the main screen of the system optimizer looks:You will find these icons in your taskbar, your startmenu, and on your desktop:and see these warnings during install:and these screens during "operations":You may see this entry in your list of installed programs:and this task in your list of Scheduled Tasks:How did My Sys Mechanic get on my computer?These so-called system optimizers use different methods of getting installed. This particular one was downloaded from their website.How do I remove My Sys Mechanic?Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted application. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. Then click Finish. Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu. If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure.

This particular one was downloaded from their website:How do I remove Smart PC Care?Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this potentially unwanted application. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. Then click Finish.
