  1. What is CleanMyPC? The Malwarebytes research team has determined that CleanMyPC is a fake registry cleaner. These so-called "registry cleaners" 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 CleanMyPC? This is how the main screen of the registry cleaning application 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: How did CleanMyPC get on my computer? These so-called registry cleaners use different methods of getting installed. This particular one was downloaded from their website. How do I remove CleanMyPC? 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 CleanMyPC? No, Malwarebytes removes CleanMyPC completely. How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me? We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this registry cleaner. As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes would have protected you against the CleanMyPC 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 their domain.
