How To Get Rid of PC Cleaner

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

A program PC Cleaner has attached itself to my Computer
and try as I may I cannot delete it.

Do you have any suggestions?

Appreciate your input.


Dear Cliff,

PC Cleaner is just one of many malware programs that can get into your computer in an attempt to get you to spend money on their software.

Most of these malware programs run fake scans, reporting hundreds of errors that don’t exist on your computer, and then push you to buy their program to get rid of the errors.

The best way to get rid of this program is to go to the Control Panel, click “uninstall a program” and remove it from there.

If that doesn’t work, try booting your computer into safe mode (tap the F8 key while the computer is starting up to get the, “Safe Mode” option.) and try uninstalling it again.
