Control Center Description

Do not be fooled by the scan reports, warnings and pop-ups displayed by Control Center, they are all fabricated and not to be trusted. Control Center will not only swindle you out of your money, but also greatly affect the operation of your computer system. If encountered on your computer, uninstall Control Center immediately.
