PC Accelerate Pro Image

The PC Accelerate Pro software is developed by Installer Technology Co., is published by DisplayTime Software, and may arrive on your PC via free software packages. The PC Accelerate Pro software is promoted on Pcacceleratepro.com to be a viable alternative to the system tools you can find built-into Windows. The PC Accelerate Pro program may claim to be a powerful system optimization utility that can prevent disk fragmentation and slow performance, as well as delete your traces on the Internet. Many users may be interested in taking advantage of the trial period of two weeks that Installer Technology Co. provides with the PC Accelerate Pro software. However, the behavior of the PC Accelerate Pro program shares many similarities with rogue system managers like Smart PC Cleaner and Windows Accelerator Pro and is perceived as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). The main executable of the PC Accelerate Pro software may be detected as PUP.PC Accelerate Pro and PUP.DisplayTimeSoftware.

The trial period of PC Accelerate Pro allows users to make manual scans and clean their browser cache and search history. Users may perform 'deep scans' with the PC Accelerate Pro software and find hundreds of problems in their Windows Registry that may be repaired with the PRO version of PC Accelerate Pro. Computer experts alert that the PC Accelerate Pro software may not provide accurate information about the problems of your system and show critical error messages to incite you to pay up to $100 for a license that would unlock the PRO functionality. The PC Accelerate Pro program may run as a system driver and be listed in the MSCONFIG tools as a startup service. Contrary to what the PC Accelerate Pro app is advertised to do, it may slow down your PC and make you open your wallet deliberately. Additionally, the PC Accelerate Pro app may perform scans of your running service and prevent you from opening programs for more than five minutes every time you turn on your computer. You should use an anti-spyware tool to delete all files related to the PC Accelerate Pro software and Registry keys it may have left behind.

after downloading a file ive been getting these pop ups of helping with anti-virus stuff, and i've deleted the pop=ups many times and i feel if you have deleted however many you should not be getting them. its been getting pretty annoying to the point that ive tried to disable the application. please change something with this.

Thanks
