Universal PC Mechanic

Universal PC Mechanic Description

The Universal PC Mechanic program is promoted as a reliable system optimization tool on smartsystools.com that is "loved by millions." A quick search via Google reveals that Universal PC Mechanic is not as loved as smartsystools.com leads you to believe. The Universal PC Mechanic is said to protect computers and boost their performance. The Universal PC Mechanic program is developed by Pcvark Software Pvt. and claims to remove browser add-ons, obsolete Registry keys and startup entries, which can secure and improve your system's responsiveness and speed. However, these claims are somewhat untrue. Removing browser add-ons can decrease the RAM and processing power required by your Web browser, as well as eliminate the influence of unwanted toolbars and adware-powered extensions. Removing the obsolete Registry keys does not equal improved performance and removing startup entries may ensure Windows boots slightly faster.

The Universal PC Mechanic does not provide active anti-malware shielding, and the only technical support you get is via the support@thesupportmasters.com email. The Universal PC Mechanic is categorized as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), which features a questionable marketing campaign. We have found that its ads load links like h[tt]p://lp.winsystemutils[.]com/alf/?x-context=XXXXX&utm_source=walfmg3&utm_campaign=walfmg3&pxl=WAL2879_WAL2812_RUNT&utm_pubid=XXXXX&x-at=XXXXX&override=1 and present Web surfers with messages that their Windows needs to be repaired. Consequently, users are urged to download the Universal PC Mechanic to find errors and fix them. You might be directed to buy a license for the Universal PC Mechanic via h[tt]p://store.smartsystools[.]com/wsm/price? where the app is sold for 19,95 USD. Tests have revealed that the Universal PC Mechanic produces unreliable scan results and flags temporary Internet files as medium-level dangers to your online security. We do not recommend using the Universal PC Mechanic and suggest seeking alternative instruments. The system optimization features of the Universal PC Mechanic can be ignored if you explore the Settings and Control Panel on Windows after looking up guides on the Internet. Also, we found several clones of the Universal PC Mechanic published by Pcvark Software Pvt. on domains registered to the 184.173.55.157 IP address.
