Daily PC Clean is a legitimate application promising to repair and improve your computer, but due to some malicious traits, malware experts classify it as a PUP (potentially unwanted program). Here’s why.
What Does Daily PC Clean Do?
According to its official website, “Daily PC Clean cleans and put an order in the files that could maybe slow down your computer. That way you improve the speed of your computer.” It also promises to:
- Find and remove potential privacy risks.
- Speed up startup time by removing unnecessary programs.
- Free up disk space by removing leftover junk files.
- Clean up broken shortcuts.
- Review files larger than 10 MB.
In addition, according to malware experts, the program is not flawless and has bugs and errors itself, so you cannot rely on it to fix and improve your computer’s performance either.
