Cloud System Care removal instructions
What is Cloud System Care?
Similar to REOptimizer, Driver Whiz, Swift PC Optimizer, and many others, Cloud System Care is a dubious application that supposedly allows users optimize the system by cleaning junk files, fixing registries, eliminating potential threats, and so forth. This functionality might seem completely appropriate and handy. However, it is worth mentioning that Cloud System Care often infiltrates the system without permission, due to the fact that developers promote it by using the "bundling" method. For this reason, Cloud System Care is categorized as a potentially unwanted application (PUA).
Cloud System Care allows users to run a system scan and detect existing errors/problems/infections. What's more important is that the free version of Cloud System Care is incapable of solving detected issues. For this reason, users are encouraged to purchase the advanced version. The problem is that it is currently unknown whether Cloud System Care can actually be trusted. Be aware that vast majority of "bundled" system optimization tools are fake. They feed users with false scan results just to scare and trick them into purchasing advanced versions that will remove errors which don't even exist. In other words, crooks attempt to generate revenue by abusing gullible users. There's a credibility that Cloud System Care is also one of these applications. Therefore, we advise you to consider uninstalling this application. "Bundling" is often used to proliferate several unwanted programs at once. This means that Cloud System Care may not be the only infiltrated app. In most cases, "bundling" method is used to distribute adware and browser hijackers. Such apps are designed to record information, deliver intrusive advertisements, and cause unwanted redirects. Aside from uninstalling Cloud System Care you should remove other questionable applications/browser extensions as well.
There are hundreds of potentially unwanted applications, all of which are virtually identical. By offering "advantageous features", these applications create the impression of legitimacy and usefulness. In reality, however, only a small percentage actually provides what's promised. Vast majority of unwanted apps have only one purpose: to generate revenue for the developers. Therefore, instead of enabling promised features, these programs cause unwanted redirects, deliver ads and gather information about user's web browsing activity.
How did potentially unwanted applications install on my computer?
Cloud System Care is free for anyone to download at it's official website. However, as said before, it often infiltrates the system without permission, because developers proliferate it by using the "bundling" method - a stealth installation of third party apps together with the regular ones. Developers aren't honest enough to adequately disclose installation of third party apps. That's why all "bundled" programs are hidden behind "Custom/Advanced" settings (or other sections) of download/installation processes. If that wasn't enough, users often recklessly rush and skip most of these procedures' steps. By doing so, users expose the system to risk of various infections and put their very own privacy into threat.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Always be sure to carefully analyze all steps of download/installation processes using either "Custom" or "Advanced" settings. While doing so, opt-out third party applications/browser plug-ins and cancel all offers to download/install such. We recommend to avoid using third party downloaders/installers, because developers monetize them by promoting rogue software. Instead, download programs only from official sources, using direct download links. Unwanted apps are also known to be distributed using intrusive advertisements which lead to questionable sites and execute scripts that download/install rogue software. These ads are displayed by adware-type apps. Therefore, if you encounter them you should immediately remove questionable applications and browser plug-ins. The main reasons for computer infections are poor knowledge and reckless behavior - key to it's safety is caution. If your computer is already infected with PUAs, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
