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 to optimize their systems by cleaning junk files, fixing registries, eliminating potential threats, and so on. This functionality may seem legitimate and useful, however, Cloud System Care often infiltrates systems without permission and developers promote it using the "bundling" method. Therefore, 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. Note that the 'free' version of Cloud System Care is incapable of solving detected issues. Therefore, users are encouraged to purchase a more advanced version. It is currently unknown whether Cloud System Care can be trusted. Be aware that many "bundled" system optimization tools are fake. They feed users with false scan results just to scare and trick them into purchasing so-called 'advanced' versions that remove errors (that do not even exist). In this way, criminals generate revenue by tricking gullible users. There is a high probability that Cloud System Care is one of these rogue applications. Therefore, we advise you to consider uninstalling this application. "Bundling" is often used to proliferate several unwanted programs at once and, thus, Cloud System Care may not be the only app that has infiltrated your system. In most cases, the "bundling" method is used to distribute adware and browser hijackers. These apps record information, deliver intrusive advertisements, and cause unwanted redirects. As well as uninstalling Cloud System Care, you should also remove other dubious applications/browser extensions.

There are hundreds of potentially unwanted applications online, all of which are virtually identical. By offering "useful features", they attempt to give the impression of legitimacy, however, few provide any real value. Most unwanted apps have just one purpose: to generate revenue for the developers. Rather than enabling the features promised, these programs cause unwanted redirects, deliver ads and gather information relating to web browsing activity.
How did potentially unwanted applications install on my computer?
Cloud System Care is free for anyone to download on its official website, however, as mentioned, it often infiltrates systems without permission, since developers proliferate it using the "bundling" method (stealth installation of third party apps with regular software/apps). Developers are not honest enough to adequately disclose installation of third party apps. Therefore, "bundled" programs are hidden within "Custom/Advanced" settings (or other sections) of the download/installation processes. In addition, many users rush and skip steps, thereby exposing their systems to risk of various infections and compromising their privacy.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Ccarefully analyze all steps of the download/installation processes using the "Custom" or "Advanced" settings. Opt-out of third party applications/browser plug-ins and cancel offers to download/install them. We recommend that you avoid using third party downloaders/installers, since developers monetize them by promoting rogue software. Download programs from official sources only, using direct download links. Unwanted apps are also known to be distributed using intrusive advertisements that lead to dubious sites and execute scripts that download/install rogue software. These ads are displayed by adware-type apps. Therefore, if you encounter them, immediately remove dubious applications and browser plug-ins. The main reasons for computer infections are poor knowledge and careless behavior - the key to safety is caution. If your computer is already infected with PUAs, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
