Adroit System Care removal instructions
What is Adroit System Care?
Adroit System Care is a software that supposed to clean, optimize and speed up Windows computers, fix various errors and provide users with other features. Nevertheless, this program can be found in setups of other software, Adroit System Care is distributed by bundling it into them. People often download and install bundled programs unintentionally, for this reason Adroit System Care is classified as a potentially unwanted application (PUA).
This program allows users to scan their systems for various issues, errors and so on. However, Adroit System Care does not allow to fix any of the detected issues unless it is activated (purchased). Simply said, the only thing that people can do with it for free is to scan their systems for various problems. Note, it is not recommended to trust programs that are distributed by bundling them into various download/installation setups. There are many cases where software of this type is designed to fabricate results (detected issues). The main goal is to trick people into believing that there are many problems with their systems so they would purchase a particular program that supposed to fix them. It is possible that Adroit System Care is one of these programs, so we do not recommend to pay for its activation. Besides, quite often developers use setups to bundle more than one potentially unwanted app. It means that Adroit System Care might be bundled together with some adware, browser hijacker or other PUA. Adware is a software that displays advertisements. Usually these ads are various pop-ups, surveys, banners, coupons and so on. Users who click them end up visiting questionable pages or cause downloads/installations of other, potentially malicious applications. Browser hijackers, if installed, promote some fake search engine. They change browser settings. Additionally, apps of this type operate as information tracking tools, they gather browsing data such as user's geolocation, URLs of visited sites, entered search queries, IP addresses and so on. There are cases when such PUAs record personal details tool. Their developers send recorded information to other people (potentially, cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate income.

How did potentially unwanted applications install on my computer?
Quite ofren potentially unwanted applications of this type have their supposedly official websites where they can be downloaded for free. However, more often than not users download and install them by clicking unreliable ads or when software developers use a "bundling" method. Bundling is a deceptive marketing method that software developers to trick people into unintentional downloads/installations. To achieve it, they do not disclose information about bundled apps properly and hide it in "Custom", "Advanced" settings of download or installation setups. Many users download and install programs without checking the details that are available in their setups and that is how they allow PUAs to be downloaded and/or installed together with those programs.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Do not download software from untrustworthy websites, through some third party software downloaders, torrent clients, eMule (other Peer-to-Peer networks), or similar channels. Use only official, trustworthy websites and direct links. Never skip the installation steps without checking all the available "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar options first. Opt-out suggestions to download/install unwanted apps and only then finish download or installation process. Avoid clicking intrusive ads, especially the ones that are displayed on pages related gambling, adult dating, pornography and so on. They usually open other untrustworthy websites or cause unwanted downloads (or installations). If a browser shows unwanted ads or causes redirects to untrustworthy web pages, then it might be hijacked by some PUA. Check the list of installed extensions, add-ons and plug-ins and remove unwanted, suspicious entries as soon as possible. Uninstall all unwanted programs from the operating system too. If your computer is already infected with PUAs, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
