Issue: How to uninstall Win Speedup 2018

Hi. I noticed some suspicious activity of Speedup 2018 program on my computer. I don’t know where it came from, as I never downloaded it. It performs scans and tells me that my PC is heavily damaged. However, my computer runs smoothly, so I don’t think this is true. For some reason, the uninstall process fails every time I try it. And I want to get rid of it ASAP. Please help!

Solved Answer

Win Speedup 2018 is presented as a system optimizer and a registry cleaner that can eliminate all the junk from the PC and make it run faster. However, security experts noted that this optimizer is not entirely genuine and hardly benefit computer in any way.

Win Speedup 2018 is considered to be a potentially unwanted program[1] as it enters users’ machines without permission. PUP creators often employ software bundling[2] – a deceptive marketing technique that helps free software developers to install additional components together with the desired application.

Therefore, if you want to avoid such applications, you should always pick Advanced or Custom installation mode. Once prompted, remove all the tick marks by add-ons, toolbars,[3] optimization utilities and similar useless software.

It goes without saying that most programs that are distributed via bundling are quite useless and only seek financial benefit. Win Speedup 2018 is precisely that and will come up with multiple automatic scans and, obviously, find a multitude of issues with the computer.

The problem is that the issues detected are minor and do not affect computer’s performance in any way. For example, Google’s cookies might be marked for deletion “to speed up” the PC.

Another portion of suggested files to delete are Windows registry[4] entries. A registry is a set of databases that hold all the information about the settings for Microsoft Windows operating system. Sometimes, these tiny files might get outdated, incorrectly deleted or get corrupted.

Nevertheless, deleting or modifying registry entries is not recommended as it might negatively impact correct OS operation. Besides, these files only take a few kilobytes of space and will not impact your computer speed.
