CleanMyPC is not a virus. But it does act like a Potentially Unwanted Program. We got questions from customers who installed CleanMyPC on their computer without notice. This is because CleanMyPC comes bundled with known adware contained custom installers from several free download sites.
Do notice that CleanMyPC is a PUP (MalwareBytes detects it as PUP.Optional.CleanMyPC), which basically means it is software you did not ask for but installed without possible notice of the user.
The bad side of PUPs is it is often offered with lots of adware. Therefor we included in this Removal Instruction two free tools to scan your computer for PUPs, adware, browser hijacker and toolbars. The software offered is completely free and should help you get rid of unwanted software.
