Remove Disk Cleaner


In this case we write a article about the removal instruction for Disk Cleaner by Safe App LLC. Do notice that Disk Cleaner is not a virus. But it does act like a Potentially Unwanted Program. We got questions from customers who installed Disk Cleaner on their computer without notice. This is because Disk Cleaner comes bundled with known adware contained custom installers from several free download sites.

If you try to decline Disk Cleaner during installation of the free software you are trying to download, the whole installation quits. Even the free software is not installed. This behavior might vary from installer.

Do notice that Disk Cleaner is a PUP, which basically means it is software you did not ask for but installed without possible notice. 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.
