Recently, I found my computer had been installed a program called Speedy PC Pro. At first, I didn’t pay too much attention to this thing. But every time I turn on my computer, this program can be activated automatically. I don’t know how to stop it as it can start to scan my computer which can take a long time, and during that time, I can’t do anything on my computer cause it is super slow! After the scan, I was told that there are many problems on my computer which need to be fixed immediately? Should I trust this thing? Is my computer in danger really?
Brief Introduction to This Program
It is easy for everyone to think this Speedy PC Pro is a good program for computer users to install on their computers when they see the name of it for the first time. However, as a matter of fact, it belongs to a kind of computer threat that needs to be removed as soon as possible on the infected computer. To be more specific, it is a kind of fake anti-virus program that can rip money off from innocent computer users. It has nothing to do with the computer security and it can’t protect target computers from virus attack. Frankly, it is a computer virus that can bring troubles to the infected computers.
