EasyCleanPro is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) that should allegedly clean your computer from harmful files. However, it may not possess the ability to perform a real scan and cannot detect any malicious programs. All of the pop-ups and security alerts displayed by EasyCleanPro should be ignored. Their goal is to scare the user and to make him purchase the full version of the application. The constant notifications are not only annoying, but they also may cause other issues such as slow down the speed of the computer. In an attempt to convince the user that his computer is indeed contaminated, EasyCleanPro may block some features such as the Control Panel or the Task Manager. The PUP usually gets installed bundled with some untrustworthy cost-free applications. People should pay close attention when installing freeware in order not to load PUPs such as EasyCleanPro
