Posted: May 17, 2019

Microsoft Cleanup is a computer threat that may be advertised as a software application that helps to rid junk on a PC. By using and leveraging the Microsoft name Microsoft Cleanup may trick computer users into trusting the Microsoft Cleanup program.

Using Microsoft Cleanup may cause issues but so far it is not clearly identified as a malicious program. Instead, computer security experts have labeled Microsoft Cleanup to be a potentially unwanted program, something that most should use their wise judgement to decide if they want to keep the program installed.

For those finding Microsoft Cleanup to be questionable, they may eliminate the program automatically utilizing an antimalware tool instead of trusting the uninstallation process to rid all aspects of the Microsoft Cleanup application.
