How to remove (uninstall) Clean My Chrome

Clean My Chrome

Here we will talk about new adware that is called Clean My Chrome. Clean My Chrome is a standard example of an advertising program and does not differ from thousands of other similar programs, but we simply could not get past it, and leave such a magnificent work of scammers to stay in obscurity. Every year, more and more people become computer users, and the average level of user knowledge is gradually decreasing. According to this, scammers decided to make one of the dumbest adware ever, and it is a special application that knows how to clean history. This is not a joke, in the application menu scammers suggest cleaning the browser's cache, history, cookies, saved images and downloads. The only hitch with Clean My Chrome is that the Chrome browser already has the "clear history" function, and there you can just select all the data to be deleted, and leave the necessary ones without exposing your computer to the risk of infection. Users who installed Clean My Chrome immediately began to experience difficulties when using the Internet, increased advertising and other problems associated with adware infection. This program does not fulfill the declared functions, even considering that they are absolutely useless and have long been in the browser itself. Instead, Clean My Chrome fills the browser with ads and links to untrusted sites. If you do not want your browser, and then the whole system, to be completely clogged with adware and viruses - you should immediately remove Clean My Chrome from your computer, and in this article we'll show you how.

Clean My Chrome

Adware includes a pretty long list of miscellaneous types, but the most efficient of them are browser toolbars, redirects and adware. These tools weren't useful from the first days, so their functions are targeted only at getting money from advertising fraud. Most of customers believe that these utilities are worthy, being deluded by massive catalogues of their advantages, but all these advantages either do not work, or do not exist at all. What do these utilities really do?

  • Browser hijackers call another type of problem. Hijackers, from time to time open a scammer's webpage in the browser that passes to one of the malicious websites.
  • Browser toolbars show ads too, but not as active as other two sorts of advertising utilities. Also they pick info about user's search queries and visited web-pages, which are then passed on to fraudsters for further resale. Such info may be used against the user or passed to third parties for a decent price.
  • Typical adware is famous for the endless spam with various banners, ads and pop-ups. Suchlike utilities might be disguised as anything: media players, system cleaners, driver updaters, programs for finding news and funny stories and much more. Proposals which are generated by adware aren't reliable and we strongly advise you not to click on them.

Every of these three species of adware uses distinct techniques to infect the PC and to work inside of it. Despite the difference in modes, they are all similar by the fact that they were from the very beginning designed for cheat and deceit. In addition, according to that all these programs try to convince you to click on links to useless and even perilous websites, they allow other viruses to penetrate the machine.


Now you see which aims are targeted by Clean My Chrome and, it's time to understand how to reveal adware and eliminate it. The first and the most perilous sign of penetration is the quite high number of ads. Sign #2 is the emersion of strange programs in the system that you haven’t installed. This can happen if user passes the link to direct loading of the installation file. Viral programs act imperceptibly so you cannot realize that you actually downloaded them.

Another symptom is a heavy slowdown of the computer, and an growth in its loading time. Degradation of machine's speed isn't exclusively the result of adware, but this happens very frequently. The reason for this lag is that unlike decent programs, virus acts all the time, showing advertising and redirecting victim to unwanted web-pages. It means that virus is running at PC's startup and turning off only with the whole PC. If 3-5 such tools will sneak on your machine, their synchronous operation overloads the system, and needs so many resources that reliable tools just cannot run. This can induce retardation, critical errors of basic programs and emergency turn-offs. If you see any of these marks - you need to scan the machine via quality antivirus or eliminate all adware in manual manner.
