PerfectCleaner may have a perfectly innocuous name and a helpful sounding label but it is neither perfect nor will it clean anything for you. PerfectCleaner is a rogue security application meant to deceive users into thinking there is an immediate security threat to their PC. PerfectCleaner’s invasion occurs via a Trojan horse file. Once inside, this program will perform system scans, which will produce false results. The Trojan file will help to execute the program and once it is up and running, you will receive countless false alerts, warnings, pop-ups and system scans that will attempt to intimidate you into purchasing this fake software.
This particular program is a knockoff of SystemStable, another fake anti-spyware application. PerfectCleaner will embed itself into your registry, which will allow it to run on each startup of Windows and is created to re-install itself it there are removal attempts.
By design, it will continually try to recreate itself in order for the program to survive on your PC.
