The Only Thing PCCleanPro Cleans Out Is Your Piggybank

Most rogue applications, like PCCleanPro, infect a computer with the help of a trojan. Once they get on to a computer they start to display fake and exaggerated scan results designed to scare the user into paying for a full version of a completely bogus program. If someone is ever suckered into buying a full version they will be putting themselves out there for more targeted scams. Usually buying a full version of PCCleanPro will only put more spyware onto the computer.
