Speedup Mac Pro Adware Removal
About Speedup Mac Pro
Speedup Mac Pro is a potentially unwanted program (PUP), advertised as a system optimization tool for Mac computers. It claims to speed up your device and clean it of junk. However, what it actually does is it tries to scare you into thinking that your Mac is full of issues so that you would buy the full version of the program. These kinds of programs are often referred to as scareware. Oftentimes, the performance issues such programs claim your computer has don’t actually exist. And if they do, they aren’t as serious as the program claims they are. Such programs aren’t actually malicious in the sense that they don’t harm your computer, but they are completely useless to you, thus purchasing them is not recommended. We suggest you delete Speedup Mac Pro.
Such programs can install without your explicit permission, as they use software bundling. They come attached to free software as additional offers, and if you do not deselect them, they will install alongside. If you want to learn how to install freeware without those extra offers, read the following section of this report.
How do PUPs install?
Users sometimes install PUPs themselves, thinking they are useful programs. So you might have installed Speedup Mac Pro yourself in hopes that it will clean up your Mac. However, it’s also possible that it installed alongside some freeware. When you install free programs, you need to check for attached offers. If you do not manually deselect them during installation, they will install alongside without requiring your permission. To prevent these unwanted installations you need to opt for Advanced (Custom) settings during freeware installation. Those settings will make all added offers visible, and you will be able to deselect them.
Even if those offers seem useful, we do not recommend installing them. Software bundling is a questionable way to distribute programs, and you should not install programs that use it. Your computer will very quickly fill up with junk programs if you allow those offers to install.
Should you remove Speedup Mac Pro?
First of all, we should mention that the program is not going to harm your computer, as that is not its intention. What it will try to do is get your money, by strongly encouraging you to purchase the full version of the program. It will pretend to scan your Mac for issues related to performance, memory, unwanted apps, etc. Scan results will show possibly hundreds of issues that urgently need solving. If you believe the program and try to use it to fix the identified issues, you would be asked to buy the full program. Obviously, we do not recommend doing that. Instead, check scan results carefully. The issues the program claims your computer has either don’t actually exist, or are very minor.
In general, experts’ opinions differ when it comes to system optimizers. Since modern computers are fully capable of maintaining themselves, system optimization tools should be unnecessary. And they don’t perform complex tasks, so users can do everything manually without issue. However, if you believe you would benefit from a system optimizer, there are trustworthy programs that could help you. However, make sure you do your research.
