What is SlimCleaner Plus?
SlimCleaner Plus is a legitimate application that can help you clean your PC and “remove temporary files, history and other junk that can take up space and compromise your privacy”. SlimCleaner Plus has an official website slimcleaner.com where it can be downloaded. It is also available on slimwareutilities.com and download.cnet.com.
Although some researchers claim that it is a potentially unwanted application, that is not the case. The reason they may state that is because the program can also be installed together with other freeware. However, that is not its fault. The application itself does not cause any security related issues and if you want, you can delete SlimCleaner Plus without any difficulties.
How does SlimCleaner Plus work?
There is no reason to panic if SlimCleaner Plus appears on your computer supposedly out of nowhere. If you go to slimwareutilities.com, you will see that this application is not the only one that belongs to SlimWare Utilities, a U.S.-based software company that provides consumers with programs and services “that clean, repair, update and optimize personal computers”. Other applications that belong to it include SlimDrivers, SlimComputer, and more. The company has security certifications from various trusted partners like Microsoft and AVG.
If you downloaded the program yourself, you should not have any problems with it. However, if it came bundled with other freeware, you may want to run a system scan to check if there are other applications that have been installed without your notice as well. If you download freeware from third party software hosting websites, you need to pay attention to its installation as usually there are additional offers that you can either agree to or decline. Just keep in mind that it is best to choose Advanced installation so that you can control which applications can access your PC. As for the SlimWare software, if you want to terminate SlimCleaner Plus, move on to the next chapter.
