A normal program uninstaller usually always leave trace on your computer which can possibly slow down your computer and take up more of your disk space.

Using Revo Uninstaller Freeware (, you can uninstall any program that is installed on your computer within all the traces such as unused files and program's registry files.

Open the website link provided, and then scroll into "Revo Uninstaller Freeware" section where you can download it for free. There is also Pro plan if you wish to use it further more advanced.

* The "Advanced" mode is more thorough, but for safety, use the "Moderate" mode. It is still scans all the proper leftover files
* When selecting registry files to be deleted, be sure to just check only with "bolded" text.

While it is just not any of the legitimate one and bears a fake security application.

Well, instead of being known for its cleaning usage, we suggest you not to have this very application as it holds bundles of the malicious properties embedded inside and relates from the hacker's source due to some of the fake scanning results that it provides to the users.

As it is known to you, PerforMax Cleaner is officially promoted and is available for install on You may found the other related programs holding this particular brand over there. Only paid versions are available not the free one. It is being noticed that this particular program is bundled with numeral ads and popups displayed on your screen. You must avoid clicking on it as its download holds the additional install holding the bogus code embedded inside which can damage your PC completely.

You must avoid it as this keeps you annoying bearing infectious features. You must must not waste your time anymore to eliminate it, if running on your PC.
