How to remove Clean My Chrome from the computer and browsers

Today we will tell you about a new advertising program, which recently appeared in the Chrome Web Store and actively penetrates users' computers. This program is called Clean My Chrome and represents the quintessence of swindler’s arrogance. We will try to explain this statement. In the last year, anyone who investigates viruses or simply follows the news about malicious programs could notice that scammers are making less and less of real viruses. The production of malware takes time and money, and any virus is eventually added to the anti-virus database, which immediately blocks and deletes it. In some cases, the appearance of a virus in databases takes several hours, in the worst case - up to a week. Scammers decided to follow a different path, and instead of developing new ways of penetrating, they try to use psychology. All the latest advertising programs are based on the simplest and rather silly deception of the user, in the hope that he will willingly download the virus on his computer and install it. The creators of Clean My Chrome did exactly that: they had the audacity to submit an application that can delete history, and somehow placed it in the official application directory for Google Chrome. Unfortunately, such a function is present in any browser, including Google Chrome, and it was there since the very creation of the browser. The question arises: is Clean My Chrome application useful? The answer is simple - this application is completely useless, and scammers use it to show unreliable advertising to users. In this article we will tell you how to remove Clean My Chrome from the browser and from the system, and also how to prevent re-infection.

In connection with the current situation in the environment of malicious software, we can add one more tip to our standard list of prevention of infection: you should carefully study all the programs that you use. Do not be lazy to spend an hour of time and learn the functions that are available in your browser, text editor, antivirus and any other program that you use. By doing this you can easily recognize the malicious program, knowing that the functions it offers are absolutely useless, and have long been represented in other, reliable and proven programs.
