Doctor Cleaner - Not The PC Medical Miracle You Were Hoping For

Lots of popups got your computer under the weather? If one of those popups was for Doctor Cleaner, your best bet is to find another doctor to remove adware from your machine.

 

What Is Doctor Cleaner?

Doctor Cleaner is adware that suggests it will fix all of your adware and security problems. Unfortunately, though, Doctor Cleaner is part of your adware problems, not the solution to them.

What Might I See With Doctor Cleaner?

If you do have Doctor Cleaner on your computer, you are likely to notice a number of things. One of the first things you will notice with Doctor Cleaner is a slower overall computing experience. Doctor Cleaner has lots of files associated with the program, and it has one particular file that tells it to run as soon as you turn the computer on. As a result, less of your computer's virtual memory can be allocated to the programs that you actually want to run on your computer. So, whether you're trying to pay your bills online, or you just want to play that new ABC learning game with your toddler, your computer is bound to run very slowly, dramatically changing your productivity rates.

Another thing you might see if you have Doctor Cleaner on your computer is lots of different kinds of popup advertisements.

  1. One of the first kinds of popup ads you will notice is a very frightening one. It will look a lot like your system notification balloons that come from the area by your computer's clock, called the system tray. These will look rather official, and in most cases, they will simply say things like, security alert, or adware detected, or something similar. All of them will suggest you click the balloon to fix the problem. Whatever you do, though, please don't click the balloon. It will only take you to an unsecure internet site where you might be subjected to drive-by-downloads and other adware threats.
  2. The second kind of popup ad you might see will also look a bit menacing. This kind of advertisement will pretend to scan your computer. In almost every case, it will come back with serious threats, and the ad suggests that the only way to fix those threats is to download and install the full version of Doctor Cleaner.
  3. The final type of popup ad you might notice will be the traditional popup advertisement. It will usually occur during the course of your normal internet browsing experience, and in most cases, it will be for Doctor Cleaner or one of its affiliates. Invariably, though, it will claim to cure everything that ails your computer.

There are other Doctor Cleaner symptoms you might see. First, you might notice that your desktop has changed. Perhaps the background has gone blue and been replaced with a warning that you have security threats on your computer. Visiting the Doctor Cleaner will solve your problems, according to the new background. You might also notice strange shortcut options that you didn't place on your desktop. In most cases, these will be for Doctor Cleaner or its affiliates. Finally, your browsing experience will change. Besides the popups, you may also notice that you have a new internet start page. The chances are pretty good that your new start page is for Doctor Cleaner. Should you need to be redirected during your internet browsing experience, you will most likely end up back at the Doctor Cleaner site or an affiliate site. Finally, your internet bookmark files may now include entries for Doctor Cleaner and the like.

Is Doctor Cleaner Dangerous?

Doctor Cleaner is dangerous in that it has the potential to be a problem. First, it has the ability to record information about you as a computer user. It can look at the sites you visit as well as any personal information you enter. It also has the ability to upload that information to a third party. While there are no recorded identity theft problems associated with Doctor Cleaner, the potential is there. The other real possible problem with Doctor Cleaner is that its installation opens a security hole on your computer. Other adware products can pass through that hole with ease, meaning that you could have a bigger adware problem on your hands than you initially thought.

How Do I Remove Doctor Cleaner?

You have three possible Doctor Cleaner removal options. First, you can try to edit your computer's registry. This, though, is dangerous, and if you're not a professional, you should at least have one by your side. The following files are associated with Doctor Cleaner.

%program_files%\ doctorcleaner\ doctorcleaner.exe  

%program_files%\ doctorcleaner\ registrator.exe  

drcln_setup.exe

Make a system back up before you start, and know what you are doing. One wrong keystroke could cause serious computer problems, and moreover, should you miss a Doctor Cleaner file while you're in there, you might have it reinstall itself.

The next option is to work through your add/remove programs panel. This, though, is an issue for a couple of reasons. First, it may not appear in your add/remove programs panel. Second, working to remove Doctor Cleaner through there may be more of an issue than you thought. A missed file means a reinstallation, which means you're back where you started.

Your final option to remove Doctor Cleaner is to download and install a trusted antivirus program. There are lots of antivirus and antispyware programs out there, and unfortunately, things like Doctor Cleaner fit into that category. Do a bit of research. Read forum postings and reviews of each product before you choose one. Talk to friends and neighbors to see what they use. Then pick a reputable product. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) is a great choice. Whatever you choose, though, be sure to update your definition files and scan your computer often. Your new program will make short work of Doctor Cleaner and its associates. Moreover, with a good program, you'll be sure to protect yourself from future threats like Doctor Cleaner.
