Systemcarepro.net is a website that promotes a misleading Windows optimization tool dubbed as SystemCarePro. Upon the analysis of the website and tool itself, it has been found that the promoted optimization tool claims to be able to fix and optimize Windows registries, boost startup, prevent crashes, freezes, and more. However, in reality, the application is generating false-positives or random system files among scan results and report a supposedly low system performance status. The SystemCarePro application seeks to create a feeling of urgency to make its users purchase a full-licensed version.
