    PC cleaner pro

    OK, like a dumb a** I downloaded PC Cleaner Pro, can anyone lead me in the direction as to how I can get this off my computer?
    I fell into their trap trying to get rid of Yontoo 1.10.02 that I have no idea how I got on my computer.
    I'm just praying that when I shut down I'll be able to get back on and into my email.
    Thank you to who ever can help me,
    Marlene

    Hi,

    Wlecome to the Lounge.

    The easiest and quickest way is to restore your system to a restore point from a time before you got infected.

    Run your antivirus application and or download and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as a first step.

    Boot your computer into safe mode with networking and uninstall from the control panel. There should be a
    semi-hidden uninstaller in the lower right hand side.

    Thank you for your reply, I was able to uninstall it, I just hope it didn't leave behind and trash.
    I appreciate your welcome and advice.

    Thank you so much, I'm running Malwarebytes now, I uninstalled PC Cleaner pro last night, whewwww! As soon as I'd done that download I knew it was a scam and backed out of it and started searching for help, thank you for coming to my rescue.
