SpeedyPC is software which claims to be an optimizing tool with registry cleaning capability that purports to improve performance, make repairs and enhance the speed of a computer. These types of programs and the claims they make are borderline scams...see Scambook: Speedy PC Pro Summary
If you have been using this program routinely...there is no telling what damage it has already done to your registry and other areas it purports to clean.
Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons.
Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and Optimization Tools
Further, these types of junk programs are often considered Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs).
To learn more about PUPs, please read: About those Toolbars and Add-ons - Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs)
I recommend you remove it.
* How to Uninstall SpeedyPC <- I recommend doing this in safe mode.
Instead of Programs and Features or Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, you can also use a third-party utility like Revo Uninstaller Free or Portable which does a more comprehensive job of searching for and removing related registry entries, files and folders. Follow these instructions for using it but do so after rebooting in safe mode.
