I love GAOTD but that's a shame to see this. This software is one of those which never should make an appearance here. Their webpage score tells it all: https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/yac.mx

I like to research and have a look at the software being offered here, like Karl, before I download it. Here is what I found. https://blog.malwarebytes.org/fraud-scam/2015/03/yet-another-cleaner-yet-another-stealer/
Recently, malwarebytes discovered that a relatively popular “anti-malware” product known as “Yet Another Cleaner” or YAC for short, has been claiming to be an affiliate of Malwarebytes in addition to using a lot of our detection names as their own. We looked deeper into their operation and found some pretty amazing and ugly things.
“Yet Another Cleaner” is owned by Elex do Brasil Participações Ltda Technology Inc. They are located in Brazil and have a wide array of products including a speed test, alarm clock, IP lookup and of course, YAC.
YAC itself is a fairly sleek-looking program and very quick as well. It seems to have the ability to protect users from malicious web sites, cleanup junk files on their system, uninstall applications and even to block advertisements!
The above I copied, from malwarebytes blog, and pasted here.

Just a word of warning, when I clocked on the link given to the Malwarebytes blog, which is an https secure site, I found a prefix sur.ly inserted, thus HTTPS:SUR.LY then the real address!
At the bottom of the screen there was a message saying my disk was nearly full, click here to fix blah blah etc., and arrow pointing to the task bar.
This is just how malware gets added, though it might be something else, either way, anything that pretends to be a message from your PC should be avoided like the plague.
The blog was very good, and as I already use malwarebytes premium, I would not have tried this, so thanks for the heads up, but not sure yet how the SUR.LY got added, I will have to investigate, unless one of the knowledgeable readers can shed some light on this. Either way, take care where you click.

OPSWAT Certification Revoked for YAC
Posted by Ronald Melencio / March 20, 2015
Malwarebytes recently posted claims that Elex Technologies has been stealing information from the Malwarebytes signature database, specifically for Elex Technologies’ Yet Another Cleaner (YAC) product. Based on the claim and thorough testing presented by Malwarebytes, we began our own investigation into Elex Technologies, who had previously received OPSWAT Certification for their products.
At OPSWAT we place a great deal of importance on legal and ethical business practices, and we believe strongly in establishing partnerships with companies who conduct business appropriately. As part of the OPSWAT Certification process, we perform tests to ensure that antivirus products in particular are not rogue or scareware applications. The claims against Elex Technologies were concerning to us; although their product fit our criteria for antivirus certification, their methods for developing the product were called into question.
After obtaining the data from Malwarebytes, and doing some internal analysis, our R&D team was able to validate Malwarebytes’ claim. Therefore, we’ve made a decision to remove the existing OPSWAT Certification for YAC from the program. Yet Another Cleaner 4.x will no longer be Bronze Certified under Windows Antispyware. We’ve asked Elex Technologies to remove any badges or information of partnership with OPSWAT from their website. Additionally, Elex Tech products (including YAC) will now be flagged as Potentially Unwanted Application (PUA) by OESIS.
We have discontinued our partnership with Elex Technologies and plan to continue our policy going forward that such business practices will not be tolerated.

Installed and registered on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system.
Too many programs try to contact the I-Net: Among those "uninstall.exe" in a temporary directory as phone home component:
Hmmm, installs the following services, problems guaranteed (promised!):
YAC Boot Driver
YAC Kit Driver
YAC Mini-Filter Driver
YAC Monitor Driver
YAC NDIS Driver
YAC Ring3 Driver
A Brasilian company without name and address with a Mexican Internet address.
"Elex do Brasil Participações Ltda Technology Inc is a worldwide supplier of self-developed innovative system utilities and security solutions for professional and private use."
Starts to update the database after installation automatically.
After start a modern, non resizable window opens. You can start to check your system - as a one click option.
Hmmm, it would be a long comment to comment every item. It does partly show, what the program has found as "problem",
dict.leo.or and duckduckgo.com as malicious plugins
does not show the junk files or wrong traces (registry keys). This is a simple blackbox.
The protection "protects" only the installed default browser - no others.
The anti-malsware scan takes quite a long time and shows the following threads:
Detects empty values from Zoner Photo Studio as "heuristic threads" - open the registry editor, if you want to see the location.
Be careful with removing so called threads, if you don't know, what you delete!!!
Difficult to give an opinion, INMHO too many different tasks under one hood. Influences the running system with a lot of services, security isues not to mention.
Maybe you will be happy with this one year program.
Uninstalled via reboot - I prefer to keep my windows as simple as possible.

Norton REALLY didn't like this programme! I strongly advise against downloading and installing this one, and I'll explain why.
I was unsettled by the fact that it started to use my name immediately it was installed, it had obviously dug around the system somewhere. Then the tool-bars and pop-up bits started. I did a Google search and this programme is seriously distrusted by experts, and has lost its accreditation, both for being a rip-off of another programme and because it has a reputation as a fraud and possibly even a virus in itself. In addition to links others have posted, |I also found this one - http://botcrawl.com/remove-yac-virus/ which others may find useful. It claims that 'The program is known to perform fraudulent computer scans in order to create customers and collect personal user information.'.
Uninstalled with some effort as it didn't want to be uninstalled, then offered the latest version to try and tempt me back. System restart required.
GAOTD is trusted by its users, may I respectfully suggest that you may have been misled by this one and that this programme is taken down before that reputation is dented.
