How to uninstall “Regclean Pro” virus (Removal Guide)

Problem

Good morning.

Yesterday I read some pc guru’s forum and they advised to clean the system registry with Regclean Pro to clean it from junk files and this will improve my pc’s performance. So I googled for that software, downloaded and installed it. After installation was completed I launched the program and performed a deep scan to optimize my system registry. The program has found a lot of errors and I was quite surprised that my system is in that bad condition, but when I tried to fix all of those errors the program redirected me to the purchase page. I don’t want to pay money for this program and it is useless without buying the full version. I clicked on the Regclean Pro icon on my desktop but there is no option to uninstall the program. Could you please help me? How to uninstall Regclean Pro virus? How to get rid of Regclean Pro?
