What is VuuPC?
VuuPC is an ad-supported program that is promoted as an application that can help you access your Home or Office computer remotely. It is also said that you can use it to transfer data between the devices without any difficulties. Although it may seem like a useful program, you should also know that it is classified as potentially unwanted for a reason.
