What is Dev360 Cleaner?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Dev360 Cleaner is a fake registry cleaner and system optimizer. These programs use intentional false positives to convince users that their systems have problems. Then they try to sell you their software, claiming it will remove these problems.
More information can be found on our Malwarebytes Unpacked blog.

How do I know if I am infected with Dev360 Cleaner?

This is how the main screen of the registry cleaning application looks:
