PC Optimizer Pro

Despite the best efforts of the online security industry to secure the exact opposite, many of its consumers continue to fall into the trap set by malicious rogue security tools like PC Optimizer Pro. This type of rogue antispyware, much like all of its contemporaries were designed to only rip its victims off, and not offer anything of value in return. Although seemingly legitimate, PC Optimizer Pro is nothing more than a worthless, yet extremely destructive infection.

The rogue will enter the system under suspicious circumstances with the help of rubbish online malware scanners and seditious browser hijackers, among many other tactics. It only reveals itself to the user when it is ready to start its attack against the system. This happens by PC Optimizer Pro initiating a fake system scan which will inevitably yield bogus results aimed at panicking the user into paying for PC Optimizer Pro’s worthless software.

PC Optimizer Pro will also proceed to cause incredibly poor system performance and increased erratic system behavior. It will block the user’s Internet access and prevent him from running applications on the system. In order to limit the damage this rogue will cause your system you need to obliterate PC Optimizer Pro as soon as possible.

    Hey American,

    If you have removed PC optimizer pro and you still have pupups it would be good to scan your system with SpyHunter free scanner to see what left overs you have in your system that are causing these alerts to show up. Let us know about your findings

    I dont know why there is so negative publicity for the Pc Optimizer Pro although it is a very good software .I used it personally and it keeps my System up to date . its a registry cleaner software which cleans junk out of your system . i found this article on microsoft. If you want to have any further information.

  13. Alex May 24, 2014

    I need your email address or phone number i want to contact you regarding this matter can you prove it, it is created by Russians and it is a virus do you even know what it is meant for i will take legal actions against you for spreading wrong information between users. but before that i want to contact you my email address is Abhiagg17@gmail.com

  14. Anuj Gambhir May 26, 2014

    Hi, PC Optimizer Pro is a useful software that help in cleaning your registry and help in speeding up your computer. Spreading negative information regarding any software is bad marketing .its a illegal business.

  15. Alex May 26, 2014

    Yes Mr Anuj you are right and i will file a complaint in court regarding that and will soon you will see results i am just waiting for answer from these guys and i will wait only for 5 more days spy hunter is a very bad product it just removed my all data from My PC and anyone who is promoting this software i will see every one. i am a law officer and all these guys will see result soon

  16. Delinique Jun 10, 2014

    If PC Optimizer Pro is "a useful software" why did it slow down my computer and make all these pop ups start appearing. And if it was on the up and up why is it so hard to uninstall? How do you uninstall it without installing another program?

  17. Mark Daniel G. Dacer Jun 18, 2014

    USE YOURUNSTELLER PROGRAM google it -

  18. pete Jul 25, 2014

    PCOptimizer is a really nasty little programme. I caught it by accident when trying to download Windows Video Editor and must have taken it from a non-legit source. If you 'show hidden files' you can trace it into the registry but even after eliminating it here, it soon bounces back. By far the best removal tool is REVO freeware. Forget Spyhunter, just another profiteer.

  19. awesomeice Aug 6, 2014

    looking at comments 12 and 14 i say LOL.
    if its being promoted at all, we all know its from the creators.
    Problem comments 12 and 14?

  20. Kris Aug 22, 2014

    Lol comment 15. Okay, Alex. "i am a law officer and all these guys will see result soon"

    Apparently a "law officer" who can't use capitalization, punctuation or articles. You people have no ***** idea how irritating this PCoptimizer ***** has been for me.

  21. Juanita Aug 30, 2014

    With the optimizer pro my computer is blacked out and it will not go past this stupid box please help

  22. Joan M Sep 12, 2014

    I would just like this company to piss off and stop har*****ing me and we do need someone to legally sue them for har*****ment. I am 77 years of age and a lot of people my age would have been taken in by these awful people. My computer working slow ???????????????If my computer went any faster I couldn't keep up with it. Please will you legal beagles get on to them and quickly.

  23. awesomeice Sep 14, 2014

    12 and 14 obviously work for the virus or are a person who is getting paid to say that LOL i forgot to add that

  24. awesomeice Sep 14, 2014

    @12 i would like you to prove that. you must either be
    a. delusional
    b. a person who uses inspect element so it looks real even though it doesnt.

  25. awesomeice Sep 14, 2014

    @1 and 3 try removing it though regedit.exe.

  26. awesomeice Sep 14, 2014

    @14 ... you are right it is an illegal business. "PC Optimizer Pro is a useful software that help in cleaning your registry and help in speeding up your computer." more like a useless software that helps clog up your registry and help slow down your computer.
    @16. that is our point. IT IS A VIRUS!

  27. awesomeice Sep 14, 2014

    @7. then you are still infected. remove it through regedit.exe. remember that they leave those keys on there hoping you will reinstall it.

  28. awesomeice Sep 14, 2014

    oh btw 18, if you mess up its binary data it will have a harder time reinstalling. also check for other viruses which will restore it like whitesmoke or lyricsviewer.

  29. awesomeice Sep 15, 2014

    if you guys think pc optimizer pro ***** then do what i do. troll their chat >:).

  30. anony Oct 12, 2014

    @21 try booting in safe mode then remove it from the registry

  31. Sharon Oct 15, 2014

    PC Optimizer Pro is seriously pissing me off. I have been trying to uninstall through the control panel but I get this error message, "C:\Program Files(x86)\Optimizer Pro\unins000.msg" is missing. Please correct the problem or obtain a new copy of the program.
