Danger level 3
Type: Potentially Unwanted Application


YourOptimizer — a program that promises to rid your computer of various issues, but can it deliver? You will find this out by reading this article. Our researchers have classified it as a potentially unwanted program because of its uselessness and suggest that you remove it. This application is not malicious, but we think that it is a scam program because its detections have no basis, and it shows no information about its findings, but wants you to purchase the license key to fix the detected problems. Therefore, we invite you to read this description as it features the most important information about this application.

First of all, this application is suspicious because it comes from an unknown developer. YourOptimizer has a dedicated distribution website at Youroptimizerpro.com that has no information about this program’s origins. Nevertheless, we have managed to find that this program’s publishers come from Russia and they have a website at Digital-wayrussia.com that is currently down. However you can contact their tech support with any questions you have via Youroptimizerpro.com, but do not get surprised when you do not get a response to your inquiry.

Furthermore, we believe that this application might come bundled with other applications that may be legitimate, but in most cases they fall into the potentially unwanted programs category. In any case, you might find YourOptimizer on some low-grade freeware distributing website that makes money by bundling free programs with adware, potentially unwanted program and so on. To avoid installing such programs make sure always to opt for advanced installation settings and remove all undesirable software by unchecking its respective checkbox. So as you can see, this program comes from an unknown company and comes bundled with borderline-legitimate software and these facts do not make this program reliable in any way. Now let us discuss this application’s functions.

YourOptimizer’s promotional campaign claims that it can “Restore your PC to top speed,” “Delete unnecessary files,” “Makes releasable space,” and so on. This is all well and good, but all of this comes at a price. This program’s website states that it costs $9.99 USD which is not a lot, but consider the fact that you would be buying a useless application. It features a function called The Cleanup Tool that scans for damaged registry keys, junk files, and Internet junk (which might mean browser cookies, and so on.) However, it does not provide any details about its findings which make it suspicious. The scan results in hundreds of issues which might compel you to try and fix the mysterious issues. However, this requires a license key to activate the app and fix the problems.

Furthermore, YourOptimizer features The Startup Manager function that does not seem to work, but it appears that it should allow you to manage the programs that are launched automatically. In other words, it enables you to disable a certain application that cannot be disabled using a program’s settings. For example, it should be able to disable Java Update Schedule that always runs in the background. However, if you have Windows 8/8.1 or 10 as your operating system, then you can go to the Task Manager and manage program startup from there. Thus rendering this program’s Startup Manager obsolete. Also, this program is set to promote a tech support phone number 1-844-352-5606 which is configured to be toll-free, but that might not be the case. We would not be surprised if it were actually premium toll. However, we do not recommend that you try to find out.

All in all, it is clear that purchasing YourOptimizer is pointless because it will not provide you with a reliable service that you can trust to keep your computer’s system in good condition. It is very simple, almost primitive, and requires you to buy it if you want to see it go to work. However, there is no way to tell whether it does anything because it does not provide information about its detections. So if you have YourOptimizer on your computer, then feel free to remove it using our guide.
