It can be difficult to distinguish between the genuine system optimizers and the devious fake rogue defragmenters which are only out to make a quick buck off consumers. In the case of Memory Optimizer, there is no mistaken this seditious rogue for what it truly is. Memory Optimizer is a clone from the infamous family of rogues which include Memory Fixer, Good Memory, and Disk Defragmenter. From this evidence alone it is clear that you will want to erase Memory Optimizer from your PC as soon as possible in the interest of preventing permanent damage from occurring to your system.
Although Memory Optimizer’s appearance on the web is new, it is a completely unoriginal fake defragmenter as it makes use of the very same strategies and formats of its predecessors in its assault on its victims’ systems. This is especially worrisome when you consider that Memory Optimizer will stop at nothing to complete its ultimate goal of ripping the consumer off, even if that means causing irrecoverable damage to its victims’ systems.
Memory Optimizer is delivered onto the system by way of furtive Trojans. These Trojans enter the system unbeknown to the PC owner, and will remain hidden until Memory Optimizer decides to reveal itself to the user. Fake online malware scanners and seditious browser hijackers remain the most popular form of distribution for Memory Optimizer and similar rogues’ Trojans.
Once Memory Optimizer deems it the correct time, it will reveal itself by making use of various fake security alerts. These fake alerts will report on various errors supposedly crippling the system. This is done with two purposes in mind, the first being Memory Optimizer’s attempt to panic the user into believing his system is behaving erratically and is under threat. The second motivation behind Memory Optimizer’s use of fake alerts is to place itself in a position of authority in the user’s eyes, making it easier to scam the consumer out of his hard earned money. All of Memory Optimizer’s security notifications are fake, and should never be acted upon. Some of the more severe fake notifications used by Memory Optimizer include the following:
"Low Disk Space
"Windows - No Disk
Obviously none of these fake alerts can be trusted, and users are urged to accept all correspondence received from Memory Optimizer as highly suspect and suspicious. The only way you will be able to protect your PC against the imminent danger posed by this infection will be to completely eradicate Memory Optimizer from the system. This can easily be done by making use of the removal power of a genuine security tool which will not only detect and destroy Memory Optimizer, but also provide future protection against similar rogues.
