PC Optimizer Pro Removal Manual

PC Optimizer Pro is promoted as a registry cleaner and optimization tool, but it is, in fact, a rogue system optimizer. PC Optimizer Pro can be downloaded online, but it is often promoted via bundled downloads of freeware and shareware. PC Optimizer Pro will first perform a full PC scan on the infected computer and then display various pop-up notifications and security risk alerts. In order to fix those issues, the user is asked to purchase the full version of the software. As the notifications PC Optimizer Pro displays doubtfully contain any true information, the users are not advised to purchase the product.

What Does PC Optimizer Pro Do?

The rogue program uses many tactics to enter the user’s PC. It is often delivered via bundled downloads or with the help of other fake online malware scanners or browser hijackers. Once in the system, PC Optimizer Pro performs a full system scan and displays numerous alerts about non-existing security issues.
Here is an example of such a warning:

→“Attention! Suspicious software activity is detected by PC Optimizer Pro on your computer. Please start system files scanning for details.”

Using scare tactics to lure users into buying the licensed version of the product is a common strategy among creators of rogue programs. PC Optimizer Pro even reports about infections in some of the essential Windows files, without which the system becomes unstable. The notifications and alerts should not be trusted, and users are urged to remove this rogue system optimizer immediately.

It is also possible that PC Optimizer Pro blocks other applications on the compromised computer and reports them as infected. Experts warn that PC Optimizer Pro may also alter the settings of the current browser or block access to legitimate anti-virus programs.
