MaxPerforma Optimizer Description
The Maxperforma Optimizer is a Registry cleaner whose marketing pronounces can optimize your PC’s performance. While the Maxperforma Optimizer is not an outright rogue system optimizer or other type of scamware, the Maxperforma Optimizer is unlikely to provide the benefits its company claims, and also bundles itself with at least one toolbar, the SafeSearch Toolbar, which may be considered a minor browser hijacker. You should make your own decision about whether you’re interested in the Maxperforma Optimizer and any related products, and, if not, use appropriate security programs for deleting the Maxperforma Optimizer and all related programs, and getting your browser back to its default state.
Why Maximum PC Performance is in the Eye of the Beholder
Less invested malware researchers could be forgiven for mistaking the Maxperforma Optimizer for scamware due to its format, which strongly resembles that of a typical rogue system cleaner. However, unlike a fake system cleaner, the Maxperforma Optimizer provides genuine features for removing unwanted data entries that clutter up your Registry, along with other system components. If the Maxperforma Optimizer can be said to be guilty of anything, it’s of claiming that its features will provide major quality of life changes in your computer’s performance. In all but the most severe cases, malware experts find that these casual system-cleaning utilities can’t provide the same kind of substantial performance boosts that would be found by, for example, upgrading your PC’s RAM.
Besides its grandiose marketing and slightly invasive methodology, Maxperforma Optimizer also bundles its installer with that of a second program, the PUP known as the SafeSearch Toolbar. The SafeSearch Toolbar claims to provide some protection against Web-based PC threats, although malware researchers didn’t find the SafeSearch Toolbar capable of doing anything that shouldn’t be covered with standard anti-malware suites. In the process of blocking sites that the SafeSearch Toolbar thinks of as being threatening, the SafeSearch Toolbar also may redirect your browser to unwanted websites, which, obviously, isn’t an advantage for your online experience.
Optimizing Your Browser Differently from the Maxperforma Optimizer’s Opinion
The Maxperforma Optimizer and the SafeSearch Toolbar both can be thought of as Potentially Unwanted Programs that aren’t much of a benefit to your computer, but malware researchers currently find no reasons to consider them harmful software. In the worst case scenarios, changes to your system or browser made by either of these two programs may cause minor security or, ironically, performance issues. Unless external factors begin causing alarm, you should feel free to determine, for yourself, whether deleting the Maxperforma Optimizer or letting the Maxperforma Optimizer stay installed is best for your machine.
Removing the Maxperforma Optimizer and all other PUPs should be left up to anti-malware programs or similar security products that have proven histories against unwanted software. While not a threat, the Maxperforma Optimizer may fail to remove all of its files and system changes, particularly with respect to the accompanying browser add-on. Trusting an actual security product to do the job, instead, is what malware experts consider a preferable way of being rid of the Maxperforma Optimizer’s questionable optimizations.
