Driver Performer is a rogue system optimization application that attempts to trick attacked PC users into purchasing a full version of a software product to repair supposed registry errors and hard drive issues. Driver Performer states to enhance the computer's speed by removing unnecessary entries on the hardware. Once installed on a corrupted PC, Driver Performer will be configured to run automatically every time a computer user starts Windows. Driver Performer will then press the victimized PC user to scan the computer to check it for potential security threats and system errors. Driver Performer will then detect numerous computer threats and system errors that it declares it cannot fix until the PC user purchases the security program. Driver Performer is not capable of detecting or removing any hard drive problems and system errors. The main purpose of Driver Performer is to dupe affected computer users into spending money on the so-called full version of bogus security tool. Driver Performer will also display fake error messages to announce the target PC user that the computer has been infected with various security threats. Do not believe anything related to Driver Performer because it is not a reliable system optimizer. Driver Performer should be removed from the targeted PC with a decent anti-malware application.
