ScreenshotMemory Optimizer is an application that is known to mimic programs designed to defragment a PC's hard drive in an attempt to boost performance. Memory Optimizer does not have the ability to improve the performance of a PC nor will it detect any computer issues that could be the hindrance of normal operation. Instead, Memory Optimizer was created by hackers with the intent to extort money from computer users. This method usually takes place after installation of Memory Optimizer through false popup alerts and system warning messages. These notifications are basically a scare tactic to persuade purchase of a full Memory Optimizer program.

Little do the computer users know, the full version of Memory Optimizer is not able to detect or eliminate issues on a PC that would decrease performance. Memory Optimizer is somewhat similar to another rogue optimization program called FastDisk. It is highly suggested that Memory Optimizer, along with other fake optimization programs, be detected and safely removed with a spyware removal tool to ensure the affected PC is not damaged.
