Optimizer Pro Speed Guard

Posted: May 31, 2012

Optimizer Pro Speed Guard is a PUP system optimizer that promises to be capable of cleaning your PC and tune up its performance, but Optimizer Pro Speed Guard's real functions all are for the purpose of imitating the detection of thousands of fictitious infections and related computer problems. Trying to remove any of these detected threats via Optimizer Pro Speed Guard merely will redirect you to a purchase form for Optimizer Pro Speed Guard's registered version, which is just as lacking in system-optimization features as the free version. SpywareRemove.com malware researchers aren't in the habit of recommending that anyone purchase faulty software, and Optimizer Pro Speed Guard joins the hefty list of rogue system optimizer as a minor but definitively malicious program that should be deleted on sight.

Optimizer Pro Speed Guard: A Digital Slacker on Guard Duty

Optimizer Pro Speed Guard may be introduced by itself or as part of a bundle with another program (such as specially-modified and unofficial freeware versions of Winzip), but usually is not seen as part of a payload from a drive-by-download or other type of non-consensual installation. Whichever way you might have acquired Optimizer Pro Speed Guard, its symptoms always are the same, with pop-up warnings and system scans that display intentionally misleading contents. A very typical scan from Optimizer Pro Speed Guard usually will detect fake system optimization issues in the range of eight thousand or even more – but these supposed system problems can't be detected by any other programs... since they don't exist.

Even though Optimizer Pro Speed Guard clearly is a fake PC optimization tool along the same lines as PC Speed Maximizer, Safe PC Cleaner, SpeedMaxPC, XP Security Cleaner Pro or PC Health Kit, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers were happy to find that Optimizer Pro Speed Guard doesn't make a severe effort to impede your normal computer usage. Optimizer Pro Speed Guard won't block other programs or hijack your web browser – but it still will attempt to wrench your money under false pretenses and should be considered malicious, albeit only as a low-level PC threat.

The Optimal Way to Remove this Fake Optimizer

Optimizer Pro Speed Guard does display itself from the Windows Control Panel, and seemingly can be removed via it, but doing so doesn't remove most of the essential components of Optimizer Pro Speed Guard – which will continue to launch automatically and generate its fake scans without your permission. To remove Optimizer Pro Speed Guard completely, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers encourage using reliable anti-malware products that have good histories for finding and deleting malicious software that resists being uninstalled. You also should consider scanning your PC for additional malware, particularly in any scenario where you didn't install Optimizer Pro Speed Guard intentionally since such cases can be symptomatic of trojan downloaders like Zlob.
