PC Optimizer Pro

Posted: July 20, 2011

PC Optimizer Pro Screenshot 1PC Optimizer Pro's downloaded links are stuffed with fake reviews that praise PC Optimizer Pro's optimization features, but PC Optimizer Pro is, in reality, a rogue registry cleaner that has no real features to offer your PC. Attempting to use file-shredding services or other PC Optimizer Pro features will result in unusual errors appearing and may even harm Windows. Trying to purchase PC Optimizer Pro would be a waste of your money, even if PC Optimizer Pro worked, since the criminals behind PC Optimizer Pro will avoid sending you a functional activation code. Our research team recommends deleting PC Optimizer Pro with appropriate threat-removal software, as soon as it's practical to do so.

Keeping PC Optimizer Pro Away from Your PC

PC Optimizer Pro doesn't have any currently-known clones and doesn't bear a strong visual resemblance to other rogue security program families, such as the group of fake anti-virus programs that include Windows Inviolability System and Windows Armament Master, or the family of rogue defraggers that include System Repair and Windows Repair. However, in sheer behavior, PC Optimizer Pro is as good as identical to most other rogue programs.

The following are the three most likely ways of becoming infected with PC Optimizer Pro:

  • Being attacked by a Trojan that specializes in installing rogue software. These Trojans include Zlob and Fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert, both of which are known for disguising themselves as fake codec updates.
  • Visiting a website that's linked to PC Optimizer Pro or other scamware products. The most prominently-visible of these PC Optimizer Pro websites include pcoptimizerpro.com, pcoptimizerreview.com and pcoptimizerproreview.com. Our team of malware analysts has found that these websites, in addition to presenting highly inaccurate information that makes PC Optimizer Pro look like a great product, also universally abuse search engine algorithms to jam themselves up into the top of your search results. Deliberately downloading PC Optimizer Pro isn't always necessary, since these websites may employ drive-by-download scripts to force you to install PC Optimizer Pro.
  • Downloading PC Optimizer Pro from a general software website. You may make this mistake after seeing a large number of five-star reviews for PC Optimizer Pro, but these fake reviews don't offer the honest analysis of PC Optimizer Pro that the one-star reviews and our own team of malware specialists will give you.

PC Optimizer Pro – the Registry Cleaner That Makes Cleans You Out of Your Cash

In spite of not being a clone of previously-known rogue programs, PC Optimizer Pro displays little originality in PC Optimizer Pro's attacks. Once you've installed PC Optimizer Pro, trying to use PC Optimizer Pro's features may look like something is getting done, but PC Optimizer Pro has no real file-shredding, registry-cleaning or anti-spyware functions. PC Optimizer Pro will pretend to scan your Windows Registry without your permission and then pretend to fix a small selection of the 'errors' PC Optimizer Pro makes up, thus forcing you to buy PC Optimizer Pro to fix the entirety of these made-up problems.

Our research team found that PC Optimizer Pro is noteworthy in one way – in the fact that the criminals that designed PC Optimizer Pro are too lazy to even fake a real registration feature! Although PC Optimizer Pro desperately wants you to waste forty dollars on registering PC Optimizer Pro, any registration code will return as invalid, if the fake company behind PC Optimizer Pro even bothers to give you a code in the first place.

In addition to stealing your money, PC Optimizer Pro will also try to harvest your email address and other personal information. If you've accidentally purchased or used PC Optimizer Pro, changing your email address, revoking the fraudulent charge and switching credit cards are all advisable.
