Windows Optimization Center Description

ScreenshotWindows Optimization Center is a rogue computer security program which uses clever actions to entice unwary computer users to purchase of a full version of Windows Optimization Center. Windows Optimization Center is nothing more than another fake optimization tool currently circulating over the internet. The rogue program is somewhat similar to other fake optimization programs such as Disk Repair.

Windows Optimization Center is created and marketed by cybercrooks with the intent of extorting money from computer users who succumb to Windows Optimization Center's clever antics. When Windows Optimization Center is installed it displays annoying false alert messages attempting to warn you of hard disk errors and even offer Windows Optimization Center as a solution to those issues.

The big catch is that Windows Optimization Center is not able to fix those issues even if you were to purchase the full version of the corrupt program. Windows Optimization Center should be avoided at all costs and it is suggested that you use a spyware removal tool to delete this rogue at once. The longer that Windows Optimization Center is installed on your computer, the higher the risk of damaging the compromised computer.
