Optimum PC Boost is a questionable program, which can also be called as 'scareware'. We say so because it promises to improve computer's speed by eliminating old registry entries, removing programs' leftovers and fulfilling other seemingly beneficial tasks. However, after testing Optimum PC Boost virus on several of our computers, we found that it can hardly do any of these activities without purchasing its licensed version. Also, once you spend $29.97 on its license, you can clearly see that this program removes only one part of old registry entries and that can hardly increase computer's speed. Also, it may start displaying annoying pop-up notifications and cause other activities that initiate serious doubts about the real expectations of this program and its developers. We highly recommend you to think twice before downloading Optimum PC Boost on your computer or purchasing its licensed version.
