What is PC Optimizer Pro?

PC Optimizer Pro is a rogue system optimizer which we have decided to classify as malware. This virus claims to be legitimate program, which is capable of increasing security of the system and protecting computer. Nevertheless, you should not take these words for granted because they are very misleading and may even lead you to the loss of your money. PC optimizer Pro is related to another program called Fake Antivirus. These products are FAKE and you should never buy them. Yes, that's what they seek. How do they do that? In most of the cases, they rely on misleading tactics that seek to scare PC users and then to make them purchase their full or licensed versions. That's why this program starts scanning the system as soon as it enters it. After doing so, PC optimizer Pro virus states that some of the legal and essential windows files are infected. In order to get ability to remove them, you are supposed to purchase its licensed version. However, that's what we don't recommend because it's a straight way to the money loss. All these alerts, warnings and found infections are fake. Please do not purchase this program.  Here are the examples of PC Optimizer Pro warnings:

This virus is mostly distributed through infected websites and through the use of the trojans or system exploits. So, in order to avoid it, you have to stay away from illegal websites and download updated anti-spyware, which could help you to detect all suspicious programs before their infiltration. Finally, we would like to recommend you avoiding fake alerts that are either trying to check your computer for free or to update some of your programs.

In addition, this program may try to change browser settings, connect itself to the internet, stay resident in the background and block access to legitimate anti-virus and anti-spyware programs.

Comments on Pc Optimizer Pro

The unbelievable @ssholes that made this software should be hunted down and executed like diseased vermin.
This software is not allowing me to log in to my computer - how do I get rid of this with no access to my computer??
EVERY positive post about PC Optimizer is posted by PC Op themselves. Think about it, it acts just like a virus. Theres a good reason for that. Duuuu!!!! Dont be fooled by the positive feedback. What do you think you will get if you give money to a scammer??? Use your brain people!!!

PC optimizer pro worked good for me. It cleaned up all the junk from my computer. My computer is working better than ever.Plus there are no pop ups by the software, which usually causes aggravation. I would recommend this application.
Cool software,having multiple utilities and cleaning the pc as expected.Thanks!
Today, just a few hours ago I bought a new high class gaming computer. Installed everything that was pre-installed but needed updates. Before I could even think of install anti-virus pgm I got this message; Youve got 1335 illegal hits from internet, and Ive just started installing everything, without entering internet by my own... Phew... Thougt win 8 had some kind of protection against these animals
i have paid for his software and it worked good and made my pc faster, and it disapeared hehe, wft is going on, now it is a virus, that is hard to imagine

Best way is very simple, Get the program called revo uninstall, It is not an anti viruse, however it scan your computer from hell and back and get rid of any affiliated programs of the the one you are trying to delete. it has a force delete which impale the programs to do anything against you getting rid of it.
I followed Sams advice, but I had a problem deleting the .dll file and the program file (2 separate files in the folder for Optimizer Pro). I clicked on each item separately and then chose the "shred" option using my McAFee Internet Security program. Once I shreddred the two files, I then shredded the folder, too. I was then prompted to reboot my computer to remove the remaining items related to this spyware. On reboot of my computer, the spyware was gone. Hope this works for other people.
