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.

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.

Uninstall Optimizer Pro

Dec 10 23:44
I wish to uninstall your program because it is adversely affecting the use of my computer.
I cannot uninstall the program via the Control Panel as I keep getting the following message:
Error
Messages files "C:Program Files (x86)Optimizer Prounins000.msg" is missing. Please correct the problem or obtain a new copy of the program.
I have tried downloading the program again; however, that fails to help.
Suggestions?

Thank you for reaching out.
Please go into the file where the "unins000.msg" file is supposed to be. Once you find it, there should be an .exe named "unins000.exe". Right-click on the .exe and rename it to "unins000.msg".
After that, uninstall the software manually, Go to Start menu>Programs folder and you will find Optimizer Pro/Driver Pro/LiveSupport. Click on Uninstall Optimizer Pro/Driver Pro/LiveSupport. Or try with the other option for uninstall: Go to Control panel>Programs and features, find Optimizer Pro/Driver Pro/LiveSupport and double click on it.
Please write back in case you need further assistance.
Kind regards,

Well, I think PC Optimizer Pro is a useful software and uninstalling it was never a problem. But why would you uninstall such a useful application. It cleans Internet junk, cache, cookies, etc. to save valuable disk space, then it revives your Windows registry by cleaning invalid entries and missing file references, etc. Its very handy and my antivirus programs never show it as any malware or something. You must try PC Optimizer Pro to see the diffference in your PCs speed and perofrmance. Its wowsome tool I would say.

Hi Sam;
I exhausted all the methods posted for removal of "PC Optimizer Pro" which was packaged with a download for Dugi addon installer for the game World of Warcraft, by CNET. I have the PRO version of Malwarebytes and the NORTON AV 360 program. Neither of them would strike the program. I used the installed "Change/Uninstall" command for my OS (Windows 7.0 Ultimate) to no avail as I was prompted that the "uninstal000 file was missing. When I read your post to manually delete the entire folder from my Programs folder, I laughed. That is until I tried it. Kudoos!!! to you. It worked just fine. Thank You.

I bought AVG three days ago, but I didnt see anything about PC Optimizer Pro being installed with it. Im aware that AVG has teamed up with other partners and there are several program trial versions that came with it and which keeps popping up telling me to buy them. How sad, AVG used to be one of the "good guys", but this almost makes me regret I payed for another year.

As for the effectiveness of PC Optimizer Pro there seem to be some who are critical. I guess its also a question of personal preference and needs. Personally I want the best I can get for a decent price and Im going to look elsewhere - if for nothing else then because I hate being spammed with intimidating pop-ups telling me the safety of my machine is in serious jeopardy.

Also, this version of PC Optimizer Pro doesnt fix anything, it only tells you all the reasons they found for you to buy the software. And why doesnt it take effect right away along with AVG? I bought and installed AVG two days ago but it wasnt until today that PC Optimizer Pro wanted to make changes to my computer (though it ran yesterday, but without fixing anything, as mentioned above).--If everything about this program is really legit as you put it, it certainly does a bad job of making itself understood.

I had it in a computer for three years. I read all these stories and uninstalled it the normal easy way you automatically uninstall any program. If it were a virus, any good virus remover would remove it. Since virus removers dont regard it as a virus, I dont see how it could be one.

Just selected the "Post Comment" for this forum, and guess what, I got a PC Optimizer Flash Ad. Just too much.
Anyway, I tried to delete,etc, but I keep getting message: "unins000.dat" does not exist. Cannot uninstall.
Should I try using AdwCleaner or Malwarebytes, or what?
So tired of all this stuff...

Ive had Opt Pro on my computer for at least a year. I love it and my comp was happy. Only reason I had to uninstall was because I sold the computer. I followed the uninstall suggestions at this link and it worked fine for me. http://www.pcutilitiespro.com/support/uninstall.php

Guys, I got infected with this crap too, for those who think this is legitimate software, think again, which commercial software has special routines to prevent from uninstalling ????

The easy way to get rid of this crappy software is to use spybot with administrator privileges, it takes a few minutes and a reboot and it is gone !!!
