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

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.
I contacted the company directly and they provided me a speedy fix.

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:
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.

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,
PC Utilities Pro Support Team
