What is Advanced System Optimizer?
Advanced System Optimizer (possible versions – 2, 3, v.3.5) by Systweak Inc. is promoted as a PC optimization tool. It is supposed to allow users to deactivate unnecessary processes from running on startup, remove outdated registries, fix a potential damage, and so on. The 2nd version of this tool has been released in 2004 and was definitely successful. More than million users have left positive feedback and recommended using this optimizer. However, it seems that these days its developers apply unfair marketing strategies seeking to increase the rate of Advanced System Optimizer Version 3 and v.3.5 users. Typically, a trial is attached to various freewares and sharewares as an ‘additional component’ and hidden under Advanced/Custom settings. This way, it may get installed on your machine without asking for an appropriate permission. That’s why it has been labeled as a potentially unwanted program (PUP).
While the program is legitimate and trustful, users commonly decide to keep it installed even though they haven’t downloaded it willingly. However, you should keep in mind that the version that is spread by bundling is just a trial, which will not do anything except continuously check your computer, inform about various issues, and urge to pay the money ($49.95) for the full version. Continuous system scans may not only burden and slow down your PC’s system, but may also annoy you to death. Therefore, we highly recommend you to remove Advanced System Optimizer virus (using, for instance, Reimage) if it has entered your PC via software package.
