WHAT IS SPEEDOPTIMIZERGURU?
Speed Optimizer Guru is a deceptive application that claims to optimize the performance of your system, while in reality it is a rather dangerous application to have on your computer.

However, while its description may sound really promising, a revealing fact is that it is actually distributed together with some adware-type applications like Arcade Yum, PlusVid and Reimage. Therefore, this program is categorized as Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) and you are better off such programs disturbing your computer’s performance. What is more, not only it will not protect your computer against unwanted programs, it will expose you to more of them as it employs a platform by Shefa Media Ltd. that will load various ads on your browser. Therefore, you will see various sponsored ads, deals, offers, banners, pop-ups, plug-ins, add-ons, underlined words in texts that will be flashing on your screen. What is more, applications like that are usually installed together with cookies.
