What is Win PC Optimizer?
Win PC Optimizer seems to be a rogue PC’s optimization tool. It’s supposed to speed up and clean your PC, fix errors, help to protect privacy and so on; however, in reality it can hardly initiate all these activities. It seems that it’s mainly used for generating income for its developers (WinPCOptimizer, Inc.) by making people pay money for this program. Of course, you may install a trial version of this app from the official website or you may buy it for a considerable amount of money right there as well. Unfortunately, it may also infiltrate your computer bundled with another freeware. No matter how it manages to get inside the system, it may initiate continuous system scans and inform you about various system errors. Do not believe in those alerts blindly because they are mainly used for scaring you into thinking that your PCs needs to be fixed. If you click ‘FixAll’ button, you will immediately be redirected to the official website of this program and will be asked to buy its license key. We highly do not recommend doing that because you will spend money for a useless program and may even disclose your credit card details to suspicious third parties.
