Dear Computer Lady,
My computer has a program on it that I cannot delete. I hope you can help me.
The program is OptimizerPro v3.2.
Thank you, Yvonne
PC Optimizer Pro is a registry cleaning program that usually sneaks into your computer along with a free utility that you might have downloaded.
Once on your computer, PC Optimizer Pro will claim that it found issues on your computer, and you will have to purchase the full version before it will fix them. The problem is that many of these scan results are fake, and most of the tasks that it claims to do for you can also be done with free utilities that come with Windows.
You should be able to remove it using the control Panel app, “Uninstall a program”. If that is not working, you should really bring the computer to your local repair shop and have them take a look at it. You might be infected with multiple malware and adware programs.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
