What is Super Optimizer?

Super Optimizer is a rogue software that claims to optimize a computer: accelerate it’s performance and solve existing errors. When installed, it makes changes to the Windows Registry so that the program starts automatically every time the computer is turned on. It then scans the system and tells the user some problems and threats have been detected. However, to fix the issues user will be required to purchase Super Optimizer’s full version first. Furthermore, specialists say that these results are questionable and might very well be fake, making that purchase a waste of user’s money. It also has been noted that this application not only fails to improve computer performance, but in fact worsen it. Learn how to remove Super Optimizer from Windows.
