What is SPCOptimizer?
SPCOptimizer is a PC optimization tool that promises to boost the performance of the computer. It is said that it is going to do that by cleaning up the unused files, cookies, programs that run silently in the background, and other components that do not do anything good but occupy the space on the computer. Also, it is said that SPCOptimizer “focuses on providing the error free, safer browsing, faster computing and quicker booting of the system.” The description of the application is very appealing; however, specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com have noticed at the beginning of their research that SPCOptimizer is not a perfect application. It has been revealed that SPCOptimizer is a very buggy program, which means that it might crash, freeze, and do not work properly. It acts the same no matter you get it from its official website spcoptimizer.com or it finds a different way to enter your computer. Unfortunately, the fact that SPCOptimizer has bugs is not its only drawback. Read this article carefully to find out more about this PC optimizer. This report should also help you to decide whether or not to let it stay on the system.
What does SPCOptimizer do?
If you install SPCOptimizer on your computer, it will really scan your system and delete browsing history, cookies, temporary files, memory dumps, and other components. It does that to free-up the space on the computer and thus improve its performance. At first glance, SPCOptimizer works really well; however, specialists still have some doubts regarding its usefulness. They say that the deletion of such tiny components as cookies or empty registry keys might not boost the speed of the computer at all. In addition, specialists doubt that these scan results can be trusted blindly. Furthermore, research has shown that this potentially unwanted application connects to the Internet from time to time. As it is capable of doing that, it means that it might download updates automatically too. Not all the programs become better after they install updates, so be careful.
Where does SPCOptimizer come from?
The SPCOptimizer PC optimization tool has an official website spcoptimizer.com, and it can be downloaded from there; however, not all the users remember downloading an application recently, so we suspect that this program might be spread somehow differently too. For example, it is very likely that it travels in software bundles as well. Users often get these bundles when they try to download an application from an untrustworthy P2P, torrent, or another web page. Even though SPCOptimizer is spread in these software bundles too, we cannot say that it enters computers secretly like much more serious computer infections because users are informed about the software that is going to be installed on the computer. Of course, this might be written in small letters, so not all the users notice the information provided for them. Yes, you are right – potentially unwanted programs are not the only ones that can sneak onto your computer if you are careless while browsing the web and do not have a security tool installed on the system, so you need to be very careful!
