Advanced File Optimizer

Advanced File Optimizer Description

The Advanced File Optimizer is a tool that is marketed to help the user manage file types and programs on their PC more efficiently. According to its official page at Advancedfileoptimizer.com the Advanced File Optimizer software is able to provide advanced functionality regarding identifying unknown data formats and finding the proper program you need to open them. The Advanced File Optimizer software by Systweak Software Inc. is built around three modules:

  • Handling file associations
  • Easy scanning for unknown formats
  • Fix problems related to file formatting

The Advanced File Optimizer program has a trial version that is free for personal use. The trial version of Advanced File Optimizer allows users to identify conflicts on the system that stem from bad file associations. You will need to open Advancedfileoptimizer.com and buy a commercial license for 12.36 EUR/13 USD if you wish to address the issues found by Advanced File Optimizer. The Advanced File Optimizer application may help users find the appropriate program to open data containers such as .OBJ, .MHT and .PEF. However, Advanced File Optimizer is deemed as a Potentially Unwanted program (PUP) that may display numerous notifications on your desktop to urge you to buy a commercial license, as well as present users with promotional offers from partners.

Advanced File Optimizer may use messages colored in bright red colors accompanied by audio alerts and claim that your system is slowed down and in critical condition. Experts note that improper file association cannot cause significant system problems and the Advanced File Optimizer may not perform as best as you are lead to believe. You might want to remove Advanced File Optimizer from your machine and explore the options provided by Windows OS within the 'Windows can't open the file' dialog box.
