OnrymSpeedup is yet another rogue program that tries to trick people out of their hard-earned money. The application promotes itself as a useful tool that can deliver a noticeable bump in the performance of users' computers. It claims to both optimize the Windows OS to run faster and be more stable while also protecting it.
Unfortunately, almost none of this information turns out to be true. Once installed, OnrymSpeedup pretends to run a scan of the system. However, what it shows, are false positives and fake alerts or warnings. It may even flag benign files as being extremely threatening. In short, none of the information provided by OnrymSpeedup can be trusted. The application will then try to convince the user to buy its full or premium version as this is the only way to resolve the supposed issues.
Fake system optimizers such as OnrymSpeedup have been around for decades. However, they are nowhere near as popular as they once were. Even though, as this application shows clearly, some unscrupulous people might still try to deploy these old schemes even nowadays. If you already have OnrymSpeedup installed on your computer, it is recommended to remove it as soon as possible. After all, it is an application that doesn't bring any value to the users. You might want to still do a thorough scan of the device with a professional anti-malware solution, though, just make sure that no other similarly dubious PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) are present on it.
