Windows Optimization Center Image

Windows Optimization Center is a misleading computer security application created by cyber criminals. Windows Optimization Center can enter a PC via Trojans, drive-by downloads or an unsuspecting user that downloads it from the internet. On infiltrating a computer system Windows Optimization Center will produce a system scanner which is set to automatically report the detection of several system errors. The errors are typically found in the memory or hard drive and according the security alerts displayed, Windows Optimization Center is the only tool that can fix those errors.

The scan reports and security alerts displayed by Windows Optimization Center are fake and best to be ignored. Windows Optimization Center can neither detect nor repair computer errors; the last thing this rogue will do is optimize your system's performance. Windows Optimization Center will cause more damage than good to your system therefore it is advisable to have it removed upon detection.ScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshot
