I installed a program called Win PC Optimizer yesterday which I thought it can help me protect my computer from virus attacks. But it is too late for me to realize that I’m wrong. Now I can’t not be able to remove it from my computer, I have this stuff pops up all the time, as soon as I open any program it pops up before I can take any action. I am a complete novice and don’t know much at all about this stuff. What should I do now? Please help!
Brief Introduction to Win PC Optimizer
At the very beginning when people know this Win PC Optimizer, they can barely relate it to a computer virus. It can be really hard for all users to notice that as simply from the name of it we can judge that it is a program for Windows computers to use and it sounds like a software that can deal with system optimization. The name of this program can be really confusing. By using this name, many people can be lured to download this program to their machines. As soon as people install this program to their computers, it can be activated and start to work at once. The scan result of this program can alert people that there are many computer issues that need to be fixed, otherwise, their systems will be in great troubles.
The Screenshot of This Program
So, is this Win PC Optimizer reliable? Can we trust its warning messages? The answer can be negative. There are many computer users complain about this program on the Internet. They claim that this program gives them nothing good except asking them to pay money to activate this program. Some people who pay to activation fee find that this program cannot protect their systems as once they pay the money, all the warning messages disappear. After that, even other kinds of viruses have been detected by another anti-virus program installed on the same computers, this program shows everything is fine. How can this happen?

No matter what program people try to open, this virus program can always pop up. That can be really annoying. People must not trust anything about it as all the messages it shows are not real at all.
