We have recently discovered a new potentially unwanted program titled SpeedOptimizerGuru. This questionable application is presented as an all-around computer optimization tool that can do a lot of things and fix various system issues. However, we are not so sure about this program’s functions, because it does not provide any details about the problems that it is set to detect. If you have this application, then you might want to remove it and get another application, because SpeedOptimizerGuru is not free. In fact it costs a reasonable amount of money.
Its developers at SurfProtect.co have set up a website for this application called Speedoptimizer.guru. This website serves as a promotional website and it hosts a standalone download of SpeedOptimizerGuru. However, the website is not the only means of distribution of this program. We have received reports that it might be bundled with potentially unwanted programs, adware, and browser hijacker and put up for download on free software hosting websites. So in addition to getting this undesirable application, you might also get some genuine malware that, rest assured, will give you a hard time and might be quite hard to delete for people without the correct know-how. Therefore, we advise to keep away from freeware websites altogether.
Now, SpeedOptimizerGuru is supposed to clean, fix and repair your computers registry, eliminate security weaknesses caused by damaged data and software, prevent system crashes, magically optimize your browser, and remove junk files. This sounds very good on paper. But this application tries to cover way too much as some of its functions are almost always performed by dedicated programs. It is possible for a registry cleaner to clean your browser’s history and browser cookies, but it cannot repair files and especially replace them.
This program’s developers prey on novice PC users who might get scared after they see the number of issues that SpeedOptimizerGuru will find. You must be aware that that the scan results are unreliable, because the program does not present any information about them. It only presents the number and its determined severity. For example the supposed registry damage might just be values that were left after uninstalling a program. These issues do not have an impact of your systems performance, since a computer’s performance can degrade due to malware leeching its recourses. In any case, once the scan is complete the application will ask you to buy it, because only then it will fix all of the supposed issues. The developers at SurfProtect.co are clever, but this trick as been exploited many times in the past. Therefore, you should be cautious when it comes to programs, such as SpeedOptimizerGuru, and do you own research before buying an application.
Whether you want to buy or remove SpeedOptimizerGuru is completely up to you. It might actually resolve some issues, but we doubt that it will offer you the full package promoted on its website. If you insist on getting a similar application, try looking for free ones that do not contain advertisements. You can always run an application’s name by our website if you want to be sure that it is not just another potentially unwanted program.
