Editors' review

This utility is merely another tool that removes the usual detritus from your system, but it lacks many expected options. PC Optimizer's basic interface consists of a few function buttons and a small text window. The broken text instructs users to merely press Next to start optimizing their systems. That's simple enough for even the most novice user, but savvier users will be disappointed to find there's no explanation of what takes place during the process.

PC Optimizer basically cleans out your Internet Explorer auto complete list and history, temporary files, and cleans out your Recycle Bin and index.dat. It also closes many processes. All in the name of placing your PC in the minimal CPU usage state. The program also has a simple check box set options to close all applications at startup, shut down the system after a user-selected idle period, block the Internet during selected hours, or shut down systems at a preset time. An Application Manager does make it easy to block selected programs from running. It takes just a moment to browse for the program's executable and to add it to the list.

This application's features work, but a junk file remover, a shutdown scheduler, and a simple application blocker doesn't exactly optimize a system. We've found many more robust and efficient tools in this genre. However, give PC Optimizer a test if you're in the market for just those specific utilities. It shouldn't take the full 21-day trial period to see if it works for you.

    "Extreme Caution in using PC Performer"

    August 09, 2014   |   By asbutz

    Version: PC Performance Optimizer 1

    Pros

    Absolutely none except daily harassment by the program which attached itself to other applications. Downloader/Buyer beware.

    Cons

    My PC was slowing down and due to my indiscriminate install and uninstall of programs I ended up with occasional crashes and registry errors hence free download of PC Performer because of CNET 5 star reviews (bogus?) and the Microsoft Partnership (bogus again?) since anybody can claim anything they want to. Once I downloaded the program it stated that I had over 16 out dated drivers and over 560 system errors which changed from day to day. I uninstalled PC Performer thinking that was the last of it but alas just like a Horror Show it was BACK and this time I was unable to uninstall the new PC Performer program that attached itself to my PC. I finally found a uninstall program that told me step by step how to remove the zillions of infected files and happily I am now free of all PC Performer attachments and attacks.

    Summary

    Do not believe any claims, affiliations or reviews made by programs.
    I do have a new program that I purchased (cheaper than PC Performer) which at first I skipped over in preference to PC Performer (dumb move) and my PC is running smoothly, registry errors are fixed and the program scans my PC after midnight each day so no unwanted scan pop ups unless I want to do a scan.
