I just finished running Revo Uninstaller to remove Optimizer Pro from my computer.

During the process Optimizer Pro's webpage popped up asking if I was sure I wanted to remove it.

I simply closed the webpage.

Revo Unstaller supposedly removed Optimizer Pro from my system and found now orphan files

remaining to be cleaned up.

Having not taken any chances removing the program with Windows Control Panel

I have no way of knowing whether or not Windows would have affected the same result.

Regardless, I trust bleepingcomputer.com and am grateful for the assistance.

Hi -

Did you follow the last part of the given instructions on removing any remainders ?

 

¦ Once the program has searched for leftovers click Next.
¦ Check/tick the Bolded items only on the list then click Delete
¦ When prompted click on Yes and then on Next.
¦ Put a check on any folders that are found and select delete
¦ When prompted select Yes then on Next
¦ Once done click Finish.

 

This part is to clean out the remaining orphaned files -

 

Thank You -

In my original post, the word "now" was a typo.

It was supposed to read "no".  There were no orphaned files or folders to select.

I did run a "moderate" scan as suggested.  Perhaps I should have run the 

more thorough Advanced scan.  I did click the Next button after the scan.

There were no bold files to investigate.

Anyway, when I checked my start menu I found Orphan Pro still listed.

So I went to Control Panel and used Windows' "uninstall a program" feature.

Optimizer Pro was still listed.  Windows uninstalled the program.

(I have Win 7 Ultimate on my machine).  I was surprised that it was still able to uninstall

the program after Revo had been used for an uninstall.

 

I had another program, that I found, called Safe Save 1.74.  This time I ran Revo

using the Advanced scan.  Following the scan, again there were orphaned files.

These were in the form of desktop icon, and start menu folder and Icons.

Just innocuous stuff, but they were present just the same.

OK -

Optimizer pro was loosened by Revo and so it was easy to uninstall -

 

How are your problems now ?

 

Thanks -

Everything runs fine, thanks.

I like Revo.  As I familiarize myself with its features I find more and more valuable.

I ran a junk file scan a couple of times yesterday.

It led me to find a program that I had had to disable when I first bought my laptop.

The laptop had been a demo machine and had this program called Microsoft Digital Experience.

It's a program used by stores to lock the computer into demonstration mode.

 

Of course 90% of the junk files are temp files, most of which can be deleted without affecting performance

of their associated programs.  The jury is still out, however, on whether or not

one can simply delete them all without consequence.  Some suggest not removing

temp files less than two weeks old (other than ones you know for certain are part of some recent install

that you want completely uninstalled).

That sound's like good advice.  Gives you a margin for error.

Only Revo's Junk File scan doesn't display the date of the files it locates.

So I'd really like to see that feature added.

 

Anyway, I like Revo in that it is much less overwhelming and arduous to work with than CCleaner.

I use it in concert with Windows' uninstall programs.

First I run Revo to see what I want removed.

Then I give Windows the opportunity to prove its own self diagnostics and removal.

Then I rescan with Revo and would removing anything Windows missed with Revo. 

Hey, I'm a conservative.  So shoot me.

Hey, I'm a conservative.  So shoot me. < We all do need to be very wary of what we remove -

 

You can run these to clean out umwanted items also.

To remove smaller infections and unwanted Toollbars

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.

*Close all open programs and internet browsers.
*Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
*Click on Delete.
*Confirm each time with Ok.
* NOTE :Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.

*Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
*You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

 

 

To clean out the build up of Temp / Junk files Please download TFC, or Temp File Cleaner by Old Timer
Usage Instructions:

  • Download TFC from the download link above and save the file on your desktop.
  • Close ALL running applications as TFC will terminate them before attempting to clean up the temporary files.
  • Double-click on the TFC icon.
  • When the program opens, click on the Start button.  TFC will terminate the Explorer process and all running applications and then begin the process of cleaning out all of your temp folders.
  • When done, press OK to reboot your computer and finish the cleanup.

Note: Depending on how much data is currently stored in the Temp folders, this process can take quite a while to remove all of the files, so please be patient.

 

 

 

Thanks -

i don't know if this thread is still open but I would like to get help with the same malware, which is optimizer pro performance monitor. It first appeared this past week after downloading SKYPE.  

I have windows 7, Goole browser and use Chrome for my email.
