Hi, when I booted up this afternoon, I was greeted by a pop up from a site calling itself PC Optimiser Pro, telling me there were thousands of problems slowing my machine and offering to fix them. Given that it was an unsolicited pop up, I'm concerned it might itself be malware. It has even created itself a link from my desktop. Does anyone know anything about this and do I have anything to worry about?

Thanks!

Definitely unwanted piece of garbage.
Do you have an option to uninstall it?
