Hello, I am running windows 7/64 and cannot get uninstall this pc optimizer pro. It got added without my approval. Ihave tried to use revo uninstaller and win patrol plus with no results.
it's in this file:
C:\Program Files\PC Optimizer Pro\StartApps.exe -s
also, received this    %windir%\system32\conime.exe
 file right around the same time and cannot delete it.
 
Plus, one other possible related issue is  that I am now getting random words changing to links on webites. when you scroll over tham an AD appears in a popup.

You already have a topic open in the Am I infected forum. In your link above and I'll add the same one here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/495017/remove-pc-optimizer-pro/#

To avoid confusion for everyone and potentially conflicting information please continue with that topic.

I am closing this one.
