Help! I was fooled into downloading Speed Optimizer Pro. I can't remove it. Help!
Security software is:
Avast Home Edition 4.8
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
Other Software:
Tuneup 2008

To use VoG™'s suggested program ....

During the un-install process you may be asked if you want to re-start your computer, DO NOT re-start at this point, let Revo continue. You will eventually get the option to Select All and to Delete - DO SO. You will be given the same options a second time, again DO SO, do not be picky, just accept all that Revo chooses.
After clicking on Finish, re-start your computer.

I'm currently trying Renvo Unstaller. Could you please tell me if its Spyware

Speed Optimizer Pro (not to be confused with Speed Optimizer) does appear to be very dodgy to say the least. Treat as Spyware.

Help I can't find it in Renvo Unstaller. I tried removing the program vai Add remove programs but when yo right click its still ther

Try the Search option in Revo.

Also give Revo time to show the programs.

I've let Renvo show all its programs and also searched for it and used Hunter Mode

By far the best and easiest way to increase your computer's speed, is to increase the RAM.

Also with the programs you already have, you do not need a Speed Optimizer!
