As far as its supposed functions go, SpeedOptimizerGuru is said to Repair windows registry issues by deleting or fixing missing, damaged or corrupted files and values. It is also said that it will prevent PC crashes and freezes, safeguard your data, maintain PC health, and optimize your browser, and so on. It gives the false impression that it is the best and only tool you need to maintain your computer’s optimum performance. However, it will not show detailed information about its scan results which is often done by potentially unwanted applications that pose as legitimate PC optimizers. Furthermore, it will not fix the errors until you purchase this program. There is no free trail for 30 days like some programs have. The cost of this application is $24.99 USD and the developers made the purchase very convenient by supporting Visa, MasterCard, and other payment types.

Since SpeedOptimizerGuru does not provide any information about the threats and issues it detects makes it unreliable. In any case, you can easily find similar applications that can do at least some of its supposed functions free of charge, so there is no reason to purchase it. Besides most antimalware scanners detect SpeedOptimizerGuru as a threat and remove it.
