Do you know what Windows Optimal Settings is?
Windows Optimal Settings comes crushing down the attempts of computing community to keep our PC systems safe. It is a tacky rogue application which comes from the same line as Windows Problems Protector, Windows Safety Protection and Windows Optimization & Security. Opposite to what its name says, Windows Optimal Settings is no where near being a reliable security program. It is a parasite which settles in your computer with intention to extort your hard-earned money, leaving your system severely impaired.
Usually the rogue makes its way to your computer via browser hijackers. These are the websites which interferes with your browsing, eventually landing you on an infected page. Once you are there, one careless click will lead you to a Trojan infection which will carry Windows Optimal Settings into your system. Naturally, the rogue can travel to your computer in other ways as well, including fake online coded downloads or suspicious security updates from unknown websites. You have to keep in mind that the marketing system of Windows Optimal Settings is wide spread and it can be lurking for you anywhere.
One of the most disturbing symptoms of Windows Optimal Settings is the inability to access your desktop. You are barred from using your icons and the taskbar, with nothing but the rogue application on the default screen. It might seem rather gloomy in the perspective, but there is a way to regain full access to your desktop. All you have to do is follow these instructions:
- After the reboot of your system, you will be able to see only the Windows Optimal Settings startup screen. Click the “OK” button and it will go away. The rogue will initiate a fake system scan.
- When the scan is done you will be “greeted” with another security notice. Click the “OK” button again.
- The notification will go away if you click on the red “X” at the right top of it.
- Now it will disappear and you will have your desktop back.
However, don’t forget that even if you have your desktop restored, the rogue is still in your system. To avoid similar malfunctions in the future, terminate Windows Optimal Settings immediately.
In non techie terms:
Windows Optimal Settings is a fake security tool, designed to trick unsuspecting users into spending your money. Your task is to ignore everything this rogue is trying to suggest you. If you value your computer safety, eradicate Windows Optimal Settings at once.
