Programs like SpeedUpMyPC are often spreading through freeware installers that can be downloaded from “official” website of this program. Developers are trying to make users believe that SpeedUpMyPC is a legit system optimizer and install this program. But these rogues can also be promoted with viral ads and redirects, spam messages through emails and forums.
First of all, after successful installation, the SpeedUpMyPC program will scan your computer to find junk files and errors that could be removed. It will show you the results of the scanning process and suggest you purchase the license to fix these problems. This could be a legit offer if only scan results weren\`t fake. In the list of detected errors, users will find a lot of records that don\`t exist inside of their computers. This kind of behavior is a common thing for a rogue system optimizer.
