All I know it cause MS error reporting to kick on when I run it
Not pretty, if easy to remove. Kept a user busy for most of the day, until he finally called for help.
If you get infected with it, it can make sites invisible, like google.co.uk does not exisit
Nothing bad about this.. DOWNLOAD MOZILLA FIREFOX. The reason people get all these mal-ware is due to Internet Explorer, you guys have to be retarded or something.
It got me too through a media player codec. It ended up in sending me to microsoft webpage for spyaxe download. I nailed it for good with Spyware Nuker. Still .. a fresh install of Windows and all other stuff, followed by a Ghost image is the best solution - I think :-)
Was infected with it, not directly dangerous but commonly snuggles with rebuilder viruses and trojans. Took a shit load of time to clear.
After being annoyed by adware, I ran NOD32. It removed Optimize.exe and I was just curious why they erased an useful tool..
Optimizer.exe is difficult to remove, ive removed it 3xs thru ez virus and thru safe mode and still cant get rid of it. Looking to clean the reg. keys it infests. Word to the wise, always look at ur running processes, and if u see something you dont know what it is, run a google search on it, like example regseeker.exe is running, so goto google and in search box type regseeker.exe and it will list sites that will define the processer to c if it is not a crucial process or if it is a virus etc. regseeker.exe is a registry cleaner, so its safe. just used as a example process to look up
Very annoying - keeps installing itself after uninstall
The first thing 2 do when u start ya computer is to open task manager n end process for optimize.exe
It is making my compuer so slow. deleted it ran the anti virus everything fine. 3 days later its back. just cant ge rid of it.
It hijacks the internet explorer and the is stored in c:program filesinternet optimizer and the icon looks like a moon face gray in color..and it opens search resukts if a website is not found.
I dont know anything about it i just want it to go away
Removed from parameter windows (Addsuppress soft) after processus termination.
It repeatedly downloads even after being rid of it! Im going to try the solution of faking it out with a text file
I just got rid of it, i hope, i had it for about 30 minutes on my machine and i am pretty good about keeping my computer clean, mine came from attempting to open media player it prompted me to install some software which i at first ended the install process, then my curiosity got the best of me, thought i could find out where its coming from so i kind of deliberetly installed it, but i ran hijack this and adaware, but disconnected from my high speed connection first then ended process from the hijack this config menu, and deleted the directory c:programfilesinternet_optimizer that did it
This File Installs Itself sometimes as a drive-by download, it often tries to change dialer numbers but you are pretty safe if you use tiscali dialer or another dialer program
This file is seriously hard to get rid of. ive tried search and destroy and its done nothing and everytime it runs it closes down ie
Im not sure where it came from but it comes with a trojan dropper and dler 1 called optimize (dyfuca) mediaaccesspk.exe and 1 more its a ebil file i dont care if its dangerious or not its getting off my cpu
There are 2 versions of this file! (RTFA!!) The dangerous Dyfuca version which I had like Philip above.. and a *maybe* legit speed optimizer from the same people who make Download Accelerator Plus. Still undecided as to whether DAP itself is spyware or not!
I had not only the optimize.exe file but I had ISTbar.exe too. Optimize wasnt so difficult to remove. ISTbar,exe is a very nasty file. I couldnt remove the file with Adaware first before I discovered the file kgcnjc.exe. I ended the processes kgcnjc.exe first, optimize,exe, powerscan and last istsvc.exe. After that ADaware removed all harmfull files which were responsible for this misery.
Nothing but problems caused havoc on many computers
Definately spyware, as it was very annoying, and took up a lot of memory, which is common for spyware.
I hate it with it numerious spyware came thru with it. And windows keeps chrasing and saying: Cant find optimize.exe you need this file to open aplication (exe) files.. sure it does
It self installed in my system along with media pass sah agent and other very suspicious processes.. after rebooting in safe mode and running a complete virus scan it seems to have been removed but I still have problems with its cousins.. It appears in Addremove programms but cant be uninstalled like that
I dont know were i got it but it wont go away this thang sucks and im mad it wont delete
Turns off anti-virus applications, Downloads code from the internet, Installs itself in the Registry. darn thing. who needs it.
Optimize.exe is a virus.The icon is a round funny face like a moon. Search your hard disk for the file, Use task manager to kill the process, then delete the file. Use ZoneAlarm to catch it tryin go to access the internet.
Its a spywaretrojan. It was installed during the Win2k Service Pack Update(!) together with other trojans: W32.spybot.worm (winole.exe, mueehd.exe), AdwareIST.bar (IST Toolbar), Dowloader.trojan (winfix17.exe). If u set up a new system, make sure firewall runs b4 windows update or its a pain in the. :o) To kill optimizer it has to be uninstalled (preferences, software), then reboot, shut down the process, login as admin (not local user) and kill it under local user where it hides.
So far Ive found out it needs to die badly. My aunts dial-up was working smoothly for about 4 days, then all of a sudden, its like the system hit a brick wall. Pages dont load and many features of XP dont work. For example, I cant open up the task manager under the admins name because pop-up message tells me that the systems admin disabled that feature, yet
Found it trying to access the internet stopped by McAfee Personal Firewall. Loaded without my knowledge, so I suspect a script from a web page did it. McAfee VirusScan does a good job of deleting it and its entries in the registry.
That its annoying, I deleted it with norton and it still hijacks mi IE when its finding the page.
Optimizer can be installed by an OCX. So if u click ok to install some junk from a site, or numerous other ways. Regardless it sucks when it just installs itself on your computer when you are looking for articles on physics.
It came with talktalk internet provider 1meg broadband also installed as soon as i connect (even after removing) in processs are Windows add tools,DYFUCA,POWERSCAN,IST BAR.SLOTCH,LSPLIST,SHOP AT HOME all this with talktalk in the uk
Spy Ware. Its in the temp directory. delete it. then create a text file, name it optimize.exe and make it read only. thats the end.
Same as Philip, after deleting it my internet connection got even more slow (ha, like if it was possible)
Was loaded onto my system without knowledge or consent. I believe by scripts on a webpage that opened through a DSO exploit. Brought with it DyFuCa, powersave, VX2, sidesearch, and 180solutions. All in one fell swoop. Killed all of them with Spybot, Ad-aware, and McAfee. Set McAfee to scan for possible unwanted programs.
Not much except I did nt ask it to download. getting rid of it was easy, just stopped the process and deleted the 2 versions on my system.
Optimize.exe is SPYWARE.. It is very dangerous, it changes your computer by advertising, Notice any unexplainable popups? Optimize is that explanation. Use Ad-aware 6 PE to successfully remove it, and then clear your C:windowsTEMP folder... Optimize sucks..Spyware should be ILLEGAL!
It was installed from a web radio site through media player without my knowledge or consent
Opens dozens of window ads..hate it delete it
Im surprised, something different with my IE. Its become slower.
If the internet connection is slow and IE cannot find a site optimze.exe takes action
Spyware . I guess it optamizes IE by keeping it hijacked!!
Optimize.exe is a virus.The icon is a round funny face like a moon.It wont optimize anything.The virus name is W32 Downloader.Dyfuca.Use F-Prot from dos to get rid of it or else dont open this virus hidden as an exe file.
