Do you know what SpeedingUpMyPC is?
SpeedingUpMyPC is yet another PC optimizer that our security analysts have classified as potentially unwanted program (PUP.) From the very outset, we recommend that you remove this application from your computer as it has absolutely nothing useful to offer. This program’s developers claim that SpeedingUpMyPC will “Stop Windows, Crashes Freezes and other "Strange" Windows Behavior !” Obviously, its developers count on the ignorance on the part of the users to try this program out. Little do the users know that this program will demand that they buy the full version after completing a quick scan which will undoubtedly results in a lot of errors, but the this program does not provide any information about them, so its scan results are untrustworthy. This short description will provide you with the most important information regarding this program.
According to the terms and conditions of this program, SpeedingUpMyPC was developed by a company called SpeedingSoftware, Inc. This company has its own website at Speedingsoftware.com, and this website only features one product — SpeedingUpMyPC. This PC optimizer has been around since 2011, but it has not gathered much of a user base throughout the now almost 5 years of its existence, and it is easy to see why.SpeedingUpMyPC screenshot

Nevertheless, some users may get it unintentionally as our security analysts have found that it to be bundled with malicious software such as adware, bad toolbars, and so on. Not only that, but you can also get its standalone installer from Software.informer.com, which, by the way, states that “This software might contain adware or suspicious components.” So even the third-party that disseminates it calls it suspicious, and yet continues to feature it on the website. Like most potentially unwanted programs these days, SpeedingUpMyPC has its very own dedicated website at Speedingupmypc.com. However, this website is nearing its end as most of its subpages cannot be accessed anymore. SpeedingUpMyPC can no longer be downloaded from this website.
SpeedingUpMyPC is identical to Optimizer Pro In terms of its functionality. So let us talk about what this program claims to do and what it can actually do. This PC optimizer’s website provides an extensive list of what it claims to fix and repair. This list includes but is not limited to fixing .dll, .exe errors, Windows driver errors, Windows registry errors and program errors, and repairing Windows shortcuts. However, this irrelevant program does not have a file replacement system that takes a lot of time and recourses to develop. SpeedingUpMyPC’s scan takes only a few seconds and results in thousands of detected issues. This program does not provide any information about its findings which is typical for a PUP of its complexity. In order to fix the issues you will have to purchase the product. However, there are no guarantees that this program will ever fix anything. It may show you that it did but in reality it might do absolutely nothing.
Therefore, we are of the opinion that this program is next to useless. It completes its scanning process way to fast which is indicative that its findings are unreliable or to put it blatantly — fake.
