Should I Remove Startup Maximizer and what is this program?

Startup Maximizer by Solid Tech is a potentially unwanted program. It’s a PUP and nothing more. Its selling point is that it’s a beneficial and useful tool, but it’s not. It’s all a lie. The application claims to be an optimization program. Don’t you believe it! It’s a fake. Nothing it promises comes through. All the positive effects it claims to have on your system – lies. It falls short on each claim it makes. It’s an infection. And, what do you do with infections? You get rid of them. Follow experts’ advice, and do the same with Startup Maximizer. As soon as you become aware of its presence on your PC, act! Don’t ignore it. You WILL regret it if you do. The more time the PUP spends on your system, the worse your predicament gets. Understand this is an infection that causes a ton of harm. And, to both you and your PC. It WILL overwhelm you with issues, place a malware risk on you, and jeopardize your privacy. All that is avoidable. Just find and delete the PUP the first chance you get. Otherwise, your situation WILL worsen in time. Don’t grant Startup Maximizer the time and opportunity to wreak havoc on your PC. End its mess-making before it grows too overwhelming. Locate and remove the deceitful program at once. Your future self will be thankful.

Startup Maximizer turns to deception and finesse to gain entry. And, not only does it succeed but does so without you even realizing it. That’s right. The PUP manages to sneak in undetected. It tends to do that by using the old but gold means of infiltration. More often than not, it slithers its way in via freeware. It’s arguably the easiest access point to your PC. That’s because, for reasons unknown, users are quite distracted during its install. They choose to throw caution to the wind and rely on luck. So, instead of reading the terms and conditions with care, they skip them and say ‘Yes’ to everything. It’s hardly a winning strategy to leave your and your PC’s fate to chance. Don’t go that route. You’ll regret it. Choose the better way. Be extra thorough and do your due diligence. Familiarize yourself with what you’re asked to approve. Don’t just agree with blind faith. Don’t give into gullibility and distraction, and don’t rush. Remember, infections prey on carelessness. So, don’t be careless.

Startup Maximizer markets itself as a system optimizer. Supposedly, it helps to keep your PC infection-free. It performs scans, and if it detects threats, lets you know. Make no mistake. It ALWAYS finds threats. And, they’re always in double or triple digits. It’s scare tactics, employed by the PUP. It shows you these terrible results, claiming your PC is overrun with threats. And, guess what? It offers you a way to save your system, get rid of the threats and free disk space. See what it does? It creates a problem and then waves the solution in front of your face. To save yourself from the countless cyber threats, you have to buy its full version. As the one you have now is only capable of performing scans to locate the issues, but not deal with them. Convenient, no? And, Startup Maximizer cannot even perform scans! Yes, it’s incapable of scanning anything. So, everything it displays is bogus, and NOT substantiated. It’s there to scare you into doing something, which you’ll later regret. In other words, buy a worthless AV program, which will do nothing but further the mess. Not to mention, the other consequences that will ensue. For one, by purchasing it, you’ll waste money. But, what’s worse, you’ll open the door to your private life to wicked people. Yes, the third parties that published the PUP will have access to your privacy. Think about it. These are unknown individuals with questionable agendas. Are you ready to trust them with your personal and financial information? Don’t. Do yourself a favor, and delete the program the first chance you get.
