What is pcperformer.exe?

Part of PC Performer by PerformerSoft LLC

What is it?

PC Performer is registry cleaner, a class of third party software utility designed for the Microsoft Windows operating system, whose purported purpose is to remove redundant items from the Windows registry. Registry cleaners in general try to automate the process of looking for invalid entries, missing file references or broken links within the registry and resolving or removing them.
Description of pcperformer.exe from PerformerSoft LLC
Automatically optimize your registry settings to prevent crashes and help speed up your computer. Manage start up – goes to the Start Up Manager and shows the programs that are loaded when Windows starts. You can select any program and choose Delete. This will remove the program from the list of programs that start when Windows is loaded (the program is NOT deleted from your computer). The Add button lets you add a program that will start when Windows is loaded. In general, it’s best to only start necessary programs so that Windows will start faster. The Windows Registry stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows. Over time, the registry gradually grows in size and gets cluttered with obsolete data. This slows Windows down and causes other problems.
