    I found the website yoosecurity.com from a Google search. They are providing false information in order to scare visitors to thier webiste into paying for thier remote support service. It is just one of number of websites which contain highly misleading information in order to scare you into paying for thier services. Usually, such websites make money as affiliate of Spyware Doctor or some other antimalware program - this website is different in that they are selling remote support.

    The -http://guides.yoosecurity.com/how-to-remove-winzip-registry-optimizer-uninstall-guide- I found from Google is a good example of why their service is a scam.

    It contians removal instructions for the hamless program WinZip Registry Optimizer.
    Ths is not true.

    It is not a virus, and if you buy it you will be able to remove any errors found - they they are actual registry problems and not made up.

    But it's all good! You can pay for one of their experts to remove this program.

    There is little need to clean the registry, and WinZip Registry Optimizer (which is a rebranded version of Systweak's Advanced Registry Optimizer) does have minor problems with false positives. However it not malicious in any way.
