Then they try to sell you their software, claiming it will remove these problems. More information can be found on our Malwarebytes Labs blog. How do I know if I am infected with Global System Mechanic? This is how the main screen of the system optimizer looks: You will find these icons in your taskbar, your startmenu, and on your desktop: and see this warning during install: and these screens during "operations": You may see this entry in your list of installed programs: and these tasks in your list of Scheduled Tasks: How did Global System Mechanic get on my computer? These so-called system optimizers use different methods of getting installed. This particular one was promoted by a site scaring you into thinking your system is infected.
