Microsoft Previews Their Own PC Manager (System Optimizer) App

From Martin Brinkmann's 21-Oct-2022 First Look at Microsoft's CCleaner-like PC Manager Application on ghacks.net:

Microsoft PC Manager is a new beta application by Microsoft that promises one-click speed boosts, full system check-ups, virus removals and more.  If that reminds you of applications such as CCleaner, or game boosting apps that are more or less snakeoil, then you are not far off...

If you can't beat them, join them.

Re: Microsoft Previews Their Own PC Manager (System Optimizer) App

Installed the MS PC MANAGER; after running the Chinese Language through an online translator. Installed OK.
Fired-up the app. Windows Security goes 'yellow'; Norton pops a 'Red Info' window; regarding MS turning on 'Defender', unnecessarily. Yep, it's switched on. I dived into Windows Security, to turn it off. It doesn't make a lot of difference, whether 'Defender' is active or not. Norton 'Green Tick', protected.
Changed the app to manual boot. Use with caution. Gave it a run through. I'm undecided, as to the apps efficacy. Certainly, didn't obviously improve the machine's performance. I'll leave it installed as an occasional toy; it might prove itself, in the medium to longer term: equally, until I'm bored using it.
