I ran both Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware and it found nothing on my Win 7 x64 Home Premium laptop. However, when I ran Spybot, it found 1 entry of 'OptimumInstaller'. It would not fix the problem.
Is this Adware or Malware? I cannot tell by doing research. If it is best to get rid of it, how should I do it? One other note: I just ran Avast Pro Antivirus and it found no infections. Could this be a FP, since only Spybot detects it? Thanks.
Edit: To Mods....If this should be in the Malware Removal Forum, please place it there.

Could you please open Spybot,click Mode up top,select Advanced mode,(if a warning window comes up,please select "Yes"),then click Tools,View Reports,then click View Previous Reports.
The Spybot logfiles are dated(Checks.yymmdd-hhmm or Fixes.yymmdd-hhmm).Please select the Spybot Fixes logfile with the date from the scan that found Optimum Installer and doubleclick it.It should open in the Spybot window.Rightclick somewhere in that window,and select "Select All".Then rightclick again,select Copy,then Paste the logfile here in a reply.
Thanks for posting your logfile.
From what I could find,this looks like it may be a false positive,but the info I came up with was scanty,at best.So it's best to ask about it in the false positives forum.

A lot of the info needed you've posted here,so it should be okay for you to include a link to this thread,if you like.It may be a few days for a reply,since it's the weekend.You'll probably get a reply around Monday or so.
