When I tried downloading Optifine I got a boatload of malware and content such as that on my device (it's all scanned and deleted now, THANKFULLY) and hopefully this WON'T cause anything.~

For some reason, my Optifine wont open... I downloaded it, put it on my desktop, and tried to open it and nothing happens. Literally, I click on it and NOTHING happens and eveything goes back to how it was 5 seconds before it. Any help? I want to be able to participate in Reddit UHCs without lagging and dying everytime.

I'm having the same problem. I have downloaded it, tried putting it in folders, tried using forge, renaming all the files to optifine, everything. I cannot get it to open, install or work. I even did all this after completely re-downloading Minecraft.

I appreciate the help but that's what I do... I open it with Java and I get the little loading symbol and then it disappears and nothing happens :(

Hmm.. Maybe right click on the .jar file and select run as administrator. If that doesn't work then Right click on the .jar file and select properties. Then see if on the bottom it has the option to unblock. If there is then unblock the file and try again. If that doesn't work, try to open the .jar file as administrator when it is unblocked. If that doesn't work, I give up!

Optifine is a program that allows you to alter to graphical options in minecraft. It also allows you to install shaders.
Also it makes your minecraft run smoother.
