    How Can This Scorpion Saver Infect the Computer?

    Once sneaking into a fragile computer with success, the Spyware is going to modify the default settings of the infected browser and then take over it completely. The malware will mislead Internet users'websites to an unwanted and irrelevant website. Apart from giving a redirection and a bunch of pop-ups on the screen, the virus is designed to install plenty of other threats, such as some unwanted programs and other viruses, on the infected computer without any consciousness or permission. Internet users have no ability to handicap the process of the uninvited programs and then they will detect the infected system showing a slow performance and coming across a crash at last. Victims should get rid of Spyware popup as soon as possible or the browser hijacker will cause more damage.

    I work as a Virus Removal Support agent for a top Anti-Virus Company. I would like to share my experience and my knowledge on how to deal with Computer virus and Spyware. My aim is to provide free support to people to make their computer free from Virus and Spyware.

    Before performing the manual removal of Spyware, reboot your computer into "safe mode with networking" by constantly tapping F8 key before Windows is launched. It works for Windows 7, XP & Vista.You can Download AntiVirus Program:

    Crunch, your best bet is to use Spyware remover. But if that's not the case, find the name of the spyware, and go to Start>Search and type in the name and then do another search and search for part of the name...then search the internet for the spyware that you have to find all of the files that you should search for if you have that particular spyware..i hope this helps

    If you want to remove spyware, then there are several options that you can do that are free.

    I would recommend using Spybot: Search and Destroy: http://download.cnet.com/Spybot-Search-amp-Destroy...

    Should be simple to download, install, and update, once set up just select Check for problems and allow it to scan you computer. When the scan is complete, select the Fix selected problems and you're done. Best way to observe the effects of the removal is to reboot your computer.

    If you can download and scan safely with no problem and delete, do not go into safe mode. However if you cannot open any of the downloads or connect to internet, go into safe mode.

    Restart your computer, press F8 repeatedly, go into "safe mode with networking", download superanti spyware and malwarebytes (links below). Both those delete ANY virus. I scanned with both, some finds others that others don't find. So USE both and update both.

    URGENT : Please go into Safe mode, do not ignore that step or else the virus will interfere with your activity (Example : Denying you internet access). Also viruses don't allow you to open up programs or anti-virus software, and being in Safe mode allows you to do that. In Safe Mode, the virus cannot interfere with you getting rid of it.

    After downloading in safe mode, UPDATE them. PLEASE Update. You'll see this option, don't be alarmed.

    http://www.malwarebytes.org

    http://www.superantispyware.com/

    Quick scan and quarantine/delete/remove. And you are cleaned.

    If those do not work, go into safe mode and download Spybot search and destroy. Update!

    http://download.cnet.com/Spybot-Search-amp-Destroy...

    Restart and now you are clean.

    Stay safe by downloading COMODO Internet Security (free) and keep those anti-virus softwares I told you to download.
