MalwareScanner - How to remove?


MalwareScanner is a new rogue anti-spyware program, a fake spyware remover, which uses disinformation to lure users into purchasing it’s "full" or "licensed" version. Unlike most rogues, MalwareScanner has to be manually downloaded and installed in order for the scam to work.

The catch with this parasite is rather simple: MalwareScanner’s trial version offers a system scan, which generates false possitives (legitimate files, recognized as threats); to remove these "threats", the user has to purchase the full version of the program, which is no more functional than the trial, albeit it may pretend to disinfect the supposedly malicious files.

MalwareScanner is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block using your HOSTS file for maximum protection.
