How to remove SysCleaner?
What is SysCleaner?
SysCleaner is a new rogue system cleaner (a nice change to the traditional rogue anti-spyware scam). The all-trace-of-porn-surfing-removing, cookie-erasing tool is full of you know what: it doesn’t work, yet extorts money from users, who are desperate enough to believe it’s a legitimate program. The desperation comes from various scare tactics SysCleaner employs upon infecting the system by using Trojans, disguised as video codecs.
Among the strategic endeavors SysCleaner takes part in is the infamous flood of popups and fake system notifications, which carry the message of non-existent errors, risks and whatnot. These same annoyances also provide the user with a solution, a whim of fortune – SysCleaner. This program fashions itself as an award-winning tool so blatantly, that people, given the situation they’re in, often buy it to no apparent benefit of their own (unless charity is beneficial to the one who provides it).
Sys-Cleaner.com is the home of promotion for this bogus tool and it reaches it’s goal perfectly. The content found here is an all too familiar blend of fearmonging and self-praise. The website also provides us with a free online scan for errors. I tried it for laughs on a few computers and all produced the same result – 324 "compromising files" – the god of circumstances is having a ball today, no less. Would you like to call the SysCleaner crew and ask them why their product sucks to such an extent? Well, you can send them an email instead – telephones aren’t cool enough for error-fighters (apparently, neither is providing a name when registering a domain).
SysCleaner is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block sys-cleaner.com using your HOSTS file.

SysCleaner is classified as Rogue Anti-Spyware. After infecting a user’s system, it proceeds to scare its victim into buying the “product” by displaying fake security messages, stating that your computer is infected with spyware and only SysCleaner can help you to remove it after you download the trial version. As soon as the victim downloads SysCleaner trial version, it pretends to scan your computer and shows a grossly exaggerated amount of non-existent errors. Then, SysCleaner offers to buy the full version to fix these false errors. If the user agrees, SysCleaner does not only fix the errors, but it also takes the user’s money and may even install additional spyware into the victim’s computer.
Some Rogue Anti-Spyware, such as SysCleaner, may offer users to buy it after the victim clicks on a banner or a pop-up while surfing the internet. Usually, a Trojan is installed to a victim’s computer after clicking on the advertisement. It then proceeds to download or even install SysCleaner, which is another way for Rogue Anti-Spyware to spread itself.
Most of rogue Anti-Spyware, such as SysCleaner, is nearly impossible to remove manually.
