VSCAN7 - How To Remove?


VSCAN7 is a fake online scanner that pretends to be a legitimate antispyware program. It automatically redirects to malicious websites and attempts to deceive computer users into downloading some fake rogue program.

Once VSCAN7 enters the system, it modifies some settings so that your Internet browser would constantly redirect you to the websites promoting rogue antispyware programs, like Antivirus 7 and block requested websites. It often displays fake notifications which read:

Windows Internet Explorer
Danger application was detected on your computer. VSCAN7 will perform a quick and free scan of your PC.

Resident Shield: New virus detected
Warning! New virus detected
Please click “Remove All” button to heal all infected files and protect your PC.

Internet Shield: Identity theft attempt detected
Warning! Identity theft attempt detected
Please click “Prevent attack” button to heal all infected files and protect your PC.

Do not trust these alerts as they are counterfeited. It might look as a legitimate antivirus scanner but the reality is different. Please remove VSCAN7 browser hijacker immediately after noticing its traces on your machine.
