Scorpion Saver

Scorpion Saver Description

Scorpion Saver is an adware that may show unwanted random adverts on the PC when the web user is visiting social networking and shopping related websites. The pop-up adverts shown by Scorpion Saver may provide web users with numerous deals, offers and discounts. If the PC user clicks on any pop-up adverts, Scorpion Saver may divert him to unknown advertisement websites designed by cybercrooks to possibly make a profit from click fraud and raised web traffic. Scorpion Saver may be added to Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome while the PC user is installing other freeware and shareware applications. Once installed on the PC, Scorpion Saver may alter browser settings and replace the default homepage and search provider with a particular commercial website. When the PC user strives to search for anything online in any legal search engine, he may find the toolbar of Scorpion Saver added into the web browser that may display various pop-up adverts and sponsored links linked to the surfing activity of the computer user. Scorpion Saver may keep track of the PC user's browsing habits and transfer gathered data to third-parties possibly for targeted advertising purposes.
