Installdiskscaner.net is a browser hijacker promoting the rogue anti-spyware application known as System Security 2009. Due to affiliated trojans infiltrating the computer through security vulnerabilities and modifying the browser settings, web-surfing activities are redirected to the Installdiskscaner.net domain. Here the computer is subject to a fake online scan that reports fictitious and sometimes grossly exaggerated infection results, all in order to intimidate the user into purchasing the fake spyware remover System Security 2009.
