Installdiskscaner.net Description

Installdiskscaner.net is a browser hijacker promoting the rogue anti-spyware application known as System Security 2009.

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.
