SecureExpertCleaner Image

SecureExpertCleaner or Secure Expert Cleaner, is a rogue anti-spyware program often bundled with the Trojan Zlob which is found on fake video codecs. SecureExpertCleaner can also be found on rogue websites that provide a trial for the user to download. Once Zlob is installed, it will generate an enormous amount of fake popups and system notifications stating that the user's computer is infected with spyware. If the user is tricked into clicking on any of these messages, he/she will be redirected to where he/she will be forced to purchase SecureExpertCleaner's commercial version. SecureExpertCleaner will allege it's able to remove the spyware found on the user's computer system, however, this is just another mechanism to push the user into buying its full version.

SecureExpertCleaner's trial version is also able to generate a computer system scan and display erroneous results to scare the user.ScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshot
