Scorpion Saver Removal Guide

Scorpion Saver is a browser hijacker that enters computers without the user’s permission. Once installed, it will be immediately attached to your browser regardless whether it is Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or Internet Explorer that you are using. This intruder also goes by the names Ads by Scorpion Saver and Scorpion Saver Services. As it is common for hijackers, Scorpion Saver enters systems by being attached to free applications that users download from suspicious sources.

When Scorpion Saver is installed on your computer, you may experience changes to your browser. Your home page address may be modified, and your default search provider may be changed. You will also start noticing all kinds of ads appearing on the websites you are on. Banner ads, in-text ads, and pop-up ads. When you visit some popular online shopping website like ebay.com or amazon.com, you will receive a drop-down menu offering you coupons. The drop-down menu will contain coupons offering discounts for items that you are currently viewing or have recently viewed. Though the coupons may seem like something useful when you shop online, but some of the ads with offers on them may turn out to lead you to websites that have nothing to do with discounts. You may be transferred to a page that has been created by cyber criminals. Such websites will try to download some virus onto your PC or to try to trick you into sharing your personal information. Some may even try to trick you into purchasing bogus software that is totally useless.

Scorpion Saver virus is able to record all of your browsing history and access all information you input on various websites such as personal details, usernames, passwords, etc. Then this information can be disclosed to unknown third parties. It can also open new tabs on your browser and send you to unknown websites.

You should beware of applications that are available on anywhere but their official source. Otherwise, you will probably unwittingly install some additional application whose intentions are unclear. There is no doubt that Scorpion Saver should be removed from the system as soon as possible. Below you will find instructions that will help you do that. It is also important to scan your computer for any viruses that may be trying stealing your sensitive information or performing some other malicious activities. This should be done by using genuine security software. We recommend using SpyHunter. It will detect and remove all infections while making sure that no other viruses are able to infiltrate the system.

    My son was infected… spent three days cleaning out HHkeys, uninstalling Adpeak, and scorpion saver, only to have it come back. Finally found the program that kept reinstalling it on boot up. Go into your control panel, Administrative Tools, then Services… Kill / disable “Level Quality Watchers”
    At this point after doing all the other suggested fixes, this has prevented it from coming back so far after a reboot.

    These Programs are all associated with this problem:
    Anything With :
    Adpeak
    Scorpion Saver
    Level Quality Watcher64.exe
    Level Quality Watcher32.exe

    Hope this helps you….
