Scorpion Saver, Tried other things still not gone


Recommended Posts

I was a moron and installed a program I know and trust but I failed to realize when I was hitting accept I was allowing this stupid program to be installed.

I have tried this https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=137694

and some of this

I also tried to do this http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-scorpion-saver although I did not do it in safe mode.

I also ran my virus protection software ESET, it found 11 threats but I never saw the option to clean or delete them.

Here is my systemlook.txt after doing all of the above

Did you run MBAM and check for updates and then do a Full Scan?


If so please post back that log.  If not then please do so and when completed post back the log.


I'll be heading out in a bit but go ahead and post the log and I'll check back on you tomorrow.

Are you seeing any signs or issues anymore from Scorpion Saver ?

Please download Security Check by screen317 from HERE or HERE.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • If you get Unsupported operating system. Aborting now, just reboot and try again.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt.
  • Please Post the contents of that document.
  • Do Not Attach It!!!

Yeah, Scorpien Saver is still installed. I have tried to remove it from the remove programs tool (after starting malwarebytes and everything else I'v tired). I got Scropien Saver from downloading and in stalled PDF- XChange Viewer, when I went to install it I was not paying attention (it was the first day after finals and in the morning I was trying to help my mom) and just hit accept (thinking it was legal stuff) from this site http://download.cnet.com/PDF-XChange-Viewer/3000-10743_4-10598377.html.

On a short inspection it appears the problem is fixed. Thank you so very very very much. Is there a way I can give you any money for helping me? I saw someone had a donate option on their sig on another option, I cant give you a whole lot but maybe enough for you to buy dinner or something. I will check this forum later or tomorrow, thank you so much, please keep this topic open for one or two more days just encase something happens. Im going to defrag my computer now.

I'm very sorry, it looks like I overlooked your reply somehow.  Just now seeing it and looking at your log it would appear you probably have a few left over items that should still be cleaned up.


If you're still around and would like further assistance please let me know.




These are not normal settings to have for most users on their browsers.
