    Well how can we trust your 'auto removal tool'.

    This clearly looks like a scam to me

    Auto removal tool is actually STOPzilla which is a legitimate anti-spyware application. This is not a scam I think. Anyway, if you don't trust it, you may use manual removal guide. No need to download removal tool.
