Block Scanner. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Jake Doevan - -   Also known as BlockScanner | Type: Rogue Antispyware

BlockScanner is a misleading security application from the same family as Block Watcher, SoftBarrier and Shield Safeness. This application pretends to be a legitimate anti-virus tool, but at the same time it purposely displays fake security alerts and reports false computer infections or security threats to make you think your PC is infected with malware. Once installed, BlockScanner will prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the threats. However, this program can not be trusted because so-called “full” version of it does not even exist. We strongly recommend you to uninstall BlockScanner from your computer upon detection.

Most of the time, BlockScanner is promoted through the use of Trojans that display false scan results to scare you into thinking your PC is baldy infected. It may also come bundled with other malicious software. When running, Block Scanner will flood your computer with fake and very annoying warnings/notifications stating that you have many security and privacy issues. You may also find that your computer runs slower, this is because BlockScanner is using up the resources of your computer that may be also used by other programs. Last but not least, this malicious software will hijack the Internet Explorer web browser and redirect you to various misleading websites.

If you are infected with Block Scanner, or see fake alerts stating that you should install it, then please use the removal guide below to remove BlockScanner from the system manually for free. If you have already purchased it, please contact your credit card company immediately and dispute the charges.
