PC-Scannerr.com is a misleading website classified as a browser hijacker which promotes the rogue anti-spyware application called Cyber Security. Please note that it may distribute other malicious software too. Basically, it simulates system scan and reports that your computer is infected. It displays the same infections on every computer, so obviously this is a scam. Some of the reported infections: W32/Virut.a!, Exploit-MSWord, Win 32:Delf-QX, Admess.Trojan, zserv.Transporder.Trojan, Wstart.TrojanDownloader. PC-Scannerr.com supposedly finds 31 malware infections on every computer.
