Scorpion Saver is also known as Scorpion Saver Ads | Type: Adware

Scorpion Saver is a potentially unwanted application, which is usually mixed with virus or malware. In reality, this program can't harm your computer in any way. It can only be blamed for unfair distribution methods and annoying activities that are initiated when user starts browsing on the Internet. Typically, Scorpion Saver is used to redirect people to related websites, so it displays continuous advertisements when people visit Ebay, Walmart, Amazon, Facebook and other popular websites. In most of the cases, they look really trustworthy and beneficial. However, we still don't recommend trusting these ads because they are mainly used to generate web traffic to related websites and collect sales. If you noticed that Scorpion Saver hijacked your browser, you have to remove this program from your computer.

HOW CAN Scorpion Saver INFILTRATE MY COMPUTER?

Scorpion Saver is mostly distributed using unfair distribution techniques that rely on freeware and shareware.

This distribution method is legal but it really initiates various discussions on the Internet and has already been named as 'phishy'. For preventing such unexpected downloads, you should pay more attention to the installation process of the freeware. If you got infected with this program and now you see continuous Ads by Scorpion Saver, you can get rid of them by uninstalling this program from the system. Here's what you have to do:

What is adware?

Adware is a program that displays advertisements while people are browsing online. Advertisements appear in a web browser, pop-up windows, special toolbars or within the host program. Adware also can gather information about user’s habits and interests. Once it collects what it needs, it sends it out through a background Internet connection. Such behavior allows adware vendors to deliver targeted advertisements to the end user and collect general statistics. However, it may also be used for stealing people’s private data.

Adware is divided into parasitical and legitimate applications. Illegal advertising programs are very similar to spyware parasites and often have some of their functions. They can be installed without user's knowledge and start working every time a computer is rebooted. However, they are less dangerous than rogues because the most of such parasites are primarily intended to collect user’s personal information for marketing and advertising purposes. Unfortunately, you can never know what other purposes it can be used for.

Symptoms showing that your computer was infected by Scorpion Saver:

•  Appearance of annoying pop-up ads
•  Appearance of banners and in-text ads
•  Redirects to unknown and suspicious websites
•  Changes in homepage and default search engine
•  Decreased speed of every Internet browser

Good gracious! My husbands computer was nearly completely locked up, I was having trouble navigating and couldnt get online. I kept trying and trying and finally was able to navigate to put www.scorpionsaver.com/uninstall.php in the address bar and nearly instantly the computer began operating properly. I was *very* reticent to try this, but it truly did work.

That site really did NOT work for me (Win 7). I tried it many many many times. Avoid that.

What finally worked for me is what Jeff mentioned above. Do an uninstall through CTRL panel, then do a hard shutdown, or unplug your PC. Its gone, FINALLY!

Good luck intrusive piece of garbage spamware.

Scorpion Saver is one nefarious piece of software. Im not sure how my Windows system go into this state, but my Windows registry contained many references to Scorpion Saver even though the program did not exist at that path under Program Files. However, registry entries for Scorpion Saver under Program Files (x86) also existed, and those binaries did indeed exist. I never saw any ad pop-ups, but I was getting some very puzzling behavior in all browsers even though no such add-on was listed under any browser. Some specific links in certain Web-sties did not resolve most of the time. Also, links to one specific Web site usually did not resolve successfully. I had no idea what the root cause of the problems was until I just happened to notice this suspicious software on my system and removed it after learning that it was ad ware.

I removed all Windows registry entries having anything to do with Scorpion Saver using regedit.exe even though that is a pretty crude and brute force approach. Also, removed the Scorpion Saver directory under Program Files (x86). Then I used CCleaner to clean up my registry.

Everything works now. I think performance is better now, too. Im pretty sure my system was infected a few weeks ago when I was looking for a free mp3 volume normalization utility.

I successfully removed Scorpion Saver from wondows7, doing the following:

Select Start > Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features.
Select Scorpion Saver.
Chose Uninstall.
HERE IS THE TRICK - After uninstall is complete, Scorpion Saver parks its self in memory and writes its self back to the hard drive when the computer is shut down. DONT LET IT DO THIS!!!! - After uninstall is complete UNPLUG THE COMPUTER!!!!! This will not allow Scorpion Saver to write its self back to the hard drive.

My problem is when I select uninstall it stops me and says "will you allow adpeak to make changes to this computer". When I select no, it stops the uninstall process and the program is still there. Should I remove the entries in the registry key first then try?

It seems I have successfully removed Scorpion Saver.

Here are the tips: Open your registry as previously stated and remove all items of scorpion saver/ AdPeak. The key (and the hard part) is to make sure to remove all the unwanted Adpeak entries in your registry. I think the ones that arent as obvious and are missed by most is WindowsCurrentVersionExplorerBrowserHelperObjects...etc.. I dont remember the rest cause I already deleted it :) Just make sure you read. The most important one to eliminate is HHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall...etc.. Once I removed it, it actually disappeared from my browesr. I also found this one learking around: HHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeCaphyonAdvanced InstallerLZMA... etc...

Clean up your registry and you should be safe :)
