Severity scale:Scorpion Saver severity is 10  (10 / 100)
 

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. It means that this program can be installed on your computer when installing another free program, such as video recording/streaming software, some download-manager or PDF creator. 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:

My computer will not allow me to uninstall this nightmare. I am cursed with windows 8. Please state, exactly, step by step, without presuming ANY expertise(DO NOT USE JARGON WORDS) how to uninstall this when my computer will not let me, evidently because I do not have permission. Presume, please, that I am telling you the truth and that this is MY computer. I am not a subversive trying to undermine someone elses property/computer.

Thank you.

However, I ran MalwateBytes AntiMalware and it remove about 200 to 300 PUP.xxxxxxxx entries and all starting working well again. The symptoms seem to be gone even thought the programs still show up on the control panel program list. I also disabled ScorpionSaver in the startup list.

Its embedded in your computer Registry, so youll have to delete it from there. Heres how:
1. Open Registry Editor by pressing Windows Key + R or Start > Run. If Run isnt on your Start menu, look it up in the All Programs > Accessories.
2. Type in: regedit, and then hit Enter
3. Locate the following: HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftware and then Delete everything with the name Scorpion Saver in it by right-clicking.
(there is a back slash after the HEY_CURRENT_USER and before the Software, but this site wont let me have it displayed)
4. Re-start your computer.

Of course, youll have to Uninstall it at your Control Panel, and Remove from all your browsers (work in the Settings or Add-on on IE).
Ending the process in your Task Manager is a very temporary patch.

On Window 8, you will have to make a bunch of shortcuts including Control Panel, place them onto the Desktop and go from there. This step alone will make your life much easier. Youll also have to create charms for them. I have Windows 8 on one of my computers.

Good luck! Hey, this worked for me.

My son was infected... spent three days cleaning out HHkeys, uninstalling Adpeak, and scorpion saver, only to have it come back. Finally found the program that kept reinstalling it on boot up. Go into your control panel, Administrative Tools, then Services... Kill / disable "Level Quality Watchers"
At this point after doing all the other suggested fixes, this has prevented it from coming back so far after a reboot.

These Programs are all associated with this problem:
Anything With :
Adpeak
Scorpion Saver
Level Quality Watcher64.exe
Level Quality Watcher32.exe

Hope this helps you....

here is what i did after trying to do some of the things above. I am very frustrated with windows 8 even after the update because I had already put a fix on my computer putting back in classic windows. Since I had 2 or 3 after the update, I tried to delete the original one only, and it deleted all of the windows classics, even the one included with the update, so now I have not been able to reinstall to put the classic back in. ANYWAY, to get rid of scorpian, after reading what someone did above with the regedit, I did the Windows button and hit r and then typed in control panel, found uninstall programs, scrolled down, found 2 files for scorpion, it started the uninstall process, stopped said their was another user who was administrator but I ignored this and it was allowed to continue. I cant remember what button I pushed to allow, but it deleted the program. I did not get that message for the second file. I deleted the first one and then the second one.

This crapware caused a problem with firefox and my app software. I kept getting a syntax error with illegal character found. Caused the app to hang. I have windows 8.1. I could not find out how to delete the program. Finally i decided to try system restore. The system restored the computer to right before this program got installed and now things are OK again. I am not sure of how I got infected. I dont see how installing software without my knowledge can be legal. I hope some lawyer takes notice and we can sue this company out of existence.

I have Windows 7. I tried the "regedit" method described above, since the malware cant be deleted using control panels "uninstall," but this didnt work either.
This malware is really awful--my computers barely usable.
Ill try Firefox removal next ... though Im not sure what it is or where to find it.

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 :)

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?

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.

Going to this site really works http://www.scorpionsaver.com/uninstall.php I know it sounds to good to be true and i tried a million different things before i decided it was either go to this site or reinstall windows, but i was just sick and tired of dealing with this piece of crap scorpion saver. So i took a chance and went to that site and it really worked.

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.

Sorry to hear that it didnt work Brad, i also have windows 7 and my biggest problem was i couldnt uninstall the program in CTRL panel. every time i tried it asked me to let it make adjustments to my hard drive or somthing like that.

glad you figured out another way though, this program is just so horrible i dont wish it on anybody.

I was *very* reticent to try this, but it truly did work.
