Virus Sweeper is a rogue anti-spyware application, fake spyware remover. It is just a new version of another notorious rogue - Virus Doctor. Virus Sweeper is advertised through the use of Trojans that display misleading alerts and security notifications stating that user's computer is infected with spyware, malware or other similar parasites. If user clicks on even one of those alerts, he will automatically download and install Virus Sweeper into his computer. The main goal of VirusSweeper is to display falsified alerts and to convince the user to buy a full version of this totally worthless application.

Once installed and active, Virus Sweeper is configured to run automatically every time computer starts up. Then it performs fake system scan and displays various bogus results. Mainly, Virus Sweeper states that user's PC is seriously infected and has many security issues. Virus Sweeper floods the system with pesky pop-up windows and similar fake notifications. It might even decrease system performance and disorganize the functionally of security applications. It is very important to ignore all disinformation provided by Virus Sweeper and remove it from the system as soon possible after detection, because this parasite won't help you to remove those infections. It's a scam designed to steal money from naive people. Please use manual removal guide stated below and remove Virus Sweeper once and for all. Related files: Virus Sweeper.lnk, exec.dll, PE.exe
