Scorpion Saver – adware that delivers other PUPs such as Level Quality Watcher

Scorpion Saver virus

Scorpion Saver is an adware component that displays pop-ups when users surf online shopping sources such as Amazon, Walmart, eBay, AliExpress, Facebook, and others. According to a victim of this PUP, the program appears in the Program and Features section after a successful installation.[1] The adware can show up on web browsers such as Chrome, Explorer, Firefox, and others. It is known that Scorpion Saver can bring additional PUPs to the system such as Yontoo, FBPhoto Zoom, Superfish, 1Click Download, and Level Quality Watcher that is created by Adpeak Inc and boots up within every computer startup process. The adware also adds its main file ScorpionSaver.msi to the computer system that allows it to carry out its activities. However, the potentially unwanted program can also alter locations such as the Task Manager and Registry.

Questions about Scorpion Saver

Scorpion Saver has earned the name of a PUP and adware that provides speculation about this app's distribution strategies. It is no secret that PUPs use deceptive tactics such as “software bundling” and comes together with freeware or shareware to enter the user's computer. Another user has reported that the adware virus has shown up after he downloaded a scan to PDF by Softi Scan from a third-party downloading website named Cnet.com.[2]

A lot of users appear to have trouble with uninstalling Scorpion Saver virus from their computer system/web browsers and the infection rate appears to be very high according to the number of victims' reports all over the Internet sphere. One person claims that he is unable to uninstall this adware program and receives the following message while trying to delete the PUP from the Programs and Features directory:[3]

The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.

Scorpion Saver is a potentially unwanted application, which is usually mixed with virus or malware. In reality, this program cannot harm your computer directly. However, it can be blamed for unfair distribution methods and annoying activities that are initiated when the user starts browsing on the Internet. Typically, this adware is used to distribute a lot of different advertisements that report about discounts, coupons, sales, price comparisons, and similar content. If you ever spot advertisements from Scorpion Saver, they might be marked as:

  • Powered by Scorpion Saver;
  • Ads by Scorpion Saver;
  • Scorpion Saver advertisements;
  • Provided by Scorpion Saver;
  • Scorpion Saver ads.

Scorpion Saver might try to benefit from the cost-per-click technique[4] by gathering as many clicks on the advertisements as possible. No matter how trustworthy they look, these ads are displayed just for trying to redirect people to related websites that seek to increase their page rank or sales somehow. Some of these redirects might take the user to potentially malicious websites that can increase the chances of getting unknowingly infected with dangerous malware such as a Trojan virus.

Scorpion Saver is an adware virus that can redirect the user to odd sources

In addition to Scorpion Saver redirects that are caused as soon as the victim clicks on one of its continuous advertisements, this program may easily start tracking the victim and collect data that is related to his/her search terms, mostly visited websites, entered data, PC's information, etc. We do not think that you should agree to reveal such details to unknown parties because they use them for targeted advertising or sharing with other parties for income.

Scorpion Saver might also tend to change major settings in web browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, and Microsoft Edge. The adware can apply modifications to the browser's homepage and new tab URL sections. Additionally, it might add questionable-looking extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons that also need to be terminated while completing the Scorpion Saver removal process, otherwise, the adware might easily return.

Another reason to remove Scorpion Saver is the fact that it can bring other potentially unwanted programs to the computer system. Nevertheless, some developers use adware as a malware distribution source, so you should be careful after the adware attacks. Search your entire computer system with antimalware software for potential threats. If you discover some system corruption, you can try fixing things with Reimage Reimage Cleaner software or any other similar helpful program.

Scorpion Saver needs to be removed as soon as you spot the first symptoms such as advertising and redirecting. As we have already mentioned, the program can bring suspicious/malicious components to your computer system that need to be avoided in order to prevent system corruption. Nevertheless, if you keep this program on your machine for a long period of time, you might find yourself struggling to perform simple activities and programs crashing due to intense activities.

Scorpion Saver - adware that gets downloaded in freeware bundles from websites such as Cnet.com

The infiltration techniques of adware apps

According to cybersecurity experts from ZonderVirus.nl,[5] adware programs are mostly distributed by 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 from third-party downloading websites such as Cnet.com, softonic.com, download.com, and others.

This distribution method is legal but it really initiates various discussions on the Internet and has already been named as “suspicious”. For preventing such unexpected downloads, you should pay more attention to the installation process of the freeware. If you want to see all optional components and get the ability to opt-out of them, you should select the Custom or Advanced installation of the freeware. After that, you should uncheck all suspicious checkboxes. 

Additionally, adware apps can get spread through infectious advertisements and hyperlinks that are left on third-party websites. You should always avoid visiting unprotected sources that are marked as unsafe to proceed with by your web browser or antivirus tool. Also, do not click on every component that you see while browsing the Internet sphere. Install Adblock Plus to prevent unwanted advertisements from appearing on your computer screen.

Removing Scorpion Saver virus from your PC and browser apps

If you want to get rid of continuous pop-up ads from Scorpion Saver virus, you must remove this program from the system properly. Additionally, you should check the system for other potentially unwanted programs that might have been brought by the adware application.

    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.

    I could not remove ScorpionSaver or ScorpionSaverService programs from my control panel. Would not let me remove the main prgram but when I tried to remove service program, it said unknown program trying to run and I aborted the attempt.

    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.

    December 2nd, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    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?

  28. Jeff says:
    December 6th, 2013 at 5:03 am

    Answer yes, and let the program uninstall.

    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.

    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 http://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.
