ScreenshotAntiSpywareControl is a corrupt anti-spyware application associated with the same group of rogues that include the notorious WinSecureAv and AntivirusPCSuite. AntiSpywareControl may be brought into your computer by a Trojan parasite that may infiltrate your machine through browser security exploits. AntiSpywareControl uses false error messages in hopes of scaring you into purchasing the full version of the program. The messages displayed by AntiSpywareControl state that your computer is infected with dangerous parasites that could be swept out of your machine by the full version, which, of course, is fake. AntiSpywareControl is not a legitimate computer cleanup tool and, therefore, should be removed from your computer system without any hesitation.
