ScreenshotSpywareRemover is a malevolent parasite cloaked as a trustworthy anti-spyware application, and may be downloaded and installed onto your system by a Trojan through security system gaps. Once SpywareRemover is executed, it will perform a fake scan of your system and will display bogus warning messages stating that your security and privacy is violated by dangerous parasites. SpywareRemover will then try to trick you into purchasing its full version to eliminate the parasites it "detected". Immediate removal of SpywareRemover is strongly recommended.
