ScreenshotSpywareZapper, which is a clone of BPS AntiSpyware Remover, is a rogue anti-spyware application. Usually it is installed by a Trojan, through browser security exploits or under dubious circumstances without your knowledge and permission. As soon as it gets into your system, SpywareZapper will show you an exaggerated scan report claiming that your system is infected with false errors and imaginary threats. By doing so, SpywareZapper tries to trick users into buying the commercial version of the program.
