Block Scanner

Block Scanner is a rogue security application that was developed by cyber criminals as a tool to trick users out of their money. When certain Trojans infect a computer, they will download Block Scanner secretly and without the user’s permission. Once installed, the rogue will run fake system scans that produce false results. It will then pressure the user to buy the full version of the program. However, this version is just as powerless as the “trial” version that is forced upon users. On top of this, the rogue harasses the user with a bunch of fake security alerts.

Due to its deceptive and invasive methods of promulgation, it should be removed from your computer as soon as you detect it. In order to remove it manually, stop the following processes:

BlockScanner.exe
zxj6.tmp.exe
[RandomNumber].exe
uninstall.exe
111249acztool1ef5.exe
1649zt5oj447.exe
vwc4.tmp.exe

    I had a problem with “Block Scanner”… Every time when I was trying to go online, IE redirected me to another site called BlockScanner.com. And there was a program with the same name that wanted to scan my pc every time I was started it up. It came up of nowhere and I didn’t know what to do. But I finally found SpyZooka and that really helped me. Thanks!
