I would like assistance on some bad-looking thing called 'ScorpainSaver'.

Avast had detected it 'new and uncommon', and I agree with it. I don't remember downloading such a program. So, I need help with the removal. I used a program called CCleaner to uninstall it, surely it was gone. Two days later, Avast came up with the same message about ScorpainSaver, so it probrably is still lurking my system. ScorpianSaver hasn't caused trouble itself, but I don't feel comfortable knowing something harmful is out there. My system opperates Windows 7. Can anyone give me assistance on to how to get rid of it, once and for all? Thanks, anything is appreciated. I'm new to this website by the way, so if I seem slow, please excuse me. :>

Hello Mar mar and Welcome -

“Scorpion Saver” is an adware program that displays coupons, advertisements and sponsored links via a pop-up box on Ebay, Walmart, Amazon, Facebook and other websites that you are visiting.
Scorpion Saver is typically added when you install another free software (video recording/streaming, download-managers or PDF creators) that had bundled into their installation this adware program. When you install these free programs, they will also install Scorpion Saver as well. Some of the programs that are known to bundle Scorpion Saver include 1ClickDownload, Superfish, Yontoo and FBPhotoZoom.
First thing to do is check Programs and Features for any signs of the program that you can remove.


Next -

Please download and run RKill by Grinler. A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear.

You have removed 2 potential sources of the problem =>

MusicManager\MusicManager.exe (PID: 5092) [UP-HEUR]

HKCU\SOFTWARE\ScorpionSaver (PUP.Optional.ScorpionSaver) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully


I left the Data Sheet (or parts of it) in my first reply so that you may see if there were any related programs that you had downloaded in the last few weeks -


How much is the problem still annoying you ?


Thank You -

As far as I've noticed, noting relevant to ScorpionSaver has occurred. About Music Manager, I didn't know I had it installed, so I deleted it.


Thanks for all the help, and I'll keep you updated if anything happens. :)

No problems -

I will keep this on my Watch List for a couple of days still.

If it pops up again we can look at other options for you -
