Remove Security Scanner rogue (Uninstall Instructions)

Security Scanner is another product by notorious counterfeiters of security solutions. Its distribution is powered by several trojans and worms, as well as chains of websites persuade people into equipping their working stations with the security solution that turns out to be irritating and destructive trojan and a complete ignorant in threats recognition.
Once downloaded and installed onto computer the rogue retrieves basic system information and sends it to remote server. The remote server sends back further instructions, which may include the order to execute self-deletion. Most likely such order is issued, if IP does not satisfy a given criteria. Perhaps, users of Third World Countries would not be bombarded with the adware popups as it is unlikely to  benefit on their meager incomes so that the malware simply  abolishes itself. In the meantime, most of the users infected need to remove Security Scanner and require relevant extermination help. To get rid of Security Scanner and real viruses, get assisted by free scanner available here.
