Do you know what Virus Sweeper is?
Virus Sweeper is a fake anti-spyware program known to be an updated version of the rogue anti-spyware program Virus Doctor. Both Virus Sweeper and Virus Doctor are scams that only want to take your money in return for a bogus application that does not remove or detect spyware.
Virus Sweeper is a program that when it is installed starts to perform actions such as scanning your computer without your permission. Virus Sweeper's scan is totally fake as the results are made-up. This is a typical tactic used by rogue anti-spyware such as Virus Sweeper to make you think you must purchase a full version of Virus Sweeper to remove the infections.
In non-techie terms:
Virus Sweeper may come from a Trojan infection or malicious website. Virus Sweeper should never be voluntarily installed or purchased under any circumstances or you may end up losing about $50 to $80 of your hard earned money.
