View Full Version : E-Scorcher

Anyone have any experience with this one? It's an anti-virus (so it claims) that pays for itself by launching popups. There's been reports of it doing web-based installs Gator-style.
I'm looking for any information about it anyone might have. I plan to test it tomorrow.

At any time and for any reason eScorcher users may unistall the software. eScorcher consits of 2 parts. eScorcher antivirus and supporter5. You need to go to your start menu, select settings and choose control panel. Then click on add/remove programs. You need to select eScorcher and click "remove". Then select supporter5 and click "remove".
I also saw some lines that suggest it is adware/spyware (and your IP address could be an asset that could be sold/transferred).
