1. What is SuperSpywareKiller?

This program falls into rogue security software category. It is dropped by a Trojan.Zlob which is subject to generating similar to real Microsoft Windows warning popups. Program tends to exaggerate computer scan report in order to scare user about system instability and make him believe that SuperSpywareKiller is the proper way to solve the problem. Actually, using SuperSpywareKiller as spyware remover will not solve any computer security related problems. This program is a scam, trying to cheat user and persuade him to buy full software version. Add/Remove Programs utility will not remove SuperSpywareKiller completely, because of a trojan which remains on the computer and keeps displaying fake security alerts. It is recommended to remove rogue PC security software as soon as it has been noticed or detected.
