Never go to this site! If you should go on it by mistake CLOSE IT IMMEDIATELY because otherwise you will get popups wanting you to download an "antispyware" program which really is spyware. If the popups should appear, press Ctrl-Alt-Del and close your browser.

i was unable to visit this site. Spybot S &D blocked it in its host file immunization.
127.0.0.1 www.scannerantispyware.com
127.0.0.1 scannerantispyware.com
:D
Avast! and Spybot S &D (Passive protection; Spybot set the hosts file to redirect me to myself each time I tried to reach these thus blocking them) can block known malicious sites. They did so several times yesterday while I was rating sites for WOT under Sandboxie. :)

Its one of the plethora of the antivirus2009 gang's sites

If you see a scan starting on your hard drive then Ctrl+Alt+Del and get to Taskmanager immediately and end the browser.

The bit about hitting the old three fingered salute,control+alt+del is good advice.I have been reading if you get a malware attack and hit the red boxed x for close it can make things worse.If you think you are under attack follow YoKennys advice and give it the three fingered salute.

Most people know what ctrl-alt-del is all about, but they don't remember it when it really is necessary. I'm making a club/website about the Internet, and I should give it a page about this. I've had spyware, just because I used the Red X.

Idk, but on Windows 98 ctrl-alt-del immediately stopped all processes until you finished. On WinXP, it simply opens a new window. If the computer is busy, that can take up to half a minute - more than enough for a trojan to install!

Another option.Right click on task bar,click on task manager and end process.This takes time to but if clicking on the x close makes things worse not many options left.

Takes even 8 seconds for the rightclick menu to appear... I simply don't understand why microsoft took that safety feature out.

Does the site overcome NoScript? (Very important addon, it may seem annoying at first but once you set up the whitelist (Like most HIPS stuff) it's virtually unnoticeable and it blocks a lot of harmful stuff. Same with AdBlock (Which already has a whitelist and block list configured. :) ) I would be very concerned if it did but in my experience a fake scanner page does virtually nothing (Unless you click on a link etc) with NoScript enabled. :) Viewing the page source for one fake scanner showed that page would auto-execute a script upon someone visiting and was even configured to do certain things based on the browser (Which version of IE) the user was using[I don't remember what exactly]. :| The source I saw mentioned Internet Explorer so I assume the site would try to use vulnerabilities in IE to initiate drive-by downloads etc. In addition a bunch of tracking cookies were also applied. I was under Firefox with NoScript and AdBlock under Sandboxie at the time so I suffered no harm. :) If you really don't want to risk visiting these sites at all then edit your hosts file or download a good hosts file from elsewhere [Trustworthy source!] (Or use Spybot S & D's immunize feature) to block these sites from even loading. Simply set the site to redirect to localhost if you want to do it manually. :) [127.0.0.1]

Just have your firewall STOP all Internet Activity. I know ZA does it ("Lock"), and I'm sure others do too. ZA does it pretty fast.

You probably should familiarize yourself with how your firewall does that function, so you don't have to poke around for the setting and lose valuable time.
