ErrorSweeper is a rogue program. Unlike Trojans and viruses, rogues do not reproduce once it enters the system. Typically, a Trojan infection may lead victim into this rogue application. Trojans will alter Internet browser configuration and redirect it to a malicious web site that host the installation file of ErrorSweeper.
Just as any fake anti-virus programs, ErrorSweeper attempts to mislead victims by exhibiting a number of fake security alerts. It also shows several infected files found on the system through its own virus scan simulation. These detected threats are fake and do not exist on the computer.
