Windows software saver is a fake anti-spyware tool that may look legitimate, but it is a fake and bogus program in reality. It finds loop-holes in your computer system security and enters illegally in your computer system. When it enters your computer system, it does not ask for your permission and installs itself. When the installation is completed, it scans the computer system and shows a long list of files infected with viruses.
