Total-scan.com is a typical browser hijacker that displays fake infections and reports false threats to scare you into thinking that your computer is infected with malicious software. It impersonates Windows "My Computer" view to make the whole scam look more realistic as if it's actually scanning your PC but in reality it's just a script that displays Windows OS system icons and infections near each icon. Besides, it displays the same infections for all users. Total-scan.com was made to promote the widely spread fake antivirus program called Security Tool. This rogue program displays fake warnings and prompts owners of the compromised PCs to pay for a full version of the program to remove the supposed infections. If you were somehow redirected to Total-scan.com and installed the rogue program, then please follow Security Tool removal instructions to remove this virus for free using legitimate anti-malware programs. Good luck!
