SP.exe Protects Modifications by Adware and Browser Hijackers

pcExperts warn that SP.exe is in fact linked to a browser hijacker that has been delivered to the affected machine as a part of Spigot adware. So instead of protecting your search engine provider or homepage of any unpermitted changes, SP.exe supports browser modifications performed by adware and browser hijackers. Any attempt to restore the initial settings of your browser will be blocked by SP.exe, or if you succeed, they will be saved until the next time you restart your computer.

Fact is that SP.exe is not considered as high-level threat because it does not have password stealing features, and it cannot erase any of your files.
