Spyware.Sa_PCSpy.b is a commercial spyware program that logs keystrokes, Web sites visited, programs used, and file and folder activity. It also has a screen capture logger and can be automatically run in a silent, undetectable mode.

These actions are configured in the program's Settings menu of Ssmgr.exe. When the program is in silent mode, it cannot be accessed until it is brought out of silent mode. This can be done with a hot-key combination (the default combination is Ctrl+Alt+Y).

Spyware.Sa_PCSpy is similar to another commercial spyware program that is detected as Spyware.007Spy.b. The main difference is that Spyware.007Spy.b can send logs through FTP and email, while Spyware.Sa_PCSpy.b does not have this feature.


One or more files are detected as Spyware.Sa_PCSpy.b.


Spyware.Sa_PCSpy.b must be manually installed.
