Yappyz is a potentially unwanted program, made by SIEN S.A. According to its website, it’s “the premium entertainment platform that brings you Yappiness.” It also brings you annoyance. While running, Yappyz also creates a button on the bottom-right corner of your Desktop. If you decide to try a new game, Yappyz installs it on your computer, cluttering your screen further, by adding an icon on your Desktop. We don’t believe that the functions this program offers are worth the hassle. You should remove it.
While Yappyz is supposed to be a game manager, it installs a new Internet browser, called yappyz, on your computer. This browser is based on Chromium, and contains a lot of extensions that belong to Yappyz. We found that this potentially unwanted program slows down your Internet and takes a lot of RAM to keep running. You can fix this by closing it, but it will auto-start with Windows the next time you boot up. There’s been some evidence that it also shows you ads on its own program, probably due to containing some files from Iminent toolbar, that’s been linked with adware.
