If you use µTorrent as your torrent client, it is possible that this application has silently installed EpicScale onto your machine. We advise that you remove this potentially unwanted program because it might not seem as innocuous as it wants you to believe. First of all, the fact that this program is installed without your permission should not be ignored because legitimate software generally does not behave this way. EpicScale is a BitCoin miner which is promoted as a program that utilizes “unused processing power to change the world”. In other words, when this program gets onto your system, it starts mining bitcoins (digital currency) in the background, and then donates proceeds to charities.
Though EpicScale can be downloaded from the official site episcale.com, it reaches target computers mainly bundled with the µTorrent installer. If you download the latest version (3.4.2) of this torrent client, it is possible that EpicScale will also get dropped onto your computer as well. Though the aim of this application might seem noble at the first sight, not all users want to engage in charity; therefore, the surreptitious installation of this program can be construed as aggressive. We advise that you remove EpicScale because you do not have to keep the program which was installed on your system without asking your authorization.
You might not even notice EpicScale being active if not for the sudden decrease in your computer's performance. This potentially unwanted program is known to rely on huge processor and memory resources to mine for digital currency. Also, EpicScale can be suspicious as it might never reveal how much profit it generates and how much of it reaches charities. As you are never sure that this program does its job properly, remove it immediately. The said official site does not provide any specific information about the charities EpicScale works with; thus, the effort might not seem convicting to allow this program to use your computer resources. Would it not be more fulfilling to engage in charity directly? Remove EpicScale and find a more transparent way to help the world to be a better place.
You should delete EpicScale because it does not only slow down your computer, but also can be regarded as manipulative, and even aggressive. There are two ways how you can approach the removal of EpicScale: manual and automatic. We always recommend that you choose automatic antimalware tools because they are the best at terminating not only EpicScale, but additional infections that might be on your machine. In order to help you with the manual removal, we have provided you with the instructions on how to do it the right way.
