Advanced ScreenSnapshot

Advanced ScreenSnapshot, as you can guess by its name, is supposed to be an application that creates screenshots in an advanced way, whatever that may mean. However, we found some questionable traits about this program while we were testing it. Therefore, we have labeled it as a potentially unwanted program, a PUP. For starters, it is quite possible that you do not even know how this application has got onto your computer. No wonder if you do not remember installing it, as this PUP seems to be spread via bundles, which is a rather questionable means of file distribution. We are not trying to say that Advanced ScreenSnapshot is a dangerous infection that you have to remove right away. We are simply trying to point out certain suspicious behaviors this PUP has been exhibiting. If you continue reading this article, you will find out more about the potential risks and how you can delete Advanced ScreenSnapshot if you decide to do so in the end.

As a matter of fact, we have not found an official website for this PUP where you could directly download it as a standalone installer. Instead, we have discovered this application travaling bundled together with malicious software installers. That means only one thing: Your computer is not safe anymore, as there may be several threats running amok and exposing you to potentially dangerous third-party web content. Another rather worrisome thing about this PUP is that it can also download additional malware applications from the net. This should be more than enough for you to want to remove Advanced ScreenSnapshot.

Most people do not even realize it when they download an infected bundle. This is possible because these are mostly promoted on questionable freeware and torrent sites. It is very easy to click on a misleading button or link on a site that you are not familiar with. The trick most schemers tend to use is to disguise their ads as either download or next-page buttons. The reason is obvious and rather obnoxious: to trick you into clicking on them. But once you click, you might download a whole bunch of malware infections instead of a free software or movie you actually intended to have on your computer. If this has happened to you, it is important that you delete Advanced ScreenSnapshot and check for infections that may be present on your PC. You can, for example, use a free online scanner to do that.

We are sure that you can find other ways or applications that are more reliable than this PUP. It only takes a bit of time to research it. In fact, this is also what we suggest before wanting to download any software. The reason for this is simple: You may find out in a minute that the software is not that reliable at all or even that you should remove it from your computer. Fortunately, Advanced ScreenSnapshot makes it easy for you to clean it from your system since it has a working uninstaller. So all you need to do is find the uninstaller in the list of installed programs in Control Panel and run it. Please note that you can protect your system from similar unwanted programs and even malware invasions if you implement a reliable antimalware application.
