Screen Addict

If you consider yourself a huge movie fan, who is looking for a program to acquire the best access to free online streaming services, we highly advise you to bypass a program called Screen Addict. Even though it is promoted as a tool that provides access to such services allowing you to see your favorite movies and various upcoming trailers, you must be informed that our team of malware researchers has classified this piece of software as a potentially unwanted program after conducting an in-depth analysis of it. Such category has been assigned to this application mostly because it exhibits quite a few intrusive features, which could consequently change your overall online experience for the worse. By allowing this application to run on your computer you will experience fundamental changes to your web browser’s default settings. Functionality like that is the main reason we highly advise you to remove Screen Addict from your operating system. Read the rest of this report and find out how exactly this potentially unwanted program functions and why we firmly advise its complete removal. Below we provide detailed instructions that you should follow in order to terminate this questionable application once and for all.

Screen Addict might seem like a beneficial program at first sight. It is important to note that a full functionality of this potentially unwanted program is rather dubious because it rarely provides an opportunity to stream a free movie. In the majority of cases, this suspicious tool will allow you to watch trailers for various upcoming movies. Such quite limited functionality, we believe, is not enough to keep this tool active on your computer, especially knowing the fact that this potentially unwanted program also operates in a rather annoying and invasive way. Once this unwanted piece of software enters your operating system, it will trigger changes to your web browsers default settings. It will alter your default search engine and home page without any notification, which is annoying, to put it mildly. Such changes will modify your overall web browsing experience for the worse. For as long as this dubious application will be active on your computer you will be forced to start you web browsing session on a questionable third-party site as well as you will virtually have no choice but to use the newly appointed search engine whether you like it or not. To restore the normal performance of your web browser, you must delete Screen Addict from your computer. If you fail to delete this potentially unwanted program as a whole, the changes made by it could still be present.

Another questionable feature that was a factor while classifying Screen Addict as a potentially unwanted program is the fact that in some cases it could be distributed via bundled installers. Such means of distribution are rather alarming. This is so because such installers usually host quite a few questionable programs. If you happen to use such a setup file, it is likely that you could end up allowing an installation of some intrusive program to take place without realizing. This is the reason it is imperative to pay your utmost attention to every single setup procedure; at times, you might be presented with a chance to cancel the installation of some undesirable program. Also, you should stick to downloading your software from official developers’ website only since questionable third-party download sites are infamous for being the primary source of software bundles. If you are a security-conscious user, you should implement a professional antimalware tool if you do not have one already. Such a tool is an imperative part of your virtual security as it can detect and delete any suspicious program in an instance.

The complete removal of Screen Addict is the only way that you can revert the changes made by it. The instructions that we provide below will help get rid of every single bit of this potentially unwanted program. At times, such manual removal might be too complicated for some non-advanced computer user. This is why we strongly recommend using a professional antimalware tool in order to get rid of Screen Addict. Such a tool will help you terminate this undesirable tool in an automatic way without encountering major problems.
