VSnapshotTool is a questionable application that claims to be "the most convenient way to take a customizable screenhot"; however, we have found that this software can sneak onto your system without your permission. Due to a number of suspicious traits this software may exhibit, we have labeled it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). This PUP is digitally signed by ShenZhen Zhihuimen Technology co., Ltd but its EULA claims that the owner is Wisemana, Inc. This application is very similar to another one that surfaced two years ago called Advanced ScreenSnapshot. We cannot say that this application does not work at all; in fact, it may even have extra functions, such as downloading malware in the background, which can pose a threat to your system. Since it is quite unlikely that you install this program knowingly and from an official source, your computer could be infected with a bunch of malware threats as well that may have entered your system along with this PUP. We do not think it is a good idea to keep this software on board no matter how innocent it may look. In fact, we suggest that you remove VSnapshotTool from your PC along with all other threats you may find.
This PUP has an official webpage, vscreenshot.com/en/index.php, where you can download it directly. In all fairness, this page looks professional enough even if it has limited information about this tool. Well, on the other hand, you cannot tell long stories about a screenshot maker, right? But even if this page is out there on the web, there is little chance that a lot of users would find it. Therefore, there has to be another alternative way to spread this PUP. This is when free software bundles come into the picture and you will learn shortly why it is a good idea to delete VSnapshotTool for starters.
Bundling was originally used by legitimate software developer teams who packed ad-supported programs with their free software to try to make money in order to be able to keep their software free for the public. Unfortunately, schemers saw a great opportunity in all this and have been using bundles ever since to spread PUPs and malware infections as well. Thus, a bundle can contain all kinds of threats that can sneak onto your PC in one go if you are not careful enough. It is very important that you pay close attention to every step of the installation process because the screens may reveal browser setting changes and the installation of other programs as well. If you fail to opt out in time, you may install this PUP and a couple of malicious programs as well "silently" in the background, not even realizing.
If you would like to avoid similar infections, you should not visit suspicious websites that host questionable third-party ads. Also, you should make sure that your computer is not infected before you go online because adware programs, for example, can expose you to unreliable third-party content while you are browsing. We recommend that after you delete VSnapshotTool, you scan your PC with a reliable online malware scanner to be able to identify all possible threats.
This PUP is a simple program that can take screenshots of your screen. You need to select the area on your screen and simple double-click inside it to take a snapshot. This would be all fine but we have found that this program also has the capability to download malware programs in the background, without your knowledge. Now, this is rather suspicious even if it remains a capability and does not even use it. If you are a security-minded computer user, you should not tolerate such an application since it might infect your computer with more serious threats. It is really not worth the risk. Therefore, we advise you to remove VSnapshotTool from your computer as soon as possible.
Fortunately, it is quite easy to eliminate this potential threat source. You need to open the installed programs list in Control Panel and activate the uninstaller; it should take care of it and leave no leftovers behind. Please follow our instructions below if you are not familiar with this. Also, keep in mind that this may be the least of a threat on your system. Therefore, it is essential for you to go on hunting down PUPs and malicious threat until your PC is all clean. If you could not do this manually, we suggest that you employ a trustworthy malware removal application like SpyHunter that can automatically detect and eliminate all known threats. Protect your precious virtual world with decent security software if you do not want to ruin your online experience as well as jeopardize the health of your files and data stored on your computer.
