Mirageiso might look like a reliable application, but its looks can be deceiving. We have classified it as a potentially unwanted program because we have found that its shady publishers use software bundles through which this application can get onto your PC uninvited. On top of that, this application leaves junk files after you run its uninstaller. The actions outlined here make this program potentially unwanted, but not malware. It is in the grey area, so you can keep it if you really want to but you can also remove it especially if you got it on your PC unintentionally.

Mirageiso is promoted as virtual drive used for mounting ISO, MDS, MDF, CDI, CUE, and other image files. While you may find it useful, it is likely that you can get it on your PC accidentally as we have found that its promotional website at Mirageiso.com does not feature its installer download.  We have obtained information that suggests that this application is being bundled with third-party software and uploaded to freeware distributing sites. The installers featured on those sites may have been configured to install this program automatically. And, while you may be able to deselect its installation after selecting advanced or custom settings, the installer will hide Mirageiso’s installation.

If you get it on your PC, then it will connect to its server at 45.76.66.188 and check if it is running in a virtual environment such as virtualbox or vmware. While you might be able to use it to mount image files and get access to their contents, you might not have wanted this program, so why keep it. If you choose to uninstall it, however, it will leave a file named vtuiso.sys in %WINDIR%\System32\drivers and %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\drivers\vtuiso, so you will have to remove them manually. If you choose to leave these junk files, that is fine too because they do not do anything without the working program, but if you want your computer to remain clean, then you might want to do that.

Now let us discuss the origins o this program. According to this program’s website at Mirageiso.com, it was created by Sichuan Zhoushan Weizhen Technology Co., Ltd. Unfortunately, there is no additional information such as the country of origin, but the name itself implies that it is allegedly based in China as Zhoushan is a city/province in eastern China. The lack of information about this company and the fact that it is based in China makes it difficult to determine whether the company actually exists. Regardless, whether it is real or not, it is evident that Sichuan Zhoushan Weizhen Technology is as shady as they come, so you should no trust Mirageiso to deliver you a reliable virtual drive function.

If you got Mirageiso accidentally and want to remove it, then we invite you to make use of the instructions we have included below. We recommend that you run its uninstaller from Control Panel and then and then delete its leftover files manually.
