Have you downloaded ScreenUp because it offered interesting services? Have you downloaded it because it came as a free offer along with some other programs? Maybe you do not know how it got onto your computer at all? Whatever the case might be, our researchers strongly recommend removing this program because your virtual security might be on the line for as long as it is active. The latest research has revealed that this program can collect and leak information that is classified as personally identifiable. Considering that the parties whom this information could be leaked to are unknown, trusting the suspicious app is very risky. Needless to say, we classify it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP), and reliable anti-malware software should identify it as a threat as well. If you want to learn more before you decide whether or not to delete ScreenUp, continue reading this report, and do not forget to use the comments section if any questions come up.
The installer offered at screenup.ru does not work, and so it is possible that ScreenUp has been installed onto your computer via unreliable sources. Has it slithered in along with other suspicious potentially unwanted programs or malicious infections? If that is the case, a reliable malware scanner will help you figure that out. It is very important that you employ a legitimate malware scanner because you do not want to overlook any malicious threats that might be capable of hiding themselves. Once you know which threats you need to remove from your operating system, you can decide how to clean your operating system. As you can tell, we advise removing ScreenUp, and there are several reasons for that. First and foremost, although this potentially unwanted program is capable of capturing screenshots – which is how it is advertised – it does not really offer exclusive or unique services. Because of that, it is unlikely that you will want to put up with the security risks that are associated with this PUP.
ScreenUp does not have an uninstaller, and that is another reason we classify it as a potentially unwanted program because legitimate and reliable apps would not hide themselves. This can create problems when removing ScreenUp. If you choose to eliminate it manually, you have to find and delete the launcher file. If you are successful at that, make sure you scan your PC, and if other threats emerge, you have to eliminate them immediately. You can also install anti-malware software to clean your operating system automatically, and this option is the best if you are dealing with multiple threats, and if you need help protecting your operating system after that.
