Do you know how to make screen captures on your computer? Do you do that to share them with your friends? Applications like iScreeny come forward offering you an instant sharing feature, but, before you give in to the temptation to install this program, perhaps you should find out more about it. On top of that, if iScreeny is already on your computer, and you have no idea how it arrived on your system, perhaps that is the best reason to remove this application. iScreeny is a potentially unwanted program that is often associated with multiple computer security problems, and you most definitely have to do everything to avoid those.
We believe that iScreeny was installed on your computer together with other undesirable applications. Although the official homepage for iScreeny is still online, we were not able to download the application from iscreeny.com. The download link is dead, and it redirects us to an error page. Nevertheless, there are still users who complain about this application “infecting” their computers, and that is why we are sure that the program gets distributes in software packages. This assumption is only confirmed by our research, which shows that iScreeny usually comes in a third-party downloader that users accidentally trigger when they roam file-sharing websites.
This also means that you can avoid installing potentially unwanted software on your computer by reading all the installation steps carefully. Unfortunately, users often fail to take note of all the information the installation wizard offers. Hence, potentially unwanted programs like iScreeny get installed on target systems, and users think they have been infected with malware. This is where we would like to say that iScreeny is very far from being a malicious computer infection. It is just one of the many applications that fall into the gray area, and their effect on your computer depends on the third parties that exploit them.
Some users may think that as long as they ignore the side functions of this application, they might as well keep it and enjoy the benefits. Unfortunately, the advertising service seems to be the only function of iScreeny that does work. During our tests, we have found that iScreeny does not take any screen shots, and it does not allow you to share any media via social media platforms. In other words, the program is completely useless.
Please delete this dysfunctional application and protect yourself from any potential threats that might be coming your way. If you need professional assistance, you can always leave us a comment or invest in a legitimate antimalware tool.
