What is Advanced ScreenSnapshot

As claimed by developers, “Advanced ScreenSnapshot is the most convenient way to take a customizable screenshot”. While this application may provide the promised screenshot-related features indeed, its distribution means employed by the creators make it categorized as an adware-type program. The reasons for that are virtual layers abused by cybercriminals to display obtrusive and irrelevant ads over innocent pages. Advanced ScreenSnapshot may be able to promote various banners and ads redirecting users to unwanted or even dangerous pages. Adware applications are also notorious for their ability to track and gather sensitive data (e.g. passwords, IP addresses, geolocations, etc.). Users having Advanced ScreenSnapshot installed may be susceptible to the above-mentioned threats to a tangible extent. It is also worth noting that Advanced ScreenSnapshot might not be the only adware application being spread around the web. It may very well have several clones promoting unwanted changes under the disguise of useful capabilities. We, therefore, recommend you deal with ScreenSnapshot and delete it from your computer as soon as possible. More information on this can be found in our guidelines below.

How Advanced ScreenSnapshot infected your computer

Adware is common to be distributed via targeted ads or third-party software. Targeted ads are paid ads you may see on various pages that promote different content. Advanced ScreenSnapshot could be one of them claiming its usefulness and value to people. Another popular method of spreading Potentially Unwanted Programs is classified as “bundling”. This vector implies the usage of third-party installers (pirated, free, cracked, etc.) as a buffer to deliver promotional offers. Advanced ScreenSnapshot could be hidden inside of “Advanced” or “Custom” installation sections but overlooked by users while installing software. Thus, it is very important to deselect everything alien inside of installation set-ups to prevent inadvertent installations.
