Do you know what ScreenUp is?
There are a couple of variants how ScreenUp could reach its users. Strangely, the software’s homepage is not one of them as the provided download button does not allow to obtain the application’s installer. This makes it possible to think the PUP might be distributed through other channels, e.g. questionable file-sharing web pages. There the tool could be bundled with other unreliable programs like adware, potentially unwanted programs, browser hijacker, and so on.
Most of the software installers are bundled with at least one or a few suggestions of additional tools, and they are often set to be installed automatically if the user does not deselect them himself. Therefore, to keep the system safe and clean from unwanted applications, users should find time to read the terms provided by the configuration wizard carefully. Just do not forget that to see all of the terms you may have to select advanced installation settings. Another option we would recommend is having a reputable antimalware tool on the system.

This is the part where ScreenUp’s usage could become risky. If the PUP begins displaying third-party advertising no one reviews, there probably would be no guarantees such content will not be malicious. In other words, there is a risk some of the targeted ads could advertise malicious software, threats similar to this PUP, web pages offering to participate in fake surveys or lotteries, and so on. Under such circumstances, we advise you not to risk with this suspicious program and use Snipping tool or other reliable screenshot applications.
Fortunately, erasing ScreenUp is not so difficult, and there are even two options to choose from. Clearly, one of the ways to get rid of it is to use the removal guide prepared by our specialists; you can find it a little below this paragraph. If you choose to deal with the PUP manually, you should just complete these steps one by one. Should the instructions appear to be too complicated or there are more threats you need to deal with, we encourage you to use a reputable antimalware tool instead since it can detect and erase multiple threats at the same time.
