Claria.ScreenScenes

Screen Scenes isn’t itself an adware/spyware program.  It is designed to deliver screen savers.  Screen Scenes was developed by Claria, once known as GAIN, which was once known as Gator.  With all three aliases, Claria is an acknowledged spyware developer.  Thanks to a number of class action lawsuits related to spyware violations, Claria is now out of business.  Although Claria doesn’t exist as a business anymore, the spyware they created is still “in the wild” and presents a current threat to Internet users.

Screen Scenes, although not a spyware application in and of itself, is delivered bundled with various spyware apps.  The End User Licensing Agreement from Claria explicitly says that when you download Screen Scenes, the user (you) agrees to let Claria scan their computer for browsing history and cookies, and that you will accept pop-up ads from them.  The problem with Claria’s EULA with all their software downloads is that the user never gets to see the EULA unless they specifically ask Claria to show it.  In the EULA, Claria also makes it known that uninstalling the Screen Scenes program by using an antispyware program is in violation of the EULA, and doing so will render the application useless.  Claria says that the only legitimate way of removing Screen Scenes is by using the Add/Remove Programs function.

Although the Add/Remove Programs function will uninstall the Screen Scenes application, it will not touch the spyware that came with it.  Pop=up ads will still be delivered to you, no matter how long it is after you uninstalled Screen Scenes.  Though you owe the company nothing, you should remove Screen Scenes first by using the Add/Remove Program, and then use ZookaWare PC Cleaner.
