ScreenshotSoftSafeness is a fake security program that comes from the same family of rogue anti-spyware programs BlockDefense, SystemCop and SafetyKeeper. SoftSafeness usually returns several fake results from an attempted system scan once installed. In addition, SoftSafeness is able to popup many bogus on-screen notifications to further confuse computer users to the point that they may purchase a full version of SoftSafeness.

SoftSafeness is usually installed and promoted from a malicious website or trojan horse infection. SoftSafeness does not have the ability to detect and remove parasites or spyware infections.
