\Skillbrains\lightshot\LightShot.exe

This came up on Zone Alarm and Win Patrol asking me for permission to run at start up. Tried Googling it and couldn't find information without paying for it or buying scanning programs.

I never heard of it before and certainly didn't download it.

Any info on what this is?

RE: \Skillbrains\lightshot\LightShot.exe

There it is under Java in the program list.

Java(TM) 6 Update 31 (Version: 6.0.310)

lightshot-2.0.1.5

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware version 1.60.1.1000 (Version: 1.60.1.1000)

Could be a screenshot program too.

RE: \Skillbrains\lightshot\LightShot.exe

Should I leave it? I never heard of it before but it shows up as 1st on my Task Manager. It was trying to get in my start-up.

Thanks Zep,

RE: \Skillbrains\lightshot\LightShot.exe

LightShots by Skillbrains is a screen capture program that I have used for ... quite a while. It recently updated, so winpatrol would show it adding to start up with a version update.

There also seem to be versions specific to browser make as plug ins .. in addition to the one windows does it all version.

I just downloaded the standard does it all version awhile ago after hearing someone say it compromised their computer... and scanned it Malwarebytes & MSE. Uninstalled mine ./ Reinstalled it.... Then scanned my computer. Checks out safe for the regular version.

Push your print screek key ?? it should give you an area drag box.

RE: \Skillbrains\lightshot\LightShot.exe

Please see my posts regarding Skillbrains, etc. on the thread regarding saving shots from Power Point shows. I am wondering if the thread posted several days ago regarding bots from Russian websites has any relation to what happened to me.

RE: \Skillbrains\lightshot\LightShot.exe

Thanks for the info. I tried pushing Print Screen and nothing came up. Regular Print Screen works fine, I don't notice anything different.

I found it in add/remove and took it out.

Thanks for the help,
Jane

RE: \Skillbrains\lightshot\LightShot.exe

Wow, I just installed it and it works perfectly. When I press the Print Screen key a small dialog box appears beside my cursor with the words 'select area' and allows me to choose the area of the screen that you want to capture. I like it much more than Snagit.
