EpicScale can be downloaded at, where you will also find more information about the application. However, we do not assume that you acquired the application willingly because this is not at all likely for users. Researches show that EpicScale gets distributed with uTorrent, so if you recently installed or updated the application, you should not be surprised that you are seeing ads by it. What is more, users also complain that during installation they were not informed about the setup of EpicScale and therefore were not given the chance to opt it out. This makes it obvious that the application is distributed silently, without permission, and that you need to maintain your system better if you want to keep such programs away from the PC.

Although EpicScale is supposed to function only when the computer is not used, it will still make your CPU work harder, using a lot more energy than usual and this will result in higher electricity bills.
