ClipGenie is an adware program.

This program is capable of installing by itself once it enters a computer that is compatible with it. It collects specific information about the advertisements its users view without their consent, and may also register personal data such as street addresses, telephone numbers, zip code, or even credit card information.

It is hazardous to a computer's capabilities because it constantly downloads media content to its user's hard drive without direct consent. This gives it the potential to install other malware without the users knowing or consent, and there have been reports of this occuring. It is also known by the name MediaLoads.

This program is similar to a backdoor.

This software first began to appear in 2003. The company in charge of its existence is New Harmony Enterprises, stationed in the United Kingdom.
