Mobilegeni daemon?

Hi

I have Windows 7 and under programs running on start up I found this Mobilegeni daemon

I have run the Microsoft security essentials and the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool, and neither say there is anything wrong.

Is this something I need to remove from my computer, and if yes how?

Thank you

Answer

It's a PUP.

I suggest you remove it.

Virus & Malware Forum Moderator Stephen Boots describes PUPS very well in a previous post: "PUPs are "potentially unwanted programs" and Microsoft (as well as other major antimalware companies) tread lightly around PUPs. These programs are typically installed as the sponsor program for shareware/freeware that you chose to install."

Suggest you run Malwarebytes Free and AdwCleaner and eliminate this program from your computer.

Go to http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ and download, install, update and run the free version – just follow the prompts.
