Anyone heard of this "seekservice.exe", seekservice127.exe, .dll, .jar and uninstall.exe?
I'm running a pc w/windows xp sp3.
I downloaded some free video conversion software which turned out to be a bait and switch.
I uninstalled it using Add/Remove. After the uninstall, a message popped up reading that the software had been removed, but some files were left that I must manually remove (are you kidding me?).
Turns out the software in question, created and left behind several folders and files for me to tend to:
c:\ProgramFiles\SeekService\uninstall.exe, seekservice.exe, seekservice.dll
In addition, I found files in my Firefox directory: seekservice.jar and seekservice127.xml
I can see in the task manager that seekservice is running both .exe and ''127.exe
I'm rather apprehensive removing this unknown malware via the convenient "uninstall.exe"
so "kindly" left behind in c:\ProgramFiles\SeekService\uninstall.exe, as referred to in the directory
It appears to be invisible to Avg free (8.5), Malwarebytes, Root Repeal, and SuperAntiSW.
So far I haven't found much info Googeling this malware.
Is is a simple rightclick delete?
How I should proceed in safely removing it?
Thank you in advance
