Looks like it's part of a malware removal tool called Freefixer.

I see more attributions that this executable is malware than a legitimate file.

SEEKSERVICE129.EXE has been seen to perform the following behavior:
Found on infected systems and resists interrogation by security products
Uses low level functions to hide itself from the user and from system/security processes

SEEKSERVICE129.EXE has been the subject of the following behavior:
Created as a new Background Service on the machine
Copied to multiple locations on the system

Thanks for the help. I will follow all of you guys advice and track it down on my machine. I run Cleaner Glary Utilities as well as Malwarwbytes and they did not sound alarm on it. It did sound off the wall and jsut started hitting the firewall....so out it goes.
