I have searched the forums and uninstall list on this site and cannot get any results for "jukebox.exe"

 

The Java update tool on my Windows 7 laptop keeps asking me to allow permissions to update "Jukebox.exe."

 

I have no idea what this is (not in list of programs in control panel), and given Oracle/Java's recent history of vulnerability, I'm concerned about updating whatever it is. I did a google search, and the top couple results were sites about how it's a trojan and offer "free PC scans," so I'm unsure if it actually is maleware, or if those sites are...

 

I am running a Malwarebyte's scan right now, we will see if there are any results.

 

Anyone who knows what this is, please advise.

 

Thanks!

Hello, do you have Slacker Software Player installed?? It should be slacker.jukebox.exe

 

If you do a search for "jukebox.exe" where does it say it is. The path looks something like C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc... post yours.

So that's the thing, I don't have slacker installed, and I can't find any location for jukebox.exe (searched from start menu).

 

It just pops up an update request notification from time to time (just like it does for Java). That's why I'm concerned, because I can't find anything it would be updating. The only Oracle published program I have is Java 7 update 15.

What if you search or Slacker??

 

BTW Java is now Version 7 Update 17

 

Was MalwareBytes clean?

 

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
•Close all open programs and internet browsers.
•Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
•Click on Delete.
•Confirm each time with Ok.
•You will be prompted to restart your computer. A text file will open after the restart.
•Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
•You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.


>>>>

Now I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan

  • Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the esetonlinebtn.png  button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.

NOTE:Sometimes if ESET finds no infections it will not create a log.

You are going to hate me....

So I don't have slacker, but apparently it was just trying to update Java, because I installed the newest version and the notifications have stopped. I guess it thinks jukebox is installed and that is the first on the list of things to update or something.....

Malwarebytes came out clean BTW :)
 

I really appreciate the reply, sorry for waisting your time.
