Hello aka rotten and welcome,

 

Where exactly are you seeing this program, in your Add/Remove Programs list, or on your desktop??

 

Mobogenie is supposedly a program for your computer (looks nice here), with which you can manage your Android phone...However, it looks to be quite malicious from here. Open Candy and Conduit are nasty, but still relatively easy to remove.

 

Now that I've downloaded it, I'm going to take a better look at it. In the meantime, please answer these questions so that I can provide better help and suggestions for your particular system:

  • What version of Windows are you running (Windows XP, Vista, 7)?
  • Does this program start automatically everytime you startup your computer?
  • Do you have any other problems with your computer?

EDIT: Mobogenie does not appear to be overly malicous, but certainly displays many ads and is also very pushy. This program is questionable in the antimalware community, but not considered malware. I have uninstalled it on my own machine (it leaves the installer file on the desktop behind, but not much else). Choice on removal is ultimately up to you! :)
