Have you looked in Windows service panel to see if some service failed to uninstall? Isnt it ad supported also? Maybe something else to remove via add/remove programs panel?
I can assure you that those have been the places I've checked far before I would post here. Almost insulting, lol. Take no offense, I appreciate it. Great minds think alike.
HSS is ad-supported if you do not purchase the VPN's elite service.
As of now, it seems to me that anchorfree has hooked into executables bolded below...
After some analysis, the ports 135 (Distributed Computing Environment (DCE), 49154 and all other pre 49 numbers are nonsensical. The 9990 and 1001 after also no good news.
I will check the call stacks now.
EDIT: Apparently this holds some truth since procmon crashed instantly on launch... Procmon is not compatible with my version of windows. Also, apparently, a 64-bit version is included in the procmon.exe file, binded. I attempted to extract it, and the file does not work anyways.
This looks like an infection, but I can assure you, no infection here.
