Name FindService.exe


The ActualNames software is an address bar search hijacker targeting IE and Netscape.
It also contains components to sending mail from various applications and web sites.
However, these functions are not working.

The software may or may not install with ActualNames/BrowseProxy, an ActiveX installer component, depending on how it was installed.
Bundled with KazaaMate. Also to be installed by ActiveX drive-by download from some pop-ups.
It doesn't advertising or privacy violation.
ActualNames can silently download and execute arbitrary unsigned code from its controlling server, as a self-updating feature.
ActualNames/BrowseProxy is also a severe security hole as it allows any web site to execute arbitrary programs.

Automatical removal:
Go to the Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs feature, choose 'AdvSearch' and click 'Remove'.
And use antivirus (also check How To Remove section)Startup Optimizer to remove it from startup.

Manual removal:
In the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.
Delete the 'BrowseProxy' entry pointing to 'FindService.exe'.
You can also delete the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Olivia Corp to clean up if you like.
