I've recently run a scan with HijackThis, and for the most part I believe most of the entries in my log are for processes which are ok. I am suspicious of the following entry though:

O4 - Global Startup: Start GeekBuddy.lnk = C:\Program Files\COMODO\GeekBuddy\launcher.exe

Is GeekBuddy a safe program, or could it possibly be Malware?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Hello jm956713 and welcome to the WTT forum.

GeekBuddy is a remote support service for Comodo and is quite safe and should be left to run at start-up if you have Comodo installed, (which it is - running at startop).

If you don't use Comodo, you may have installed GeekBuddy without your knowledge.

GeekBuddy is typically added when you install other free software that had bundled into installation of another download and can be bundled with the installers from Cnet, Softonic or other similar custom third-party installers.

At the end of the day, GeekBuddy is not a malicious program and if you don't have Comodo, you can uninstall it via the Control Panel in whichever version of Windows you are using.

Let me know if you have any more problems. If I don't hear back within 24 hours I'll assume that it is fine to close this topic.
