Overview

Mobogenie is a software program developed by Beijing Yang Fan Jing He Information Consulting Co. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named mobogenie.exe. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 45 files and is usually about 44.39 MB (46,546,384 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 20% of users of Mobogenie come from the United States, it is also popular in Brazil and India.

To uninstall this Mobogenie/ DaemonProcess.exe, do the following: Open the Task Manager and click on Processes. At the same time, open the Program Files folder where this is located and press Shift+Delete on it. When it prompts you to permanently delete it, go to task manager and End the associated process. This thing starts automatically. So u need to be quick and permanently delete it before it starts again.

@Cyber Bob :) The absurdity that this program does is that it always automatically (somehow) enables itself on that startup list on every reboot. I even tried to delete the registry files but they reappeared just like the latter after I restarted my PC.

Is Mobogenie secure, (i.e. does not install malicious apps on your android and that the company is reputable enough to be responsible with your data by not selling it or otherwise misusing it?
