Today when I connected with WiFi I got a small Blue Socket window on the bottom right of the screen. I had never heard of this company before. They are here: http://www.bluesocket.com/ The "wireless solutions" tab on their page says it's a 802.11abg WLAN solution. I killed the Window - I don't hit 'ok' on any Window that shouldn't be there. I am running a firewall and antivirus software - and they didn't catch this.
I'm not finding much on this with Google. I tried: "blue socket" wlan (malware OR virus OR trojan) -"blue socket firewall" (The last part is because there's a firewall by that name.)
I use this computer daily, and I have not installed any new software or drivers. I don't see anything named "blue socket" on my computer. (Search->All files and folders, Task Manager, Add/Remove programs, services, open connections (firewall) ). This is the first time anything has gotten through my firewall/antivirus software. I ran a full scan and nothing was found.
I don't have automatic updates enabled. I do all that manually so I'm on top of everything.
How did this unwelcome guest get on my computer - what is it doing - and how to I get rid of it?
