I recently did a clean install of Java about a week or two ago. It asked whether I wanted the Amazon button app installed. I opted NO. It still installed anyway. I removed it from Control Panel -> Programs list and restarted, but
Amazon1ButtonService64.Exe is still running as a system process and has 2 .DLLs located in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Amazon\Amazon1ButtonApp.
I've tried several virus/malware scanners etc. None of them pick this up.
The issue I have is:
- At no stage did I provide consent to have this installed.
- Program is still running as system process, despite being removed and no longer showing up on browser or programs list.
As far as I'm concerned, this is malware.
Failing safe mode removal, what other options do I have other than an OS reinstall?
