Windows 7: Found this little goodie messing with MSE & Malwarebytes

Jack,

It doesn't sound like you would, but did you by any chance use Windstream's in-house security program?

From reading your thread I found that Verizon Fios (Vz) uses a Verizon Internet Security suite, it's a knockoff from Radialpoint:
Quote:
Verizon Servicepoint is an application used by the Verizon Internet Security Suite services to deliver up-to-date information on security issues to subscribers, to ensure that the software or updates required for services subscriptions is delivered and ready to use, and to allow Verizon Online to communicate with subscribers regarding Verizon Online services.

Source: What is VerizonServicepoint.exe? | Task Manager Process Information
When I had Vz installed I told them that I didn't want to use any of their security services. I checked through my machine and didn't find any VerizonServicepoint.exe files or the ones from Radialpoint on this list either; SystemLookup - Radialpoint Servicepoint.exe - O23 List. Looks like Virgin Com/Media, Rogers, Bell, and TelUs use it also.

Scroll down about half way to "Our Clients" to check the logos: Radialpoint. Your Windstream is there plus the others I mentioned earlier.

I'm a little miffed though, Vz's not listed!

Never install any software from your internet company for that reason

andrew I didn't know they installed the program while they were trying to trouble shoot the problem I was having with access to the internet. Things had changed on my computer so I went looking for the reason and that is what I found. The Windstream programs is gone and things are still working as they should.

No problem. Was just a general statement
