Windows 7: What is OpenAL doing on the list of installed programs?

01 Mar 2017   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium

I had the same thing, and found that OpenAL was installed at the same time as Quik, which is software for a GoPro camera.
I have uninstalled both now.

Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

I had the same question about OpenAL. I read the replies, but my broader question is Why there is no Publisher listed. I am uncomfortable having any program installed in my computer where the Publisher is unknown or not listed. If the developer had listed the Publisher, it would probably have prevented many questions; but maybe that was the design. And yes I am paranoid about anonymous programs being installed on my computer without my knowledge. Just because ypu are papranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you.

Their is nothing wrong with a little paranoia. Paranoia is another layer of security protection.
