It appears I downloaded it to my phone, I thought it was an rw or android update.
It is a virus. Removal instructions here:
It is nothing to do with RW or Android. It appears that it will install itself if you visit certain websites perhaps. I googled it and read this: Mobo genie and why does it download automatically? - Android Forums
Thanks, the video is for windows 7, I have vista but I figured it out, basically (for vista) just "remove program" also running full virus scan.
I HATE it when one of these pieces or c$%p tricks me.
Nothing, and I mean nothing, should download and install itself to your phone without your permission when you're doing nothing but looking at a website. I just installed an anti-virus app a couple of days ago. I'm glad I didn't wait any longer. Looks like mobogenie is makin' the rounds.
It looks like I did not get it on the phone, maybe the desktop. What should we be running on our moto x and why isn't RW directing us to this?
All computers I have bought for the last 20+ years come with AV software.
Yep, on the desktop.
New computers typically come with a trial version Norton AV, or such, which is junk (in my opinion). They pay the computer company big bucks to have their program pre-installed. After 30 days, it starts nagging the h**l out of you to upgrade to the paid version.
For your phone, you have lots of choices. I recommend Avira or 360 Mobile Security - Antivirus. But, you can choose for yourself: AV-TEST - The Independent IT-Security Institute: Jan 2014
If you are using Windows just install the free Microsoft Security Essentials. It doesn't put spam on your email messages and it gets updated daily by Windows Update.
While MSE is nice and efficient, everyone has to take notice of it's limitations. It has now been more seen as offering only baseline protection when compared to other services.
Goodbye Microsoft Security Essentials: Microsoft Now Recommends You Use a Third-Party Antivirus
meh...none of those 3rd party A/V solutions are impenetrable and it's very easy to find yourself infected even with paid software. Common sense really has become a lost concept these days and companies make millions from it.
I read through that twice and conclude AV performed the tests that ranked itself No. 1 and I couldn't find a link supporting the claim that Microsoft recommends not using their own software.
It's not that they don't recommend using their own software. I think I was trying to get at was more for us to realize that installing any A/V software will not offer perfect protection. Microsoft works well, some others may work better, but the best protection is safe browsing habits.
The filled in boxes decrease the score?
The boxes fill from right to left?
This is a German co. right?
Or is white a filled in box? From the left?
They should use x's or ck marks, not colors.
