Yes! It came with my Lenovo! and as soon as I downloaded Avast and Malwarebyte anti-malware they removed it!
I was thinking.. wtf? A brand new laptop! no way it's an actual malware.
But after a few weeks with my Lenovo laptop, I realized that if they make such a low quality device in terms of hardware and materials, they probably don't care about software as well.
I will never buy Lenovo again, hope you do so as well, horrible warranty, no wonder it's only for 1 year.
This was my first experience of "You get what you pay for", next time I will stick with the better companies even if it will cost me a few more bucks.

* I was thinking maybe the best way would be to create an installation media directly from Microsoft website and install a clean Windows 8.1? Shouldn't it work as well? I mean, my laptop came with so many junk softwares that I wonder if some other malwares are hidden there. . .unbelievable :mad:

I hate to say it, but bundled software is what makes a PC affordable and not so expensive(compare the prices on a Microsoft Signature PC and the exact same at Media Markt, Best Buy, Euronics or whatever large chain in your area). I just install then after setting up download Geek Installer and purge(taking a look at Should I Remove It if I think I do like something. Then run Ccleaner, and look for leftovers with UIltraSearch and RegEdit. But make sure you don't start/install any of the bundled stuff especially the AV that comes with it. Oh yeah for the AV go to their sit and use their uninstaller. Then make a system image and custom refresh.

Yeah I could do a clean install, but my way is much more fun and informative.

On my Lenovo desktop there was nothing worth saving, and to add insult to injury their useless modern apps from the app store hang around in my apps because there is no possibility of deleting past apps there except the hard way: a new Microsoft account?!!

My ASUS laptop at least had some useful stuff: Sonic Focus, a backend for windows media player enhancements SRS WoW effects or their stuff for the built in camera Life Frame3, WinFlash, ATK Package; ASMedia USB 3.0 controller. But Lenovo only had finest Bloatware.
