Motive Smartbridge Autoupdate
« on: Tuesday 12 June 18 18:39 BST (UK) »
Hi.  I need some advice.

When I turn on my computer I get the following: -

Motive Smartbridge Autoupdate
"The system cannot find the path specified".
OK

At this point I have just been cancelling it by pressing X.
Then I get : -


"An error has occurred!  Click OK to restore configuration"
OK.

Again, at this point I just cancel it by pressing X as I am uncertain if I should press OK.

Then I get : -

"Motive smartbridge autoupdate has encountered a problem and needs to close,  We are sorry for the inconvenience."
Send error report     Dont Send.

At this point I press don't send and can use my computer as normal.

What is it and do I dare press OK?

Mo,

A quick Google search suggests that this is Spyware.   Without carrying out a great deal of reading, it appears to be automatically installed when first loading an ISP (possibly).   Most of the posts are pre 2010 and quite a few reference Verizon.

My gut reaction would be to remove the program and associated folders and files.   Maybe someone with experience of this particular program can give you more advice.
