System Maintenance Service
System Maintenance Service is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that gets onto a computer without the user’s permission alongside freeware programs. One of the programs, known as Free Coins, or C Drive DeskTop App, enables computer users to receive notifications about computer games. The program provides the user with electronic currency that can be redeemed towards various games on different websites. Alongside notifications informing about games available for download, you may also find third-party advertisements. The purpose of such advertisements is the generation of revenue, because the C Drive program itself is available at no charge. It is highly advisable that you ignore those advertisements, because some of them may be aimed at deceiving you.
Unlike the C Drive program, System Maintenance Service does not, and you may not suspect that it is present on the computer. System Maintenance Service starts running automatically once you log onto your computer. Due to the method of installation, the System Maintenance Service may be referred to as a Trojan horse. Interestingly, the behavior of this program depends on its creators, which means that it is difficult to define its behavior.
