The truth is that it performs no actions after installation and leaves the system intact; nevertheless, we recommend that you remove it from the computer.
More specifically, Eakona Updater creates one or two executable files, which are located in the ProgramData folder, and a Windows task, which starts every day at a certain moment. It has been observed that the task is created for no clear reason because nothing changes at the time when the task is launched.
We have categorized Eakona Updater as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and want to urge you to remove Eakona Updater from the computer because this program is also flagged as unreliable by many computer security software programs. Due to the fact that the program does not exhibit any distinctive behavior, some of the security programs detect it is a Trojan.
As the name suggests, the program may have been aimed at searching for updates for certain programs.
