EZ Software Updater - Removal Instructions

Do you see a process named EZ Software Updater.exe in the Task Manager or a EZ Software Updater version 1.0.0.0 listed in the uninstall list on your machine?

If you wonder where the EZ Software Updater came from, it is likely that you got it from a software bundled. That's where I found it, packaged with a free software download.

I've uploaded the EZ Software Updater.exe file to VirusTotal and only Symantec detects it, as WS.Reputation.1:

I'll follow up to see if any of the other anti-virus programs detects it later on. 

If you are looking for info on how to remove EZ Software Updater you can use the entry in the uninstall programs list, or if that for some reason did not work, you can remove the EZ Software Updater.exe file and the service by checking the two items in FreeFixer, as shown in the screenshot below.
