bservice.exe and wd.exe in C:\Program Files\Bench\ - Removal Instructions

I was playing around with another software download that bundles lots of unwanted application. This time I discovered a new folder called "Bench" under "C:\Program Files\" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\" when installed on a 64-bit machine. I also found a new process running named bservice.exe:

bservice.exe in the Task Manager


There was also a file called wd.exe added as an automatic startup which caught my attention. It turned out that wd.exe is detected by many of the anti-virus program under names such as Adware, Ransom.dxTrojan.Crossrider and Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT. Ouch!

You can remove the "Bench" software by checking bservice.exe, wd.exe and updater.exe in FreeFixer:

bservice.exe in the Task Manager

updater.exe as a scheduled task


Hope this helped you with the removal.
