Hi,

I was looking at my Program Files (x86) and there is a folder in there called MarkAny with a sub-folder called ContentSafer.

I looked online and found this: MarkAny - Tech Support Guy Forums

Well here at TSF atleast doing a DDS scan means it can be a virus. Do you guys think it could be a virus? or Should I just remove the folder.


I have no idea where or when it was installed. It does not show up in Add/Remove in Control Panel.

This is a program installed from Samsung MP3 players to combat illegal downloading. You can go to Add Remove Programs and Uninstall ContentSafer.

ContentSafer isn't under Add or Remove.

Maybe it wasn't installed but just a sitting folder?

Boot into Safe Mode, Make sure if the program has icon in the System Tray by the clock that is disabled. Use the CCleaner/Tools/Uninstall option to uninstall the program. Once it is completed, boot into Safe Mode again and in CCleaner Search for ContentSafer. Delete any instances of the file. Then do another search for MarkAny. Delete any instances of the file
