Hello, I’m on a Windows 10 Lenovo laptop and I just noticed that “UrBackupClient” was listed as an “enabled” Startup App under Settings>Startup even though I have no memory of installing it and my computer has never been out of my physical possession. I just disabled it to run on startup now. I do not know how Urbackup works, so apologies if my questions below sound paranoid.
Basically I’m wondering where those backups have been going and who controls/has access to them. There is no UrBackup in my start menu or when I search the whole machine, so it doesn’t seem to be a program I can manually run or configure. Nothing about Urbackup is in my stored passwords. Under Settings>Apps & Features I do find “UrBackup (remove only)” listed with the date 9/25/2020, which I assume is the installation date, but my only option if I click on it is “Uninstall”. I have not yet uninstalled as I’m hoping to understand where the program came from and what it has been doing. Could UrBackupClient have been remote-installed piggybacking on another program installation, and if so is this a hostile installation?
The same 9/25/2020 date listed for Urbackup is shared with several other apps I very plausibly installed, most likely soon after buying the computer: Adobe Audition 2020, Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe Digital Editions 4.5, Adobe Illustrator CC 2018, Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client, Drawful 2, GPL Ghostscript, GSview 5.0, PokerStars.net, Scrivener, Steam, Tabletop Simulator, Tabletopia, TAP-NordVPN 9.21.2, Tokaido.
Maybe PokerStars is dangerous? Or another gaming app?
There are also some programs with the 9/25/2020 date I don’t recall, but they sound harmless to me: Intel PROSet Wireless software, Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable (6 versions), Mozilla Maintenance service, VLC media player, Vulkan Run Time Libraries 188.8.131.52, Windows Driver Package - Lenovo Monitor (08/16/2018 6.09.01.0).
Thank you in advance for any information!
