    EasyAntiCheat appeared from nothing

    Hello. I was just looking through my services tab in task manager, when I saw EasyAntiCheat. Why is it running? I'm not playing any games. So my question here is: Why is EasyAntiCheat running in background when I'm not playing games?

    It probably was bundled with something you had previously installed.

    Right click on the entry in the Services list and select Search online. It might be able to tell you where it came from.

    I would uninstall it if you don't recognise the program. It should be in your list of installed programs? If not, you can use Autoruns to disable startup programs and services you don't want.
