Is GameConsoleService (Wild Tangent) a virus?

Asked by Russter (242 points ) August 27th, 2009

I’m looking in my msconfig on my computer and I noticed in my services that something is running called “GameConsoleService”, and under the manufacturer column it says “WildTangent, Inc.”. What is this? I mostly just want to make sure this isn’t a virus or something. I’m on Windows Vista.

Not a virus, but it is reported as malware.

And here’s how you can remove it.

not a virus, but the controller for WildTangent games that either came bundled with Vista or you downloaded.
