I have an ASUS Strix laptop. Since the last friday, each time I boot it, the first thing Windows does when I start a session is ask for admin privileges to run "A-Volute_3D_Sound_Experts" located at C:\Program Files\ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC\SS2\UserInterface\SS2UILauncher.exe, apparently from a verified publisher.
This is not a software I've downloaded or anything. So I press "No". Immediatly after that it shows another dialog requesting admin privileges to run "C:\Program Files\ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC\SS2\UserInterface\x64\SS2Svc64.exe", from an unknown publisher. I hit "No" again, and this last dialog appears 4 more times (5 in total).
I've called ASUS guys and they say they have no idea how this files got into my laptop. I've also tried removing the C:\Program Files\ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC\SS2\UserInterface\ folder with no success.
So, the question is: is this a driver for something in my laptop? How did this got into my files? How do I remove it or avoid it to try to run on every boot?
