Please let me know if fellow LoL users have the following:

There are three processes always running, even when I am not playing LoL.

AFTAKC.exe
AFKASC.exe
RADService.exe

This software is installed in [C:\ProgramData\TRT] a hidden folder.

The contents of config.xml are:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<trt seq="0">
<arat esn="105DMWCVBFBA03429943">209.53.113.236</arat>
</trt>

This IP belongs to Absolute Software, which provides endpoint security and management. Including software which "allow you to track and secure devices and the data they contain, regardless if they are on or off the network."

There are virtually no search results when I google the processes above.

I would like an explanation of this, it does not seem to be a problem with MalwareBytes.

Thanks.

AFTAKC and AFKASC is not part of our install. RADService.exe is the patcher.

OP did you buy a computer from a major vendor like Dell? We usually offer Absolute (computrace/Lojack) software installed as a courtesy, and it'll also appear on most work computers. And since it resides in the BIOS its sticky and hard to get rid of. It doesn't hurt anything, but it's designed as a theft recovery tool.
