As I understand it:

It's something that Riot installs on your machine so that they can transfer game files faster and more easily. Basically it shifts some of the load from their machines on to your machine. It's usually such a small amount that you'll never even notice it. It's completely harmless except for that and you can feel free to uninstall it whenever you like.

It's a peer-to-peer app that people use to download the game. It sucks up a ton of bandwidth and is not required for anything but downloading the game.

Basically, Riot is offloading the cost of some of its bandwidth to its users. Delete it immediately.

I love how it is also captured by MalwareByte and Anti-Virus as an incoming attack on your network. Good work.

To top it off, Kaspersky thinking LoL is a KeyLogger.

Here's how to deal with Pando Media Booster.

Go to programs, look for Pando Media Booster, and uninstall. Then reformat your hard-drive, remove it from your computer, spread the blood of lamb on the sides (sheep works too in a pinch), drive into the desert, bury it, and place the Mark of Christ upon the spot. For this blight upon the land is unholy ground, and only the power of Christ and the good will of the Lord can restrain the corruption buried beneath the sands.

It's just as dangerous as win32. Delete it, and if you have win32, immediately delete that too.

yea, as said, its a P2P program, some other games use it for downloading the install files. uninstall it when you can.

the problem with pando, is that it will totally clog your tubes without providing you with a better download speed. it's a terrible program, but hey, RIOT is still using adobe air, so, they're all about using cheap **** for their game.

Pando Media Booster is the unholy child who weeps the blood of virgins. It summons tainted souls into the realm of the living. PMB and LOL go together like love, marriage, and ritual infanticide. The center cannot hold it is too late. The force of Pando Media Booster and your computer together in the same conceptual space will destroy your mind like so much watery putty. If you do not uninstall the PMB you are giving in to Them and their blasphemous ways which doom us all to inhuman toil for the One whose Name cannot be expressed in the Basic Multilingual Plane, he comes. PMB will liquify the n​erves of the sentient whilst you observe, your psyche withering in the onslaught of horror. More̿̔̉x- and Z are the cancer that is killing LOL it is too late it is too late we cannot be saved the trangession of a chi͡ld ensures Morellol will consume all living tissue (except for Zileas which it cannot, as previously prophesied) dear lord help us how can anyone survive this scourge has doomed humanity to an eternity of dread torture and PMB establishes a breach between this world and the dread realm of c͒ͪo͛ͫrrupt entities (like nerf entities, but more corrupt) a mere glimpse of the world of Xyph​e will ins​tantly transport a player's consciousness into a world of ceaseless screaming, he comes, the pestilent slithy Morellol-infection wil​l devour your L​L client, application and existence for all time like Visual Basic only worse he comes he comes do not fi​ght he com̡e̶s, ̕h̵i​s un̨ho͞ly radiańcé destro҉ying all enli̍̈́̂̈́ghtenment, trollz lea͠ki̧n͘g fr̶ǫm ̡yo​͟ur eye͢s̸ ̛l̕ik͏e liq​uid pain, the song of re̸gular exp​ression parsing will exti​nguish the voices of mor​tal man from the sp​here I can see it can you see ̲͚̖͔̙î̩́t̲͎̩̱͔́̋̀ it is beautiful t​he final snuffing of the lie​s of Man ALL IS LOŚ͖̩͇̗̪̏̈́T ALL I​S LOST the pon̷y he comes he c̶̮omes he comes the ich​or permeates all MY FACE MY FACE ᵒh god no NO NOO̼O​O NΘ stop the an​*̶͑̾̾​̅ͫ͏̙̤g͇̫͛͆̾ͫ̑͆l͖͉̗̩̳̟̍ͫͥͨe̠̅s ͎a̧͈͖r̽̾̈́͒͑e n​ot rè̑ͧ̌aͨl̘̝̙̃ͤ͂̾̆ ZA̡͊͠͝LGΌ ISͮ̂҉̯͈͕̹̘̱ TO͇̹̺ͅƝ̴ȳ̳ TH̘Ë͖́̉ ͠P̯͍̭O̚​N̐Y̡ H̸̡̪̯ͨ͊̽̅̾̎Ȩ̬̩̾͛ͪ̈́̀́͘ ̶̧̨̱̹̭̯ͧ̾ͬC̷̙̲̝͖ͭ̏ͥͮ͟Oͮ͏̮̪̝͍M̲̖͊̒ͪͩͬ̚̚͜Ȇ̴̟̟͙̞ͩ͌͝S ̨̥̫͎̭ͯ̿̔̀ͅ
