# Windows – Is AtherosSvc Safe

Securityserviceswindows 10

I have been looking through my services and noticed a service called "AtherosSvc" which has no description. It struck me as odd, as it is one of 10 services with no description, however all the others I know exactly what they are and what they do from their name. I did a quick google search and found that some sites called it a trojan, others said it was safe, and yet others said it was required for windows to function properly.

I am looking to know if AtherosSvc is safe and if it is, what does it do?

• Path to executable: C:\WINDOWS\system32\AdminService.exe
• Startup type: Automatic
• Log on as: Local System account
• If this service fails: Take No Action
• Dependencies: None
