That's text book behavior for a virus. I don't care what the program's called or what it's supposed to do, especially if what it is doing is for the benefit of someone other than the owner of the computer.

found this software on a different pc with kies installed. so one with and one without.
I have to agree with IainB post. as far as I can tell this software was used by the samsung store for DRM and also signed content so it could be played on older samsung phones/mp3 players.
it uninstalled without issue too.
