What is "launcher-service.exe"
It is connected to Comodo firewall.
apparently it could be a malware.
Any suggestions???

As far as I know launcher-service.exe is not related to Comodo firewall. What makes you think it is?

When you check the properties of launcher-service.exe can you find more details about its publisher and function?

Hi ANICCIA,
The launcher-service.exe file is part of Comodo GeekBuddy (Service name is CLPSLauncher).
Comodo GeekBuddy is an opt out/in default selection during install.
Check Windows Programs and Features for Comodo GeekBuddy, if present and not required it can be removed without effecting the Comodo Firewall.

I learned something new today. There are various programs using the launcher-service.exe name but missed that one while doing a quick Google search.
