I think its a threat
SAFErating from user Someone (Variant: 52313)
It seems to be safe. After the EZ activator (kms.exe) is used, it attaches itself to win32 which makes it suspicious. Fortunately some antivirus remove it eg., Avira
SAFErating from user JG (Variant: 52313)
Activator for MS Office 2010. Only thieves uses them. I got 2 license MS Office Pro Plus for £38, totally legit and I don't need to look over my shoulder
SAFErating from user zeratul (Variant: 52313)
It's safe. As mentioned, just a service used to keep ms office 2010 activated
THREATrating from user DoomSKunk (Variant: 52313)
Threat! Warning: it tried to solicit information (My Password) when I ran another application (Game called Granado Espada GE.exe), but was detected by AVG and I immediately moved it to vault and deleted it.

SAFErating from user Dotkay (Variant: 52313)
This is SAFE, and part of Office 2010's activation crack. The file returns a FALSE POSITIVE from antivirus software because of commercial treaties with Microsoft: Microsoft wants people to pay for a license instead of cracking the software and using it for free, so they pay security companies to flag software that is HARMLESS to the user as malware, for the single and exclusive reason that it makes them LOSE MONEY.

used for crack activation of the Microsoft Office 2010 suite - safe but illegal lol :P
SAFErating from user Leandro (Variant: 52313)
It's not a treat.
THREATrating from user Admin (Variant: 52313)
This file is detected by many antiviruses as malware.
SAFErating from user Invernessell (Variant: 52313)
This is a safe file needed for crack activation. Ignore all the 'threat' comments as it is 100% tried and tested safe. It inserts a registry key and a office crack and is incorporated into the system. My system is fine.

SAFErating from user Mark (Variant: 52313)
Safe. I used it to activate Office 2010.
SAFErating from user lol (Variant: 52313)
Safe, is a crack and harmless
SAFErating from user hbukhat (Variant: 52313)
this file is completely safe. what you guys are experiencing is a false-positive due to Microsoft. this is because they want us to BUY it. just to let you know I scanned it kaspersky 2011 and also commodore and both said safe. and it is also not a rootkit.
SAFErating from user firstname.lastname@example.org (Variant: 52313)
kmservice.exe is a activator for office 2010....but i dont know if use serial it be like that....coz im use crack..KMS activator
SAFErating from user FB (Variant: 52313)
It's part of an Office 2010 activator application. ESS gives me a false positive about it, but it's safe to have it.
SAFErating from user vvv (Variant: 52313)
office2010 activation service
SAFErating from user xenover (Variant: 52313)
Safe, it is a part of the Office 2010 activating service. Do not worry about this file.
SAFErating from user stry (Variant: 52313)
An Activator Service for MSOffice 2010 Activator (typically if you've 'pirated' MSOffice 2010). It runs as a service, but, buyer be ware, you never know. If things start going wonky you know where to look. Otherwise, I suffer no issues from it.
SAFErating from user metoo (Variant: 52313)
Keygen/Crack, simulating Microsoft Activation Server File is running as a service, waiting for activation requests from Microsoft Office 2010. Microsoft Office 2010 will need reactivation every 180 days, so as long as the service is running you do not have to care about it.
THREATrating from user mike (Variant: 52313)
i believe this is a threat as the exe was attached to my explore and my mal-ware anti bytes and AVG 9 detected it
SAFErating from user Man (Variant: 52313)
Appeared after using an office 2010 activator. Simulation that makes office think its legit when serial is looked up. False positive report.
THREATrating from user benjamin040 (Variant: 52313)
I have found kmservice.exe as well in windows7. I do use ms word 2007 but not 2010. I use AVG virusscanner and its results is that kmservice might be a threat. So what is the next step. Qurantaine or delete or ignore it?
THREATrating from user MikeOne (Variant: 52313)
As has been said, this file should be an activation service, but it is not signed and for most antiviruses it looks like Keylogger (not a virus). Proceed with care, it can be target for many viruses.
SAFErating from user itsnolongerme (Variant: 52313)
As wassup said, it's related to an activator for Office 2010. MSE flagged the file today but I told it to ignore.
SAFErating from user wassup (Variant: 52313)
The file KMService.exe is part of the mini KMS-activator for Microsoft Office 2010. Without this service, the activator won't work.
