I installed it last night and was showing it off to some other people. Today when I logged in my firewall told me that a service I had never heard of was trying to act as a server. At first this had me a bit myphed but then I remembered the last thing I had done last night; install SBB (Sky By Broadband). So I pulled up my services panel and saw a new service called KService.exe running. I did a quick google and found that its a service installed along with SBB. That’s also when I found the above page. It turns out that SBB is a peer to peer application such as Emule, Kazaa etc.

    I found that too… What (if anything) did you do to get rid of it. I have sent an email to SKY asking them what data this program is uploading, but so far they have not replied. I intend to uninstall the sky by broadband service if they do not get back to me soon, as all you seem to be able to do is to watch the videos…

It is the 41st Millenium. In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war. The Emperor of Mankind wages a constant battle to protect humanity from the horrors of space. On the fringes of the Imperium, alien races lurk and plot, and chaos demons leak into our reality from the torment of the warp. All that stands in their way are the mighty Space Marines. They are more than mortal. They are steel, and they are doom. They are the champions of mankind. And the greatest of them all… are the Ultramarines.
