What is genupdater.exe?

What is it?

Genieo Updater is the software updater program which runs in the background of Windows and automatically starts up when your PC boots. It checks for software udpates and automatically downloads and installs them if found. Genieo is a web browser framework that tries to automatically discover, manage and filter feeds according to users’ topics of interest.
Description of genupdater.exe from the publisher
Genieo Software is a desktop application which automatically generates a personal start page with relevant content and ad-hock personalized news widgets. Unlike other start pages, Genieo Software doesn’t use predefined topics. Instead it auto generates a set of micro topics, based on the user’s areas of interest. Once installed, Genieo Software continuously locally indexes and maps your web activities, such as favorite feeds, news and content, search history, cookies stored in your computer and other browsing history, in order to discover your personal fields of interest and needs, and to provide you with your personalized start page based on such profile.
