Process name: SecuROM User Access Service

Product: SecuROM User Access Service

Company: Sony DADC Austria AG (sonydadc.com)

File: UAService7.exe


SecuROM User Access Service is a copyright protection program by Sony DADC Austria which is required for CD-ROM based games by Sony and other developers who purchase or license the program to prevent unlicensed copying. It appears on a system after a game is installed that uses it. Once it is present it can allegedly cause severe interference with the CD/DVD drive or cause computer restarts. Legal CD/DVD burner software can have problems with it. The recommended change is to make it start manually rather than automatically, by running "services.msc" and changing the setting for "SecuROM User Access Services (V7)" from automatic to manual start. It will then activate when the actual CD-ROM game is played but stay off otherwise. If you want a detailed security rating about your UAService7.exe (and all other running background processes) read the following user opinions, and download the free trial version of Security Task Manager. http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/uaservice7.exe.html 

Note: Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk. If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection! Check it out!

Its only the service of Securom version 7 . Securom comes with installations of copyprotected games. Its hard to uninstall this shit after uninstalling the primary applikation. U can stop the service in the management console and delete the entries in the registry calls securom . 2ms
It came with a software I installed . Called UD agent , which runs calulations for scientific projects while your PC is not used by you. I uninstalled this UD agent, but this UAservice7 stayed. I'll try to get rid of it. gno
If it si related to a game install I suspect that it might be Half-Life. It is the only game that I have that requires an internet validation each time it is played. John
This is a decoder used for accessing CDs protected by SecureROM. It is legitimate and is often used by games. Removing the file will render such games unusable.  See also: Link C. Forbin
Came with "Act of War: Direct Action" seems to be anti-piracy. Can't seem to remove it and it remains even after uninstall of Act of War Agent Propagandi
you need it to connect to your virtual drives Danik
i think, it starts when you play bf2
begin to play games is danger itself rebits
provides access to cd image files
Installed with Trackmania. Maurino
It's rated with 77% rating as potential dangerous, if you don't need it terminate it, I recommend to buy Security Task Manager (follow the link) it gives an overview of all potential dangerous processes & drivers with the ability to terminate them (delete or quarantine), this way you don't screw your PC as you can set back the process or driver out of quarintine if something malfunctions after removel  See also: Link Wim
This file islowing down PC and making some games not working! IWonder
My Computer! These programs that install it without our permission are part of growing invasion of our privacy. Also, with every single installation comes processes that rob us of the speed we gain when we upgrade. I use process control software and System Adminstration disabling to keep My Computer under my control. Sony is at this moment being sued for it's DRM practices. Need I say more? They have all gone to the "Watergate" extreme and I just won't buy any game or program with junk like this in it. monark2
This file did not exist until I installed Lego Star Wars. Now, it loads up at windows startup. I suggest using "regedit" to diable it from starting. But I don't know if it will prevent Lego Star Wars from working. Benjamin
its safe, when u have virtual drives windows load this exe at startup macro55

Yes, I found that the Lego Star Wars was installed on this machine, so that is consistent. I uninstalled this program, but SecuROM is still running. Probably leaves it behind. kds
that's a gammaworld... could be a spy. we should do md5 and speak in terms of the same file momentics
Copy protection that causes problems even with non copied disks and can affect the running and stability of your system. Hard to fully remove. Stevey

To remove go to c:\windows\system32. Type uaservice7 /remove. It will stop the service, and clean up the registry entries. You can delete the file after that. Chris Lively

I got it from downloading Championship Manager 5 Limey G.
Securom, dont know what game installed it
This may work and finally de-install this malware: rune these two commands in the console 1. "net stop useraccess7" and then 2. "sc delete useraccess7" More here:  See also: Link afraid

I got this from installing a Lego Star Wars demo also, it is left behind after uninstallation. Not exactly dangerous, but can appear to be a hostile installation. jahcol
Normal system file installed with some games. Allows access to "protected" game CDs. Gingercat
Well I have battlefront 2 and Lego Star War but I think it was from BF2! You can get this process by installing Lego StarWars too!! Michael
I got this after installing a CrashDay demo from Sony. So im not really sure, Maybe Sony wants to give us spyware for free? Gmod_user
Part of securom copy protection. Not per se dangerous, but can cause instabilities. Additionally, it's installed more often then not without permission/knowledge, its functionality is usually not desired be the computer owner and it's often left over after deinstallation of the game it came with. As such I'd consider it malware. BrainBug
Ein Dienst von Securom7. Kam bei mir mit Act of War: Direct Action oder High Treason. Lässt sich über Systemsteuerung Verwaltung Dienste beenden und deaktivieren. Zumindest Act of War läuft auch ohne das dieser Dienst läuft und daher erachte ich uaservice7.exe als überflüssig. An anderer Stelle steht jedoch das UA User Access bedeutet und das klingt für mich nach etwas, was nach Hause telefonieren will. Wäre zu prüfen, ob da wirklich Traffic entsteht, wenn es läuft. Also erstmal wahrscheinlich schädlich, aber auf jedenfall unwichtig um das Spiel starten zu können - Online mode nicht getestet! Greenhorn
I too installed Lego Star Wars and found this process. Guess that solves my problem. Some Dude...
Was verified as being loaded with Lego Star Wars and left behind after game uninstallation Tarot
Not from any virtual drive software that I have ever seen b4, and I've used almost all of them. Installed with Lego Star Wars, when I uninstalled Starwars it was still there, Bugged out my Comp AFTER I uninstalled Starwars (ate 99% system resources!!!) JesterDoobiesmoker
I got it from Lego Star Wars, uninstalled the game. Still there. Regedited it out. Greg
LOL the file allowes me to play pirated games (securom protected) without cracks :s a bit strange for a program that should be protecting from piracy and not encouraging it :D Hamster
for some reason i dont have uaservice7.exe on my system and i even have lego star wars #1 bob1337
I think it came with Act of War game. and it will not remove if we uninstall the game either. mohadig
Stupid file for securom 7, drains ram and cpu, hard to remove. Snowdog
i found that it came with my mobile driver disk noodles71
I had Lego Starwars and BF2 installed on my computer...Though uninstalled now. I think this thing may be why my computer's been restarting for no reason..... Skysurfer
This program is a security program named SecuRom 7 used by many games. It limits some administrative rights when you attempt to delete its registry keys. It is dificult to uninstall, and the resources it does use, is just wasted on bogus security which was cracked 2 weeks after it was released. SecuRom is retarted
Used by many CD/DVD and downloaded installations as copy protection. It is as likely to prevent the 'user' from being able to use the installation. Numerous discussions on this one which can block all SecuRom containing products, as noted above it is less likely to prevent use of the pirated software as it should. Encourages software theft by denying ligitimate access, Note above, Hamster can run pirated games while I am unable to run shop bought. AngryUser
well i saw it after having installed Daemon tools aman
Securom is a copy right protection created by Sony DAC, it is used by gaming companies. like EA games . In order to get rid of securom, you must go into the regisrty, and remove the key. The uaservice7.exe file can be found in system32 on your comp. Securom has been known to disable some cd burners, and mess around with your antivirus. Some people may not have the uaservice folder if they have a user account on their comp. If you are not able to go into the registry you can reformat your comp to remove securom. However, you will not be able to play your game once securom is removed.  See also: Link Seren
I think mine was installed by gametap so I can play thier games which are downloaded on my computer but require a subscription to play. Dkknight593
Required for some CD-ROM based games released by Sony and other developers. The cleanest way to disable it is to change the services setting (Run services.msc) for this program. Change the setting for 'SecuROM User Access Services (v7)' from automatically starting to the 'manual' start setting (Right click Properties Startup Type Manual). This way your games or other programs will start this service only when you start the program...otherwise it'll stay off and shouldn't restart every time you start Windows. Xeno
It can severely interfere with using your computer, including causing restarts or disabling your CD/DVD drive. It has problems with other legal software like CD/DVD burners.
its anti copyright program to stop pirates. bunny
Secure Rom user access service. - installed with Starcraft 2 (in my case) It can be disabled MSConfig (under services). It can be turned off and on with services Game still works fine Gordon James
It has appeared after installing Magic Disc - Virtual CD Software Breatharian
DANGER: This is DRM software and disables features on your computer in an attempt to prevent the game from being run on other computers. Although Sony claims that its purpose is to prevent piracy, it does not allow removal and restricts usage of your computer, therefore is considered malware and poses a security risk. DBD Member
