Aveo-Attune is an application that displays so-called intelligram messages. These messages inform about common computer problems, services and new products, which supposedly interest the user.
Aveo-Attune uses the Internet connection without user permission in order to update itself and the intelligram messages. It runs in the background.
In addition, Aveo-Attune installs a file called HXDL.EXE, which remains resident even if the application is uninstalled.
Aveo-Attune is easy to recognize, as it displays an icon in the Taskbar, next to the system clock.
