Heh, I see. I use a 360 wired gamepad on my pc, MS put out their own drivers though.  Maybe the ps3 software...when you installed it, also installed 3rd party software?  Alot of times stuff like that is automatically checked off when you do an install.  Have to watch every step of the install closely.  Good job on finding out what it was though! :tu:

What happens when you uninstall it? You could take a look at the files in it's install directory...there may be additional bundled exes in there, unless they're compiled into the program's actual setup file.  Also, clear our your C:/users/'youruser'/AppData/Local/Temp folder. I've seen malware stick files there before.

Download and run malwarebytes just to ensure everything is good. It is one of the best virus scanners out there.
