This post will explain SbPFSvc.exe, discuss any potential issues it may cause, and provide several ways to get rid of it from your computer.

Understanding SbPFSvc

SbPFSvc is an executable file, meaning it can run independently without relying on any other program. It is possible that SbPFSvc is harming your Windows operating system behind your back. It is a type of Trojan that is hard to get rid of due to its relation with trusted applications.

Usually, SbPFSvc.exe can be found in the “C:\Program Files” subfolder. The sizes of the files can differ; on Windows 10/8/7/XP, the known sizes range from 1,365,288 bytes to 1,361,192 bytes. This executable is verified by a reliable organization and is not a Windows system file thanks to its Verisign signature. It has been reported to cause relatively few issues on some systems, even though it is certified.

  • After you open the Computer Explorer tab, go to C drive (assuming that’s where you install Windows files). If your Windows files are stored in other drives then feel free to go to that specific drive.
  • Now go to “program files > Sunbelt Software > Personal Firewall”.
  • Inside the Personal Firewall folder, search for “SbPFSvc.exe” and delete it.
  • Deleting the file from Explorer is not the final step as it does not completely remove SbPDSvc from your computer. The .exe file may be is still in the bin. So it is technically still present in your computer. Go to the recycle bin afterward and clear all files from the bin. You can do that by right-clicking on “Recycle Bin” and selecting “Empty Recycle Bin”.

Method 2: Remove Sunbelt Personal Firewall

  • To finish the uninstallation process, click the “Uninstall” button and confirm as per what Windows asks.

  • To make the changes take effect, restart your computer after uninstalling.

Note: More actions might be required if SbPFSvc.exe continues to function even after removal. If that is the case then using a reliable premium software uninstaller may be a better option. Sometimes, windows native uninstallers are not effective in removing all the residual files when you uninstall any program. So get robust software that can uninstall programs to its core.

Method 4: Use antivirus software to check for viruses
First, you have to check the health of the system. Use a trustworthy antivirus program to perform a thorough system scan and make sure that no SbPFSvc.exe leftovers are present on your computer.

Use Windows Security or Advanced Antivirus to keep your Windows experience safe. Scan your computer on a regular basis with either the integrated Windows Security tool or a reliable third-party antivirus program.
