I wrote this article to help you remove Nheqminer.exe Zcash CPU Miner. This Nheqminer.exe Zcash CPU Miner removal guide works for all Windows versions.

Nheqminer.exe Zcash CPU Miner is a member of the Trojan horse family. To be more precise, this Trojan is coin miner. Its developers use it to mine digital currency like Bitcoin, Dashcoin, Monero, DarkNetCoin, etc. without your permission. The pest uses your computer recourse for the coin mining process and it is very dangerous. Just like any other Trojan, this one must be uninstalled immediately. There is a reason why Trojans are so feared. Hackers use them to do their dirty work.

A Trojan horse is the definition of a PC virus. Do not underestimate this parasite. It will ruin your machine. Delete it the first chance you get. Yes, it is true that Trojans enter and operate in the shadows and sometimes it may be quite a while before you realize there is a Trojan in your system. Yet, there are some signs which can give you a hint. The first and most common one is the general slowness of your machine`s performance. If you notice that your computer is underperforming and lagging, scan it. You may be dealing with a dangerous cyber infection. Needless to say, if this is the case, do your best to remove the intruder ASAP. The longer it stays, the worse your situation gets. Don’t procrastinate. Delays lead to regrets.

As we said, Nheqminer.exe Zcash CPU Miner uses your PC`s resources to dig digital currency. Of course, you are not informed. It is all happing behind your back and you only suffer the consequences. Nheqminer.exe Zcash CPU Miner uses more than 70% of your CPU`s and graphics card`s power. As a result, your machine doesn’t perform normally. It lags all the time. It crashes. It freezes and reboots. Your programs fail to work properly if at all. Your online activities are also disturbed. Your PC, in general, doesn’t perform like it used to. The coin mining process also needs a lot of electrical power. Do not be surprised if at the end of the month your electricity bill is twice or trice as high. That’s why hackers don’t use their own devices to run dig coins. This “business” is only profitable if you don’t use your own machine. And they are using yours.

In addition, all this needed electrical power produces a lot of heat. Your PC is forced to run at very high temperature for a long time. As you probably figure, this shortens its life significantly. If you don’t have a powerful enough cooling system, your computer may also crash a lot. We do not think you would need any more convincing that Nheqminer.exe Zcash CPU Miner must be uninstalled as soon as possible. Be sure that it will not stop using your resources and making you pay for them unless you stop it yourself. Do that. Use our guide below to help you. If you are not confident enough in your PC skills, get a good antimalware program to get the job done for you.

How did Nheqminer.exe Zcash CPU Miner enter your machine? Trojans are very sneaky and deceptive. They use tricks to get on board and they also have options to choose from. For instance, a Trojan can hitch a ride with spam email messages which have been disguised to look like legitimate once. Or, they can travel bundled with other programs. They can also hide behind corrupted ad and link or pose as a program or software update. The methods are many but they all need one more thing to succeed – your carelessness. If you don’t pay attention to what you click on and what you agree to, you are making hackers` job much easier. Do not do that. Be vigilant and cautious instead. Protect your machine at all costs.
