Vpntop

If your operating system has started overheating and crashing out of the blue, you need to think if maybe Vpntop has slithered into your operating system. If you have downloaded it yourself, it should not be hard for you to find and remove it immediately. Unfortunately, that is not all that needs to be done. In fact, this infection is not the one causing all of the problems. The only task for this threat is to silently download a different program, and that is why we classify it as a Trojan. This additional program that the Trojan downloads is a miner, and it is used to mine Bitcoins. Bitcoins are a virtual currency, which, at the moment, is at a record high with 1 BTC converting to over 5,000 USD. While Bitcoin miners are not exactly dangerous, they are sucking all of the energy out of your operating system to add transactions to the block chain. This, undoubtedly, makes your machine into a zombie that serves one purpose only, and we are sure that you want to use your computer for your own purposes. That is why our Anti-Spyware-101.com malware research team wants to show you how to delete Vpntop. Read more »
