Where does Novo Optimizer Gpu Miner come from?

Our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say that this Trojan is likely to spread along with potentially unwanted programs or malware infections packed together in a freeware bundle. It is possible that you land on a shady torrent or shareware page after searching the web for free software. Many inexperienced users make this mistake, i.e., they tend to click on links on search results pages that lead to unfamiliar fake or malicious file-sharing websites. When you download a free file, you should always make sure that you are aware of what exactly you will install. These bundles may try to hide from you their full content and install everything in it by default. Nevertheless, it is also possible that you click on corrupt third-party ads or links and this is how you drop such a bundle. You may see, for example, a pop-up ad that tells you that you need to install a certain plugin or software update to be able to see content on a webpage. Clicking the Install or OK button in this case may drop infections onto your machine instead of a working and legitimate program. You should stay away from suspicious websites that seem to host an annoying number of flashy ads. However, right now you need to scan your system with an online malware scanner you can trust after you delete Novo Optimizer Gpu Miner from your PC.

How does Novo Optimizer Gpu Miner work?

This Trojan operates behind your back so that you would not even realize that it is hiding on your system. Hence the name Trojan. Since this malicious program creates scheduled tasks, it can start up automatically with your Windows operating system. There are a few signs though that could indicate that this Trojan is working in the background. For example, if you check your Task Manager and see processes named novoone.exe, novoopt.exe, novoping.exe, npsvc.exe, or windriver.exe, it is pretty sure that this Trojan is up and running on your computer. Another clear sign is that you experience lower system performance. Mainly, it is your GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), i.e., your video card that is mostly drained of processing power, since this infection uses it to do calculations; in other words, mining digital currency pools. While the mining itself is not illegal, the way this Trojan steals your GPU power and how it sneaks onto your system in the first place are definitely traits that are considered malicious. Since the mining this Trojan does may take long, it may considerably exploit your video card, keeping it running at its high, which may also result in frying your card. Due to the possibility that this infection can actually cause hardware damage and its operations seriously lower your whole system performance, which becomes very annoying and distracting as even your active window changes will be dragging, we believe that there is only one way out of this: You need to remove Novo Optimizer Gpu Miner immediately.
