Greetings, I am Todd, and I am actually new to the forums, and might just stay around a bit since my lappy's not doing so well
In recent events, I've come across to this folder Etash, of which had been in my lappy for years without my knowledge, until I roam about in the directories. I've come across through the folder, and it held over 37GB in its course of a year. Now, I've tried searching about this in the past, but came out short. I deleted the excess files, but one file, that one file that can't be removed due to some reason.
It was rather careless of me, I know, and until I knew that the folder was a cesspool (Well, according to some sources) for mining coins in my device, I knew that the thing or guy behind it won't get any cent from my device soon, as soon as I could confirm if
ctfhost.exe is a trojan, and how could it be removed before I do something stupid, and should if I should leave it be? Like I get that it's a part (Maybe??) of the operating system but, with the date being created not at the year of which I got this device (With the ctf being at 2015, but I got this lappy at 2013) , it makes me wonder about it being the main source of this trouble.
I would wish for a quick response about this. I feel a bit anxious about this.
