So i had this thing called netctrl.exe i googled it because my malware fighter asked if i want to block it or allow it. I was confused because it assent in my startup items and my antivirus tells me about it when ever i startup my pc. So when i searched up netctl.exe some people say its a virus and i should remove it but they dont say what is does so i think there trolls. 



If you now what it is and what it does it is please tell me and if its a virus how do you remove it because again i couldn't and my antivirus didnt find it to be a virus.
