I wrote this article to help you remove Idlemonitor.exe. This Idlemonitor.exe removal guide works for all Windows versions.
Idlemonitor.exe is a malicious process. If you find it running in your Task Manager, brace yourself. You are in for a bad time. Idlemonitor.exe is one particular type of Trojan. It is a coin miner. The hackers use it to dig digital currency. This means that it forces your machine to perform accounting services for a coin platform. In exchange, your PC gets rewarded with fractions of the coin. However, you are not the one who gets the coins. They go straight to the digital wallet of cybercriminals. They use you to make money at your expense. Do not let them do that.
Trojans are enough dangerous as they are. Coin miner Trojans are even more hazardous. Do not ignore the Idlemonitor.exe`s presence. Once you spot it, start looking for a way out. Delete the pest immediately. If you don’t, your predicament will keep on worsening with every single day. Do not procrastinate! Time is not your friend in this situation.
As we said, the Idlemonitor.exe Trojan is using your machine to carry on its tasks. It uses your CPU at very high temperatures non-stop. It doesn’t take a break. This, of course, shortens your PC`s life significantly. But there is more. The coin digging process requires a lot of electrical power as well. Do not be surprised if at the end of the month your electricity bill is twice or thrice as high. The Trojan is responsible for that. You are the one who pays the price. That’s why digging coins is only profitable if you don’t use your own computer. The hackers are using yours.
Also, this power you pay for turns into heat. Idlemonitor.exe doesn’t hesitate to use your machine at high temperatures. If you don’t have a powerful cooling system, your computer will overheat. This, in turn, leads to irrevocable hardware damage. Long story short, you can lose your machine for good. But even without this coin mining feature, this pest is very destructive.
After all, this is a Trojan we are talking about. Trojans are dreaded for a reason and Idlemonitor.exe is not an exception. It makes a complete mess of your PC. It alters your system registry behind your back. It adds and/or removes entries, changes or fully damages important system files, etc. As a result, your programs may not work properly if at all.
In addition, the pest can also grant its developers remove access to your computer. If this happens, the cybercriminals can turn on your web camera and spy on you in real time. They can also see what you are typing and what is on your screen. They can steal your personal details this way. Don’t let that scenario unfold. Use our removal guide below to remove Idlemonitor.exe immediately. The longer it stays, the worse your situation gets. Act now!
Once you get rid of the infection, make sure to protect yourself better in the future. Do you know how the Trojan got in this time? Crooks use techniques as they are aware you would never give such a parasite your permission to enter. One of the most popular and effective methods for Trojans distribution is spam emails messages. Hackers often attach a pest to a seemingly legitimate email and you do the rest by blindly opening everything that lands in your mail inbox. Don’t do that.
Delete any message from an unknown sender even if it looks safe and even helpful. Such emails often deliver infections and if you are not distracted you would be able to prevent an intruder from entering. Also, stay away from suspicious pages/sites/torrents/ads and be extra careful when installing freeware/shareware bundles. What all pests need the most is your negligence. Don’t provide it.
