Main.exe keeps using a large amount of uploads

When looking at whats using network resources, main.exe is hogging all the available uploads. I cant find much on google. Could anyone help me to find out why and what its really doing? I can keep killing the process but it'll come back every reboot.

AdwCleaner Download

Finally Download Malwarebytes and Scan your System ...

Hello everyone!

Main.exe has returned and using almost all the internets/modem transfer rate. Ive done a search for main.exe under C: and all that comes up is main.exe from razer(the game booster - i use to save games onto dropbox).

Anything else that i should try to do?
