    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.

    Hi there .. Have a look in Program and Features you must have Installed some thing recently ? .. Then do a Scan with AdwCleaner and also Junkware Removal Tool .. They both can be found in the Link below ..

    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?

    I am sure you will not like this Option Uninstall the Program .. I say this because i do not see any other way to resolve the issue ...

    Does a simple windows search work? Or do i have to go into each folder specifically?
