I downloaded a program which had many viruses on it, and one of them is this nvidia.exe file. My computer doesn't have anything related to nvidia because i have an AMD Ryzen 5 1600 processor and an AMD RX 480 graphics card. I did some research on this trojan, and it looks to be that it is a bitcoin mining trojan, which uses my cpu and gpu power for somebody elses purpose. I tried going into safe mode and removing the trojan, but it keeps coming back. I don't want to wipe windows clean because i have a lot of games, programs, and files that would take forever to re-download

I have the same problem. I managed to remove this nvidia.exe multiple times now. I already tried using RogueKiller. It detected it during scanning, I removed it, the software says it's killed, but it keeps coming back every time I turn on my PC while being connected to the internet. It seems like my PC downloads it in the background without my permission. In my case, I keep getting BSOD if I boot the PC without internet connection, which makes it worse. I'm still not sure if it's the virus that did this, but I never got a BSOD before. Not until I got nvidia.exe.

I really hope someone knows the solution to this.

Are you still dealing with this situation? If so, how are you coping with it, and what did you do

I am. I'm still getting BSOD loop at boot if I don't connect to the internet. The nvidia bastard is still there. So, the only thing I could think of doing was to boot with internet connection, copy my important files into drive D or E and re-install the OS. I haven't done it yet, though. The place where I'm staying at right now isn't the best for PC services. I don't have the Windows install disc.

One thing, do you get BSOD too?
