How to remove VNLGP Miner Trojan (Vnlgp.exe CPU Miner)

VNLGP Miner is a Trojan Horse that uses the infected computer’s resources to mine digital currency (Monero, Dashcoin, DarkNetCoin, and others) without user permission.
The VNLGP Miner is commonly bundled with other free programs that you download off of the Internet. Unfortunately, some free downloads do not adequately disclose that other software will also be installed and you may find that you have installed VNLGP Miner without your knowledge.
Once the VNLGP Miner Trojan is installed, Vnlgp.exe will use more than 70% of your CPU’s power and graphics cards power. What this means, is that when the miners are running you will find that your computer is running slower and games are stuttering or freezing because the VNLGP Miner Trojan is using your computer’s resources to generate revenue for themselves. This will cause your CPU to run at very hot temperatures for extended periods of time, which could shorten the life of the CPU.
When infected with this adware program, other common symptoms include:
  • Very high CPU and graphics cards usage
  • Windows minimize and maximize slowly, and programs run slower.
  • Programs don’t launch as quickly.
  • General slowness when using the PC.
You should always pay attention when installing software because often, a software installer includes optional installs. Be very careful what you agree to install.
Always opt for the custom installation and deselect anything that is not familiar, especially optional software that you never wanted to download and install in the first place. It goes without saying that you should not install software that you don’t trust.

Your old Firefox profile will be placed on your desktop in a folder named “Old Firefox Data“. If the reset didn’t fix your problem you can restore some of the information not saved by copying files to the new profile that was created. If you don’t need this folder any longer, you should delete it as it contains sensitive information.
