Wow I have never heard of something like that before. Just be glad it was a mere bitcoin miner and not something more malicious.

That is true, but just thinking that there is a very small program that can crank my machine harder than OCCT worries me. I am actually just now learning about these bitcoin miners, and I can most definitely see them getting more subtle, and far more malicious.

Glad you got to the bottom of it. It is a virus I wish I created to be honest. So many people affected, the developer must be coining it in (pun intended) biggrin.gif

Sorry bad joke and again, well done on getting to the bottom of it (bottom of the mine?)

Enough already biggrin.gif
