Windows 10 Creators - cURL.exe - my PC compromised? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I was using my destkop on routine work when a popup window opened "The cURL executable has stopped working". After checking on the Internet, seems like this cURL executable is used by ReadCube from Google. It says "Curl.exe is able to monitor applications. Therefore the technical security rating is 68% dangerous, however you should also read the user reviews."

    I have a paid and among the best antivirus installed. I ran MacAfeee stinger, it found nothing.

    I never installed ReadCube in my PC. I could not find it in the Apps section and there is no such folder in the C:/Programs and (86) programs. On searching for cURL.exe inside Windows, it returned no results. Now, this seems suspect to me. I wonder if anybody had the same issue and how to find and emove cURL.exe from my Windows 10 Creators. 

    Any advice is welcome.
