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 http://www.file.net/process/curl.exe.html 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.
