Worried due to computer infected with the virus Taskeng.exe? Relax and read below to cure your computer.
In this modern world, security and safety not only means of your physical existence but also that of your virtual one. When almost all our lives, everything in the world exists online, then security threats must too, right? These threats exist in various forms and types; from viruses and malware to spyware, you can be a victim of anything from anyone in the world. A hacker in one corner of the world can not only access your most private files but also control your computer to do whatever they want.
One such method of taking control of your computer is through a Trojan horse virus. As the name suggests, it does what the original Trojan horse did; infiltrate a secure place without anyone knowing. By doing so, a Trojan horse virus can harm your computer system, spy on your activities, distribute more malware, and take over control of your whole computer.
One of the worst Trojan horse viruses is the Taskeng.exe. This little, seemingly innocent virus pretends to be the normal windows process Taskeng.exe, which predetermines when some tasks are to be performed.

Next, press the Start Key and R together, and copy and paste “notepad %windir%/system32/Drivers/etc/hosts” in the empty field. Then, click OK and look for suspicious IPs beneath “Localhost”. The next step is to type “Regedit” in the search field of Windows and pressing Enter. Then, press CTRL + F together and type in “Taskeng.exe”. Delete all entries with this name to get rid of this virus.
