What is Attunel.exe?
  

Does anyone has any idea about what is Attunel.exe? I get Attunel.exe errors in my system frequently and when I check the Task Manager, I find many Attunel.exe processes running in it. As i do not have much knowledge about the system components, I do not know whether it is a genuine process or not. Are there any methods that I can use to remove these errors? My system also becomes slow as soon as I get the Attunel.exe error. Please help me with this situation as I am getting very irritated due to these errors.

Re: What is Attunel.exe?

Attunel.exe is a file that is seen to create undesirable effects when it runs on the system. It has been identified to have harmful effects on the system even it seems as genuine process going on within the system. Attunel.exe generally contains programs that are dangerous as well as misleading. I suggest you to scan the whole system with any well updated antivirus and eradicate all the infections that are detected in the scan.

Use a spyware removal tool like Spyware Doctor and you can get rid of Attunel.exe easily from the computer. Since, such processes seem to be genuine from outside, even antiviruses fail to detect them. But, such anti-malwares remain in the background and check for the malicious activities that are going on within the system. Thus, it successfully removes Attunel.exe and other such malicious process and makes the system free of its ill effects.
