- Tip: If you think you have singled out the unwanted process but are not sure, it’s always a good idea to search for information about it on the Internet – this should give you a general idea if the process is a legitimate one from a regular program or from your OS or if it is indeed likely linked to the adware.

- Go back to the folder where the files of that process are located and delete all of the files that you are allowed to delete. If all files get deleted normally, exit the folder and delete that folder too.

What’s so hazardous about the Trojans like Nsudo?
No other type of online threat is as versatile as the Trojan Horses. We still can give you an idea of what such malware might be capable of. For instance, the Trojans can often be used to exploit the resources of your system for different purposes, and to turn your machine into a bot. In fact, some 15% of the world’s computers are used as bots. For instance, your PC could be used to distribute spam to other computers, or to spread malware, and mine cyrptocurrencies for the hackers who control it.
Very frequently, the Trojan can act as a backdoor for different viruses, and thus play a part in introducing other infections such as Ransomware, or Spyware into your system.
Is Nsudo dangerous?
Another way to exploit such malware is for theft of digital information. The Trojan can accomplish this in many ways, including copying sensitive files straight from the system.
A piece of malware such as Nsudo, Altruistic or MFResident.exe may also possibly be used to spy on you. For example, the keylogging is a common way for the Trojan to keep track of what you type on your keyboard. This way, it can gain access to sensitive information, such as login details, and passwords, with the help of which the crooks can perform different crimes. Alternatively, the criminals could use the infection to hack into your own camera or mic, and look at you, and listen to your conversations.
