Wd cloud.exe

The Wd Cloud.exe virus is a malicious computer virus classified as a Trojan horse, capable of spying on users, stealing data, and infecting systems with ransomware, among other threats. The Wd Cloud.exe virus is highly stealthy, employing various disguises to infiltrate victims’ computers without raising suspicion.

The probability of Wd Cloud.exe being detected by the security tool is diminished.
The Wd Cloud.exe malware is exceptionally elusive, utilizing different camouflage techniques to infiltrate the computer systems

Determining whether Wd Cloud.exe has infected your computer is a challenging task. Even if you have a reliable antivirus system that actively monitors potential malware infections, this doesn’t guarantee that the Trojan will be detected. Some Trojans, like Wd Cloud.exe, TaskbarifyPinaview and Dispout can download a rootkit onto the infected computer, which can block the antivirus software and even prevent the installation of new security tools.

If you suspect you might be a victim of this dangerous malware, it’s essential to take precautions to confirm the virus’s presence and remove it as soon as possible to prevent damage to your system, data, or virtual privacy. Although Trojan horse threats are among the most severe infections you can encounter, quick action and staying calm increase your chances of successfully protecting your computer from the malware’s effects.

The Wd cloud.exe virus

The Wd Cloud.exe virus may go undetected by antivirus programs. This is because newer threats, like this one, have yet to be added to the databases of various antivirus programs. If a particular virus isn’t in your antivirus program’s malware database, the likelihood of detection is significantly reduced. Some antivirus programs offer behavioral monitoring, a security feature that identifies unknown malware by observing its behavior and detecting patterns typical of malicious programs. However, the effectiveness of this feature can vary, so you shouldn’t rely solely on it to protect you from new malware like the Wd Cloud.exe virus.


Despite the stealthy nature of threats like WdCloud.exe, which often disguise themselves as system processes and files that don’t arouse suspicion, it’s still possible to detect a Trojan horse infection by observing potential symptoms. Depending on the specific goal of the threat, these symptoms can vary. For example, if WdCloud.exe is used to deliver ransomware to your computer, you will likely lose access to your data due to encryption. Alternatively, if the Trojan attempts to mine cryptocurrency using your computer’s RAM and CPU, you can expect significant slowdowns, crashes, and freezes due to excessive resource use.

Data corruption, intrusive ads appearing in your browser, and various changes in your system’s settings can also indicate a Trojan horse infection. If you notice any of these symptoms, we recommend immediately starting the removal process for WdCloud.exe to prevent severe damage to your system.

Please follow all the steps below in order to remove Wd Cloud.exe!

How to remove Wd Cloud.exe

  1. First, click the Start Menu on your Windows PC.
  2. Type Programs and Settings in the Start Menu, click the first item, and find Wd Cloud.exe in the programs list that would show up.
  3. Select Wd Cloud.exe from the list and click on Uninstall.
  4. Follow the steps in the removal wizard.

What we suggest you do first is, check the list of programs that are presently installed on the infected device and uninstall any rogue software that you find there:

  • From the Start Menu, navigate to Control Panel ->>> Programs and Features ->>> Uninstall a Program.
  • Next, carefully search for unfamiliar programs or programs that have been installed recently and could be related to Wd Cloud.exe.
  • If you find any of the programs suspicious then uninstall them if they turn out to be linked to Wd Cloud.exe.
  • If a notification appears on your screen when you try to uninstall a specific questionable program prompting you to just alter it or repair it, make sure you choose NO and complete the steps from the removal wizard.

Remove Wd Cloud.exe from Chrome

  1. Click on the three dots in the right upper corner
  2. Go to more tools
  3. Now select extensions
  4. Remove the Wd Cloud.exe extension
  • Once you open Chrome, click on the three-dots icon to open the browser’s menu, go to More Tools/ More Options, and then to Extensions.
  • Again, find the items on that page that could be linked to Wd Cloud.exe and/or that might be causing problems in the browser and delete them.
  • Afterwards, go to this folder: Computer > C: > Users > *Your User Account* > App Data > Local > Google > Chrome > User Data. In there, you will find a folder named Default – you should change its name to Backup Default and restart the PC.
  • Note that the App Data folder is normally hidden so you’d have to first make the hidden files and folders on your PC visible before you can access it.

How to get rid of Wd Cloud.exe on FF/Edge/etc.

  1. Open the browser and select the menu icon.
  2. From the menu, click on the Add-ons button.
  3. Look for the Wd Cloud.exe extension
  4. Get rid of Wd Cloud.exe by removing it from extensions

If using Firefox:

  • Open Firefox
  • Select the three parallel lines menu and go to Add-ons.
  • Find the unwanted add-on and delete it from the browser – if there is more than one unwanted extension, remove all of them.
  • Go to the browser menu again, select Options, and then click on Home from the sidebar to the left.
  • Check the current addresses for the browser’s homepage and new-tab page and change them if they are currently set to address(es) you don’t know or trust.

If using MS Edge/IE:

  • Start Edge
  • Select the browser menu and go to Extensions.
  • Find and uninstall any Edge extensions that look undesirable and unwanted.
  • Select Settings from the browser menu and click on Appearance.
  • Check the new-tab page address of the browser and if it has been modified by “Wd Cloud.exe” or another unwanted app, change it to an address that you’d want to be the browser’s new-tab page.

How to Delete Wd Cloud.exe

  1. Open task manager
  2. Look for the Wd Cloud.exe process
  3. Select it and click on End task
  4. Open the file location to delete Wd Cloud.exe
  • Access the Task Manager by pressing together the Ctrl + Alt + Del keys and then selecting Task Manager.
  • Open Processes and there try to find a process with the name of the unwanted software. If you find it, select it with the right button of the mouse and click on the Open File Location option.
  • If you don’t see a “Wd Cloud.exe” process in the Task Manager, look for another suspicious process with an unusual name. It is likely that the unwanted process would be using lots of RAM and CPU so pay attention to the number of resources each process is using.
  • 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.
  • If you find another suspicious process, open its File Location too.
  • Once in the File Location folder for the suspicious process, start testing all of the files that are stored there by dragging them to our free online scanner available below.
  • Each file will be scanned with up to 64 antivirus programs to ensure maximum accuracy

If all files get deleted normally, exit the folder and delete that folder too.

    How to Uninstall Wd Cloud.exe

    1. Click on the home button
    2. Search for Startup Apps
    3. Look for Wd Cloud.exe in there
    4. Uninstall Wd Cloud.exe from Startup Apps by turning it off
    • Now you need to carefully search for and uninstall any Wd Cloud.exe-related entries from the Registry. The easiest way to do this is to open the Registry Editor app (type Regedit in the windows search field and press Enter) and then open a Find dialog (CTRL+F key combination) where you have to type the name of the threat. 
    • Perform a search by clicking on the Find Next button and delete any detected results. Do this as many times as needed until no more results are found. 
    • After that, to ensure that there are no remaining entries lined to Wd Cloud.exe in the Registry, go manually to the following directories and delete them:
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Random Directory. 
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run/Random
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main/Random

    Is Wd Cloud.exe dangerous?

    Additionally, even if Wd Cloud.exe doesn’t bring a Rootkit to your computer, this still doesn’t guarantee that your antivirus would be able to spot the Trojan. This is because newer threats like Wd Cloud.exe are yet to be added to the databases of the different antiviruses. If a given virus is not in the malware database of your antivirus program, the chances of this virus getting detected by the security tool are lowered. Some antiviruses offer behavioral-monitoring – a security feature that recognizes unknown malware by monitoring its behavior and detecting behavioral patterns typical for malicious programs. However, the effectiveness of these features could vary so you can’t solely rely on them to keep you safe from new malware such as Wd Cloud.exe.

    Is there a way to manually detect  Trojan?

    Although threats like Wd Cloud.exe tend to be very stealthy and are oftentimes able to disguise themselves as system processes and files that don’t raise the users’ suspicion, there are still instances when you might be able to spot a Trojan that is in your system by noticing some of the potential symptoms that the virus might trigger. Depending on the specific goal of the threat, those symptoms are likely to vary. For instance, if Wd Cloud.exe is used to deliver a Ransomware into your computer, you will probably lose access to your data because the Ransomware would encrypt it. On the other hand, if the Trojan  tries to mine cryptocurrency using your PC’s RAM and CPU, then severe slow-downs and occasional crashes and freezes of the system are to be expected because the excessive resource use would make the whole computer nearly unusable. In addition, data corruption, obscene ads showing-up in your browser, and different changes in the system’s settings can also be possible symptoms of a Trojan Horse infection. If you notice any of those, we suggest you immediately begin the process of completing our removal guide for Wd Cloud.exe so as to avoid any serious damage to your system.
