CloudNet (cloudnet.exe) pop-up windows have been noticed to appear in all widely used browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. It is quite likely that other browsers, especially those based on the Chromium open source project, may become infected as well. The goal of CloudNet pop-ups is to make your computer infected even more dramatically.

CloudNet

When you start your browser, you will soon face CloudNet pop-ups that will keep then redirecting your system to all kinds of malicious domain names in the world wide web. As a result of such redirections the system may become infected even more dramatically.

You can find this virus in the following folders:
%programfiles%\Default Company Name\AlphaGo
%programfiles%\AlphaGo

Virus add this to your registry:
%appdata%\EpicNet Inc.\CloudNet
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run!cloudnet

While your browser spews out the multitude of CloudNet pop-ups, there will be high CPU usage caused by adware in your computer. As a result, your system may start freezing dramatically and the computer might even crash. In the light of the above-said information we strongly advise that you get rid of CloudNet pop-ups as soon as possible by thoroughly scanning the system with a genuine malware removal tool as explained clearly in the remainder of the tutorial below.
