What is brtsvc.exe? Should I remove it?

Brtsvc.exe – a malicious file which is related to a crypto miner

Brtsvc.exe appears to be a malicious file which is not a necessary component for your computer system. Actually, this process has been considered as a Trojan horse or even a crypto miner. Brtsvc.exe virus is known for its ability to stealthily infiltrate the system and mine cryptocurrency[1] by overusing the computer's resources. Your central processing unit or graphics card might reach even up to 100% of power which alerts about the serious infection. Note that brtsvc.exe should be removed instantly as it can bring even more damaging consequences, for example, cleaning the way for other serious computer infections.

Name brtsvc.exe
Type Malicious file
Purpose To secretly mine cryptocurrency on the infected PC
Symptoms CPU and GPU overuse, software slowness
Possible danger Disables the antivirus which makes the computer vulnerable to malware
Distribution Spam messages, dangerous web pages
Deletion Install FortectIntego to detect all damaged system components

CoinMiner.BRTSVC.EXE appears in the system after secret installation. If you are infected with this malicious program, there is a big possibility that it came from a misleading email message. Note that, once installed, brtsvc.exe will slow down your entire computer, including every program you have on it, to mine cryptocurrency and perform its illegitimate activities.

Cybersecurity researchers have discovered that brtsvc.exe has the ability to disable antivirus software[2]. This makes the virus even more hard to detect. Nevertheless, the computer system becomes extremely vulnerable to various infections as it does not have any active automatical protection. If you ever spot the brtsvc.exe file in the system, do not hesitate and get rid of this malicious process instantly!

You can remove brtsvc.exe virus with the help of strong and reliable tools, just make sure you choose one which cannot be blocked by the malicious program. Moreover, we suggest downloading programs such as FortectIntego or SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner as they might be very helpful for detecting all damaged programs and components. This way you will notice which system parts need fixing.

The brtsvc.exe removal can be performed only automatically. This process is too complicated to be taken care on your own and you should leave the job for reputable software. If you leave this trojan in your computer system, do not be surprised if someday your computer will stop working at all as the CPU might have overheated or malware might have entered the PC and done unrepairable damage to it.

Malicious files can be sent by email

According to technology experts[3], virus-related content can come clipped to email messages. Crooks send such emails to numerous random users some of which manage to open the clipped attachments and get their computer system infected. If you have received a questionable-looking email message and were not expecting anything very important at the moment, do not risk opening the message and better get rid of it permanently.

Moreover, viruses can spread through potentially dangerous websites. You can get redirected to one if you have a browser hijacker or another potentially unwanted application installed on your computer. So, make sure that your PC is clean from these PUPs[4]. You can check the entire system by purchasing a reliable anti-malware tool and performing a scan with it. Nevertheless, this software will keep your computer protected 24/7.

Terminate brtsvc.exe

Spotting this malicious file in your system does not signal about anything good. You should remove brtsvc.exe virus before it forces your computer to crash. Do not wait until your CPU stops working or other malware appears and damages the system permanently. Get reliable anti-malware tools and perform the elimination. Be patient as the process might take a while but it is definitely worth the cost.

Moreover, after you take care of the brtsvc.exe removal, refresh the entire system. Ensure that no virus-related components are left. Also, it is very important that you do not forget to stay safe online in the future. If you pay attention to your computer's safety and try to increase it, the chances to get infected with trojans or other malware will decrease slightly.
