Although it's a legitimate file of the Tawainese corporation, cybercriminals are known for camouflaging their vile creations as gui.exe. A couple of notable infections that used this file are Hobbit.416 and Noknok. That's why if you ever see in the Task Manager that gui.exe is using too many resources or any other suspicious activity, you have to scan the file with a reliable anti-malware tool to make sure it's not an imposter.
