What is spchapi.exe? Should I remove it?

spchapi.exe is the file that can cause system issues

spchapi.exe is an executable file whose primary purpose is to start a process or launch the program on the machine. Unfortunately, a parasite can use to spread threats on the machine or launch viruses. Once executed, the possibly malicious file runs a process that is responsible for the parasite's payload. The executable file can be a significant part of a dangerous threat, but it can also work on its own. It can be installed by the trojan, keylogger, or different threats. Stay away from the file.

Possible issues Speed issues, internet issues, crashes, and freezing of the PC
Removal You should use an antivirus tool and check if the piece is malicious before deleting it fully

spchapi.exe is one of the many executable files that can be found on the system running in the background. Executables are legitimate file processes developed by Microsoft Corporation generally. But some of them can be misused by malicious actors. You can locate these safe files in C:\Program Files, so if you notice the piece in a different file – be concerned.

The virus can be using the DLL or EXE file to hide malicious processes. If it is created by malware authors, it can still be named after the spchapi.exe file to mask the purpose. If so happens you can notice symptoms:

  • Unstable internet connection
  • Browser redirects to unwanted websites
  • Poor PC performance
  • System slows downs.

You are highly advised to scan the system before you choose to delete executable spchapi.exe and terminate all the processes it started. It can be a file installed by harmless legitimate software and therefore may not pose any threat to your privacy and the system. Run an anti-malware tool to make sure it is possible to remove the piece.
