XLog.exe – initially an application file, although might also indicate a keylogger or other infection
XLog.exe is an executable file that might be found running in the background after opening the Task Manager, or it could be located in someplace on your Windows PC. EXE files might hold various code and information inside – they provide instructions on how to perform certain actions once executed.
In most cases, the file belongs to a legitimate Windows application known as Diva – it's a music development and sound synthesis application. Additionally, it might be a component of Maintenance Tools by Eicon Technology. However, if you have never installed such apps on your PC, there is a change that the file is related to malware – a keylogger, to be precise.

|Removal||Perform a full system scan with antivirus software; if the file is legitimate, uninstall the related application via the Control Panel|
|System fix||After malware elimination, we recommend using a repair toolkit ReimageIntego to ensure no crashes or other issues occur|
There are hundreds of thousands of files on a Windows computer – some of them are a part of the system, while others are implemented by third-party software. In most cases, such files are necessary for one reason or another (for example, to provide automatics updates or fulfill some functions of the program).
If you are a regular PC user, you should not worry too much about files and processes that are running in the background – unless there are some visible symptoms of something being wrong. For example, your computer might fail to start certain applications, crash, or deliver Blue Screen of Death errors. While these symptoms might be a result of software conflict or similar issues, there might be a chance that malware is indeed involved.
If you see that XLog.exe is running in the background and is using too much CPU, memory, or another resource, it also should be a cause for concern. The best way to find out whether you are infected with a virus or another computer parasite is to perform a full system scan with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or another reputable antivirus.
If malware was found, you should also take care about its aftermath – clean web browsers, change all your passwords (this is especially important if malware was related to a keylogger or spyware) and, if system crashes or errors persist, fix virus damage with ReimageIntego.
