The messages are usually highly interrupting and will stop the user from successfully completing any task that they are planning to do. Some of the common messages faced during analysis include x file is not loading, reinstalling select application may fix the error and the target file has caused an error.

It may also lead to Windows/System32 folder if it infects the registry and shows error saying cannot find the specified file. The NscpProf.exe issue is found around the globe and has been affecting hundreds of users regularly in different continents. It hinders when users try to open a web page, access a program or sometimes even slows down mouse actions stopping you from operating the program.

NscpProf.exe can even lead to blue screen of death, slow performance, system crash and rundll32.exe messages at inappropriate times. As with other viruses, repairing the windows registry is the most feasible method and it is good to deploy strategies earlier before it makes the PC fully inaccessible.

How to remove NscpProf.exe malware from system using Comodo Cleaning Essentials?

You can either choose to remove NscpProf.exe and other malwares using Comodo Antivirus, or Comodo Cleaning Essentials (CCE) – both of which are absolutely free to download! CCE is a set of computer security tools designed to help you identify and remove malwares and unsafe processes from an infected computer.

To remove malwares using CCE, take the following steps:

1. Check the system requirements and download the feature-rich CCE suite for free.

2. After installation, choose the type of scan you want to perform. CCE offers 3 scan options to get rid of malwares from a PC:

  • Smart Scan: Does a scan on critical areas of your system.
  • Full Scan: Does a complete scan of your system.
  • Custom Scan: Does a scan only on selected items.

The process to initiate the above mentioned scans are self-explanatory and thus, easy-to-use. 
Additionally, it's recommended that you approve of any updates that the CCE will prompt you about to ensure it does a better job of identifying all the latest threats.

3. Click 'Next' to view the results.
Regardless of the type of scan you choose, the results will sometimes show false positive (flagging files that are actually safe), which has to be ignored. Only select the files you want to get rid of.

4. Click 'Apply' to apply the selected operations to the threats. The selected operations will be applied.
