How to Remove “flac.exe”

What is Flac.exe?

flac.exe is an exeutable file that stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec. It's an audio format just like mp3 files. The word “Loosless” in its name stands for the fact that while a sound file is compressed to flac.exe format, there is no looss in audio quality. It compresses audio files like the zip file but with much better quality output. Taking advantage of its good name in the audiophile community, malware programmers write virus files and name it after flac.exe to spread it on the internet.

Affected Platform: Windows OS
