Crypto-Loot Miner cannot be labeled as a dangerous threat to your system and, as you may also know, crypto-mining is still considered legal; well, sort of. As a matter of fact, we believe that when your PC is used by a third-party program to mine cryptocurrencies using your computer as a resource and all this without your permission or knowledge, such a program does commit a form of violation of privacy. Even if this miner may not use all your CPU power to do its mining, it can cause serious slowdowns, which can make your virtual experience annoying and disruptive. Although we do not think that this particular threat can cause hardware damage with its stealthy operations, it would be best for you to take care of it before your system become almost unusable. Your PC can be exploited by this miner in different ways, which we will go into details about right below. We recommend that you remove Crypto-Loot Miner right away. But first, let us tell you how this miner can start using your computer as its resource for crypto-mining.

We have found that this program is very similar to CoinHive Miner. It is actually offered as a service on its promotional website,, where it is promoted as a "stealthy and fast cryptocurrency miner." This miner is mainly spread as a Javascript that its users can insert in their websites and thus promote mining and generate some income from it. This file is available here: This also means that this program does not necessarily spread as malware infections usually do. You can simply be exposed to it by landing on the wrong website that happens to have this script running in the background. So when you are viewing a site that is using stealthy crypto-mining, you may experience serious drops in your PC's performance. In order to delete Crypto-Loot Miner in such a case, it could be enough for you to close the current tab or the browser window, and try to avoid such sites in the future by using mining-prevention tools, for example.

On the other hand, it is also possible that this miner appears on your computer after you install a questionable free program or a whole freeware bundle. In other words, this threat can infect your browsers as a browser extension and could go on operating in the background every time you open your browsers. In order to avoid such a tool to enter your system, you need to stick with official websites when it comes to downloading free software and updates. Downloading a program from a shady torrent or shareware site could easily infect your computer with a bundle malicious threats, including this miner in an extension form. This also means that finding this miner on board could present multiple threats to your operating system. No wonder why we emphasize the need for a full-system malware scan after you delete Crypto-Loot Miner from your system.

So basically, when this miner is operating and using your CPU power as a resource for mining cryptocurrencies, your computer will run way slower, which you must notice right away. In fact, this program can use up to 50% of your CPU power, which can become annoying quite quickly. Other than that, we cannot claim that this miner presents any serious dangerous. This program can actually mine any cryptocurrency that the user wishes (Monero, Bitcoin, etc). Although crypto-mining is not yet considered illegal, you should know that this miner can use your computer's resources without your permission. Also, someone is making money out of using your computer, while you are only experiencing the downside of all this by having a slower system, which can be rather distracting. We believe that it is important to remove Crypto-Loot Miner from your computer, if you want your freedom and your PC performance back. Why would you tolerate a "parasite" in your virtual world if you have no benefit whatsoever out of it?

As we have mentioned, it may be enough for you to close your browser window in order to stop Crypto-Loot Miner. However, if it is actually present on your system, you may be better off resetting your browsers to eliminate all possible browser-related threats like questionable extensions. Please follow our guide, which we have prepared for you below, if you are not familiar with the necessary steps of browser reset. Keep in mind that your computer could be infected with several malicious threats that may also need your immediate attention now. If you do not believe you can cope with them manually, we advise you to install a trustworthy anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter that will also protect your PC from future malware attacks.
