There are so many hackers, also in the crypto system, so it can be a destruction virus:(

OMG it can be, but i do not know. Anyway, for the future:

  • Do not download and install applications from unknown sites.
  • Be wary of clicking shortened links on Twitter or any other site, regardless of source. URL shortening makes it difficult for a user to gauge a link’s legitimacy.
  • Sudden unexplained system slowdown may indicate Bitcoin mining. Check it for clues of Bitcoin-mining malware infection like an unexplained increase in processing power usage.
  • Invest in a security solution that can detect and prevent Bitcoin-mining malware from infecting your system.

If you downloaded the software from the Nicehash site (https://www.nicehash.com/?p=software#gpu) then it's mostly likely not a virus. Nicehash is hash selling service were you can either buy hash power from miners, or be a miner that sells your hashpower. I've used it and it's pretty easy to setup but the $ you make from it varies and it's very dependent on what buyers are willing to pay for the hash power. You are basically selling your hash power as a service and receiving some bitcoins in exchange. Of course Nicehash takes a cut, believe it's 3%.

karsurizero provided some great advice. Always be careful of what you install.

Because I recommend you not get so much with those minerals with the design of bitcoinminer is that those minerals are not so safe you can mine with others safer the one I see is eobot.comk
