Important: Some malware camouflages itself as Main.exe, particularly when located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, for example not-a-virus:RiskTool.Win32.BitCoinMiner.byx or not-a-virus:Monitor.Win32.NeoSpy.pq (detected by Kaspersky), and TSPY_SPATET.BMC or TROJ_SPNR.0BL412 (detected by TrendMicro). Therefore, you should check the Main.exe process on your PC to see if it is a threat. We recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security. This was one of the Top Download Picks of The Washington Post and PC World.
A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with Main. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.
Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
