The Novo Optimizer Gpu Miner is a stealthy application, which may be distributed via freeware and fake downloads so that it can be installed without the targeted user’s knowing approval. While it is undoubtedly good news that the Novo Optimizer GPU Miner is not unsafe, users should be aware that software of this sort may consume a significant amount of hardware resources to mine a crypto currency for its operator. Users who have the Novo Optimizer GPU Miner running on their computers may often not be aware that this is happening, and only find out that there’s something wrong when they opt to use an application or game that also utilizes GPU resources. For example, attempting to run a modern game while the Novo Optimizer GPU Miner is mining may result in poor performance, frame rate drops, system instability and other issues.
Even if the performance is not a problem, having the Novo Optimizer GPU Miner work whenever the computer is on is likely to shorten the lifespan of the video card since it would be put under high load and, therefore, higher operating temperature constantly.
Some of the processes associated with the Novo Optimizer GPU Miner are novoone.exe, novoopt.exe, novoping.exe, npsvc.exeand windriver.exe. If you notice any of these processes running on your computer, then it is strongly recommended to use a reputable anti-malware tool to scan the system and remove the Novo Optimizer GPU Miner.
