What is Cloud.exe?

The genuine Cloud.exe file is a software component of Cloud Agent by IMT Labs.
An early cloud platform from IMT Labs, this application allowed you to store files on a remote server by logging in to this program. This process starts with Windows and allows you to copy files back and forth to the remote site as if you are operating between local folders. Founded by a Danish entrepreneur, IMT Labs no longer supports this software and now primarily distributes chat bot software.

Best practices for resolving Cloud issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with Cloud. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic 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 resmon 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 DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the Cloud.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detects and removes sleeping spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, malware and trackers from your hard drive.
