Ein Spiel hat auch den namen lol.exe, das nennt sich League of Legends
I noticed i lost my CD/DVD Drive in my account and my sons account. It would only show up booting in Safe mode , then my AntiVirus told me it was rtying to acces the Internet which i denied it access. I had to format my pc which was a helll of a game as it wouldn't install WIndows at first , but got there eventually . PC was rebooting all the while , different ERROR messages came up.Only a complete Format will get rid of it it seems. Worst of all , i haven't a clue WHERE it came from or how long it's been on there? Spy Bot didn't find it either .
Stands for "Live On Line, comes with a weather program that is always running in system tray. I recently downloaded the instant weather and started getting it too. I have ran all my anti-virus against it, it is nothing.

yo man, please buy yourself Bitdefender Total Security and Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete... this is a very dangerous spyware virus... it was on my computer, i found it in the Task Manager, Processes list, then i right clicked on it then Properties , i located its directory, it was in ( C:\Users\(my username)\Appdata\Roaming ), it was obviously anomaly, but that's not all, i was shocked when i seen a file belongs to this Spyware its a file called HF i right clicked on it then.... it records everything you do on your PC, e.g. (facebook Log in - Chrome browser - "the things you typed in there")
It can be related to League Of Legends game which is clearly not a virus

Best practices for resolving lol issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with lol. 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 doing a repair of your installation, or in the case of Windows 8, 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 lol.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.
