What is Phone.exe?

The genuine Phone.exe file is a software component of Nero SIPPS by Nero.
Phone.exe is an executable file that runs Nero SIPPS, a VoIP client that lets users make voice and video calls over the Internet. This is a critical component for the Nero SIPPS and should not be directly removed. Nero SIPPS is a VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) application for making phone calls using a data connection such as Broadband Internet. The program also features video conferencing, instant messaging and answering machine capabilities. SIPPS is also available in a free version that comes without these features. Nero is a German software developer best known for their flagship disc burning software program, the Nero Suite. Richard Lesser founded the company in 1995 as Ahead Software GmbH but the company changed their name to Nero in 2005. Nero became quite popular after many OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) decided to bundle the suite with their hardware products. Nero is headquartered in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Best practices for resolving Phone issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with Phone. 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 Phone.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.
