Do you know what nengine.dll is?
Nengine.dll is a dynamic link library file that runs in the background of the system. It is associated with Mobogenie family of freeware applications. Although Mobogenie applications are not considered computer infections, nengine.dll itself is classified as adware. It also known as “NewNext Helper Engine”, and if you had no intention to have these programs on your computer and you have installed Mobogenie or other associated applications accidentally, it would be for the best to terminate nengine.dll and all the related programs from the system as soon as possible.
Once again, it is important to point out that nengine.dll is not a direct computer security threat. However, it is configured to run automatically with each system start. The registry entry that allows nengine.dll to auto-start is places under Current User Run registry key under the name of “NextLive”. The file itself is 1.2MB in size and its common path is C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application data\newnext.me\nengine.dll.
As it has been mentioned in the first program, it is very likely that nengine.dll has been installed onto your computer together with Mobogenie, which is said to have been developed by Beijing Yang Fan Jing He Information Consulting Co. Ltd. Although the program itself is not a computer virus, it is very often installed bundled with freeware.
For example, it is known to be bundled with Conduit, OpenCandy, Quick Downloader and a number of other installers that are available at third party websites. It means that if you have Mobogenie on your computer, there is a high chance that there are a high number of other potentially unwanted applications installed as well.
Based security research, Mobogenie (and subsequently nengine.dll) can arrive bundled with SecretSauce or WebDownload Manager. If you are not sure what potentially unwanted programs are installed on your computer, you should run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner. It will help you determine which programs are necessary to be removed from the PC. You will also be able to invest in a licensed antimalware tool if need be.
You will find manual removal instructions for Mobogenie below this description, but a full system scan with a computer security application is always a good idea, because this way you will really find out if your computer is absolutely safe. Also, if you experience any difficulties removing nengine.dll or Mobogenie, you can always leave me a comment and will figure the problem out together.
