Killer Network cards are a line of WiFi adapters made by Intel that are designed with gamers in mind. They’re typically found on laptops designed for playing games, and they guarantee the lowest possible latency when playing games over WiFi.

However, they won’t work without supplementary programmes like the Intel Killer Control Center or the Killer Network Service. This could cause your computer to become unusable due to a lack of available resources.

Maybe it’s a Virus.

The majority of the time, providing this service is absolutely legal and risk-free. In some cases, you may see a temporary increase in CPU usage, but that’s about it. Malware authors, however, have been known to utilise malware with a name similar to a Windows service; if a service on your computer has been demanding system resources for an extended length of time, it could be a virus.

The legitimate service can be found in C:\Program Files\KillerNetworking\KillerControlCenter. If the application you’re experiencing isn’t listed here, it may be malicious software.
