Is Google Crash Handler a Virus?
The GoogleCrashHandler.exe process is not a virus and is completely legitimate. However, some viruses can spoof the process name to disguise GoogleCrashHandler.exe. To make sure it’s not a virus:
Open Task Manager Ctrl + Shift + Esc.
Right click on Google Crash Handler.
Select “Open File Location”.
If the file is located in the path C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Google \ Update \ 126.96.36.1992, then it is not a virus, but you can also scan the system with the built-in antivirus. It is good enough for detecting bogus processes on its system.
