Has anyone used a mining software called Bitcoin Generator 4.1?  When you unpack the file, the name actually says Bitcoin Minner (red flag #1).

I'm new to Bitcoin and am interested in mining. While researching information, I came across the link to download this software. Thought I'd try it out as a way to get my feet wet.  Generated a large amount of BTC (0.6371) in less than a minute and requested me to submit a payment of 0.0136 BTC to withdrawal into my wallet.

Seemed suspicious so I thought I'd ask around.

Are there any reputable mining softwares or should I be looking at hardware only?

Thanks.

That is a definite Ponzi or outright scam!
The fact that you 'earned' BTC worth over US$2.7k (in less than a minute -- riiiiiiight...) and yet they want you to PAY from an external wallet to withdraw it is the major flag....
If they were legit the withdrawal fee would come out of the 'earnings' - NOT from a separate payment.

Only using hardware or *possibly* cloud mining (of which most are scams) are the only 2 real options.

That's what I thought.  Thanks for your quick response.
np.
At current exchange of $4,300 that Ponzi or outright scam takes in $58.48 as the 'withdrawal fee' for each rube they hook... Very safe bet that after paying:
a. Pure scam and you never get the 'earnings' and have zero chance of finding who is behind it.
 or
b. more typical of a Ponzi is that you 'earn' just a little more than the withdrawal fee is and the first time you might get paid -- as bait for you to invest more to 'later earn more' in some plan that very quickly dries up with you very quickly now losing much more money than you 'earned' and again the perpetrators vanish for a while.

The fact they are using such an massive 'earnings' value as bait points to 'a'.

If you downloaded this and ran it you most likely have a virus now.

I would download malware bytes and run a scan on your system followed by a full system scan with your antivirus.
