How to Remove Trojan Horse Or the Top 3 Ways to Get Rid of Trojan Virus
The good thing about Trojan Horses: It’s not that difficult to remove them. But the bad thing is that Trojan Viruses are quite difficult to find.
Although they will not corrupt files or delete things on your hard disk, using them allows hackers to detect your credit card number, your social security number or some other private data. And of course, this is 1000 times worse.
The problem about deleting Trojan Horses is that since they have a variety of forms, there is no single method to delete them. Normally, using some antivirus software will help detecting and removing the Trojan Horses hiding on your hard disk. You can also try to clear the temporary internet files and delete them manually. Otherwise try this:
1) Open the System Information Utility (msinfo32.exe). You will find it at:
C:program files common microsoft shared ms info. This program shows you all the processes running on any windows system, even those that are hidden from the task list that you normally use to look up the running processes on your PC. Now look for task listings which you do not recognize. Check the filenames and paths. Open your virus scanner and run the executable or.dll through it.
2) Open your antivirus software. Run a virus scan. After the scan delete the value that was detected from the registry (first back up the registry!):
A) Click “Start > Run”
B) Type “regedit”
C) Click “OK”
D) Go to the subkey:
E) Now delete any value in the right pane that was detected during the scan
F) Exit the Registry Editor
3) If the steps 1) and 2) didn’t help, download the free program HijackThis. It shows all the processes running on your system. Once listed, you can manually select and delete the fishy processes.
The problem is you have to know which processes are normal and which maybe caused by a trojan. If you delete the wrong ones – if the worst comes to worst – you won’t be able to restart your system. To avoid this, you can post your hijack log on some internet forums and wait for help.
But this can take a lot of time – and get on your nerves as well. Once, it took me more than 2 weeks to completely cure my PC from a trojan attack. Nothing seemed to help, the anti-spyware programs on my system got stuck, the internet browsers didn’t run like they should and there were no ominous processes in the hickjack log. Finally, in despair I stumbled upon NoAdware. I ran the free test. It found 14 infections and after the files were deleted, the system worked like before. I don’t know if it will solve your problems but I wish I had this program on my system from the beginning and could save the time I have wasted – and the bad emotions – trying to clean my PC on my own.
