So, Trojan viruses are the largest group of viruses in modern info - space, which is used by web-criminals for many purposes. The regular examples of these tasks are botnets development, theft of passwords and crucial information, updating and controlling already installed viruses or spying on the user. The only disadvantage of Trojan viruses lies in their name - they can't infect anything without victim's consent.

There is a widespread (and bad) thought that antivirus is capable of protecting your computer from viruses. Antiviral utilities are extremely useful, but they can't block you the access to malicious webpages, and prohibit you to download anything you want, including malware. To make sure that the machine is protected, you should reconsider your habits, and behave wisely on the Internet. It's not difficult, and you'll have to abide one of the following rules:

  • The safest choice is to fully quit using tools of suspicious origin. These rules concern any program downloaded not from the official developer websites or well-known vendors. Naturally, the pirated copies of paid utilities should also be treated as potentially malicious. If you stop installing such tools, the probability of infection would be reduced to a minimum, and antivirus can quickly cope with it.
  • If you aren't going to fully forget about using pirated utilities, you have to carefully inspect all tools that you are installing. Trojan programs commonly lurk under the guise of helpful programs such as driver updaters, system optimizers, browser games, search engines, AV programs and browsers. Do not install weird tools from this list, and while another unlicensed tool is installing - thoroughly follow the installation, declining all offers for getting additional programs.

Listen to these tips and you'll immediately notice the fruits: the computer will become workable, speedy and clean, and will stay so forever.
