What is Cherry.exe trojan

Experts say that Trojan software make up the biggest part of all harmful software, according to the fact that they are simple in operation, suitable for various illegal tasks and cheap. These aims in most cases have semi-legal or illegal specific, such as downloading and maintaining already installed malware, espionage, the steal of passwords and important information or botnets creation. The most important weakness of Trojan viruses is being explained by their name - Trojans can't infect anything without human permission. In last years, people started to think that any perilous or suspicious programs are viruses, but we should say that viruses, instead of Trojans, can easily distribute themselves and penetrate the unprotected PC. Trojans effectively infest computers with help of other malware or with customer's help, but cannot make it on their own. After infecting the system, Trojan virus is nearly impossible to reveal manually which makes it a very efficient tool for swindlers. We say all this to show one easy statement: you should keep Trojans away from the device, since it's very hard to remove them then to avoid them.

There's a common (and bad) opinion that AV utility is capable of defending your computer from malware. Antiviruses are extremely useful, but they can't restrict you the access to malicious websites, and forbid you to download anything you want, including viruses. But, if you will help your AV software to act, and won't prevent him from working, the computer will be safe. You can achieve this goal via two easy methods:

  • The easiest choice is to completely stop using utilities of suspicious background. By these we mean all the utilities downloaded not from the official developer websites or trusted distributors. Obviously, all cracked copies of licensed software also are potentially dangerous. If you quit downloading suchlike programs, the chances of infection would be reduced to a minimum, and AV-tool can rapidly cope with this minimum.
  • If you're not ready to fully abandon the use of unlicensed utilities, you have to carefully inspect all programs that you are installing. Trojans most often lurk under the guise of good utilities such as driver updaters, browsers, system optimizers, AV programs, search engines and browser games. Do not install weird programs from this list, and when any unlicensed tool is installing - watch closely at the installation, revoking all offers for getting additional programs.

Use these directions and you'll clearly see their fruits: your machine will be speedy, clean and workable, and will stay so for years.
