What is Worker.exe trojan

Experts declare that Trojan software make up most share of all unwanted software, thanks to the fact that they are cheap, suitable for various illegal tasks and simple in operation. These aims sometimes have semi-legal or illegal properties, such as the steal of passwords and important information, espionage, downloading and maintaining already installed malware or botnets creation. Despite their abundance of advantages, Trojan viruses got one major weakness - they cannot get into victim's computer without his help. In recent years, users started to think that all dangerous or unwanted software are viruses, but we should say that you can't call Trojans viruses, since virus is the self-replicating software, capable of avalanche spreading over data carriers and the Internet. Trojan viruses easily infest PC's with help of other malware or with user's assistance, but cannot do it on their own. After infesting the workstation, Trojan virus is very hard to reveal without assistance of AV tools that is very appreciated by all sorts of hackers. All these things were said to prove one plain thought: user should keep Trojans away from the PC, because it's much more difficult to eliminate them then to neutralize them.

There's a widespread (and wrong) idea that antiviral software is capable of defending the PC from viruses. No antiviral tool can help you if you download new viruses on a daily basis. But, if you will assist your antivirus to work, instead of preventing him from doing its job, the system will be safe. You can achieve this aim with help of two simple methods:

  • The safest option is to totally stop using tools of suspicious provenance. By these we mean all the programs downloaded not from website of its developer or well-known distributors. Of course, any pirated copies of good tools also are probably harmful. If you stop installing such tools, the probability of penetration would be lowered to a minimum, and antivirus can easily cope with this minimum.
  • If you aren't going to totally forget about using pirated programs, you should carefully examine all utilities that you're going to install. Trojan programs usually hide beneath the guise of nice programs such as AV programs, driver updaters, system optimizers, browser games, browsers and search engines. Don't install suspicious tools from this list, and when installing another unlicensed utility - watch closely at the installation, canceling all suggestions for downloading extra software.

Abide to these advices and you will immediately feel their fruits: your machine will be workable, clean and speedy, and will be so for a long time.
