What is Trojan-spy.win32.agent.gen trojan

So, Trojans are the biggest part of unwanted software in current infosphere that is used by web-criminals for many purposes. The most common examples of these purposes are botnets building, espionage, theft of passwords and crucial data or updating and controlling already installed viruses. Despite the numerous advantages, Trojan viruses got one well-known disadvantage - they can't infect customer's PC on their own. In recent years, users began to think that any malicious or advertising programs are viruses, but strictly speaking, Trojans can’t be called so, since virus can replicate itself, capable of avalanche spreading through data carriers and the Internet. Trojans easily infest systems with little assistance of other tools or with user's permission, but cannot make it on their own. There's only thing that Trojan can do before entering the device is to wait until the naive customer downloads it and installs it. All the facts written above bring us to one solution: Trojans should be detected and neutralized until they infest the machine!

There's a widespread (and bad) idea that antivirus is capable of protecting your system from malware. No antivirus can protect your device if you daily download and install adware. But, if you will help your AV utility to act, instead of preventing him from working, the computer will be protected. It's not difficult, and you'll have to abide one of the written down advices:

  • The easiest way is to fully quit using utilities of dubious background. These principles concern any utility downloaded not from website of its developer or well-known distributors. Obviously, all pirated copies of licensed tools must also be treated as potentially dangerous. If you stop installing suchlike tools, the chances of infection would be lowered to minimal, and AV-program can rapidly deal with it.
  • If you're not going to completely forget about using unlicensed utilities, you have to thoroughly examine all utilities that you are installing. Trojan viruses most often hide under the guise of nice programs such as system optimizers, search engines, AV programs, browser games, browsers and driver updaters. Don't install strange programs from this list, and while another unlicensed tool is installing - watch closely at the installation, declining all proposals for getting additional programs.

Follow these directions and you will clearly see their fruits: the PC will become speedy, workable and safe, and will remain so for years.
