What is Trojan.gen.npe.2 trojan

Experts say that Trojans make up the largest share of all undesired programs, due to the fact that they are cheap, easy in use and suitable for various illegal tasks. The most common examples of such purposes are updating and controlling already installed adware, espionage, the steal of passwords and important data or botnets creation. Despite the abundance of strengths, Trojan viruses have one major disadvantage - they cannot get into user's device without his help. Recent time, people began to think that any perilous or advertising software are viruses, but we should say that viruses, instead of Trojans, know how to easily spread and infest the unprotected systems. Trojans cannot reproduce themselves, and can’t infest the system independently. There's only thing that Trojan can do before penetrating the system is to wait until some naive customer downloads it and installs it. We say all this to prove one easy thought: user shouldn't let Trojans to enter the machine, because it's very hard to uninstall them then to avoid them.

There is a widespread (and wrong) thought that antivirus can totally protect the computer from viruses. No antivirus can help you if you download new harmful software on a daily basis. But, if you will help your AV software to work, instead of preventing him from working, the device will be safe. You can achieve this aim via two easy methods:

  • If you are not going to fully forget about using pirated utilities, you should carefully examine each downloaded utility. Trojans usually hide under the guise of helpful utilities such as AV programs, search engines, system optimizers, browser games, driver updaters and browsers. Don't install weird programs from the above list, and when installing any unlicensed tool - thoroughly follow the installation, canceling all proposals for installing more software.
  • The safest method is to fully quit using tools of suspicious origin. By these we mean all the utilities downloaded not from website of its developer or trusted distributors. Of course, any cracked copies of good software also are potentially harmful. If you stop installing such software, the probability of penetration would be reduced to a minimum, and AV-program will be able to quickly cope with this minimum.

Abide to these tips and you'll immediately notice their fruits: your PC will become fast, workable and safe, and will remain so forever.
