CMDSRVS.EXE ransomware virus

Let's talk about CMDSRVS.EXE Trojan, on which we’ve been receiving lots of complaints lately. If CMDSRVS.EXE already penetrated the computer, then you most likely encounter some issues with its deletion. Trojan viruses are known for their high effectiveness, and are capable of strongly resisting removal, setup their own copies and recover after partial removal. We can help you, and in the end of this article you'll see the effective instructions on CMDSRVS.EXE removal. Trojan viruses don't infest the device solely, so you better not aim at the uninstalling of one program, but scan the system as a whole. You can immediately go to the removal, but we advise you to familiarize with the info about the Trojans, as it might help you avoid this threat in the future.


What is CMDSRVS.EXE trojan

Experts say that Trojans make up most part of all dangerous software, due to easiness in use and efficiency. The regular examples of such tasks are botnets development, the steal of passwords and other data, downloading and maintaining already installed malware or espionage. Despite the numerous advantages, Trojan viruses got one significant disadvantage - they cannot penetrate victim's device on their own. Recent time, people think that all dangerous or suspicious programs are viruses, but we should say that you can't call Trojans viruses, because virus is the self-replicating program, capable of quickly distribute itself over local networks and the Internet. Trojan viruses easily infest PC's with help of other tools or with customer's permission, but cannot make it on their own. The only thing that Trojan virus can do before infecting the PC is waiting until some naive user downloads it and installs it. All things that are described in this paragraph lead us to an easy decision: Trojans should be found and neutralized until they get into the PC!

There's a common (and bad) idea that antivirus is capable of defending your device from viruses. AV software are very useful, but they can't restrict you the access to dangerous webpages, and forbid you to download any files, including malware. But, if you'll help your antivirus to work, instead of preventing him from working, the PC will be protected. You can achieve this goal via two easy methods:

  • If you are not ready to fully forget about using pirated content, you have to thoroughly examine all utilities that you're installing. Trojan viruses commonly lurk beneath the guise of nice tools such as AV programs, system optimizers, browsers, driver updaters, browser games and search engines. Do not install weird utilities from this list, and when any pirated program is installing - thoroughly follow the installation, canceling all offers for downloading additional software.
  • The easiest option is to completely quit using tools of suspicious origin. These rules concern any tool downloaded not from the official developer websites or licensed distributors. Obviously, the pirated replicas of licensed programs should also be considered probably harmful. If you quit downloading suchlike software, the probability of penetration would be reduced to a minimum, and antivirus will be able to rapidly deal with it.

Abide to these rules and you will immediately notice the result: the computer will become workable, speedy and clean, and will remain so for years.
