The subject of this piece is Roraccoon Trojan, on which we’ve been receiving more and more concern recent days. If Roraccoon already penetrated the PC, then you have to know how to remove it. Trojans are known for their multitasking, and are capable of strongly resisting removal, setup their backups and reinstall after incorrect removal.

If you are familiar with Trojans - just scroll down to the deletion instructions, but if Trojan viruses are something new for you - read the following paragraphs to understand how to shield the device against these threats.


What is Roraccoon trojan

So, Trojans are the biggest part of harmful programs in modern infosphere that is used by hackers for many purposes. The very common examples of these tasks are botnets development, downloading and controlling already installed adware, espionage or theft of passwords and crucial information. Despite the abundance of strengths, Trojans have one important weakness - they cannot penetrate customer's computer independently. Recent time, users started to think that all dangerous or unwanted programs are viruses, but strictly speaking, you can't call Trojans viruses, since virus can replicate itself, that can quickly distribute itself through flash drives and the Internet. Trojan viruses cannot clone themselves, and can’t infect the device independently. After entering the machine, Trojan virus is almost impossible to reveal manually that is highly valuable for all sorts of swindlers. All the facts written above bring us to a simple solution: Trojans should be found and disarmed before they penetrate the computer!

There's a common (and wrong) opinion that antivirus is capable of protecting your system from viruses. No antivirus can protect your device if you download new adware every day. But, if you'll help your AV software to act, instead of preventing him from doing its job, the computer will be protected. You can achieve this goal through two simple methods:

  • The safest method is to fully stop using software of dubious origin. By these we mean any utility downloaded not from the reliable developer websites or well-known distributors. Of course, the cracked replicas of useful tools must also be treated as probably harmful. If you stop downloading such programs, the probability of penetration would be reduced to minimal, and antivirus can rapidly cope with this minimum.
  • If you are not ready to fully forget about using pirated content, you must carefully examine all utilities that you're installing. Trojans most often hide under the guise of helpful utilities such as system optimizers, search engines, browsers, browser games, AV programs and driver updaters. Don't download strange tools from this list, and while installing any unlicensed program - watch closely at the installation, revoking all proposals for downloading extra programs.

Abide to these rules and you will immediately notice their result: the computer will become quick, safe and workable, and will stay so forever.
