What is Bgtools trojan

So, Trojan viruses are the very numerous group of malware in modern info - space, which is used by scammers for various purposes. The regular examples of these purposes are theft of passwords and other data, downloading and controlling already installed adware, botnets development or espionage. Despite the abundance of advantages, Trojan viruses got one well-known disadvantage - they cannot infect customer's PC on their own. In recent years, people think that any malicious or suspicious software are viruses, but we should say that you can't call Trojans viruses, since virus is the self-replicating program, capable of easily distribute itself through flash drives and the Internet. Trojan programs can’t replicate themselves, and can’t infest the machine on their own. The only thing that Trojan can do before penetrating the device is waiting until the inexperienced customer decides to download it and installs it. We say all this to demonstrate one easy statement: you should keep Trojans away from the computer, since it's much more difficult to uninstall them then to neutralize them.

There's a widespread (and wrong) idea that antiviral tool can fully shield your computer from suspicious software. Antiviral programs are extremely useful, but they cannot restrict you the access to suspicious websites, and prohibit you to download any files, including viruses. But, if you'll help your antivirus to act, instead of preventing him from doing its job, the PC will be protected. There are two ways to achieve this effect:

  • If you aren't going to fully forget about using unlicensed programs, you have to thoroughly examine all tools that you're going to install. Trojans commonly lurk beneath the guise of useful programs such as driver updaters, browser games, search engines, system optimizers, AV programs and browsers. Do not download weird programs from the above list, and while installing another pirated utility - thoroughly follow the installation, revoking all suggestions for installing more software.
  • The safest choice is to completely quit using software of dubious background. These principles concern any tool downloaded not from the official developer websites or licensed distributors. Of course, the cracked copies of good software also are potentially dangerous. If you quit using such utilities, the probability of infection would be decreased to a minimum, and antivirus can rapidly cope with this minimum.

Listen to these advices and you'll immediately notice their result: your computer will become workable, clean and speedy, and will be so for years.
