What is trojan

IT-specialists say that Trojan viruses make up most share of all perilous software, thanks to the fact that they are cheap, easy in operation and convenient for different illegal tasks. These purposes sometimes have semi-legal or illegal specific, such as botnets creation, downloading and maintaining already installed adware, spying on the user or the steal of passwords and important data. Despite the abundance of strengths, Trojan viruses have one significant weakness - they cannot get into customer's device on their own. Recent time, people think that any malicious or suspicious programs are viruses, but we should say that you can't call Trojans viruses, because virus is the self-replicating software, that can avalanche spreading over local networks and the Internet. Trojans efficiently infect systems with help of other programs or with user's permission, but can't do it independently. There's only thing that Trojan is capable of doing before entering the computer is waiting until some naive customer decides to download it and installs it. We say all this to show one simple idea: user shouldn't let Trojans to enter the computer, since it's much more difficult to uninstall them then to avoid them.

There's a widespread (and wrong) opinion that antivirus can completely protect your device from viruses. Antiviral tools are very helpful, but they can't restrict the whole Internet, and forbid you to download any files, including viruses. But, if you'll assist your antivirus to work, and won't prevent him from working, the PC will be safe. There are two ways to achieve this effect:

  • The easiest choice is to completely quit using tools of suspicious background. These principles related to all the utilities downloaded not from the official developer websites or licensed vendors. Naturally, any cracked copies of good utilities must also be considered probably harmful. If you stop using suchlike programs, the probability of penetration would be decreased to minimal, and AV-software can quickly deal with it.
  • If you're not ready to fully abandon the use of unlicensed content, you should thoroughly inspect all utilities that you are going to install. Trojan viruses most often hide beneath the guise of nice programs such as browser games, AV programs, driver updaters, search engines, browsers and system optimizers. Don't install weird tools from this list, and when installing any pirated utility - watch closely at the installation, canceling all suggestions for downloading additional software.

Use these directions and you will immediately see the result: your PC will become safe, workable and fast, and will be so forever. removal instruction
