Programs of the Trojan kind are distinguished by their multitasking, and are capable of actively resisting removal, make their own copies and reinstall after partial removal. We can help you, and at the end of this item you'll see the reliable instructions on Mylobot uninstalling. Also this way helps to clean the system from other unwanted viruses that might penetrate it. If you are familiar with Trojans - just go to the elimination instructions, but if Trojan viruses are something new for you - read the following paragraphs to learn how to guard the computer against these threat.

What is Mylobot trojan

Experts declare that Trojans make up most part of all dangerous software, according to easiness in use and efficiency. The most common examples of such tasks are updating and maintaining already installed malware, botnets creation, espionage or theft of passwords and crucial data. The only weakness of Trojans lies in their name - they cannot spread without victim's assistance. In last years, users think that any dangerous or suspicious programs are viruses, but strictly speaking, viruses, instead of Trojans, can easily spread and infest the defenseless machines. Trojan programs cannot replicate themselves, and cannot infest the machine independently. The only thing that Trojan virus can do before infesting the device is waiting until the inexperienced victim downloads it and installs it. All the facts written above lead us to a simple solution: Trojan viruses have to be found and neutralized before they get into the system!


There's a common (and wrong) thought that AV program can fully protect the device from malware. AV utilities are very helpful, but they cannot restrict you the access to infected websites, and disallow you to download any files, including malware. To make sure that the PC is protected, you should get rid of dangerous habits, and behave wisely on the Internet. You can achieve this goal through two easy methods:

  • The highly effective option is to completely stop using utilities of dubious origin. These rules concern any utility downloaded not from the official developer websites or licensed vendors. Of course, any cracked replicas of licensed tools should also be considered probably malicious. If you quit using such tools, the chances of infection would be reduced to minimal, and AV-software will be able to quickly cope with it.
  • If you are not going to completely abandon the use of pirated programs, you must thoroughly inspect all tools that you're installing. Trojans most often hide beneath the guise of useful programs such as AV programs, system optimizers, browsers, driver updaters, search engines and browser games. Do not download weird utilities from the above list, and when installing any pirated tool - thoroughly follow the installation, revoking all suggestions for getting more software.

Follow these rules and you will immediately feel their result: the PC will be safe, workable and fast, and will remain so forever.
