How to remove Hacktool Win32 Keygen trojan

Today we will talk about Hacktool Win32 Keygen Trojan that provoked the massive wave of concern lately. If your PC is infested by this software, then you most likely face certain difficulties with its deletion. Trojans are known for their multitasking, and are capable of strongly resisting removal, create their own copies and recover after partial removal. We can help you, and at the end of this article you will find the effective instructions on Hacktool Win32 Keygen elimination. Trojan viruses don't infect the device on their own, so you better not focus on the uninstalling of one program, but clean the whole system. If you know enough about Trojan viruses - skip the following parts, but if Trojans threat is something new for you - read the following paragraphs to learn how to protect your device against such threats.


Statistics show that Trojans make up the largest share of all malicious programs, according to usability and efficiency. These purposes sometimes have illegal or semi-legal properties, such as botnets creation, updating and maintaining already installed malware, theft of passwords and crucial information or espionage. Despite the multiple advantages, Trojans have one well-known weakness - they can't infect user's computer on their own. Recent time, users started to think that any perilous or suspicious software are viruses, but we should say that viruses, in contradistinction to Trojans, can automatically distribute themselves and infect the unprotected PC. Trojans cannot replicate themselves, and cannot infest the device without victim's permission. After infecting the machine, the Trojan is very hard to discover manually that is highly appreciated by all kinds of fraudsters. All things that are described above lead us to an obvious solution: Trojan viruses should be recognized and neutralized until they get into the PC.


There's a widespread (and wrong) idea that antivirus can fully protect the system from suspicious programs. AV software are extremely helpful, but they cannot restrict you the access to dangerous webpages, and disallow you to download anything you want, including malware. To ensure security, you should reconsider your habits, and behave wisely on the Internet. There are two methods to achieve this effect:

  • The most effective method is to completely quit using utilities of suspicious background. By these we mean any tool downloaded not from the reliable developer websites or licensed distributors. Of course, all cracked replicas of good tools also are probably malicious. If you stop downloading suchlike programs, the chances of infection would be reduced to a minimum, and AV-software can quickly deal with this minimum.
  • If you are not ready to completely forget about using not official utilities, you have to carefully examine each installed tool. Trojans usually lurk under the guise of helpful programs such as browsers, browser games, driver updaters, antiviral tools, search engines and system optimizers. Do not install strange programs from this list, and when another unlicensed program is installing - thoroughly follow the installation, declining all suggestions for downloading more programs.

Use these tips and you will clearly see their fruits: your computer will become workable, safe and fast, and will remain so for years.
