What is trojan virus

Trojan viruses are the biggest part of viruses in current infosphere that is used by swindlers for various tasks. These aims sometimes have semi-legal or illegal properties, such as spying on the user, botnets creation, the steal of passwords and crucial data or updating and controlling already installed adware. The most significant weakness of Trojans lies in their name - Trojans cannot infect anything without victim's assistance. Usually users think that virus is anything that is not good for their devices, but viruses, in contradistinction to Trojans, can automatically spread and get into the defenseless device. Trojans easily infect systems with little assistance of other viruses or with victim's help, but cannot do it independently. After penetrating the system, the Trojan is almost impossible to reveal manually which makes it such a popular tool for scammers. All things that are described in this paragraph lead us to one decision: Trojan viruses should be found and neutralized before they infest the system!

There's a common (and bad) opinion that antivirus can totally defend the PC from unwanted software. AV software are extremely helpful, but they can't restrict you the access to suspicious webpages, and disallow you to download any files, including malware. But, if you will help your antivirus to work, and won't prevent him from doing its job, the system will be safe. There are two methods to achieve this effect:

  • The safest method is to completely stop using utilities of suspicious origin. By these we mean all the programs downloaded not from the official developer websites or licensed vendors. Naturally, any cracked copies of useful tools also are potentially harmful. If you quit using such tools, the chances of infestation would be decreased to a minimum, and antivirus can rapidly deal with it.
  • If you are not going to forget about using pirated utilities, you have to thoroughly inspect each downloaded utility. Trojan viruses usually hide beneath the guise of helpful programs such as driver updaters, browsers, AV tools, search engines, system optimizers and browser games. Don't download suspicious tools from the above list, and when installing another unlicensed program - watch closely at the installation, declining all offers for getting additional programs.

Listen to these directions and you'll clearly see their result: the system will be safe, fast and workable, and will remain so for years.
