Hi gallgaret...

To remove a virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer...do it the EASY way...let someone else do it for you.
Start your computer, as the computer is starting keep tapping the F8 Key.
This will start the computer in the Safe Mode.
Once in the safe mode go to the following webage below and download,install, and run Microsoft Safety Scanner for FREE.
Once you run the Microsoft Safety Scanner (it may take quite a while depending on the size of your hard drive) it will remove all the virus's,trojans,worms,etc it finds, if it does not completely remove them all you will be given a chance to chat with a Microsoft Professional thru a pop open window and he will take control of your computer (with your permission) and finish removing all the rest of the virus's, trojans, or worms that are on your computer for FREE!! Can't beat FREE!!
Please take time to rate me

What is trojan horse virus


A Trojan Horse is full of as much trickery as the mythological Trojan Horse it was named after. The Trojan Horse, at first glance will appear to be useful software but will actually do damage once installed or run on your computer. Those on the receiving end of a Trojan Horse are usually tricked into opening them because they appear to be receiving legitimate software or files from a legitimate source. When a Trojan is activated on your computer, the results can vary. Some Trojans are designed to be more annoying than malicious (like changing your desktop, adding silly active desktop icons) or they can cause serious damage by deleting files and destroying information on your system. Trojans are also known to create a backdoor on your computer that gives malicious users access to your system, possibly allowing confidential or personal information to be compromised. Unlike viruses and worms, Trojans do not reproduce by infecting other files nor do they self-replicate.

Please rate the solution if helpful. Thank you

I got a virus (I believe it was a trojan horse), I removed it my self, but now my computer is slow, and I can only use Opera as an internet browser (I'm using it right now). I was wondering how to reboot...


Without a proper antivirus, your computer remains vulnerable to various malware, spyware, spam, rootkits, Trojan horses, and other viruses. Keyloggers and rootkits attack your PC and start destroying and corrupting the Windows registries. A corrupt Windows registry disturbs and slows down the processing of your computer. Hence, you suffer slow speed and hanging problems while working on the computer.
Avira AntiVir Professional is an excellent program to detect and remove any virus or malware threat. With advanced heuristic analysis and detection technology, the software application keeps checking for malpractices that might be carried in your computer.

I have worms and trojans so how do i reboot


I do not understand your question. If you have worms and trojans, rebooting is not going to fix them. You need to run anti-virus / anti-spyware / anti-malware software to fix these problems. There are numerous free solutions AVG and Comodo are two I recommend to my customers. AVG is less comprehensive but requires less user intervention to install and use. Comodo provides comprehensive protection but includes a firewall you need to setup and will ask lots of questions during computer use.

Laptop is running but screen constant black


it seems the sudden loss of power fried the screen...or it could be the video card that might have downed.  always try to use keyboard combos like crtrl+alt+del or alt F4 before resorting to such violent measures :(

Does FREE work?

AVAST FREE, best free antivirus there is.Right click on download link open in new tab. download from the site and schedule a boot scan, reboot and watch the fun. (I told one teen she would have to pay her mom 10 cents for every virus/trojan/or worm. 848 later she screamed)
click on the free registration link, they will e-mail you a registration id.

Pop ups and trojan horse


You could try installing www.spybot.com although this may not be possible without admin rights (you wont have permission to install the app)

The other thing you could do is boot in safemode (F8 at the start) and see can you install it now.

If its XP you could try do a system restore back to a point when your laptop was working. Then install spybot

Finally you could make a dos virus scan disk from your antivirus ofware and let it scan windows and your drive before the trojan is started.

It can be tricky to remove, but if you tell me the name of the trojan there maybe an application/utilitie to remove that specific virus.

Hope this helps!
