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.
trojan horse virus is infected all files and registry of your OS, sometimes your pc keep on hanging or reset automatically and crush your hardisk, best solution is reformat your pc, and install fresh copy of your OS and drivers after that install your anti virus that you have before installing other application thanks.
The best way would be to reformat the hard drive and reinstall windows. Make sure you have backups of any programs and files you want to keep and don't forget to reinstall your drivers. Download your network interphase card driver onto a flashdrive, external hdd, cd, etc. that way you can connect to the internet and download the rest of the drivers. Good luck.
try running the windows 7 update, search online feature. It has found some troubled drivers, I bought 7 when it first came out and a load of drivers were missing ( some still are) but as developers catch up more drivers are becoming available.
When you turn it on, watch the screen carefully. Many times recovery is contained on a small partition of your hard drive. When your computer begins booting, watch for a short message that says something like, "For recovery press F11". It could be another F key. You will only get a couple seconds to choose it. Choose an option that does a full restore which will reformat the drive.
First, go in Control Panel, after System, then System Restore, and desactive all.
Restart the machine in Safe mode, and run a AntiVirus (like a Norton) restart again, check the file, if not missing, the solutions is search in web (or in Symantec.com) a Virus Remove Tool, OR, in DOS delete a infected file, for full asistance install a HiJack Free and send a email to me firstname.lastname@example.org
