    Is there anyway of getting rid of it without paying for more software. I'm already with Mcafee who found it, but there is nothing to explain how to get rid of it.

How do I clear a trojan hourse virus from my mac computer?


Is it actually your computer/software telling you this or is it just an ad on the page you opened? Sometimes these websites are set up to scare a person. Which AV software are you using? And which OS do you have on your MAC?

What's trojan horse .I found that name in after my scan.


The Trojan is a type of virus. You know, like the Trojan Horse legend ... the Greeks sheltered in a huge wooden horse presented as a gift to the people of the city they were trying to conquer and when the people of the city brought the horse in, the greeks killed them all. The same idea is with this Trojan virus. It hides in an suspicious program and when you run that program it starts to do some damage.

I recently removed trojans off my mums computer and now its blockin the internet pages can not download or access facebook, message says that computer is not protected.


You still have the trojan. Tha's why they are called trojans, because they hide and re-appear.

Try at least five different scanners. But ultimately, you may have to re-install Windows.

Pnsfuck worm has infected computer and left blue icons all over desktop and disabled system restore and search,run functions


I had the same issue. Translating from Indonesian was not very helpful. I began by running A-Squared 4.5 FREE virus remover. This found everything that others did not. TrojanDownloader.Win 32. DElf!k, Virut!K, Crypt!K, Trojan-Banker.Win32.Barbra!K, etc. After that the icons stayed but not activating. Yesterday I tried (after months) the windows tool Clean Up Unused Desktop items. It recognized the files, put them in a folder. I renamed the folder and deleted it. Ran A-Squared again and all is well now...after several months of looking for options and translating Indo languages...pointless. So there u have it. A_Squared FREE, then Remove Unused Desktop Items. Rename file delete, A Squared again. ALL DONE AND CLEAN!!!! I will curtsy now:)

I can't get rid of a trojan "DNSChanger.f!rootkit". Any ideas?


download the "search and distory" from spybot.
take the computer off line while you scan for Trojan.
you need to scan the machine few time and restart it in bewteen each scan.

do a search on google for "dnsChanger*". and check the registry following the instruction.
NOTE: CARE MUST BE TAKEN WHEN VIEWING AND CHANGE THE SETTING IN THE REGISTRY.
make a backup copy of the registry if you are going to change anything at all.
