Trojan.Gampass and Trojan.Wimad

My friend played his cd on my pc and Norton detected these two infected files but couldn't remove them.
I took out the cd and scanned the pc again and Norton didn't pick up anything. Does this mean the pc is still clean?

Hi sdcurrie

Yes your PC is still clean the reason why Norton could'nt remove the virusses is becuase it is on the cd and norton can't write to the cd but it did stop the viruses to spread to your PC.
Just another example why it so important to have a antivirus installed and to keep it up to date.

There are Trojans on my HP, I have Vista Hm Prm.


Hello there Rebecca.

I am so sorry to hear about your Trojan / Virus woes. It is virtually impossible to get rid of a trojan, even if you know exactly what file it came in with (or files) because once you have it the trojan infects thousands of other files on your computer. You probably noticed the computer getting slower and slower, and having worse and worse symptoms.

What you will want to do is back up anything you need to save (documents, pictures, music, things like this). The easiest way to back them up is to copy them to a USB thumb drive, you can get them very cheap from a place like Best Buy or even Sams Club / Costco. Just drag and drop all of your important files onto the new USB drive. If you don't have any files you care about keeping that is even easier. Just go ahead to the next step after this.

The next step would be to wipe the drive clean and start over, to do that you will need to boot off of your Windows CD and follow the steps (either that or the RESTORE cd that came with your computer). As soon as you get your Windows back on the computer make sure you download a good antivirus software. The best free one is AVG Free. Just do a google search for it when you get your computer back running. Do not attempt to plug in the USB drive with your old files before getting antivirus up and running just incase one of those files got infected.

From there you should be good to go, trust me you don't want to attempt to remove the trojan manually, it is virtually impossible to do it that way. Even an experienced IT professional can not do it in most cases.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

I help how to remove trojan/other virus from my window 7 laptop.please help me.


Here's a fee-based service to do it for you:

http://us.norton.com/nortonlive/

To detect the threat level, you may want to try the free (& advertised on TV) web site
www.MySafePC.com, but virus removal will cost $$ - they're happy to tell you you're infected for
free, though.

Here's Symantec's list of things to do:

If you suspect that your computer is infected with a threat or you receive a threat alert, and you want to make sure that your computer is secure.

You can perform a virus scan to eliminate any known threat from your computer. Scanning your computer for threats is easy if you follow the step-by-step instructions provided in this article. The scanning process may take an hour or more, depending on the number of files you have on your computer.

To detect and remove all the threats from your computer, follow these five steps:

• Install the latest virus definitions.

• Stop all running programs and temporarily disconnect the computer from any network.

• Run the virus scan.

• Install the latest Windows updates.

• Run a full system scan once again to ensure that there are no threats.

The first step is to check whether you can install the latest virus definitions, as some threats may block your access to all the security products' Web sites including Symantec's Web site. The subsequent steps vary depending on whether you can download the latest definitions from the Symantec Web site or not.
