Download spybot search and destroy, install. Then in the modes, go to advanced. Then go to tools, look for add and remove. It'll remove it.

Have an active trojan - Trojan.Generic.KDV.178636. I am unable to find out what it does and how to get rid of it. i am using my father's virus free computer to send this and also to receive any reply....


Download from either of these links (link 1 or link 2) the Combofix utility. Depending on the existing antivirus on your system might need to disable it temporarily in order to download the utility. Save the Combofix utility at any USB stick and move it to the computer with the problem. Run the file and follow the on screen wizard, be patient it may take some minutes depending on the system errors / trojans. Note that the Combofix utility is not aa antivirus program; it doesn't protect you from viruses/trojans. Combofix can clean your system from most of the viruses/trojans. Always use an updated antivirus software.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Trojans an worms


Use a good and updated Antivirus software to Scan, detect, remove and quarantine Trojans and worms and other Viruses or Mal wares. Trojans are sent by hackers to steal information to different machine from external media to invade your privacy. The worms are also intended toward destroying the data on machines and to cause problems. Worms can multiply themselves on machines and are somewhat slow to infect.

I had problems with an extremely slow pc. I replaced mcafee with Norton 360. Norton found a few trojans,etc. All removed and i undertook a disk defragment. Then Windows xp home edition did not start in...


Both Norton and Mcafee are known for slowing pc's down.

Boot your PC as normal, but as its starting keep pressing the F8 key until some options appear on your screen. On of which will be "boot windows in safe mode".

Select that option and a windows shell should open.

Once open got to Start - Control Panel - Add/remove programmes and uninstal both mcafee and norton.

Once complete, reboot and see how you PC runs.

Assuming its working ok now, go back to your control panel - security centre - enable windows firewall.

Go online to "Filehippo.com" and download and istall the free version of AVG (anti virus software) once installed let it scan your system.

Then go back to Filehippo.com, download and install Ccleaner. This has loads of tools, :-
1) Cleaner clears all the tempory internet files of your pc.

2) Startup - you can reduce the number of programes you want th start up when booting.

You don't need any here because you can access all programmes via start but I'd leave AVG and any securtiy related to start and delete the rest. But its probably better to just disable the rest until you're happy with which programmes auto start.

Good Luck

I have a trojan that I can not get off my computer.


You can restore Windows XP to an earlier date, and that will restore your computer. That's the easiest way. You can get a free scan from MicroTrend at this site: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/. It will scan and quarantine viruses and trojans on your computer for free. I, personally, would try the restore option first. Go to "Help and Support", then pick Backup and Restore", then pick "Restore" and find a date before you started having problems. You won't lose any data or pics, etc.

I have just encountered Trojans and other viruses. How can they all be removed?


Hi,

There are lot of online virus scanners, you can try anyone of them in cleaning your system trojan and malware progrms, if you were not able to run any antivirus scanner

Here is the link for performing online scanning

http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

If you can install antivrus, just dwnload avast home edition for free, update the database and perform a STARTUP SCAN, which removes all the virus while the system gets booted up

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.

Help me..whats going on with windows xp home edition


When installing a new operating system, all file saved will be deleted. Since you've lost all data, you might as well format the entire drive, and then reinstall the vista inspirat thing. Then, download an Avast! anti virus form avast.com. Download the home version, which is free and scan the computer for any viruses. Delete every last one of the suckers.
