You will need to use another computer and download Kaspersky rescue disk. After downloading the disk image burn it to a cd and boot the machine with this disk. Run the rescue disk and it will detect the infected files. When the program if finished select remove all infected files and reboot your computer. You also need to either install a good antivirus program or update the one you have to protect against this type of infection. The Kaspersky rescue disk can be downloaded from their site here:

Hi there my computer has a trojan virus and i am confused as to how remove it without paying. I downloaded stopzilla and lost money due to downloading the wrong programme. I dont know what i am doing.


Hi,
Trojan Horse virus is very difficult to detect and remove. Here's a way I know and you don't have to pay for this. Download Malwarebytes. Run a scan and then quarantine all those infected files.

My pc infected by virus (registry, trojan, p.let). which i can't ftp,change my ip add,locked some my prog etc. so i want to format my pc and restore it ASAP.


if the virus infected most of your files & programs, and REFORMATTING is the best solution, but you'll lost everything. But if you're going to make a BACK-UP of everything, then virus will have it's back-up copy as well; so if you do have a licensed anti-virus better call the anti virus support number for them to manually removed the virus on your pc.

Cannot load or download any exe files, have done the safe mode thing, can't run a trojan remover to fix...i can get into emails and on web sites but no downloading or running programs


Good day sir/maam, your pc is infected by a virus that wont allow you to download files to protect itself from being removed. the wisest choice is to reinstall your windows and scan your flash drives for the virus source. visit a friend with a clean PC who may help you in scanning for the virus on your flash drives.

We have a anti virus trojan downloaded on my home computer. Can we do a system restore? Running Windows XP Home edition. What can we do if this fails?


you don't have an 'anti-virus trojan'. you have a trojan that potentially attacks your anti-virus software ;)

a system restore does not remove files, it only reverts windows to previously installed settings.

you really want to get a program to scan for and delete/purge/quarantine dodgy files.

i really do recommend Spybot S&D (search and destroy) for finding these pests, you can get it from:

www.safer-networking.org/

it also helps prevent you getting infected in future. much better than antivirus software. this Anti-Spyware software actually does the job ;)

Antivirus is basically a protection against viruses....

Basically it protects your pc from worms, trojans and viruses...

A computer worm is a self-replicating computer program.It uses a network to send copies of itself to other nodes (computerterminals on the network) and it may do so without any userintervention.

A Trojan horse, also known as a trojan, is a piece of malware which appears to perform a certain action but in fact performs many different forms of codes.

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer without permission or knowledge of the user.

Cant access files


I wouldn't try to install Norton on a machine I suspected had a virus (or at all really). There is a Norton removal tool on the Symantec website that might be useful, but you still need to get rid of the Trojan. There are a lot of free online virus scanners that should do the job. If you can go online in safe mode that would be best, or you could disable everything on startup using MSConfig.
