You need to press F8 while the pc is booting for a startup in safe mode, then when in safe mode select start windows in safe mode, go to my computer, properties>system restore tab and turn off system restore and then run the scan again as these trojans cannot be deleted when the pc is in normal use.


If your antivirus finds them but cannot heal, make a note of the file that has the trojan and then search for the file and delete it manually.


Ensure after the trojans are deleted that you tuirn system restore back on

I also learned that you can "reinstall" any viruses that were on your computer before the restore point was created, because it archived them too. You have to shut off restore so that the restore point, along with any viruses it might contain, are all deleted.

otherwise, it's ring-around-the-rosie...

How do I get rid of three trojans

Hi jff9 going by the level of information in the description. I assume the obvious is the updates has been performed for your antiviral (AV) software.
failing the above ... and depending on the AV software you use. I suggest have a look at AVAST. It is free to licence and good as any industry software.

also try out "trend's " HIJACKTHIS download and install. if you see anything that resembles the trojans. It can be removed.
as always ... make sure you have a good backup of your data before performing any changes when using hijackthis. Please note ... the website has a help file to assist in identifying what you should be looking for.,

I have trojan like which can affect my laptop hack password take out my credit card details.

Have you got an anti-virus program?
If you have did it remove this trojan virus?
If you have not an anti-virus program or the program cannot remove this trojan, then I recommend you format the hard drive and reinstall Windows, the laptop device drivers and your programs.
This is the only sure way to remove such a threat.
Although this is a drastic method, it is better to be sure you do not lose your money to crooks. After installing Windows, install a good quality anti-virus program and keep the virus definition files updated regularly.

How can i remove trojan virus?

Run the following program:

Once that is complete, run a Virus scan. Free trials are available from symantec. Norton Internet Security should do the trick.

Be sure to sun ComboFix FIRST though. Follow all the prompts (only a few) on Combofix and allow it to install the Windows Recovery Console. It will do everything else. Then insall your antivirus, update it and run a scan.

Should do the trick, if not let me know!
