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...

hello kushlend r!!
If you can afford Kaspersky Internet Security is Best. it is costly but very good.
but if you want free ANTIVIRUS then you can use "Avira Personal". it is enough good to get rid of most of malwares, trojans and viruses.
Here is the link for downloading Avira personal ---->
you must update any antivirus regularly .
Best of Luck!!!

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.

Can not download all live updates.

If your anti virus will not update try to access an online trojan sccnner Symantec has one. If you can not access the site or complete the scan you most likely have Win32.Worm.Downadup.Gen.
It prevents any access to any antivirus software and windows updates it also turns off any installed antivirus updates. Removal is actually really simple just go here

I install symantec antivirus but its disable auto protect in tray show icon red round

You got a virus that designed to disable Norton. Do yourself a favour, uninstall Norton. Here a link to an excellent free piece of software for home users. Download it, install it, update it, schedule a boot-time scan, you wil be amazed by just how much it finds & it wont slow your system by being too labour intensive like symantec.
