Well, What's a backdoor trojan? If i restarted or restored the pc


A backdoor trojan is a bad. They are a sort of virus with the capability of sending information back to the controller of it. It can be downloaded and can turn on without you knowing it and then it will follow whatever instructions it is given. The information it can send out is worse than any damage it does to your system. Passwords, bank info, credit card numbers. It can even email your contacts using your account.

System restore does record and copy these, and you need to turn system restore off during your scan and removal process. System restore does not allow virus software to remove these files.

First, update your virus program and then turn off your internet connection. Then turn off system restore by going to your control panel>System>and then click on the System restore tab, usually in the back. Close those windows and and start your virus scans. Follow the instructions after it locates the virus. If you have the option of deleting the virus, do that rather than put it in quarantine.

Since you have a program running that you don't even know about, it can certainly put a drag on your system and slow things down. Your Windows OS is so old, I can't believe it is still running. Congrats, everyone I know had a fatal crash by this time. If you need further help, please leave a comment. Thanks for your question.

Help i got trojans virus thats stopping my


If you do not have a virus program you will have to get one. Either that if you know the file that was infected try deleting that file. But virus's spread, so your best bet would be to get a virus removal program right away. When you start your computer in safe mode, make sure you choose the "with networking" capability and try to get avast

It is free to use and just install and scan.
If you cannot access the internet you may want to try going to the store to buy an antivirus program. I recommend Mcafee Security Center.

How do i do a factory system restore on an emachine?


Hi there.
Emachines usually gives you restore disk to restore it to factory setting (out-of-the box). see if you can find that disk if not you can contact Emachines and get it from them. it should not be too expensive just shipping could be part of expense. i would say about $25. i would call emachines and get it from them

From Emachines' website.

I have an hp laptop which has a trojan virus and will no alow me to do anything. Do i have to pess alt F10 to start reboot as i do on my sons acer


hopefully you have an anti virus/spyware programme installed, if so keep pressing F8 on boot up to get you into safe mode, this will not allow the trojan to run.

When you get the list on screen choose safe mode, then when windows starts, choose the administrator account, go straight to my computer>properties>system restore tab, and turn off system restore.

Run your anti virus programme and then when the trojan is found and then reboot pc, then turn system restore back on.

There is trojan horse virus in my laptop. i ve a symantec norton 2004 antivirus. everytime i update my antivirus, there's some process happening n it comes again unable to hell the virus.... it got...


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
