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.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Spyware & Trojan Virus

It might be really what it says, but chances are you have accidentally started a "fake virus scam" malware, that acts a bit like a virus, but with an added function of luring you into paying for some miraculous anti-virus, that will cure your computer of the multiple "infections" it has allegedly "discovered".
Whether or not it is a real infection, the best idea is to prepare on a clean computer (at a friend for example) a startup antivirus CD, from which you could boot your computer and run an antivirus program.

Please come back with a testimonial if helped :)

For you to remove Virus from your Laptop, you must have an Antivirus software running on your laptop. I will recommend Avira Antivirus, its know to remove most viruses. Download the free version, install it on your laptop and run a virus scan on your system with it. This will remove the virus from your system.

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.
