How to remove win32/mebroot?


Hi there,
Well this Win32/mebroot is a trojan and you need a trojan killer to remove this. you can remove this by two ways -
1. Online - means when your computer runs the operating system and you can install the trojan killer and search for the trojan.
2. Offline - in this you don't need to start the operating system of your computer, you just need the offline CD of a trojan killer that starts automitally before windows start and then you just make a search for the trojan.
Please follow the below link to get your trojan killer -

Good Luck

What is trojan horse virus


A Trojan Horse is full of as much trickery as the mythological Trojan Horse it was named after. The Trojan Horse, at first glance will appear to be useful software but will actually do damage once installed or run on your computer. Those on the receiving end of a Trojan Horse are usually tricked into opening them because they appear to be receiving legitimate software or files from a legitimate source. When a Trojan is activated on your computer, the results can vary. Some Trojans are designed to be more annoying than malicious (like changing your desktop, adding silly active desktop icons) or they can cause serious damage by deleting files and destroying information on your system. Trojans are also known to create a backdoor on your computer that gives malicious users access to your system, possibly allowing confidential or personal information to be compromised. Unlike viruses and worms, Trojans do not reproduce by infecting other files nor do they self-replicate.

Please rate the solution if helpful. Thank you

What's trojan horse .I found that name in after my scan.


The Trojan is a type of virus. You know, like the Trojan Horse legend ... the Greeks sheltered in a huge wooden horse presented as a gift to the people of the city they were trying to conquer and when the people of the city brought the horse in, the greeks killed them all. The same idea is with this Trojan virus. It hides in an suspicious program and when you run that program it starts to do some damage.

Operating System infected by Trojan Horse. My


Restart your computer, and keep pressing F8, until you get the Windows "start-up" menu -- white text over a black background.
Choose "Safe Mode", and see if you can logon.

Then, try one (or more) of the anti-virus scanners listed at:
http://www.facebook.com/security?v=app_10442206389

Or, follow the "best practises" recommended by Microsoft:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc700813.aspx
and backup your data files, reinstall Windows & your anti-virus software,
and reload your data files.

TROJAN HORSE


Trojan horse virus' can be very tricky to get rid of sometimes. AVG is one of the best out there for this but sometimes it cannot do it all. It just depends on what kind of virus it is. First of all, run a complete scan with "Spybot Search & Destroy". It is a free spyware removal tool. Make sure the dat files are up to date on all of these cleaners. The run a scan usin "AdAware". It is a free adware removal tool. Then after both of them have run, run a complete virus scan again with AVG. Most virus' out there now are in the form of spyware and adware and are downloader trojans. They download files in the background without your knowledge and really lag your computer. You will also get lots of pop ups while surfing the internet. I hope this helps. Let me know how it turns out?

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

System restores don't work too well. The virus/trojan has usually embedded itself beyond the restore, you're free to try it, however. If it doesn't work, I would suggest some anti-virus/spyware scanning software. Here are two, one for viruses/vulnerabilities/some spyware and one dedicated to spyware. Both are absolutely free. http://housecall.trendmicro.com runs from your web browser (I would suggest using Internet Explorer). http://www.download.com/3405-8022-5153545.html?part=dl-ad-aware&subj=dl&tag=top5 This is Ad-aware, it will remove the spyware on your computer. This one needs to be downloaded. If those do not work, then you have two choices: reformat the HDD (low-level format in some cases), or take it to a professional who can save your data and remove the trojan successfully. Additionally, you can try Googling the trojan by its name and you'll usually find removal instructions. Symantec and Microsoft have the most accurate methods.
