Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

2 Answers

I got a virus (I believe it was a trojan horse), I removed it my self, but now my computer is slow, and I can only use Opera as an internet browser (I'm using it right now). I was wondering how to reboot my Acer Aspire one netbook to factory settings, I was planning on doing that later.

Without a proper antivirus, your computer remains vulnerable to various malware, spyware, spam, rootkits, Trojan horses, and other viruses. Keyloggers and rootkits attack your PC and start destroying and corrupting the Windows registries. A corrupt Windows registry disturbs and slows down the processing of your computer. Hence, you suffer slow speed and hanging problems while working on the computer.

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.

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?
