A virus is program that has malicious content in it and replicates itself and a Trojan horse is program that will only work if the user executes it. Sometimes, a Trojan horse covers itself as a fake folder while in fact, it's an .exe file. The good thing about Trojan horse is that it is not that hard to get rid of them. But the bad thing about Trojan horse is that it is a little bit difficult to find them. Although, it does not corrupt files or delete data stored on your hard disk until you execute it.Once executed, it will allow the hackers to indentify your credit card number, social security number, bank account details or some other private information. You can delete or remove the hidden Trojan horse with the help of antivirus software. Either, you can also try the manual process to delete it or you can follow these steps: STEP 1 Open the System Information Utility (msinfo32.exe). You can find the System Information Utility by typing “msinfo32.exe” in ‘Run’. This program lists all the processes running on any Windows system, even those processes that are hidden from the task list. Now open your virus scanner and run the executable or .dll through it. STEP 2 Open your antivirus software and run a virus scan. If you don't have a antivirus software installed, download AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5. And run a scan using it. After the scanning process is completed, delete the value that was detected from the registry (before doing this step, take a backup of the registry files): A) Click ‘Start’ > ‘Run’. B) Type "regedit". C) Click "OK". D) Go to the subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunServices HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServices E) Now delete any value from the right pane that was detected during the scan process. F) Exit the Registry Editor.
