Hello there.

Trojan problems can be a pain, luckily you can try an online web based scanner that should hopefully identify and remove the majority of the infections found.

I would recommend installing and scanning inside Firefox if possible, but Internet Explorer works too.
Click here and click "Scan Now. It's Free!" ten "scan now". Once it loads select My Computer and it will scan the entire computer.

This may take some time but once it completes it will prompt you to remove any infections found. If you are unsure please upload the picture of the final screen, to show us.

ps: you can download Firefox from here

Hope this helps.

How do I clear a trojan hourse virus from my mac computer?


Is it actually your computer/software telling you this or is it just an ad on the page you opened? Sometimes these websites are set up to scare a person. Which AV software are you using? And which OS do you have on your MAC?

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 -

Runtime error 216 at 00Cd358


Run time error 216 can cause permanent damage to your operating system if left unrepairable.

Symptoms of Run-time Error 216 This Trojan invades the registry and modifies command files, sometimes with unpredictable results. Some of the common symptoms include:
  • Inability to open some programs such as internet explorer
  • Random CD/DVD drives opening and closing
  • Pop up dialogue boxes appearing randomly
  • Appearance and disappearance of important files
  • Extremely slow downloads
First
  1. Boot to safe mode by pressing the F8 key at start up
  2. Once the system has booted run a good anti virus program to eliminate the Trojan

You will need to also use a good registry cleaner to fix all of the entries that the Trojan modified. Once all that is done, the error should disappear for good.
summary Any time you have a virus, Trojan or other form of malware that causes a noticeable error in system behavior or performance, you should run a manual anti-virus and spy ware scan. Once that is complete, you should run a good registry cleaner to remove all of the damage and left over junk entries these programs can leave behind after they are dead.

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:

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.
