Trojan.Win32 Removal Instructions (updated)

Though the Internet is a great necessity nowadays, it has gradually become the main playground for mischief. Cyber criminals have placed their wicked creations everywhere, lying in hide for the most convenient moment to attack a vulnerable computer. There are countless security threats and working online seems to be a hazardous task, but some of the viruses can be avoided or even eradicated relatively easy from a computer in case they manage to enter it. One of these viruses is the Trojan.Win32 or also known as Trojan.Win32.agent.

Trojan.Win32 targets Windows users only. It mainly aims at stealing personal information, and on the way of obtaining it, it sometimes even manages to crash the corrupted system completely. Unfortunately, this malware is capable of hiding itself extremely well, and this is its trump-card since a lot of time may pass before the victim notices the infection.

Trojan win32 uses a variety of strategies in order to creep into a PC. The main two, however, are fishy websites and strange pop-ups. Sometimes it might be difficult to differentiate between a legitimate website and a corrupted one, because hackers become more and more crafty every day and they do not invent a single website to hide a particular virus. Trojan.Win32 is laid in a number of seemingly unsuspicious websites, therefor, you should be extremely cautious when following links, especially if they come attached in an e-mail (even one from a friend) and as part of pop-ups. Exactly strange pop-ups are the second, and most common, method for transmitting the Trojan.Win32 infection. These pop-ups appear suddenly, while you are browsing the Internet, and their text may be of any nature as long as they seem luring enough to make users click on them. However, even if they are warning about a potential threat to your computer safety, you should not click on them, because this is the way to trigger the Trojan.Win32 virus.

The Trojan.Win32 installs itself without the victim’s permission or knowledge and once inside, it immediately starts threatening the attacked computer system’s security by downloading or uploading files, logging keystrokes, watching the user’s screen. In some cases, it can also totally crash the system before the user is even aware that there is an intruder in their PC.

Though removing Trojan.Win32 is not that complicated and almost all legitimate anti-virus programs can remove it, it is discovering you have been infected that is tough. The main symptoms of a Trojan win32 infection are:

  • constant pop-ups;
  • changed default homepage;
  • excessively slow Internet connection;
  • disabled firewall (provided that it has been turned on prior the infection);
  • crashes of the system.

In case you notice some of these signs as part of your PC’s behaviour, immediately run a full scan of your system with a genuine anti-virus application or a registry cleaner. What should be noted here is that it is very important to act right on time in order to prevent Trojan.Win32 from stealing your private data.
