Default Re: I have a virus (trojan)

Yes, Trojan viruses are the worst viruses out there. They hide in the files that yout anti-virus program doesn't scan.

Let me tell you a little story, and why its called the Trojan Horse virus.
Long long ago, in the medieval times there was a war. The other side would not give up, and kept fighting, one day the opponents looked out there castle and saw a big wooden horse( called a trojan), so they thought it was the other sides sign of surrender. They rolled the huge heavy horse into there castle.

At night, the whole army came out of the big horse, they were hiding in there. And they won the battle. That is why that virus is called the Trojan Horse virus!

If you have a trojan horse, you are doomed, because now they know your password, and they will send it to people who pay so they can hack your account. Call Microsoft ASAP! Before it is too late! P.S. Norton 360 shuts down e-mails that have been and you need help from a tech to get it fixed. But after that it is fine.

Good Luck!

Don't need to know who, but how did it happen? Your answer would be a GREAT experience for others to learn from. Did the person send you something in an email that you downloaded and then installed?

A GREAT piece of advice here: If you download something NEVER install it right away: ALWAYS scan it with your AV software AND anti-spyware program FIRST.

Did you report the person you got the virus from to the admins here so they could have them removed from this forum. Hey, we DON'T need people like that here. There's A LOT of malicious people out there just wanting to destroy folks. Don't let 'em!

Report the person if you can remember who they are.

PLEASE for us lovers,

Ellen

Default Re: I have a virus (trojan)

I just had that problem too. You could try to install a protection prgram to help get rid of the viruses. It will cost some money, but most give out a free trial for somewhere around 90 days. I hope this works!!

the best thing you can do is have someone that fixes computers look at it. i recently let a friend us my computer to check her email. she downloaded a very bad malware on mine. i work for a college and get free software. they techs gave me a disk to run to get rid of it. after i did this i lost my windows. i lost everything that i had saved on my computer. i ended up taking it to a guy that fixes them. should of did that in the first place. would of saved me time and frustration. believe me i was ready to throw the thing out the window.

Aso i cannot get online so we dont spread it
OK,take it too a computer repair shop,and get it too be cleaned out. When their done cleaning it out (Usually 2 weeks because of other orders),you get it back,and it's like a new computer,and took away any virus you had on it. Hope I helped!

I would reccomend those for sure, but if those fail -
Backup everything you want to save, and try a system restore, or redo your OS.
These are suggestions from exp. and to keep it out of a PC shop

Sorry, to disapprove. But this isn't necessarily true.
Those are called tracking bots, not all viruses record key strokes.
Dont freak, just take baby steps and clear your cookies, try not to log into bank accounts until you clean out your pc.

To get rid of it, get StopZilla. STOPzilla Anti-Spyware Afterwords, you might want to consider getting a security program. We have McAfee and it works great
