Getting Rid of a Trojan?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

Sorry if this is the wrong section i just thought as it said security then it would be related!

I downloaded a file a while ago and when i clicked the .exe it disappeared without doing anything, I thought this was suspicious so re downloaded it and scanned it with AVG. IT said its a trojan virus.

I have since scanned with spyware and avg and removed all they found, how ever they didnt bring up anything serious.

Can i assume im ok now? or is there anything else i can do short of a reformat?

Cheers guys!

always on the side side= dban makes SURE its gone
or play the ok side remove hdd(if its not a raid array)
and scan with anti virus and maywarebytes to be sure its gone
those are the two best options
google boot sector virus...in a case like that reformatting/fresh install does nothing

ok nvm then back up your files reinstall windows install drivers then plug in your network cable then install mse or avg (do not stop for ocn facebook or email) go straight to one of those then install it then do the rest of your installs then be much more careful next time... search google for reviews of a piece of software.. and after you download something anything music movies pron doesnt matter scan it before you run it

now youve done it..
lol macs get viruses too in fact the only reasons mac didnt have a s many virus for them was becausse the platform was so small the larger the platform gets the more virus are written
even more fact is that many mac virus keep quiet and do nothing to make the user suspicious.. not even mac is invisible to hackers..
you might wanna get antivir for it too
and its just common sense...its not that hard i haven't had a virus on any of my main rigs for years

euhm... was it some cracked software??? If so, and it was the keygen or so, it is "normal" to say it is a troyan

They call it a False Positive

If it wasn't cracked software, then try hitmanpro (it's from the Netherlands, but it might setup in english...) after the scan you can use a ONE time trial/activation of 30 days

Also you can borrow somebody's Norton CD and boot from it, it will scan also
