    How do you remove Trojan Virus? My McAfee program can't seem to getrid of it.

    I keep getting re-directed when I used search engines. I think I have
    trojan virus. Is that what the trojan virus does? Screws up searches
    on google and yahoo?

    I ran McAfee several times, and each time it detected and removed
    NTOSKRNL-HOOK (Trojan). And, my searches on google and yahoo are back
    to normal again. But, few days later, I start getting redirected to
    funny sites when I do searches again. So, I re-run the McAfee scan and
    it says it detected and removed the Trojan hook again. How can I get
    rid of it permanently?

    Is the SPYHUNTER download software on this site worth it and
    effective? : http://www.wiki-security.com/wiki/ov...egory/Trojans/

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello:

    Download, install, update and run the following freeware:

    MBAM: <http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam-download.php>
    SAS: <http://www.superantispyware.com/superantispywarefreevspro.html>

    Please update this thread with your progress. IMO, the above are the
    top two applications of their kind.

    If Malwarebytes doesn't fix it, let us know.

    If you or your AV scans can say what trojan was found, that will also
    be good to know.

    Oops - you did identify it. Did it give any other clues?

    Try the Malwarebytes and if that doesn't do it, run MBAM again in safe
    mode.

    Does Start, Run, regedit work? How about Start, Run, cmd?

    Please report back.

    I was under the impression that MBAM worked better in Normal mode while SAS
    works better in Safe Mode.

    That could very well be, I sure don't know for sure either way! I
    think I have only booted in safe mode twice in my life.

    I imagine virus can be different but one got past my McAfee and when I
    restored computer to previous date but McAfee would not work and I had
    to remove it. Rather than reinstall I thought I'd try free Avast

    > http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html


    and it found and removed the Trojan virus. Been about 6 trouble free
    weeks now. The virus had reverted my computer to about the day I had
    bought it and none of my files were there including new programs I had
    installed. It was frightening but fortunately Vista restored to a
    previous date and all was OK.


    McAfee is free from Comcast isp but for me has always been a PITA as a
    resource hog.

    Either it is a trojan or a virus. Its one or the other (unless you have a case of a
    trojan infected with a virus).

    Saying "trojan virus" ike like saying my car is is a Ford Chrysler.

    There is no such thing as a "trojan virus" despite what you may have
    heard.

    Mostly, search engine hijacks and browser hijacks are adware/foistware
    related.

    You may be getting rid of it just fine, but then re-exposing yourself to
    the foistware by visiting certain sites with your security settings to
    lenient.

    I don't know too much about that one, but I don't think they will help
    you as much as increased security will. If you really are being only
    partially cleaned by McAfee (or other antimalware), I would suggest
    MalwareBytes Antimalware (MBAM) and SuperAntiSpyware (SAS) because of
    the good recommendations I hear about them in these security related
    newsgroups.

    I agree about McAfee - I have Comcast also. Slow and a resource hog
    like you said, plus it never found a darn thing. Now it is history.

    I am up on MBAM for the moment. Never tried SAS, but might.

    I think he means it like - "the TROJAN virus!", like that is the name
    given to the virus, TROJAN. I'm sticking with "malicious software" to
    be safe.

    Good to know about the safe mode thing...

    That would be an incredibly stupid name for the professionals to use for
    a virus.

    > I'm sticking with "malicious software" to be safe.


    Malware (malicious software) is the correct umbrella term. A virus is a
    particular type of recursively self-replicating malware.

    Can't remember exactly what Avast said, but word "Trojan" was there.

    That wouldn't surprise me - but that doesn't make it correct. :o)

    A generally acceptable (but also not entirely correct) hierarchical view
    is that it is a trojan, unless it recursively self-replicates, in which
    case it is a worm, unless it attaches it's replicant to code, in which
    case it is a virus. In actuality the terms are not mutually exclusive.
    Each virally infected file for instance can be considered a trojan.
    Worms often first present themselves to the victim as a trojan as part
    of their lifecycle. Some experts view all replicating code as "virus"
    and place "worm" as a subtype of virus - trojans don't recursively
    self-replicate. So it is a trojan unless it recursively self-replicates,
    in which case it is a virus or worm (which is a type of virus). I think
    David subscribes to this view.

    If you actually are compromised with a virus (different than simply
    catching a virus within a file) the only way to be sure is a wipe and
    reinstall.
