Trojans Are here!!!!!!!!!!!

Post by MINDROP on Tue 26 Apr - 11:15:33

Hey guys, my comp crashed Sunday because of a Trojan. Watch yourself out there. Be careful where you go, etc. These things are a pain. I was able to recover my files, and still am in the process of doing that. Then I have to wipe my harddrive and completely restart. Its a pain, so watch out.

I know this is locked, but, what is a trojan? Assuming were not talking about the warriors...

Hmmm, this should not be locked.

A trojan is a type of computer virus that basically shuts down your comp and is a pain to remove. Best way is to pull your files and completely wipe the computer.

Yep, trojans and some malware are what got my old PC. Once a hard drive is infected it's very difficult to keep it clean and my old PC was never the same after it got infected the first time. My tech guy said that you never really get all the currupt junk out of the system so in a way it causes permanent damage.
When I bought this new PC I bought Kaspersky labs full internet protection and the day before the freeware that came with the PC wore out (Norton internet protection) I loaded the Kaspersky labs software. Besides that I also downloaded Malware Bytes and I also bought and installed System Mechanic and loaded on the new PC. So far it's kept my new system clean.

I had System Mechanic on my old PC and when it got nailed anyway the trojan attacked system mechanic and disabled it. I couldn't make it scan and fix problems and I couldn't even reload the software. It basically did the same thing to Malware bytes but I had let my subscription to Kaspersky run out a long time back.

It sucks to have that happen to a PC!

Yeah, they target your antivirus, malware, etc. first. They disable them permanently. Mine is doing fine thankfully.

That's why, before running any program, I upload it to Virustotal, to make sure it doesn't have any viruses.

Thats a good idea. Ive never thought about doing that, I just check to see if its widely used and recommended. If not, I get a little suspicious.

Come on over to my igloo after the hockey game, and we can fry some flapjacks and drink maple syrup while watching the Celine Dion concert, eh?
