Trojan viruses are known to cause all kinds of PC troubles, from lost Internet connection to unbootable Windows. Many computer users turn to PC technicians to have their problems solved. But there’s a good chance you can get rid of infections and repair the system if you know what free trojan virus removers exist out there.
Recently BitDefender, a world-renowned antivirus software maker from Romania, made a report based on its statistics of virus activity. According to the data, 9 out of 10 most active malware infections are Trojan viruses and their mutations.
Theres no surprise in it for me; Trojans are nearly a most aggressive type of malware that ever hit the Web in the last years. Those who have been in IT industry for a long time remember that first computer viruses were created mostly for fun just to make sure wow, this works! Nowadays the reasons why Trojans are so widespread and so hard to remove are different: making money and taking control over infected computers.
Its hard to delete Trojan virus because of three main reasons:
This is one of the reasons why tools developed by volunteer programmers and small software companies have gained so much appraisal from owners of infected computers. On of such tools is called SmitFraudFix and is meant to remove a number of fake security applications, installed with the help of sneaky Trojans. For some of the most nastiest pests there are even more targeted programs developed, i.e. for Vundo and Zlob malware programs that guilty of millions infected computers.
A software company a-squared also joined the movement of free Trojan removers by releasing a rogueremover. Besides, the company created a command-line scanner to help system administrators and advanced PC users in winning the Trojan war. Though focused on rogue security software, it targets a number of threats. Malwarebytes offers its free anti-malware, and so does SUPERAntiSpyware.
Online scanner is another common means to remove Trojan virus for free. Most major antivirus companies offer web services, and some provide integrated scans with engines from several manufacturers.
However, the availability of free tools that have gained reputation and popularity thanks to their elaborated algorithms used to remove Trojan virus infections doesnt mean its easy to clean out a contaminated system. This type of malware is pretty tough to get rid of, and often a series of scans is required to erase the malicious files and registry entries left by Trojans.
