i have anti virus software already, but i have a trojan virus... how do i remove it myself?
i wish to find a way to do this for free if possible...
Depending on which anti-virus software you have I would recommend running a full system scan and then trying to quarantine the virus and get rid of it.
If your machine is already infected then you may have to reformate your hardrive.
I would advise you to use some popular antivirus software's like Avast or AVG. Plus point is free version is also available of these softwares. After installing update it and do a complete system scan. All the best.
What's the name of your AV software? As suggested, use its scanner first. If it's damaged by malware, then we could try something else.
It depends on how bad it is, but most viruses can be removed.
You could try downloading an anti virus which inst free, but then using the 30 day trial to get rid of the one you have, then uninstall the anti virus.
I would recommend either
http://www.zonealarm.com - The security Suite
http://www.eset.com/ - NOD32 or Suite.
Hope this helps.
