    Trojan has a variety. Type in the specific name and post in google to find the right tool for deleting it. if nothing works out then I will tell you how to reinstall your operating system. this is the absolute and 100% guaranteed solution for getting rid of virus issues. Moreover if your are connected to internet you will always be threatened by different types of viruses and spywares.

    AVG has many free anrivirus virus packs. But , many antivirus packages at the first time of scan will show that it has detected a virus from computer. Most times it is a false thing  that the program itself has installed and it will remove it y informing us and this way we will believe that the program is a good one.

    If you can't get rid of it, you will probably have clean your pc out, and start afresh with many files infected being wiped. I had a similar virus on mine, and had to have it wiped completely.

    Is it the one that mimics Windows security center and pops up a window every minute or so saying you have a virus?
    These ones can be very difficult to clean but it can be done. First go download a program called Malwarebytes. The logo for it is red/burgundy square with white M and a white border. I mention this because there is another trojan out there that has a similar name.  the file should be mbam-setup.exe This is the only one I have come across that removes ALL the registry entries, hidden files, and re-propagated files.
    If that still doesn't remove it you can try to manually remove it. Download "Process Explorer" Search Microsoft for it or do a search for sysinternals on Microsoft's site.

    unzip and run it no install needed. Then with process explorer running kill the suspected process using process explorer. Look for process that have no name or sometimes the name starts with a blank space. Don't worry this does not delete any files, just end the process from running. Do this one at a time methodically with each suspect process. If after a few seconds to about 30 secs,if the process starts back up or a new one starts with a different name that could be the culprit. write down the name and location of the file in question. Sometimes you have have to do a search to try and find it.

    Then reboot into safe DOS mode, locate the suspect file and rename the file extension, I just rename it by adding a .123 after there extension. Reboot and if the nag screens and such stop then go ahead and delete the file after you are sure it is the right one. Then rescan your system with malwarebytes and whatever other AV program you use. Be sure to do a FULL scan and scan inside any compresssed files.
    Often you will also have to delete all the saved restore points as well. Search the OS help for instructions on how to do that.

    I have had to do this three different times, once on my system and twice for my brother. It was a persistent trojan that would re-propagate itself with a new name each time I would kill the process and it also disables any AV software, regedit, and would not allow you to download or browse to any where but their site.
    Time consuming and does require a bit of knowledge and familiarity with your system, but it was still easier than wiping and re-installing.

    It's a good idea to put these and any other removal tools on a flash drive in case your browser has been hijacked.

    hey the best solution to get rid of the TROJANS is to scan your PC with AVIRA ANTIVIRUS 2009...its a free antivirus..i have been using it from past 1 & half years or so & must say that it is very RELIABLE!!!!!!

    You should try and use Norton Anti-virus, and that too if you can get the paid one it will help you a lot. I think that this may be a little expensive but the best option for anti-viruses.

    If you are using Windows Vista/XP, the best thing you should do is to check if you have a restore point and just restore your system. Otherwise, just download a free trial of ESET NOD32. If possible get a compressed version before downloading. Then uncompress and install it. You will have your PC clean.

      Won't work to restore from a previous restore point. I've seen different threats that hide themselves in the restore points,that is why I would remove all the restore points when cleaning manualy. The fake antivirus trojan variant I have seen will copy itself to different restore point files at reboot or if the file process is terminated.
      I use Norton then follow up with Malwarebytes. If that doesn't work then I do it manually if possible.

    My computer was affected with a rogue virus.  I could not visit any websites. I used my built in virus remover the window defender and I did not know it was on my computer.  It did help alot.

      A trojan isn't a virus. Anti virus won't necessarily remove it.
      Anti spyware is what you need.

      Malware Bytes Antimalware, Super Anti Spyware or G Data.

      Instal a good internet security suite like G Data's and you'll have a lot less problems.

      Avast is the best free anti virus program out there. I, too had the trojan horse virus and Avast got rid of it rather quickly.

      combofix has gotten rid of things none of the mentioned programs could get.

      Actually, the best thing is to run as many of these different programs that you can download. They all have their strengths and their weaknesses
