Why Didn’t My Anti-virus Program Remove This Trojan Horse Virus?

This will be the first question you want to ask if you get this Trojan virus infection. As what you can see, Adware Generic5.PFR Virus will give itself a name just like it’s one important file of Windows operating system. It just takes advantage of the vulnerabilities of the operating system and your anti-virus so that it can escape from scanning, much less than killing it. When this rootkit disguises as an important file of Windows operating system, Windows Fire Wall or your anti-virus program will take it for a safe file and won’t kill it. Even if your anti-virus can distinguish it as a virus, the virus can make use of the vulnerabilities of your anti-virus so that it can’t be removed. No perfect anti-virus can remove all smart viruses.
