My computer works quite slow so I run Norton to run a full scan on it and see if I have something to delete to get it run better. And without any doubts, it gives me an alert that my computer is in infection mode which is caused by a Trojan virus called Trojan.Gen.3. I’ve tried to remove this virus but it seems difficult to delete its files in system. I cannot find the exact files of the virus and after I use some tools to do that for me the virus comes back after each restart. How can I remove it completely?
Description on Trojan.Gen.3
Trojan.Gen.3 invades computers while it is spreading on the internet. It hides itself behind some links or words and pictures that can be clicked on and will redirect you to some pages. When you click on those nothing seems to happen as you don’t see any clues that anything is downloaded to your computer. All the tricks are done in backdoor. Besides that, this Trojan virus can also infect computers along with the installation of some programs. It is packaged to the software and releases when you install the software it can get installed automatically. Despite the secret ways it uses to get into victims’ computer, this Trojan virus also makes damages in invisible ways once it infects the system.
Your computer system is made more and more vulnerable while you cannot realize that. Since it is updated along with time by remote online cyber criminals it is able to get out from the scan of an antivirus program and that is why you may get infected while you have the protection by antiviruses. Trojan.Gen.3 will make duplications of itself when it is in your system files and that will occupy large amount of system resources and your computer will perform quite abnormally. For example, your computer takes longer time to starts up than it usually does, and many programs installed on it keep giving you no responding or fail to run constantly. All things seem to be abnormal on the infected computer. And you will have to deal with a big problem of revealing your personal information. Because the virus can collect your histories files you use the computer and analyze them to get your privacy and send them to remote hackers. They will take use of it to earn illegal money.
