This specific Trojan virus can get through to different systems distributing among malicious web sites, links and free software. And because it can escape from many antivirus protections, computer users don’t really get how it sneaks into their computers. Unlike malware or spyware which can show up on computer screens as a program, this Trojan can only be noticed by PC users when it’s detected by antivirus and is showing in those security pop ups.
Generally, Trojan viruses (for instance Trojan Horse Downloader.generic10.asx) can come into computers bundling with other free programs or spam attachments. They don’t need permission from the PC owners to get themselves installed. So basically, when surfing online through malicious web sites and downloading files from the Internet that are from unknown resources, one can get this Trojan.Agent/Gen-MulDrop virus into his/her computer without knowing.

Experiences like insanely slow Internet and incredibly freeze programs are among the most obvious results due to this Trojan infection. If the Trojan is scanned and you’ve hit delete, it can still pop up again soon with another form or name. It seems endless to have antivirus deleted this Trojan virus.
