I need help! I have been targeted by a virus called Trojan.Gatak.B. I have no way to remove it by my own as I barely know little about computer. I have asked some advice from a friend of mine, he told me I can try to install anti-virus programs to remove it. So I followed his advice to install anti-virus programs, but after I have tried some, I gave up as none of them can help me remove it completely and permanently. I don’t know why. Can somebody help?

Brief Introduction to This Trojan

Trojan.Gatak.B is an extremely vicious Trojan horse infection which can target the computers that run Windows operating systems. It is a worldwide infection as it can be spread by cyber hackers on the Internet with many ways. People can get informed about this Trojan infection by their anti-virus programs, but it doesn’t mean that those security tools can fix this problem very fast for computer users. We have found that this Trojan virus is too tricky for auto removal tools to handle as cyber criminals have designed it to corrupt the entire system including the security system once it intrudes. So, under this bad circumstance, even though users can notice that their computers have been targeted by this infection, but they will get a lot of difficulties on removing this infection from their machines.

Internet can be the biggest place for computer users to share information and programs. We can get lot of benefits from it, but it also provides a large scale of chances for hackers to perform illegal activities. This Trojan.Gatak.B can be implanted into websites that have already been controlled by cyber hackers. It is not an easy thing for users to judge which page is good or infected. So as soon as people come to the corrupted pages, this Trojan can be downloaded automatically as a cache file. In addition, cyber hackers can forge this Trojan as an optional program and bundle it with other commonly used and downloaded programs on the Internet for people to use. So, when people have the infected programs installed on their machines, this Trojan can sneak into the system at the same time.

Once this Trojan.Gatak.B virus infiltrates the target machines, it would begin to damage the system right away. To make sure it won’t be removed by anti-virus programs, this Trojan can have the ability to disable the tools and turn off the system firewall on the background with being known by computer users. Also, it can corrupt the system-related files to avoid being removed. Once the system files are damaged, the system will perform in a poor and abnormal way. Users will get many errors during the use and sometimes black screen or blue screen of death can happen often.
