Antivirus Detects Trojan:Win32/Medfos.gen!D –How to Remove It?
Recently, a new Trojan threat Trojan:Win32/Medfos.gen!D has become quite common. The Trojan is detected by some antivirus programs. And the cases all seem late after the alert is given out by the antivirus. That Trojan is able to disguise itself under some normal processes and thus it can escape from the detection of antivirus soft ware. It is usually bundled with some free or unsafe packages. Sometimes the original programs are good but the package you download is not the official one but some uploaded by cyber criminals who put the process of the Trojan inside the package and make viruses spread when computer users download and install the soft ware online. For example, when you install a normal soft ware or program, you can see many files installed in the process of the installation. The files of the Trojan will break into your computer system along with the installation.
The antivirus will not detect the installation of a normal program or soft ware thus the virus will not be detected at first. But later on, when it begins to infect your system files or modify other files of good programs the antivirus can realize that. But it is not good to find it out in that late time. Trojan:Win32/Medfos.gen!D may have spread all over your hard drives by making it set to the system registry entries. If you cannot find out the right documents of the virus and delete them all from both the registry and the system files the Trojan will very likely to come back again after your efforts to remove it. Your computer can give out signals before the antivirus send you the alert of infections. You may feel the speed of the computer is abnormal and some of your programs will not react properly.
