It is often found to access the weak system when the user is visiting some hacked web site or install some unauthorized programs from unknown or free webpages. A Trojan virus can seize any chance to invade a computer especially one that has lower security level. A Trojan is not like a malware which can be visibly seen as a program on your computer. The only way you can see it may be the antivirus detection or a strange process listed in Task Manager. It is not the thing that we can uninstall from programs and features. It is something whose files we have to delete in order to get rid of it completely.
