    What is the next step if I found a Trojan horse on Sony Windows laptop?

    I found a Trojan horse on my Sony Windows laptop while copying a file from pen drive to my system. I have installed an AVG antivirus on my system. What can I do next to get rid of this virus from my system?

    Dear guest,

    1)AVG antivirus software will either move the file to quarantine so that it can check it for virus the next time you are connected to internet, or it will just scan and indicate you that a virus is present...

    2)You can click on the clean button or scan and clean button. This will permanently delete the affected file.

    3)After doing this kindly scan your entire pc before restarting it... Just to make sure that the virus has not made its way through to the boot log of your system..

    4) Once your updated anti virus approves that there is no more virus left just restart your pc....

    5) your pc will be virus free..
    Good luck.

    Hi,

    If you are so sure of the presence of the "Trojan",

    1. you should have stopped copying the file from the pen drive.
    2. why your installed antivirus failed to scan and halt the virus infected file to be installed?

    Anyway click open the AVG, and click on "scan and clean" or something like that. Use exhaustive scan insted of a quick scan. the antivirus if not infected itself should scan , clean or quarentine the infected files. Do that the earliest.

    Thanks.

    Hello,
    Trojan Horse viruses work only when you connected to internet,they download other their files from internet and slowly hangs your computer.
    If you have an anti virus like AVG it will detect it and give you main 3 options:
    1. Delete the Trojan horse
    2. Quarantine
    3. Ignore

    Now if you select the delete option, it delete the virus or the file contain it, this option is best taken on the safe site. Sometimes the games we have with crack or keygen, the antivirus also show these cracks as a virus, so you can choose quarantine option to check whether it is really a virus or not. But in my knowledge i do not see any crack as a Trojan horse. As i say earlier Trojan horse viruses updated through internet, so it will be best to delete such files as they can be risky for your system.

    Hi,

    Its good that you scan your laptop on a periodic basis.
    This is very important to ensure the proper functioning of the laptop.
    Once you scan the laptop,you can remove all the unhealed infections.
    There is a button that has "Remove Unhealed Infections" written on it.
    Just click that button to remove all the trojans from your laptop!

    Bye!

    trojans can get onto your computer in a number of ways, including from a web browser, via e-mail, or in a bundle with other software downloaded from the Internet.

    Unlike viruses or worms, trojans do not replicate themselves but they can be just as destructive. On the surface, trojans appear benign and harmless, but once the infected code is run, trojans kick in and perform malicious functions to harm the computer system without the user's knowledge

    The Softwares to get rid off Trojon Virus are :-
