What is the best antivirus for the Trojan Virus?

by on October 3, 2012

I have AVG Antivirus, but I found that the virus seems to keep copying itself every time I rescan the computer for more viruses. I need to find an Antivirus that is free and that can solve the problem. Can anyone help?

Ther are no free antivirus programs out there. If you want one that works, you need to pay for it.

Hi,

there is no one trojan virus, that is just a generic name for a type of virus.

Try avast:

and update it:

or alternatively, scan with this free online scanner:

or this one:

good luck!

Sounds like it’s replicating at start up. You can probably go to System configuratin utilites (type MSCONFIG in your run box)…find the trojan under “startup items” and remove the check.

Or the folder may be hidden and is replicating to the end of a file already in your programs. (You can probably “open hidden files” and run the scan again to kill it.

Here is a good way to stop this problem. Go online and install a free download of “Stinger” …save it to your desktop, open all hidden files and reboot your computer in Safe Mode.

From Safe Mode, go ahead and run “Stinger” ( It wouldn’t hurt to do a MSCONFIG and check your start up files also.

Let stinger run, then come back and run your scan also from safe mode. This should allow for a nice deep cleaning.

Hope this helps.

AVG is just fine but if you thinking about a new antivirus program get Kaspersky.The best way to remove viruses is in safe mode.
The computer there uses only the basic processes to run the windows.To go to safe mode turn on your PC and start pressing F8.When a screen a black screen appears choose safe mode.
Turn on your scan there and i assure you AVG will do the job

Hope this helps and good luck

I have Kaspersky Internet Security 6.0.303
It really helps against most viruses. It is free for one month.

You can download it from:
