Trojan.gen.2 is an umbrella name for different computer infections which may target your operating Windows system. A Trojan is a clandestine piece of malware which can utilize deceptive tricks to enter your personal computer. For example, a Trojan can hide under fake video codecs, system updates, PDF converters, browser plugins or spam email attachments. The threat could also be bundled with freeware and get installed by already existing computer infections. Overall, there is no doubt that the threat will enter your PC only if it is not protected by authentic and reliable spyware detection/removal software. According to our malware researchers, Trojan infections are highly clandestine and may enter and run within the system without your knowledge. We are here to help you detect and delete Trojan.gen.2 from the operating Windows system.
It has been discovered that Trojan.gen.2 is supported by over 160 million files which may form hundreds and thousands of different computer infections. For example, TrojanDownloader:Win32/Agent.BQ, Vundo, Zbot Trojan, Trojan.Katusha or Trojan.Alureon could all utilize the malicious files which are linked to the vicious Trojan.gen.2. Needless to say, the devious files linked to the infection are highly dangerous and require immediate removal. If the components use random letter/number combinations for a name, it is not difficult to locate and delete them. Nonetheless, in other cases the files could be cloaked, which means that they could steal the names of authentic components or could even corrupt authentic files to make you believe that there are no malignant elements that you should remove. Some of the most frequently discovered cloaked elements include svchost.exe, system.exe, winlogon.exe or iexplore.exe. These are the files which you use on a regular basis and whose existence within the Task Manager will not raise any questions.
Malicious Trojan.gen.2 components can be used for a variety of different processes. Some of these files have polymorphic capabilities and act as rootkits to hide from detection and removal. Nonetheless, if you do not remove these components from the system, you could fall victim to extremely vicious scams. The dangerous files could remove access to Windows utilities (e.g. Task Manager, Windows Security Center, Firewall), add or delete system processes, disable security updates, circumvent outdated security software, connect your PC to remote servers and employ it for spyware distribution. It is not rare for Trojans to collect passwords and usernames so that schemers could hijack your online banking, email, virtual chat accounts. All of this may lead to financial loss and involvement in criminal activity.
Most Trojans are invisible; however, they may cause slower computer’s performance and Internet connection issues. You may also discover that some of the utilities within the system are inoperative. If you have discovered any changes, no matter how small they might be, you should not risk the integrity of your Windows system or the security of your virtual identity. If you have the slightest doubt – install an authentic spyware scanner to examine the computer. SpyHunter offers a free-of-charge scanner which will detect all existing threats. If any malware is found – delete it without further delay before cyber criminals manage to infiltrate more threats. If your PC is clean we suggest that you install authentic spyware detection and removal software to maintain reliable protection.
