This page aims to help you remove Belonard Trojan Horse. Our removal instructions work for every version of Windows.

It is important to be observant and aware of the current condition of your computer system as there are many malicious software threats out there that are particularly good at staying hidden once inside a given machine and showing as few infection symptoms as possible. Case in point, the recently reported malicious program named Belonard is a good example of a malware program that could be especially difficult to detect even with a reliable antivirus program at the user’s disposal. This is because Belonard is a Trojan Horse representative – it is a silent and very harmful threat that doesn’t typically reveal its presence in the machine in any way, at least not until it is already too late to do anything about its presence in the computer. However, seeing as how you are on this page, we assume that you at the very least have some suspicion that this insidious malware may have infiltrated your machine’s system. In this case, you are already a bit closer to solving the Belonard-related issue as most users don’t even get to find out about the infection on time.

Now, if you really think that Belonard Trojan may currently be messing with the computer’s system, you must not waste any time – read the rest of this article and take a careful look at the instructions we have inserted below. They will help you with the detection and the elimination of the harmful Trojan but you must really make sure to follow them meticulously, without omitting anything. It is also advisable to use the added help of the removal program you will find linked below as it may not always be enough to use the manual steps. Also, should you face any difficulties during the removal process, do not hesitate to contact us through the comments section.

Some things you must be aware of when talking about Trojans

One major problem related to this particular malware family is the overall versatility of the abilities of most Trojan Horse representatives. Belonard is no exception – it may be able to steal data from your machine and gain access to your online accounts as well as give the hackers behind it unauthorized access to your computer system. Once such access is established, there is no telling what may follow. Sometimes, other malicious programs may also enter your computer with the help of infections like Belonard. Some popular examples you’ve probably already heard of are Spyware, Rootkits and, of course, the infamous Ransomware cryptoviruses. Unfortunately, since this particular Trojan is new and it is still not fully researched, we do not know its exact goal once it attacks a given computer. In fact, its goals may differ in each separate case. Regardless of that, one thing is certain and that is the fact you really cannot allow this nefarious piece of code to stay in your computer and operate undisturbed. Use our guide and maybe the security tool we’ve linked there and be sure to rid your machine of the insidious Trojan Horse.

Once inside, press CTRL and F together and type the virus’s Name. Right click and delete any entries you find with a similar name. If they don’t show up this way, go manually to these directories and delete/uninstall them:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—-Windows—CurrentVersion—Run– Random
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—Internet Explorer—-Main—- Random
