The Trojan horse malware category
As you probably already know, this is a type of software viruses that are known for their stealth and ability to silently sneak inside most computer systems while showing almost no visible symptoms. Most Trojan threats rely on some kind of disguise which is supposed to lure the user and trick them into interacting with the virus in some way. The disguise could be anything: an e-mail attachment, a fake or misleading advert, a spam post in some social media platform, a pirated program download, etc. The possibilities are endless, which is why you ought to be really observant and cautious while browsing the Internet.
Do not visit sites with sketchy contents and do not download stuff you can’t be sure is safe. Use your common sense and keep away from any online content that looks questionable, shady or simply suspicious. As we already said, the infection is likely to occur silently which means you will likely not even realize that a Trojan virus has infiltrated your machine. Trojans are masters of disguise and stealth operations and will likely not give away their presence during the time they reside inside the infected machine.
Sometimes there might be some indications of the virus attack – unusual system behavior such as high RAM or CPU use, sudden crashes and freezes, unusual errors and so on but this is something that’s situational and you cannot solely rely on such symptoms to detect a Trojan. That’s why it’s a good idea to have your machine equipped with reliable and strong security software. Make sure you get some form of system protection in case you don’t already have such as this might be your best shot at detecting potential Trojan malware attacks.

Many of the processes that a Trojan horse-like Win.Virus.Triusor-9950253-0 may run are typically hidden from the victim’s sight. Therefore, to deal with such an infection, you need to be very observant and to carefully research any process that looks suspicious. To view all the processes that are running on your system, press CTRL + SHIFT + ESC together. This will open the Windows Task Manager.
In it, click Processes and filter the processes in the list by CPU and Memory consumption in order to be able to isolate processes that consume an unusual amount of resources or have a random name.
The moment you spot something suspicious, right-click on it and Open File Location.
Next, use the powerful scanner below to check the files related to that process for malware:Shortcode
If one or more of the files that you scan get recognized as a threat, end the process and delete them from the computer.
Then, check again for other suspicious-looking processes and check their files too. When you are sure that there are no dangerous processes running in the Task Manager, and everything dangerous has been stopped, close the window.
Many Trojans are known to add dangerous startup items to the systmem without the victim’s knowledge. The role of these items is to run malicious processes as soon as the computer starts. Therefore, in this step, you need to open System Configuration (from the Start menu) and carefully check the Startup tab for entries that look suspicious:
If you spot an entry that has “Unknown” Manufacturer or an odd name, or an entry that you cannot link to any of the legitimate programs that you have on your computer, it is best to disable it by removing its checkmark.
- Remember this step – if you have reason to believe a bigger threat (like ransomware) is on your PC, check everything here.
An infection like Win.Virus.Triusor-9950253-0 may help hackers access your computer secretly. Therefore, if you have a suspicion that your machine has been hacked, it is a good idea to check the Hosts file for unauthorized malicious changes.
For that, go to the Start menu search bar and copy the line below in it:
Then, press Enter from the keyboard and check for any questionable-looking IP addresses under Localhost:
If you find some Virus Creator IPs in your Hosts file, don’t rush to delete them. Instead, write to us in the comments with a copy of these IPs so we can take a look at them and advise you on what to do.
Last, but not least, you need to check your registry for dangerous files and folders that Win.Virus.Triusor-9950253-0 might have added there for persistence.
The easiest way to do that is by starting the Registry Editor (Type Regedit in the Start menu search field and press Enter) and writing the name of the Trojan in a Find window (CTRL and F).
If anything appears in the results of the search, it most likely is related to Win.Virus.Triusor-9950253-0 and needs to be carefully deleted.
Next, go manually to these directories:
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—–Random Directory.
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—-Windows—CurrentVersion—Run– Random
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—Internet Explorer—-Main—- Random
Check each of them for suspicious-looking entries that could be related to Win.Virus.Triusor-9950253-0 and delete those that you are sure are part of the infection.
Attention! If you can’t discern which files and folders need to be deleted from the registry, please use a professional removal tool (like the one recommended on this page) to clean your system. Manual deletions and changes in the registry may cause system corruption if performed by inexperienced users. Therefore, it is best to avoid involuntary damage to your PC by relying on trusted security software.
