The hackers who control the Trojan use delusive infection methods and different “social engineering” techniques to mislead and confuse the users about the real nature and intentions of their malware. They typically camouflage their harmful code and make it appear like common pieces of content such as links, ads, pop-ups, email attachments, messages from a friend, pictures, software update requests or popular software installers.

Sadly, Trojans don’t usually show any visible symptoms of their presence in the system.

    Hold together the Start Key and R. Type appwiz.cpl –> OK.



    You are now in the Control Panel. Look for suspicious entries. Uninstall it/them. If you see a screen like this when you click Uninstall, choose NO:

    Hold the Start Key and R –  copy + paste the following and click OK:

    notepad %windir%/system32/Drivers/etc/hosts

    Type Regedit in the windows search field and press Enter.

      HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—-Windows—CurrentVersion—Run– Random
