How To Remove Trojan Virus Or How I Finally Got Rid Of Trojans

Two weeks ago strange things started to happen on my PC. The system was running extremely slow and every time I opened my browser pop-ups for online casinos and pc games came up.
Then, Firefox quit working. The Internet Explorer was working, but it was extremely slow and my homepage changed with every start. And hundreds of pop ups came out of nowhere.
Fortunately my antivirus program was still working. But it couldn’t detect any worms, Trojans Viruses or other malware. I didn’t know what to do. Maybe my antivirus program wasn’t that good was my next thought.

So I downloaded nearly every free antivirus program I could find online. I was ready to remove the Trojan virus on my computer. I ran the endless scans, but the results were disappointing.

There were some infections, which I instantly deleted – but no Trojan Viruses were found. I restarted the system several times but the symptoms were still there – the system was running awfully slow, pop ups were killing me, I was redirected every 10 seconds to some commercial sites…

And it got worse: now, some programs weren’t working (Word, ITunes). So I tried to post my problems in an online expert-forum.

The topic “How to remove a Trojan Virus” was quite popular, but it took some time, before somebody could give me some useful tips. Most people – including the experts – recommended me the program HiJackThis. This program scans the computer and creates a list of differences from a known spyware-free environment.

I ran the scan and even posted my log-file in the expert-forum. After one day, the “experts” told me there were no suspicious activities. I couldn’t believe it! I could feel there was a Trojan virus involved. The question “How to remove a Trojan virus” was already on my lips. But even HiJack couldn’t help me…?

The problem with HiJack is that it lists tons of processes running on your system. But that’s it! It’s up to you to decide which ones are “the bad ones” and need to be removed. And even worse: if you delete something wrong, it can cause significant damage to your system.

I was helpless and desperate – even the experts who studied several of my log-files couldn’t help me. And all the problems were still there – by now for some reason Opera quit working.

I was seriously thinking about buying a new PC! On the edge of despair, I read some reports from other guys in the online-forum who had the same problems – and successfully got rid of them. A lot of them were talking about a program called NoAdware – and how it helped them to find and remove the infections on their systems.

I had nothing to lose, so I gave it a try – particularly because the scan was free. Believe it or not – I was surprised. The program found 14 infections, among the Trojan Horses Vundo and ConHook and some Trojan-agents.

And the program was even able to delete them. I restarted the system and suddenly the all the programs worked like before – almost. There were no more pop ups and no more redirections to unknown sites. But the system was still a bit slow.

So I repeated the test. The result showed still some infections – but no Trojans. I pushed the delete-button and after the next restart - finally - my system was running like before. I couldn’t believe it. It was such a great feeling of relief.
I wish I had NoAdware on my system from the beginning and could save all the time I wasted trying to delete the Trojan horses on my own, endless reading and posting in online forums – not to mention all the bad emotions. :-(
