Hi there people, have you ever been attacked by a trojan horse? yesterday morning i was attacked by one of them, my computer was blocked and they asked me money to obtain a code to unblock it. Have you ever seen something like this? Have you ever been attacked by this kind of virus?

Months before my computer was a lovely home to them. There were several types of Trojan virus and I removed the by using AVG and Kaspersky. I think both of these two powerful antivirus will help you to put them away.

Hi codris: After making some disasters on my computer when I was a teenager I have learnt not to download everything and be very careful with my email. That's the rule to lower your risk to let someone enter with a Trojan horse on your computer. ALVARO

There are many different types of trojan horse viruses in computers but i have not encountered the type that you have. Maybe you must have a better anti virus for your computer so that you can get rid of it. But before that, it is better first if you will reformat it. :) . Sometimes, most of virus are from websites so be sure to check your firewall and internet security settings also. :)

Hello codris, I have had a few attempts from trojans on my system but thankfully none of them have been as serious as yours. Also, I have AVG as my anti virus that keeps me protected from all the online threats, despite being a free version. I hope your situation is resolved now and would really recommend a strong anti virus to prevent such a situation from recurring. Happy surfing!

Sounds like one of the antivirus 2012/2011/2010/2009 really hate that virus and when you pay it still does not work. Hope you manage to shift it there are many fixes online but still you will probably have lost your data and may have to re-install you operating system.
