Huawei P10 review
I have been informed today by a computer engineer that we have a trojan on our PC, but not how to remove it, so I came to the help forum for advice, scrolled down to see what was about and came across a message to do with Trojan security, downloaded the required proggy, which found 19 problem files, which it said it had deleted, shut down PC. When next I reboot, did I have problems!!!!!! Up comes a blue screen, telling me I had a problem (on too little time to read it) bang. PC closes down, then reboots, round and round until I was just about ready to scream. I went to work and spoke to another PC person who told me to press F8 and start in Safe Mode, which I did and was then able to uninstall this Proggy, end of Problem. So...... was this notification on todays forum about Trojans and this programme a bit suspicious..... Or what? I still have the trojan and don't know how to get rid of it.
What is happening is, when I boot up, Internet Explorer keeps starting un-invited ( I can't abide I/E and don't use it as default)giving me all these rubbish websites, like unsolicited mail, and this is what I was told is a Trojan. ???True or False???? What's the [oint then in having a firewall running and norton Anti-virus if this crap still gets through, I ask?? Can anyone advise please???? Thanks
The Proggy was EWIDO-FREE and I was online about 2pm this afternoon.
Thanks to those who responded. Tried the proggies suggested, but no viruses or Trojans found. So, I am mystified as to what is going on with Internet Explorer, I know I would prefer a browser to load at my request, not for it do so of it's own accord, so is this what Trojan's do?? What I know about them you could put on the head of a pin?????
There was a posting earlier today recommending Ewido as a free anti trojan programme. (Sorry, can't remember who posted it). I've been running Ewido for the last six weeks or so with Norton Anti Virus 2003, a2, and a number of other anti trojan and anti spyware programmes without any problems.
It is certainly a legitimate programme which has been mentioned and recommended on other forums. It was even commented on by the writer of a2 the other week. (He wasn't very complimentary - bemoaning the lack of signatures - but Ewido have been issuing updates twice daily since they brought out the Plus Version a couple of weeks back.)
