Trojan found - has it been made safe?

Go to solution

McAfee has just 'done' its weekly full scan of my computer. The security report says it detected 1 trojan. It also says that my system is secure and no action required.

 

This may be an obvious question - but is there anything I should do to remove the found Trojan? If so I can't find a way to remove it. Or, which I hope is the case, has McAfee dealt with it and I have nothing further to worry about?

 

I always look at the security report and this is the first time it has indicated that something has been found.

there is nothing to do as McAfee will have either deleted or put in quarantine.  probably came with something you downloaded

Most security systems block Trojans. To be sure download and run Malwarebytes that shuold kill off any Tojans.

Thanks for reassuring me. I'll have a look at the two programs recommended although I do have Ad-Aware installed which I think does the same thing.

Always the best removal guide for any Trojans and Malware. Run that any problems hit up the community forums with your logs. Those guys in there are beyond intelligent.

 

On a side note , i prefer ESET Nod32 as my AV if i ever actually use any.
