“ A program that searches out Trojan Horses and cleans them from your system. „
Trojan horse attacks pose one of the most serious threats to computer security. It gained its name from a legend that the Greeks won a war by hiding in a big wooden horse to get into some fortified city. In computer terms a Trojan horse is defined as a malicious, security breaking program that is disguised, such as a screen saver, game, or program, to get inside your computer. You might have heard of the 'Love Bug' last year (2000)?, well that was a trojan..!! Unlike viruses, a trojan does not spread itself across to other files in your computer, but they are just as destructive! For all you know you could be downloading an anti-virus program, instead its a program that fills your computer up with all sorts of viruses. Or when you connect to the Net a program can run itself in the back ground and sending out all your passwords to someone!! Trojans can: * Erase or Modify files. * Steal your passwords. * Allow a user (who could be anywhere in the world) to take over your computer, basically he can do anything you can do (such as view your emails/files, run other programs, shut down your computer etc). * It can also spread itself by sending itself to all the people in your address book. Some popular anti-virus programs can pick up the more popular trojans, but NOT all. First step of avoiding in getting a trojan on your computer, is never accept files from other people who you dont trust over the Internet. However, even files that your friends send, unknown to them, can have a trojan. Trojans can be attached to other harmless programs and they split from that file once it has been run. So therefore you can never be sure of a file, so the next best method is installing an 'anti-trojan' program. The Cleaner is such a program, it works like any anti-virus program. It's very user friendly, you dont need to do anything, just hit the scan butto n and let it find and wipe out any trojans on your computer. It will show you the list of trojans it finds and then with a smile you can terminate them all..!! It has an optional real-time detector, which will be monitoring in the background, so if you run a suspicious file, you will be warned straight away. The file would be stopped from running and you have the option of deleting it OR removing the trojan from a harmless program. It has an auto-update facility, where you can download the latest trojan definitions as well as any new updates for the program. If you have Norton Anti-virus, you will notice the similarity in the way it works. The Cleaner is 100% trojan horse detection and removal program. It is NOT an anti-virus (yes, there is a difference), so therefore it wont detect any viruses!!
Its that dreaded word "Trojan" and "Oh no" which seem to come out all in one sentence but with Moosoft the cleaner we need no longer fear the "Oh no". This nice small download took me a few moments to install and check my hard drive for signs of any Trojans and it came back with no trojans found. I like this gem piece of software for its K.I.S.S (keep it short and sweet) approach to hidden horse hunting trojans. a real must have.
If anyone out there has ever fallen foul to hackers and had the misfortune of having a Trojan (described later in opinion) left on their system, then they will know the damage that can be done by these nasty little things. Well anyway, I use a nifty little program called “The Cleaner”, what this program basically does is as the title suggest, it cleans any Trojans that some unscrupulous hacker may have left on your system. What is a Trojan? Some of you may ask, well basically it is a file that is left on your computer by hackers that gives them control of your computer and can actually act as a server between yours and their computers whenever you are online, and unless you are using a firewall like Zone Alarm they can do virtually anything they wish, without you even noticing, they can rob passwords, bank details, personal info, etc or they can actually format or destroy you hard-drives, as well as download undesirable things onto your computer like porn pictures, viruses, etc. That’s where “The Cleaner” comes in, alls you do is run this program whenever you have been using the internet, and it will scan through your hard drives, to see if any of the Trojans in its database can be found, if it finds them, it will alert you and delete them appropriately. The Cleaner has a decent size database of Trojans, and can be updated very quickly, whenever you are surfing the internet, this is very important, as there are new Trojans being created daily, so please make sure you update very regularly. Although I must add, The Cleaner as well as any similar program will no doubt have Trojans that it will not find, but it is about the best out there. Also included with “The Cleaner” is another useful program called “TCActive”, as long as you have this running, whilst using the Internet, it will stop any Trojans, being downloaded on to your system. You can find “ The Cleaner” at “http://www.moosoft.com” and it is a shareware program, so you can use it freely until your 30-day trial period runs out, then you have to register for the lifetime use of it, it will probably set you back about £20, but what’s £20 when you can be assured that no nasty Trojan is running on your system causing havoc? I would strongly advise anyone to download this program, even if its just for the trial period, as you never know what is on your system, as Trojans are virtually untraceable, even with virus killers like Norton’s anti-virus, etc, and they can be very dangerous and destructive.
I had my computer hacked a few months ago and as i am not exactly a computer genius i was wondering why everytime i logged onto the internet this same hacker knew i was online. I then found out it is because he/she had installed a Trojan Horse onto my computer and everytime i logged onto the internet he/she was informed. I tried to run a virus scan but when it found the trojan it said it couldn't remove it. Then i found The Cleaner, this easy to download and install programme will find almost any Trojan Horse there is and succesfully remove it. It also has a usefull list of all trojans with a description of what each one will do to your computer if gone undetected. With new Trojans being detected each day, The Cleaner's database is updated regularly in order to help you more. I consider myself lucky that i was hacked by what i would say a beginner, but without a good firewall and the cleaner who knows what could happen to your computer. This is a must have on your computer if you want your information and computer safe.
