This especially nasty malware has a very sneaky way of installing itself on your PC and it's made all the worse by the fact that it had a helping hand to do so – a helping hand by you.

The main trait of Trojan horses is that once they've wormed their way onto your PC they will begin to attack and destroy your files and documents.
If you think that malware won't bother you, you should not be so complacent. It's not enough to merely have an antivirus installed on your machine and think that's the be all and end all. You need to manually run it regularly and you should also turn on your computer's firewall. Because malware is constantly being upgraded, that means that Windows and other software is too – therefore you should always make sure you have the latest security patches installed on your PC too.
Having said that, Hacktool:Win32/Gendows can slip through the net, so you need to exercise extra caution when you're using the Internet. Don't download gimmicky looking programs that you know in your heart of hearts you don't need – stick with the big names of antivirus programs, viewers and the like. And also stay extra alert when opening emails. Don't open mails (or instant messages) from senders you don't know and never ever click on a link or open an attachment if you don't know where it's come from.
The Trojan horse malware is far more serious than many other types of malware so you really should take all the steps you can to protect yourself against this sneaky and unscrupulous online parasite. If your computer is already infected, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Good luck and be safe online!
