Block Trojans

Sometimes, even antivirus softwares fail in removing the trojans, or they don’t even get to know that a trojan is residing on your PC…

Here’s what you can do if that happens, and also manually protect yourselves from them and have some fun yourselves blocking them without using any other software :)

1.Get a list of Services that’re running on your PC…

The list of the processes that you see in the Task Manager isn’t the complete list of the processes/services running on your Pc…
To get the list of all the services that are currently running on your PC, follow these 2 steps:

  1. Go to “Run“(Windows Logo Key + R) and type “services.msc” and hit Enter.
  2. There you are! A complete list of services running on your PC would be there for you…And you know, this list can be used to terminate trojans that are residing on your PC!

2.How to Detect Trojans using it?

It’s really easy, just browse through the list and look for *weird* and *unusual* service names…most of the names that you find will be the ones that you might have came across before, like the words that begin with “Windows”. There will be a bunch of such names, and you can easily make out which one does what by looking at its description, and then note down the suspicious names.

3.Clear your Suspicion

Time for some research…time to see if your suspicions are really harmful or not :)

Try your suspicious names in the TrendMicro ThreatEncyclopedia and see if you get it there…If you don’t,then Google the suspicious  names, you’ll surely find them :D

If you find some positives, then carry on to the next step

4.Got the Culprits? Shut them off!

  • Right-click on the Trojan service and go to “Properties”
  • Click the “Stop” button.
  • In the “Start-up type” choose “Disabled”.
  • You’re done with it…

You have blocked a trojan manually, now the next time you turn on your PC, go  to services and check if it worked :D
