Usually, u can just identify the problem and then quarantine it. Problem solved. The "worst" trojan's are the glow in the dar... ohh i mean the one's that you neva detect.


Its all just smoke and mirrors

Posted:unlike viruses trogens only do damage when someone else accesses the program remotely on your computer so you can avoid all worries of trogens by having a firewall. it doesnt matter if you have a trogen if you have a firewall as you can set the firewall to prompt you when a program tries to access the internet and block the attempt when it does so zone alarm is a good free one.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?
