Throughout my time writing for Product-Reviews I’ve tried to keep readers informed on how to get rid of some of the nastiest viruses and spyware infections which have affected people around the world – today we are telling you about two rogue software titles which are very similar to one-another these are ‘Windows Trojans Sleuth’ and ‘Windows Trojans Inspector’- they both look genuine, but as you’d expect all is not as it seems.
Windows Trojans Sleuth and Windows Trojans Inspector are both relatively easy to remove, all it takes is a little patience, mediocre computer skills and an understanding that all the worrying messages which these legit-looking programs throw your way are part of a scam put together to exploit your money. Below we have embedded a screenshot of Windows Trojans Sleath, it looks identical to what you’d see if you was infected with the Windows Trojans Inspector malware, in fact the only difference is the application’s name.
You can see the entire removal procedure here, we will summarize the process quickly for you in our article for the convenience of our more knowledgeable readers – but if you run into issues be sure to check out the link we added to the beginning of this paragraph.
Step 1: Boot your computer into ‘Safe Mode with Networking’. Step 2: Reset you computer’s connection settings by opening Internet Explorer, going into ‘Internet Options’, selecting the ‘Connections’ tab and then clicking on the ‘LAN Settings’ button. Now that’ you’re in LAN Settings tick the box next to ‘Use a proxy server for your LAN’ and then click OK, you’ll then have to click OK once more and this stage of the process is done.
Step 3: This non-essential stage in the removal process will significantly speed-up the removal procedure as the lengthy scans won’t have so many files to sift through – basically click on this link to download CCleaner and once you’ve downloaded the installer run it. Once installed open up CCleaner via the desktop shortcut and click ‘Yes’ is a message appears, once in hit ‘Run Cleaner’ and CCleaner will delete all the unnecessary files which have built up on your computer over time – this may take some time, but be patient.
Step 4: You must now download rKill from this page and run it on your computer (on Vista or Windows 7 you may have to right-click rKill.exe and select ‘Run as Administrator’) it will take a minute or so to stop malware-related background processes from running, but once complete you’re ready to go onto the next stage.
Step 5: Finally download Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware from here and install it. Once installed open up the newly installed program and click on the ‘Update’ tab, hit check for updates to ensure that you will be scanning for the newest infections – once you’re sure you are up-to-date click on the ‘Scan’ tab and run a full system scan. The scan will take at least an hour (in most cases), but once complete all infected files will show up, hit ‘Remove Selected’ and then MBAM will clear the infection’s – you’ll have to restart your computer, but when it’s back up you will be infection free – see, how easy was that?
