Hi, I'm Noah, and I'm going to show you how to remove a Trojan worm virus. A Trojan virus is a virus that not only can cause damage to your system, but it's especially dangerous because, basically, it can allow another user to control pretty much your computer and make it do various actions. To remove a Trojan worm virus, you'll want to have an anti-virus program running on your computer, like Norton from Symantec, or McAfee anti-virus. Both of these, you have to pay a subscription fee for, which is around 50 dollars a year, usually, so if you don't want to chip in that much for an anti-virus program, you can also get a free one like Avast! anti-virus free edition or, also, Avira anti-virus free edition, which you can find at www.free-av.com. Now, once you have either a free anti-virus or one that you paid for installed and running on your computer, simply launch it and then try doing a system scan to locate the Trojan worm virus and then try to remove it with the program. You'll also want to make sure that you keep your anti-virus software up to date. Make sure you have automatic updates on, and that you're updating regularly. If you see some kind of red mark like this next to your last update, that means it hasn't been updating right and it might not get rid of the latest viruses.
