Trojan Killer v2

Recommended Posts

I was trying to get Trojan Killer v2 to work from a USB stick, but when I run it Avast A/V keeps chucking it in the Virus chest.

It runs ok with A/V switched off. Is that the only way it functions or is there a trick to it?

Any ideas?

Possibly the Avast antivirus program, is falsely detect it as malware but to be sure, upload the Trojan Killer programs files from the USB stick to:


VirusTotal, a subsidiary of Google, is a free online service that analyzes files and URLs enabling the identification of viruses, worms, trojans and other kinds of malicious content detected by antivirus engines and website scanners. At the same time, it may be used as a means to detect false positives.

Try to scan your PC with Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes Free does a good job of wiping out aggressive malware that gets past your regular antivirus. Easily the best malware detection and cleaner up program. The Free version works like a charm. Make sure to go into advanced options and click "scan for rootkits". 

Malwarebytes free downloads:


Another tiny program which can be useful in find registry errors or remove particularly tough malware is RogueKiller. Do a search in - CP Download Links Section/Windows Applications.

Try online virus scanner, it checks for any type of virus and helps you remove it.

I hope this helps, please post if any problems.

Thanks for your reply uk666.

Yeah I did try the Virustotal check and it came up all clean. I was just puzzled by the fact it wouldn't run without A/V being off.

I got Malwarebytes as you suggested and it works fine with my A/v being on. Go figure.

I'll keep Eset in mind

Thanks again
