The purpose of our
Anti-Trojan Guide is to provide information about
software that detects Trojan horses, removes them and repairs damage caused by
anti-Trojan product should be used
in addition to, but not instead of, anti-virus
software. After installing anti-Trojan software,
immediately check for updates at the vendor's site
and turn on the auto update feature (if it has one).
