I may have trojan viruses on my computer. How do I find

Customer Question
I may have trojan...

I may have trojan viruses on my computer. How do I find them. I have a Toshiba with windows 10.

Technician's Assistant: Good tech support is often the difference between a quick fix and many sleepless nights. The Computer Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

I think I was scammed this morning. I want to ensure no trojan viruses were loaded. How or where do I find them. I do have Norton and ran a scan.

Technician's Assistant: Are you ready to speak with the Computer Technician now?

Yes

Hello,

When you ran norton did it find anything?

Tech Support Specialist: Chris L., Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

Norton likely would have found a trojan if there was one. If you want to be extra sure I would suggest you run this free tool that can find things that norton will sometimes miss.

Download the following program https://www.malwarebytes.org/trial/ (you do not need to buy it, just install and run a full scan. If it finds anything have it remove it for you. This is the trial version but works just as good as the paid version so no need to buy anything.

Please do me a favor and take a moment to rate my service by clicking the stars above, 3 or more is very appreciated, we can still chat after rating if you need more help.

Thanks,

Chris

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
