How to Remove TrojanSpy.Win32.DKS from the Windows Registry^

The Windows registry stores important system information such as system preferences, user settings and installed programs details as well as the information about the applications that are automatically run at start-up. Because of this, spyware, malware and adware often store references to their own files in your Windows registry so that they can automatically launch every time you start up your computer.

To effectively remove TrojanSpy.Win32.DKS from your Windows registry, you must delete all the registry keys and values associated with TrojanSpy.Win32.DKS, which are listed in the Registry Keys and Registry Values sections on this page.

IMPORTANT: Because the registry is a core component of your Windows system, it is strongly recommended that you back up the registry before you begin deleting keys and values. For information about backing up the Windows registry, refer to the Registry Editor online help.

To remove the TrojanSpy.Win32.DKS registry keys and values:

  1. On the Windows Start menu, click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type regedit and click OK.
    The Registry Editor window opens. This window consists of two panes. The left pane displays folders that represent the registry keys arranged in hierarchical order. The right one lists the registry values of the currently selected registry key.
  3. To delete each registry key listed in the Registry Keys section, do the following:
    • Locate the key in the left pane of the Registry Editor window by sequentially expanding the folders according to the path indicated in the Registry Keys section. For example, if the path of a registry key is
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\FolderA\FolderB\KeyName1
      sequentially expand the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, software, FolderA and FolderB folders.
    • Select the key name indicated at the end of the path (KeyName1 in the example above).
    • Right-click the key name and select Delete on the menu.
    • Click Yes in the Confirm Key Delete dialog box.
  4. To delete each registry value listed in the Registry Values section, do the following:
    • Display the value in the right pane of the Registry Editor window by sequentially expanding the folders in the left pane according to the path indicated in the Registry Values section and selecting the specified key name. For example, if the path of a registry value is
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\FolderA\FolderB\KeyName2,valueC=
      sequentially expand the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, software, FolderA and FolderB folders and select the KeyName2 key to display the valueC value in the right pane.
    • In the right pane, select the value name indicated after a comma at the end of the path (valueC in the example above).
    • Right-click the value name and select Delete on the menu.
    • Click Yes in the Confirm Value Delete dialog box.

Trojan

A trojan is a program that is disguised as legitimate software but is designed to carry out some harmful actions on the infected computer.

Unlike viruses and worms, trojans don’t replicate but they can be just as destructive.

These days trojans are very common. Trojans are divided into a number different categories based on their function or type of damage.

Be Aware of the Following Trojan Threats:

Small.aba, SSKC, Bat.gre.kit, Bancos.GIA, Talpalk.

Spyware

Spyware is designed to gather data from a computer and transfer it to a third party without the consent or knowledge of the computer’s owner. This includes collecting confidential information (passwords, credit card numbers, PIN numbers, etc.), monitoring key strokes, gathering e-mail addresses, or tracking surfing habits. Such resource-consuming activities slow down the system and generally impact the computer’s performance.

“Spyware” is an umbrella term for a diverse group of malware-related programs, rather than a clear-cut category. Most spyware definitions apply not only to adware, pornware and ‘riskware’ programs, but to many trojans as well.

Be Aware of the Following Spyware Threats:

MDSA.Sentinel, Tm.Logger, TrojanSpy.Win32.KeyHunter, XRT, ABCKeylogger.

How Did My PC Get Infected with TrojanSpy.Win32.DKS?^

The following are the most likely reasons why your computer got infected with TrojanSpy.Win32.DKS:

  • Your operating system and Web browser's security settings are too lax.

Downloading and Installing Freeware or Shareware

Small-charge or free software applications may come bundled with spyware, adware, or programs like TrojanSpy.Win32.DKS. Sometimes adware is attached to free software to enable the developers to cover the overhead involved in created the software. Spyware frequently piggybacks on free software into your computer to damage it and steal valuable private information.

Using Peer-to-Peer Software

The use of peer-to-peer (P2P) programs or other applications using a shared network exposes your system to the risk of unwittingly downloading infected files, including malicious programs like TrojanSpy.Win32.DKS.

New desktop shortcuts have appeared or the home page has changed

TrojanSpy.Win32.DKS can tamper with your Internet settings or redirect your default home page to unwanted web sites. TrojanSpy.Win32.DKS may even add new shortcuts to your PC desktop.

Annoying popups keep appearing on your PC

TrojanSpy.Win32.DKS may swamp your computer with pestering popup ads, even when you're not connected to the Internet, while secretly tracking your browsing habits and gathering your personal information.
