Wow,

I really can't believe you got back to me. I had bought and paid for 2 other Malware programs in the last 5 days, X********E & P*********c Anti-Spyware, and sent them the same message. I paid for yours and got 2 others from friends that where cracked copies N****n & S*******r but no one has got back to me. I have not heard a peep out of them but You have got back to me.

Well done.

Your faithfully ( a customer forever)

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.

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:

SillyDl.AZG, Vienna.Ambalama, Dreeb, Generic.Downloader, Pigeon.AVRW.

How Did My PC Get Infected with VCU?^

The following are the most likely reasons why your computer got infected with VCU:

  • Your operating system and Web browser's security settings are too lax.
  • You are not following safe Internet surfing and PC practices.

Downloading and Installing Freeware or Shareware

Small-charge or free software applications may come bundled with spyware, adware, or programs like VCU. 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 VCU.

Visiting Questionable Web Sites

When you visit sites with dubious or objectionable content, trojans-including VCU, spyware and adware, may well be automatically downloaded and installed onto your computer.

Detecting VCU^

The following symptoms signal that your computer is very likely to be infected with VCU:

PC is working very slowly

VCU can seriously slow down your computer. If your PC takes a lot longer than normal to restart or your Internet connection is extremely slow, your computer may well be infected with VCU.

New desktop shortcuts have appeared or the home page has changed

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

Annoying popups keep appearing on your PC

VCU 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.

E-mails that you didn't write are being sent from your mailbox

VCU may gain complete control of your mailbox to generate and send e-mail with virus attachments, e-mail hoaxes, spam and other types of unsolicited e-mail to other people.
