Dear Matt and Exterminate it,

Thank you so much. This seems to have fixed the problem. Wow. That virus was in there pretty deep. A*G didn't even identify it. S****t would just freeze up when I tried to run it. But the update from Exterminate It, removed it.

Again, thanks.

Kind Regards,
Rev. Mel C. Montgomery

Virus

The term “virus” is often loosely used to refer to any type of malicious program or is used to describe any harm that a malicious program does to a computer. Strictly speaking, however, a virus is defined as program code that replicates.
This simple definition allows for numerous classifications of viruses. They can be further classified by the types of object they infect (for example, boot sector viruses, file viruses, and macro viruses), by the method that they use to select their host, or by the techniques they use to infect.

How Did My PC Get Infected with Neshta?^

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

  • 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 Neshta. 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 Neshta.

Visiting Questionable Web Sites

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

Detecting Neshta^

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

PC is working very slowly

Neshta 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 Neshta.

New desktop shortcuts have appeared or the home page has changed

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

Annoying popups keep appearing on your PC

Neshta 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

Neshta 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.
