Using Malwarebytes To Remove Trojan.FakeAlert

About Staff Correspondent

What is Trojan.FakeAlert?

Trojan.FakeAlert is a Trojan that tries to install antispyware in your computer. It also affects the registry keys and installs files that create false positives for viruses when you scan your system with fake antispyware programs. As Trojan.FakeAlert installs fake spyware in your system, you may end up buying the antispyware program that it suggests in order to get rid of the spyware. Sometimes, they may be remotely controlled and updated. This way it would become much more difficult to remove the program manually. Trojan.FakeAlert affects the system and changes the desktop background to a message that would warn you of an infection in your system. It would suggest the name of an antispyware program which will be fake. However, you can remove such fake alert spyware with the help of Malwarebytes.

Effect of Trojan.FakeAlert on system

When Trojan.FakeAlert attacks your system, the startup becomes very slow and it goes on becoming slower by the day. At the same time, while using your system, you will constantly come across pop-ups that warn you of virus infection. The desktop would change automatically and it would show a warning message on the spyware attack. In addition to this, you will not be able to open any web pages through Internet Explorer.

Removing Trojan.FakeAlert by using Malwarebytes

Initially, you need to download Malwarebytes in your system. Then you need to install it by double clicking the set-up file. The prompts of the installation wizard too need to be followed. Finally, you need to click on ‘Finish’ to complete the process. Once this is done, you need to start the scanning process. After the completion of the scanning process, you can find Trojan.FakeAlert in the list of threats. After marking and removing the threats, restart your computer and rerun the scan to ensure all the threats have been removed from your system.

Important points

Malwarebytes is only meant for removing the Trojan.FakeAlert spyware from a system. It does not protect a system against the arrival of this spyware.
