I have been having trouble with the Trojan Horse Clicker.AALX.? I have tried to use HijackThis but it is too confusing for me and I do not know what to delete.? How do I remove this program or file.? Please help!
First off, I’m glad you did not start clicking random things in HijackThis and delete random things; I can’t tell you what a nightmare that is to bring back those old files (most of the entries that pop up are good!).
The Trojan Horse Clicker.AALX is not a major security thread but it is an annoyance as it will bring pop-ups and change your web browser and default page settings especially on Internet Explorer.
The Trojan Horse Clicker.AALX actually needs some modification in our usual steps to get rid of it, but we’ll be able to remove it quickly.
To remove this program, we’re going to use Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware
The trick here is to change the name of the download file to something arbitrary name such as myfavoritetoy.exe or similar to fool the Trojan.? Follow the instructions:
Extra Note:If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately
Infections are getting smarter and can corrupt other types of measures to remove them.? Renaming the download file will help save your PC!
