Hi, I recently have been having a variety of issues with my system, everything being changed and programs locking me out of files, I don't even have access to "run" any longer... I had ran all the usual items like Malware bytes, Kaspersky, Rogue Killer, and all show no virus, then I happened to download "Assasin ie" and it popped up with an extreme Trojan virus warning and when I clicked on info it said I have the "Wolf 16" Trojan and proceeded to explain what it was.  I have since tried every suggestion on the web search but it stops me from downloading anything new or updating.
Can someone please help me with this or any information that I can try? I would be most grateful for any help.  

My operating system is windows 7 home premium, and my system is HP G72 NOTEBOOK PC 64 BIT --- Not sure what else you need me to post but just let me know,

Thanks :radioactive:

One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan. This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files. I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation. Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information: How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud? When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall We can still clean this machine but I can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards. Let me know what you decide to do.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
