Virus Attacked

My personal computer was infected by a Trojan “PWS-Gamania.gen.a” in the past 2 days. To kill this “password stealer” worm, I spent more than 12 hours sitting in-front of my computer and tried out almost all the solutions that found on the Internet, but none of it can actually help me to solved the problem.

I actually have McAfee anti-virus software installed on my computer but it has expired for at least 8 months. I didn’t renew the subscription and the viruses update has been deactivated since then. Now I have no choice to renew the subscription with USD35 and download the latest viruses update. And so glad that it finally found the worm and killed it.

Here I learn a lesson- don’t save the money for needed safety or security!

It is worth to spend this money to buy protection for my computer and also can avoid unnecessary trouble (my computer is my main working tool, I can’t afford to lost my all data). Beside that, I also paid additional USD10 for another copy of McAfee and installed it onto my wife’s computer.

Herewith the list of best anti-virus software in the market:

Symantec Norton AntiVirus
McAfee Antivirus
Trend Micro Pc-Cillin
Kaspersky Anti-virus
ESET NOD32 Antivirus

These above are license software, for FREE anti-virus software:

Avast! antivirus Home Edition
AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition
Avira AntiVir Personal
BitDefender Free Edition
Comodo AntiVirus
PC Tools AntiVirus Free Edition

If you want to conduct computer online virus scan, below are the available tools (and of cause it is FREE):

Kaspersky Online Virus Scanner
BitDefender Online Scanner
Trend Micro HouseCall
CA Virus Scanner

Well, I personal prefered not to use the online virus scan, it takes me hours to complete the task of full scanning. Oops, this is because I have more than 150GB of files in my computer.

For a complete list of antivirus software, you can check out the wikipedia:

I hope the above information does help if you face the same issue as me. However, the best way to protect your computer is to keep your computer system clean and becareful when you copy/download/access from/to any other computer/removable device/Internet, especially virus email. And always remember, things could happend anytime, please do backup.
