How to get rid of a trojan RRS feed

  • Question

  • A scan indicated that Trojan.Fakegina is on my machine.  I followed instructions to remove it from the Windows registry, but when I got to the registry the indicated value "GinaDLL"="fakegina.dll" wasn't there.  Where can I find out more about removing this trojan, or find out for sure if my machine is infected?

  • Hi,

    I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.  I wasn't sure how to check to see if there was an answer to my question.  This is new to me.

    I'm running XP on a Toshiba laptop.

    Since I last wrote, I've

    1. Gone into Task Manager and checked the Processes.  There was no evidence of the Fakegina or Ginastub being active.

    2. Worked through a potential solution that took me into Registry Editor and I deleted a Gina.dll and a Fakegina.dll.

    When I ran the Norton 360 Quick Scan, it did not show the Fakegina trojan.

    Then I ran a Norton 360 Comprehensive Scan, and it did show the Fakegina trojan.

    Any help you can give me will be appreciated.  I'll check this site for your response.  Thanks
