This File Contained a Virus and was Deleted


Yes if you are getting this error message while downloading anything so it simply means that your computer is infected with ZeroAccess Trojan.

Primarily, Trojan ZeroAccess is a kernel-mode rootkit, similar in ethos to the TDL family of rootkits. It uses advanced techniques to hide its presence, is capable of functioning on both 32 and 64-bit flavors of Windows from a single installer, contains aggressive self defense functionality and acts as a sophisticated delivery platform for other malware.

Trojan ZeroAccess remains hidden on an infected machine while downloading more visible components that generate revenue for the botnet owners. Currently the downloaded malware is mostly aimed at sending spam and carrying out click fraud, but previously the botnet has been instructed to download other malware and it is likely that this will be the case again in the future.


How to Remove it:-

Trojan ZeroAccess make it difficut to remote itself because it will not let you install any anti virus or anti malware from Internet.

But yes still you can remove it by using these steps:

1 Click on the Start button, select Computer, click on Local Disk (C:), and the click on Program Files.

2 In the Program Files folder, right-click the Windows Defender folder and select Rename from the context      menu.
