In this article we'll talk about Bgtools, that infected the computer, and you unwittingly helped it to do this. This software can cause problems on your PC, and we strongly advise you to delete it as soon as you'll finish reading this article. The safest manner to stop the Trojan infection is to know how to distinguish malware. In the very beginning, we should tell you what Trojans are. The name “Trojan virus” speaks for itself: software of this sort secretly gets into victims' machines, trying to look like decent utilities, but they cannot distribute themselves. Actually, Trojans can't be called viruses, because the word “virus” means the ability of undesired software to reproduce and independently infect systems. Trojans can be compared to parasites: they are totally harmless and weak, but since they found the host they might call serious issues. The original host of newborn Trojan is its developer that gives it a guise of a useful tool and puts it on homely file-sharing website. Since then, the program is waiting until a credulous visitor downloads it and installs it on his computer. You need to know that Trojans are rarely distributed separately, but much more often in packages also known as “bundles” that consist of several Trojans, adware, viruses or malware.

When Trojan eventually finds a victim it starts to pursue its aims, which usually means bad things for the device. Trojans are the largest sort of malware, and might include your computer in a botnet, cause serious damage to the system or scrounge your passwords. Here's a complete enumeration of average methods to use Trojans:

  • Trojan viruses, thanks to their invisibility, are just ideal utilities for espionage. Trojan can dwell in an unprotected computer for a long time, collecting data against its owner, accounts, attended websites, passwords and, possibly, even any text entered from keyboard.
  • The less popular method of Trojans use is to develop so-called botnets. Botnet is a network of hundreds or even thousands of computers, or any other "intelligent" devices, through which scammers can perform their illegal schemes. With the assistance of suchlike networks they make attacks on major websites, send lots of viral e-mails and apply their calculating potential for other tasks, like mining of crypto-currency.

All these methods of applying Trojan viruses might be carried out separately or simultaneously. In addition to the written above goals, which directly benefit web-criminals, Trojans also have extra negatives: they take advantage of the resources of your computer, choke up its memory with unwanted applications and interfere to exploit the laptop for its intended purpose. Knowing this, you will totally endorse our verdict and eliminate Bgtools once and for all.
