There are different types of Trojans out there and Trojan.Flymux.A is a type of Trojan that changes your browser settings at the same time trying to download various files and then execute them without your consent. Usually Trojan.Flymux.A is installed in your computer by another malware, so if you have this Trojan, it means that you are most probably infected by other parasites as well. Therefore, you are strongly adviced to run a system scan every now and then, because Trojans do not usually have an interface and it is hard to determine whether you are infected or not at first.
When Trojan.Flymux.A is installed into the target computer, it copies itself as an existing folder name while all of its attributes are set to hidden. Since the folder is hidden, it increases the chances of the user to execute the Trojan’s code, especially when he or she opens the folder of the same name. Trojan.Flymux.A also creates quite a few entries in your registry, thus making it possible for the malware run automatically whenever you boot your computer.
The main thing this Trojan does is changing the view settings for the Windows Explorer. When it starts working, it does not allow you to see files with hidden attributes. Trojan.Flymux.A modifies registry key entries so that a portion of operating systsem files would be hidden from your view. Trojan.Flymux.A also changes your home page for the Internet Explorer browser. This Trojan also works as a monitoring tool and it checks what kind of websites your are visiting. Sometimes it forcefully redirects you to certain sites and then displays advertisements of commercial nature, making it almost impossible to avoid this spam.
Trojan.Flymux.A also can connect to the Internet on its own and download configuration data from a remote server. The configuration that it receives might order the Trojan to download other malicious programs and as a result it exposes your vulnerable system to an infection far greater than the you one you are suffering from at the moment. The only way out of this situation involves removing Trojan.Flymux.A for good.
If you do not know how to deal with this pest on your own, do consider acquiring a good security program that will detect and delete every single file related to Trojan.Flymux.A. What is more, a computer safeguard program will protect you from similar threats in the future, and you will not have to worry about being infected with Trojans or other types of malware ever again.
