Trojan.Startpage.gen!A

Trojan.Startpage.gen!A is a type of a Trojan infection that forcefully redirects your search results and also modifies the internet browser settings. This Trojan has been witnessed to affect mainly the Internet Explorer web browser. Once it changes the browser settings, Trojan.Startpage.gen!A sets a new browser home page or the default search page. Even though at first glance it might not look as something serious, you have to keep in mind that Trojan.Startpage.gen!A is a type of malware, that can lead to further infections, and it tries to lure you into malware-related websites, so that you would spend your money for nothing.

This Trojan can enter your computer via a drive-by download or together with some shareware program that you download over the internet. Thus you have to download files only from trusted sources, otherwise you will definitely catch something like Trojan.Startpage.gen!A. Its intrusive nature is obvious at once, because right upon the installation Trojan.Startpage.gen!A adds itself to registry keys that deal with the programs running at the Current version of Windows. That way the Trojan can launch automatically and run in the system’s background each time you turn on your computer.

When it is running, Trojan.Startpage.gen!A changes the home page and the search page of the browser without your permission, and it can also display various types of unwanted commercials, because it comes with an adware component called 1e78.dll. It also means that the Trojan can connect to the internet without your knowledge or permission, and it is excruciatingly annoying, because you cannot track its activity as it does not have an interface.

You can, however, check the process files that are associated with Trojan.Startpage.gen!A and if you have them running in the Windows Task Manager, then you are certainly infected. For example, shell32ui.exe is a malicious process that should not be running in your system.
