Trojan.Dropper.Agent is a dubious computer infection which, once installed, downloads other dangerous infections. Typically, the Trojan enters the system without the user’s permission and introduces its changes into the system. The infection should be removed from the PC once after spotting that the system’s performance has changed. Due to the fact that the Trojan has many components that not only have randomly given names but also ones of legitimate parts of Windows OS, it is highly advisable to use a reputable and powerful antispyware application to scan the system and delete Trojan.Dropper.Agent.
To hide itself and avoid being detected by the computer’s application, the infection use such files names as serial.sys, redbook.sys, rdpdr.sys, parport.sys and others. All these files mentioned are Windows system files, and they should not be deleted; however, if instead of camouflaged files the valid ones are removed, the system may stop running properly. Additionally, Trojan.Dropper.Agent modifies the registry so that the infection could start running as soon as the user boots up the computer. This is known to be performed by such files as opu.exe, Music System.exe (a.k.a UPDATE-62053.exe) and winhelp.exe. Because of the presence of the latter file, Task Manager and Registry Editor may be disabled. This file is also notorious for recording email box and phone book details and connecting to websites without the user’s approval. Moreover, Trojan.Dropper.Agent may cause serious damage, because it is likely that it can monitor information inputs. The file that monitors the user’s activity is known as psi.exe, which is also known as a legitimate application, and if its location is not in one of the folders of “Program Files”, then the system is really infected.
Always keep your computer security tool updated, because you could easily get your system infected with Trojan.Dropper.Agent, which is not easily noticed. For instance, one of its constituents is a file cohserver.exe, which disables security application so as not to be detected and removed. If you install a reliable antispyware application and regularly scan your system, it will keep it protected against such infections as Trojan.Dropper.Agent. Note that you should not remove the Trojan manually, because you may unintentionally delete the wrong file or miss some of its randomly named files.
