Trojan-GameThief.Magania is an insidious infection that is very often used to spread other malware such as fake antivirus programs, which are used to trick computer users. Once in the system, the Trojan injects its code in the registry to start malignant processes operating once the user logs onto the computer. It is important to remove Trojan-GameThief.Magania as soon as possible because it can throw the system into disorder and be the cause of further infection-related problems.
The Trojan impairs the system by corrupting the registry and starting its processes that do not allow some programs including security applications to run. The Trojan may also display misleading messages even if the computer is not connected to the Internet. Moreover, if the rogue downloads fake antivirus application, the user may receive misleading information simultaneously encouraging him/her to invest in a rogue product that supposedly removes “threats”. In this case, the Trojan will be responsible for displaying simulated scans reporting “infections”, which are not actually present on the computer. Trojan-GameThief.Magania may also disable access to the Internet; hence, if you cannot download a spyware removal tool onto the infected computer, download one onto a protected machine and then transfer the installation files onto the compromised PC. It is inadvisable to remove Trojan-GameThief.Magania manually, because quite a few malicious files, processes and registry entries have to be deleted so that to remove the infection completely.
Therefore, if you notice that your computer is not running as usual, scan it with a powerful spyware removal tool to determine the condition of your system. If your antispyware program is powerful enough, it will detect and fully remove Trojan-GameThief.Magania from the system.
