Hacktool.WindowsLoader is a Trojan, which has been implemented by hackers to spread the infection and take control over your operating Windows system. Hacktools generally have keylogging abilities, can steal such personal data as passwords, and can even use your personal IM and email accounts to perform mass email attacks. This type of malware, just like Trojans, viruses, worms or keyloggers, do not have interface, and all malignant components work secretly, deep in your system’s background. Additionally, this Windows infection is a rootkit Trojan, meaning that application’s files can be hidden from existent security tools’ detection and removal. Despite the fact that you will not be able to see its components running in your PC and remove Hacktool.WindowsLoader the second it is activated, you can easily suspect its existence by tracking various system changes. These could include removed Windows controls, or dramatically decreased performance speeds; so, if this is already happening, do not postpone inspection and removal processes any further, or your computer could become irreparable, and all of your data could be deleted for good.
Even though you will not be able to check Trojan’s components’ running in the Task Manager, because of removed privileges to access this Windows Tool, the vicious infection is made of various .exe and .dll files, some of which are even cloaked! The most dangerous Hacktool.WindowsLoader executables are 204.exe, keygen.exe and patch.exe, all of which work coherently and surreptitiously, to make the overall infection invisible, and to tamper with your system’s data in any convenient way. The later file is responsible for employing rootkit element into the contamination, and it can also modify security policies, create untraceable Internet connections, register BHO (browser helper objects) to record your browsing history, or even release various, fake security related alerts. This means that Hacktool.WindowsLoader could possibly download fake antispyware applications, creating even more risk to your personal and financial data. Keygen.exe can remove access to Task Manager, Registry Editor, and modify Windows Security Center, making it impossible to detect and remove Hacktool.WindowsLoader infection. And once the Trojan is hidden and connection is created, 204.exe will make sure that your accounts are used to spread the infection via spam email attacks. Additionally, this file could also record your phone book details and other data collected in autoexec.bat file, which could later on be used for further schemes.
Rootkit Trojans should not be messed with, and the most effective way to delete Hacktool.WindowsLoader infection from your computer is by using well equipped automatic removal tools! If you think you can handle the Trojan manually, assess your experience carefully, and if you have not deleted rootkits successfully in the past, you should stick to legitimate software options.
