I wrote this article to help you remove Background.js/Trojan.gen.npe.2. This Background.js/Trojan.gen.npe.2 removal guide works for all Windows versions.

Let’s be honest. Everyone has heard about the infamous Trojan Horse virus and its devastating capabilities. In this article, we’ll talk about Background.js/Trojan.gen.npe.2 – a nasty virus from the Trojan category. If you’ve fallen victim to it, keep reading to find out what dangers it brings and how you can get rid of it before it is able to severely damage your computer. As a typical Trojan, Background.js/Trojan.gen.npe.2 is very sneaky and versatile. As soon as it establishes itself on your computer, it will spread its executables, so it can load automatically on each startup.

The virus is able to alter all kinds of system settings, and also corrupts everything in its path. Soon, your PC will start lagging, programs and applications that previously worked fine, will unexpectedly crash or freeze, making any work with them impossible. What’s worse, hackers may exploit this malicious parasite for another agenda – private information theft. Your security has been compromised the moment the dangerous virus infiltrated your PC. Your personal data will no longer be private. Cyber criminals can even share such valuable information with other third-parties for profit.

Trojans typically lurk behind fake update requests, fake utility ads and pop-ups, dubious links, spam emails, corrupted torrent files, etc. When downloading content from the internet, the smart thing to do is to opt for a Custom/Advanced type of installation. This will give you the power to view the full contents of the downloaded software. If you see any additional programs and apps, we strongly recommend deselecting them.

More often than not, malware is hidden in such bundles and can only be viewed through this type of mode in the Setup Wizard. If you get a random pop-up that tries to make you follow a suspicious update or install link for a questionable app, we suggest you ignore it. Always rely on official and licensed sources for software downloads and updates.

Trojans are the most dangerous type of virus out there. Users can agree on that. Hackers love using it, since there is no limitation to what malicious deeds can be done through it. For example, hackers can steal your online identity and perform various illegal activities, all while pretending to be you. We are sure you don’t want that to happen to you. Also, Trojans put your privacy in jeopardy. It would be easy for criminals to hack your web cam and microphone and spy your every move. They could also follow everything you do online as well.

Bank accounts, credit card numbers, IP addresses, passwords, Login credentials… these are just of the few things that hackers find of value and will not hesitate to get their hands on. What’s more, Background.js/Trojan.gen.npe.2 can be used as means to launch other malicious parasites like browser hijackers, adware, spyware, worms, ransomware, etc. If you want to secure your personal information and files, we advise you to follow our detailed instructions and remove this dangerous virus from your computer ASAP.
