I wrote this article to help you remove aBSunset Virus. This aBSunset Virus removal guide works for all Windows versions.

Everyone is afraid of the Trojan Horse virus. And with good reason. It is an extremely versatile type of threat that is widely used by hackers. That’s because cyber criminals can do whatever they want with this virus – they may choose to use it to spy on people, to invade their privacy, to steal their private information, not to mention how easy it is to launch other malicious software on the victim’s computer like ransomware, worms, adware, etc.

Trojans like aBSunset are no exception. It is a new type of a Trojan Horse that is very hard to be detected. It is incredibly stealthy. This malicious software may also be used as a tool for turning the victim’s computer into a cryptocoin mining machine, which means that it will use all of the system’s resources like CPU and GPU power. Consequences of such actions will result in the constant system crashes and eventually the blue screen of death.

Mostly, Trojan Horse viruses are spread via bundled software and fake update requests. However, it is not unusual for them to get distributed through spam email messages, email attachments and executable files, shady links and ads, corrupt torrent files, etc. Often developers repackage programs and applications and bundle them together with malware.

The thing is, they do not properly disclose the content of the said bundles, which leaves a nasty surprise for users that install them on their computers. In order to prevent this from happening, we advise our readers to always choose a Custom or Advanced type of installation process, so as to be able to see the full content of the software bundles. This way you can easily deselect any unwanted software that looks suspicious or that you never intended to download in the first place.

No one wants to fall victim to a Trojan Horse. Sadly, it is very difficult for them to get detected, even if you have the best AV software available. That’s because Trojans are masters of disguise. As soon as they infiltrate your PC, they conceal themselves and wait for the perfect opportunity to strike. It is not necessary to launch an attack the moment they set foot on your computer. But once they do get active, all hell breaks loose.

Your entire system will get damaged, important system processes will get corrupted, all of your data will be snatched away by hackers, who seek to share it with other third-parties for profit. What’s more, you will notice a drastic decrease in the overall performance of your computer. It will reach a point where you won’t be able to do any kind of work on your PC. Which is why it is crucial to act as quickly as possible and proceed with the removal of this nasty Trojan Horse infection from your computer. If you are unsure how to do that, we can guide you through some steps. Just follow our detailed instructions below to successfully remove this dangerous virus before the worst happens and your system is damaged beyond repair.
