Remove Trojan.ModifiedUPX

I started the computer as usual in the morning and then received a warning from my antivirus program showing that my computer is infected with Trojan.ModifiedUPX. The antivirus program cannot get Trojan.ModifiedUPX out from my computer. Because Trojan.ModifiedUPX is in the computer, I always receive a pop-up which prompts me to allow a Java update service. Although I have banned the pop-up, I still don’t know how to remove Trojan.ModifiedUPX completely. I don’t want my computer broken. I hope someone can help me.

Trojan.ModifiedUPX Instruction :

Trojan.ModifiedUPX is a very aggressive Trojan virus which is able to break into the computer without user’s permission. If the computer user opens a malicious website, clicks on a spam attachment, downloads an unknown free program or allows a false update, it can seize the system vulnerabilities to take control of the computer. Once getting into the computer, Trojan.ModifiedUPX starts to modify the default settings of system registry entries so that it can start automatically with the computer bootup.

Due to the presence of Trojan.ModifiedUPX, your computer running speed is slower and slower. You will continually receive a window which is to remind you of allowing the Java update service. Although you have tried to disable the update service from the control panel, the window still pops up randomly because the window is able to bypass the Internet browser shielding device, antivirus programs and the firewall. In some cases, you will receive email errors and even be unable to access some original emails. The infected computer may also force you to review some commercial windows or links. These commercials or links usually have no Cancel button for you to shut them down. Even if you’re lucky to close them by force, they will come back in a few minutes. Furthermore, you must be surprised to find many unknown programs and shortcuts appear in your computer. Basically, Trojan.ModifiedUPX can be used by the cyber criminals to promote their products and track your browsing history. What’s worse, Trojan.ModifiedUPX is able to show parts of the system resources to the cyber criminals. They make use of system and security vulnerabilities to access the infected computer easily. In this case, your privacy is easy to be obtained and put into illegal use by them. For lurking in the target computer as long as possible and avoiding any antivirus software, the virus pretends to be a legitimate system process. In order to reduce the damages caused by Trojan.ModifiedUPX, you had better remove it timely.
