    BAT/Lnkget.Y Trojan Downloader hangs the Anti-virus Scan

    My computer is behaving very unusually since it has been attacked by the BAT/Lnkget.Y Trojan Downloader. I am using Norton anti virus which detected this Trojan. But when I selected to delete the Trojan the Norton anti virus program hangs. I even ran a system scan which would also hang once the BAT/Lnkget.Y Trojan Downloader was detected. Also my computer boots very slowly and internet connectivity is lost very frequently.

    Run a Scan in Safe Mode

    The trojan which is being detected by Norton might be using the services of a third party application which restricts Norton from removing the trojan. Thus you will have to disable the third party application that serves the trojan. For this you will have to re-boot your computer and boot in Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key while the computer prepares booting. The Safe Mode booting will disallow any third party software. Thus you can Run a Scan in Safe Mode to remove the trojan.
