    After you gave booted your computer to safe mode, run a thorough scan of you computer to detect and delete the trojan or any other such malicious contents. Make Sure that you update your anti-virus database before you boot your computer to safe mode.

    Re: Troj/Bifrose-UV causing system to crash

    On a system infected by the Troj/Bifrose-UV trojan the following actions are been carried out by the hacker who designed the trojan:
    • Modify Windows Security Settings.
    • Manipulate Files and Folders.
    • Turn Off Windows Firewall.
    • Make an entry in the Windows Registry.
    • Take Screen shots and send to the hacker.
    • Random System crash and shutdown.
    • Denial Of Services.
    • Block Anti-virus updates.

    It is not very difficult to locate the presence of the Troj/Bifrose-UV files. The trojan is also being known to duplicate system files and use them to launch an attack on the user computer.
