Trojan.win32.agent.azsy Description


Trojan.win32.agent.azsy is a false positive infection alert generated by rogue anti-virus programs. Since Trojan.win32.agent.azsy isn’t a real infection, you can ignore all warnings about files being infected with Trojan.win32.agent.azsy. However, you should take steps to remove any rogue anti-virus program that creates Trojan.win32.agent.azsy warnings, since these rogue security applications will threaten various aspects of your computer, including your security applications and your web browser.

Trojan.win32.agent.azsy is a Fake Trojan Delivered by a Real One


Trojan.win32.agent.azsy is part of fake alerts created by a number of different rogue security applications, such as Personal Antivirus, Internet Antivirus Pro and General Antivirus. Here’s an example of one well-known Trojan.win32.agent.azsy alert message:

“Critical System Warning!
Your system is infected with version of Trojan.Win32.Agent.azsy. This malicious program is a Trojan. It is a Windows PE EXE. Once launched, the Trojan copies its body to the current user’s Windows startup directory and attempts to steal passwords from Int [sic]“


This warning usually appears as a desktop pop-up balloon, making it appear as though the Trojan.win32.agent.azsy warning is a part of your system security. If you click this warning, though, you’ll find yourself presented with a rogue security program window or redirected to the rogue security program’s website.

Regardless of what name the rogue security application uses in its pretense of being a security program, it will try to convince you that the only way to cure your PC of Trojan.win32.agent.azsy problems is to purchase an activation key. Giving the criminals behind this online fraud your credit card information will only expose you to other kinds of theft and fraudulent charges.

Putting a Stop to Trojan.win32.agent.azsy Alerts


Since Trojan.win32.agent.azsy doesn’t exist as a real threat to your PC, you shouldn’t worry about getting rid of Trojan.win32.agent.azsy. Instead, focus on removing the rogue security programs that falsely accuse your computer of being infected by Trojan.win32.agent.azsy!

General Antivirus, Personal Antivirus and similar threats will make this difficult, since they may block applications from running with fake alerts and control which websites you can browse hijacking your web browser. These attacks can be neutered by switching to an alternative boot mode where the rogue security program responsible for Trojan.win32.agent.azsy warnings will not launch automatically. The most generally-applicable way to do this is through Safe Mode, which is used by all Windows computers.

    I downloaded the SpyHunters Scanner and it picked up 23 Trojan type files on my computer. I tried to buy it but the program Personal Antivirus keeps coming up and blocking me from filling out the page to buy it on. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I keep getting the message that I’m infected with Trojan.Win32.Agent.azsy. Thanks
