Tglvsqfdnr.exe Description

Tglvsqfdnr.exe is a Trojan horse infection that infects computers either secretly or under false pretenses. Tglvsqfdnr.exe will then configure your registry so that Tglvsqfdnr.exe runs automatically, and may attempt to hide itself as a Windows system file. Since Trojans similar to Tglvsqfdnr.exe are able to spy on your computer, cause damage to files, or harm your security settings, deleting Tglvsqfdnr.exe is a sensible course of action.

Tglvsqfdnr.exe New Infection with Old Ties

Tglvsqfdnr.exe is related to well-identified threats like Trojan.CryptRedol and Gen.Malware.Heur. Since the spread of these infections and their close relatives has entered into the thousands range, the distribution of Tglvsqfdnr.exe is far from limited. Tglvsqfdnr.exe has been reported to be installed by some of these malware threats, and may cause additional problems besides those directly caused by the related malware.

Since the Tglvsqfdnr.exe Trojan was only first reported late in 2010, an up to date malware definitions database is useful and possibly even necessary for identifying and removing this threat. If you're using security software that hasn't been updated in some time, you're running the risk of letting Tglvsqfdnr.exe slip by your defenses.

More Traits of the Enemy

Tglvsqfdnr.exe usually travels with other infections, as noted above. Because of this it's slightly difficult to pinpoint which symptoms are directly caused by Tglvsqfdnr.exe and which are caused by its companion malware. Some of the most common damage a Trojan like Tglvsqfdnr.exe can cause consists of:

  • Adding lines to your registry so that Tglvsqfdnr.exe or other malware runs with Windows. There may be no visible signs of these programs running, other than the extra processes in Task Manager.
  • Duplicate file and process names. This is a known tactic malware related to Tglvsqfdnr.exe may use, as reports have shown that malware linked to this Trojan may alter or attempt to imitate the svchost.exe file. Since this file is integral to running Windows, it makes deleting Tglvsqfdnr.exe and accompanying malware that much harder.
  • Changing your Internet settings, often to use a proxy server. This allows Tglvsqfdnr.exe to hijack your browser and redirect you to any website Tglvsqfdnr.exe wishes, even to the point of misusing error messages for this purpose.
  • Downloading and executing other malware programs without your permission. This may cause an exponentially worsening system crisis that can result in your computer being seriously hurt.
  • Shutting down your security tools when you attempt to run them. This may pertain to either Microsoft Windows-inherent tools or popular third party tools used to scan for and remove Trojans like Tglvsqfdnr.exe.

Most of these problems can be stopped before they even start if you simply remove Tglvsqfdnr.exe when it's first noticed. Given the level of control this Trojan can potentially exert over your computer, you shouldn't waver in taking whatever measures are necessary to delete Tglvsqfdnr.exe. Otherwise your security and privacy are in the control of remote hackers.
