Know Your Malware: Harnig Removal
Harnig is a trojan designed to secretly download and install numerous adware parasites, dialers, backdoors and other trojans. Once executed, it silently installs itself to the system and drops few pests. Then it contacts certain Internet resources and downloads more parasites. Harnig connects a compromised computer to the Internet by dialing a high-cost phone number using a modem. It also changes the web browser's settings and decreases overall Internet security. The trojan is able to terminate some antivirus processes. It automatically runs on every Windows startup.
