If you need to know how to remove trojans it’s simply down to two things the applications ability to recognize the infection and of course to remove the thing properly.
One of the most annoying things in regard to Trojans is their persistence, why do they seem to come back again and again?
More often and not it’s down to the computer still not having adequate protection, or it was never removed properly in the first place.
One thing to bear in mind is no antivirus/antimalware software detects 100% of virus’s, malware/Trojans, in this respect its worth running two types of trojan virus remover, personally I would recommend running Microsoft Security Essentials as your main defense, this is very good and offers superb virus recognition and removal properties.

In addition to this I recommend running another package such as Malwarebytes, or Spybot search and destroy, and even though this does not offer real time protection such as Ms Security Essentials, running an extra scan once a week is a good thing which offers that little bit more peace of mind.
In addition to running a good Trojan virus remover you need to tighten up security on your computer, this involves..
Make sure all user accounts have passwords, and good passwords at that, nothing too easy to guess, double check the Administrator account has a password, also make sure the Guest account is disabled.
Ensure Windows has the very latest updates, many of these offer protection from hackers and other exposed security flaws within Windows.
All firewalls need to be on; this includes the Windows firewall on your computer, plus the firewall built into your router.
If using a wireless network the wireless security type should be enabled, and set to WPA and not WEP which can be hacked very easily.
Any computers security is only as good as the person using the computer, by this I mean don’t open email attachments from anyone unless you’re sure that it is safe, always delete temp files and cookies from your internet browser.
When browsing the internet if out of the blue you get an anti-virus pop screen STOP!!!! Don’t Click, make sure the popup screen is actually from your antivirus software and not a websites page impersonating an antivirus product, if you click the chances are it will attempt to install some type of security malware, then it will lock down your computer and prevent you from opening any applications, reporting each one of them is infected, to get rid of the software it will ask for your credit card information, this is simply a scam which will not remove the software.
If you get such a popup the safest thing to do is close down your internet browser and then delete all temp files and cookies to ensure nothing has been downloaded and kept as a temp file.
It’s also worth scanning with your trojan virus remover, frequently
