Trojan Slayer is a software program that helps to protect your computer from Trojan infections. Trojans are small programs that infect your computer and cause it to do things you do not want it to do. They are similar in nature and function to computer viruses, although there are some technical differences. They are one of the more dangerous forms of spyware.
Some Trojans send information stored on your computer, such as credit card information or your passwords, to the person who write the Trojan. This allows the person to charge things to your credit card, use your email or Internet account, or even steal your identity. (There have even been some reports that organized crime has gotten into the Trojan writing business.) Other Trojans hijack your Web browser, redirect it to sites you do not want to go to. Some Trojans use your computer to send out junk email (Spam). Some Trojans are simply malicious, hiding for a while and then erasing your hard drive contents. In short, having a Trojan infect your computer is not a good thing.
There are a variety of programs available to eliminate Trojans from your computer. Most of these work by scanning your computer, looking for known Trojans that are listed in a data file that comes with the program. The problem with this is that new Trojans are constantly being developed that can infect your computer. It takes time for the software company to study the new Trojan and add the description to its data file. Also, you your computer only checks periodically to see if a new file is available. During the time the new file is being prepared, your computer is vulnerable. Often, weeks or even more time passes between the time a Trojan infects your computer and the time it is discovered, analyzed, put into a file, and the file is sent to your computer. A Trojan can do considerable damage to you in that time. In addition, these Trojan scanner programs often take a long time to scan for specific Trojans. As a result, you normally use them periodically to check for Trojans (such as performing a weekly scan), rather than continuously.
Trojan Slayer works on a different principle. It learns what programs you use on your computer, creating a list of "good" programs. Once it has learned what programs are acceptable on your computer, you can switch to one of several enforcement modes, where it runs continuously. In these modes, Trojan Slayer blocks or eliminates any program that it has not learned is a good program. Since Trojans are just programs, this provides constant protection against ANY unknown program.
