Trojan horses, together with ransomware threats, are the most dangerous malware pieces out there. Given the fact you are reading this article, it is pretty safe to say that you are currently infected with a Trojan. But are you familiar with how exactly these infections operate? Unlike ransomware threats, which reveal themselves to you pretty much immediately after having slithered in, Trojans are much more silent. Your computer may be infected for weeks before you realize it. It goes without saying, this is a very unpleasant situation.
Trojans are incredibly dangerous. After all, they share the first place in the “worst possible cyber infection” category with ransomware. And we all know what ransomware pieces do. They encrypt all of your data, lock it and then demand a hefty ransom sum from you. Trojans are just as destructive and the more time they spend on board the more problematic they become. Unless you act fast, the pest you are stuck with will go out of hand and then it might be too late.
Sppextomobjhook.dll is the name of the Trojan that managed to infect you and, of course, you were left oblivious to its entering. You may have just noticed it now but you cannot be sure when exactly it slithered in. Once in your system, the pest doesn’t waste time but starts corrupting it. It makes all kinds of modification without any authorization of yours.
The Trojan does what it sees fit and your preferences are not taken into consideration. For example, the virus messes with the system registry and changes settings behind your back. Moreover, it alters and/or damages important system files and as a result from that you cannot use many of your programs. But don’t think even for a second that this is all. In fact, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
The pest has a long list of issues prepared for you. It also serves as a backdoor to other cyber threats. Usually, to greedy ransomware pieces. The Trojan helps ransomware viruses to get distributed online and to infect victims. And yes, this could happen to you as you have the Trojan currently on board. Are you willing to keep this infection so it could help another one to get in? And not just any infection. We are talking about ransomware.
With this Trojans in your system, your situation is pretty bad already. You don’t have even a single reason to keep the pest. All it does it causing problems. It messes your computer settings as well your browser ones. Because of the Trojan`s presence, your browsers are lagging and crashing all the time.

Problems just keep pouring one after another. And, to top it all, aside from wrecking your PC and putting you in danger of being infected, the Trojans also spies on you. That’s right, it monitors your every move that you make online AND it catalogs everything. It has access to your browser information, to your usernames and passwords, etc. It may even get its hands on your personal and financial data.
After collecting all this information the Trojan sends it to its crooks. Well, so surprise there! Do yourself a huge favor and tackle this parasite. Do not put your privacy on the line by keeping it and do not let crooks get a hold of you. To remove the Trojan permanently, follow our removal guide at the end of this article.

But do you know how you got stuck with Sppextomobjhook.dll? It is pretty clear that you didn’t download it on purpose and yet, here it is. How? Well, Trojans, like all infections, rely on trickery and deceive. They use techniques to dupe you and pray for your distraction and carelessness. For instance, the pest could have been sent to you via spam email and you did the rest by blindly opening it. Suck emails from suspicious or unknown sender must be deleted right away. Another popular infiltration methods include Exploit kits (EKs) and freeware/shareware bundles.
Be extra careful when installing a bundle. Always opt for the Advanced settings in the Setup Wizard instead of the Basic ones. They take more time but they also give you complete control over the installment process. Also, do not rush this process. Double check what you are agreeing to and what you are giving green light to. A little distraction may cost you a lot. Moreover, avoid shady pages, third-party pop-ups, suspicious program updates, etc. Infections lurk from everywhere and it is your job to protect your PC and, most importantly, your privacy.
