Trojan horse is the most common type of malware. The sole aim of a malware is to install itself and stay on your computer without being detected or shutdown. A Trojan horse disguises itself into something that you might wish to install on your computer. It could be the promise of software that would give free access to music and movies. Or a free program that is otherwise available only if you pay .It could also be in form of an attachment sent out through mass spam email. This will usually contain in its subject a current events topic which will tempt the user to open the email and read all about it.

A type of Trojan horse known as droppers open the gates for other malware to be installed once it gains access to your computer bypassing any security if there exists one. Droppers not only affect your computer but would attack the entire network of computers.
