Short bio

Trojan.Agent.Trace is the generic detection for traces of infection that can’t be attributed by a specific Trojan.

Type and source of the infection

Trojan.Agent.Trace is harmless by itself, but the presence is a sign of system infection. The traces could be leftovers from an already removed malware.


Protection against Trojan.Agent.Trace is not necessary. This is merely a removal detection


Malwarebytes can detect and remove Trojan.Agent.Trace without further user interaction.

  1. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop.
  2. Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.

  5. If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure.
  6. When the scan is complete, make sure that all Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected.
  7. Restart your computer when prompted to do so.
