This is a common method to affect the infected device in general as much as possible so the virus can get launched each time the PC is rebooted.

The virus itself can come to the machine via infected DLL or EXE file which comes from maliciously infected email attachments, software cracks, or other malware that delivers Occamy.C directly on the machine. Trojan also can come via questionable freeware like MI-SUGAR 0.5.8,  SoraView 1.0pr4, Functional 1.2, Parnian XTension 3.0, Cribbage Plus! 1.1.6, Small Business Tracker Deluxe 2.0. Make sure to remove these applications, especially if you haven't installed them on purpose yourself.

Occamy.C is also called spyware because it allows attackers to gather data from the system or use different methods to tracks and collect data as banking credentials, logins, and passwords. In most cases, this data gets used for blackmailing purposes or in later scams.[2]

Occamy virus is the umbrella term for various trojans that has the same heuristic name. You may encounter Occamy.C, Occamy.A, or Occamy.B. However, the trojan is a complex malware which has many different purposes that may differ from developer or distributor or even the particular target. Trojan operates in the background silently, so you are not alerted about the presence of the malware. 

Occamy.C trojan drops files onto the computer and launches executables or other tasks to send gathered data, download additional files, and accept commands from the remote attacker. Thanks to this fact, you can sometimes notice suspicious processes running in the background when you open the Task manager.

When you notice two similar processes or even identical EXE files running on the Task Manager, you can try to remove Occamy.C by ending the task. Additionally, experts[3] note that when the suspicious file or process runs causing high usage of CPU and other resources, you can be sure that the process is not legitimate or safe. 

Then, you can employ professional anti-malware for Occamy.C removal. Ending the task is only a first step that allows ending the malicious background process. However, scanning the machine with Reimage or Plumbytes Anti-MalwareMalwarebytes Malwarebytes allows detecting and eliminating the malware.

When malicious code gets executed trojan loads on the system

Sources of trojans can vary as functions of such threats are decided by the developer. However, typical trojan distribution involves spam emails disguised as letters from institutions or services, companies. Emails stating about financial information, receipts, order details or invoices deceive people, and they get tricked into opening such emails with file attachments or hyperlinks.

Once the document attached on the email gets downloaded and opened on the machine or link gets clicked, the malicious script gets either launched on the computer directly or triggers macros and payload carriers that distribute trojans or ransomware.

You can avoid these cyber infiltrations by paying close attention to emails you receive and messages on social media with suspicious links or file attachments. When the email contains a document or executable attached, it should raise your attention, especially when the sender is not a familiar service or company you use at the time.
