I have the whole Norton set and it works good. If you can't get rid of the virus with any kind of virus scanner, looks like you might have to erase your hard drive.

Well i just ran a virus scan thorugh my computer last night and it picked up one virus and now its gone. Then i ran the spybot search and destroy and it got rid of ooo id say 30 or 40 things, but the computer is still slow and pop ups are always coimng up.........

hmmm
i had a virus sort of like that

i forgot what we did

i think we ran a defrag then did spybot search and destroy once more.

if that doesnt work, back up all your data, slick the drive, and start all over.

Run a virus scan, and see if it comes up with any names of viruses that it can't get rid of. If you google most viruses, you get a million ways to get rid of them. Also, turn off System Restore, then do a Virus scan, then restart the computer.

AVG is better than Norton.

Adaware is a great spyware & malicious ware removing tool.

Spybot S&D, Also a very good spyware removing tool.

Well, what do you think of backin all my impotrant stuff i want up and then delte EVERYTHING and then start all over?

If you have a CD burner or portable Hard Drive / Flash Drive than those options are available. Also, depending on on your computer, if you have multiple hard drives you could move everything to a secondary drive, or partition a section of said drive (or quarter off) and format a specific portion of the drive. This is all advanced though...heh Tounge
