You are going to need to run an antivirus program that runs before the operating system starts..if you can, try going online on another computer to search for a program called VBA Rescue..this program loads LINUX into your computer and them searches and destroys the virus' . I have had much success with this program as worms are very hard to remove...I wouldn't even try to run your laptop as you may cause unrepairable damage to the laptop..if you need additional assistance...you can email me at jcameo7270@yahoo.com

what is symantec antivirus??????????


Symantec/Norton AntiVirus (SAV for Windows, NAV for Mac OS X) is a virus protection program distributed by the Symantec Corporation, offering effective protection features, including infected file quarantine, online virus protection updates, and an automatic scheduler. SAV/NAV is designed to start running as soon as your computer's operating system starts. It runs in the background, checking all vulnerable files for possible infection by malevolent programs called viruses and worms. SAV/NAV does this by looking for the identifying signatures of these worms and viruses and comparing them to known viruses for which it has files. When it detects an infected file, it notifies you and manages the infection according to your preferences.
