If this is has just got on your system recently, try doing a system restore. I have found this to be successful in the past.

If that doesn't work there are quite a few sites giving removal instructions. I have linked one below but not having had the virus myself, cannot qualify if it is effective or not.

If this works, can you rate this as a fix so that other people will be able to either use or ignore it.

Thanks

Run the Norton Removal Tool to remove your Norton Anti Virus:

Norton Removal Tool

And then install Norton Anti Virus 2011 and activate it with your 2008 Product Key:

Norton Anti Virus 2011

When you say you have problems with a lot of Virus then install in safe mode and do there a full scan.

I cant uninstall norton antivirus 2008


Norton Anti-Virus 2008 was made to not be uninstalled. It had integrated itself into your system files preventing Windows Installer from removing the anti-virus machine. Symantec has made this tool available to remove the product. However believe me when I say traces of Norton will remain until the hard-drive is reformatted.

http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

Once you remove Norton, I highly recommend you stop using Symantec products and check out ESET's product line of Anti-Virus and online-security tools.

Virus


Install an updated full version of antivirus. Your antivirus might-be-out of date. I recommend you to use avast or avg 8. They will remove all the viruses they detect from your system. But remember to install only one antivirus because installing more than one antivirus can clash down your computer. After installing the new antivirus, scan your computer and delete all the detected viruses. Delete also your temporary internet files, cookies, cache,etc. To do this, follow these steps:
  • Go to Start, Control Panel.
  • Network and Internet Connections
  • Internet Options
  • In the Browsing History, click Delete...
  • Delete Browsing History box appears, Click Delete All button found at the bottom.
  • Reboot your computer.

My licensed Antivirus program does not show that it is protecting my system from virus, malware, spyware


If you have purchased a copy of norton, your license key will still work regardless of whether you remove it or not as long as you have it registered on symantec.com.
Reinstall and update it and see if that fixes the problem.  Sometimes Norton doesn't detect everything believe it or not.  I had a similar problem when I was using Norton a few years ago so I changed to McAfee and I didn't have a problem anymore.  The malware went away as well.

Hi
Antivirus 2008 is an adware program - a form of virus. You should be able to get rid of it using a good antispyware program or something like norton antivirus. If you do not have a program installed I suggest you try using spyware doctor:
http://www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor/download/

That will help remove antivirus 2008. I also suggest you install an antivirus program if you do not already have one. I good free option is AVG antivirus:
http://free.avg.com/

Together these programs should help solve your problem and prevent further virus infection.

Hope this helps, good luck!
