The short answer is that your computer is infected with spyware that actually infects Norton itself, so that it cannot remove it. it is Fixable but its complicated and I'm unsure how much you know about computers. It might even be easier to reformat.
but if you do the following it will fix it.
(Disclaimer: if you are not comfortable with the following please get a professional or don't attempt. The easiest way is to reformat)

also i personally use the following sites on a daily basis and stand by them 100%

Get the Pocket Killbox from here:

http://bleepingcomputer.com/files/spyware/KillBox.zip

Unzip the file to your desktop.

Go offline until this is completed (you may wish to print these instructions).

Boot into Safe Mode and do a search for these files:

guninst.exe
popup_bl.dll
systr.dll
svrhost.exe


Delete any found, and then do a search for param32.dll

Run Pocket Killbox and paste the full file path of param32.dll in the box and click on Delete on Reboot. Click on the button with the red circle and an X in the middle; you will get a message saying File will be deleted on next reboot, Process and Reboot now? Click Yes to reboot. (Note: the 'file path' will be something like C:WINDOWSSystem32param32.dll)

Delete any unwanted icons from your desktop.

Empty your Recycle Bin.

Go to AddRemove Programs in your Control Panel and remove ADVANCED SEARCHBAR, if found.

Scan with hijackthis (download it here), and have it fix the following entries:

R1 - HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,Search Bar = about:NavigationFailure
R1 - HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,Search Page = about:NavigationFailure
R0 - HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,Start Page = http://www.newgenlook.info/ad/ad0278/

Be sure all windows are closed, other then hijackthis, before hitting Fix checked.



A few more things need to go.


1. Open a DOS box by typing "command" (omit the quotes) in the "Run.." option under your Start button menu.

- At the command prompt in the DOS window, type the following command:

regsvr32 /u C:WINDOWSSYSTEMHIJENCA.DLL

Close the DOS window after the command command completes




2. Run HijackThis again and have it fix:

R1 - HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,Search Bar = about:NavigationFailure
R1 - HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,Search Page = about:NavigationFailure
R1 - HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,Search Bar = about:NavigationFailure
R1 - HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,Search Page = about:NavigationFailure
R1 - HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerSearch,SearchAssistant = about:NavigationFailure
R0 - HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerSearch,SearchAssistant = about:NavigationFailure
R1 - HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,HomeOldSP = about:blank
R1 - HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain,HomeOldSP = about:blank
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O2 - BHO: ToolHelper - {CDEEC43D-3572-4E95-A2A5-F519D29F00C0} - C:PROGRA~1ADVANC~1TOOLBAR.DLL (file missing)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {4948A8E1-BE50-11D9-9E02-000855D4C36C} - C:WINDOWSSYSTEMHIJENCA.DLL
O18 - Filter: text/html - {7CDBC5E3-BE71-11D9-9E02-00084A455E60} - C:WINDOWSSYSTEMHIJENCA.DLL
O18 - Filter: text/plain - {7CDBC5E3-BE71-11D9-9E02-00084A455E60} - C:WINDOWSSYSTEMHIJENCA.DLL


3. Search your system for the C:WINDOWSSYSTEMHIJENCA.DLL file and delete it if it still exists.


Sorry but this particular virus/spyware has no real quick fix and it has many many names.

How to create motion across the screen?


Step 1
Create a small circle to the left in the Stage area. Do this by selecting the circle tool from the left toolbar. Draw the circle in the Stage area.
Step 2
Select the Arrow tool from the left toolbar. Double-click on the circle to select it.
Step 3
Now we have to convert the circle to a symbol. When the circle is converted to a symbol we can create instances of the circle. From the top menu choose Modify > Convert to Symbol. Name the symbol "Ball", and select OK.
Step 4
Go to Frame 10 in the Timeline. Do this by clicking the gray field below 10. Then right click in this field. Choose Insert Keyframe. Keyframes appear as circles in a frame. This operation duplicates the image.
Note: A keyframe specifies changes in an animation. You create keyframes at important points in the Timeline and let Flash create the frames in between.
Step 5
Select the circle and move it to the right a couple of inches.
Step 6
Click on the Timeline any place between Frame 1 and Frame 10. Then right click and choose Create Motion Tween.
Step 7
Choose Control > Test Movie from the top menu to test your Flash movie.

Printing jobs are coming out with the text off the page


Some blank paragraphs may have spilled onto the last page. To view paragraph marks (paragraph mark: The nonprinting symbol that Microsoft Word inserts when you press ENTER to end a paragraph. The paragraph mark stores the formatting you apply to the paragraph.), click Show/Hide on the Standard toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, press ALT and then SHIFT+F10.). If you see paragraph marks without text on the last page of your document, delete them. Then click Print Preview on the Standard toolbar to view the document as it will be printed and verify that there is no longer a blank page at the end of your document

How to use my built-in web camera for my medion laptop


hold down the Fn button and press the button with a camera symbol (its F9 on mine) at the same time.

The camera symbol at the bottom right of the screen should show a white circle rather than a red cross. this means it is switched on.

it bugged me for weeks!!
