Start up in safe mode pressing F8 on boot up and select safe mode. When in the system under administrator there will be option for you to delete the password on your account. Re boot then enter again with no password.

My laptop keeps telling me that my antivirus and firewall are turned off. When I check my Norton, it says it is on. I also just had an instance where my computer said my version of windows 7 is not genuine...

The norton issue can be resolved for free, by calling Norton. I suggest that some question got answered wrong during install, that indicates to Windows that another antivirus and firewall system is in charge. Call Norton.

On the genuine Windows thing, you have to go online and register your version and activate the OS with Windows. Clerical in nature, since you have ligitimate version.... Still needs to happen.

Also, be sure to update the critical updates often, same with antivirus defenitions.

Remove trojan Backdoor.Tidserv!inf

Say no more mate , id get rid of norton and use something good!! Norton consumes lots fo system resources and i can guarantee that you will see such a boost in performance once you remove it. Use Bitdefender Internet Security or Eset Smart Security.

Use the norton removal tool from symantecs webbsite , it gets rid of all the registry keys , program files , etc for all norton products

As for trojan removal , follow these steps:-

First have you stopped system restore? - this will reduce the possibility that the malware is lurking there.

Now download ccleaner

and run this to clear all temporary files and restore points.

Now download the following - DON'T run yet

download and update MBAM Malware removal tool

download and update A squared anti malware

Now boot to safe mode - restart press f8 repeatedly to enter safe mode.

now run MBAM full scan reboot into safe mode and run a squared full scan.

Also download spybot search and destroy from which is free. Update to the latest definitions , apply immunization then do a full system scan and remove anything that it shows


Has it gone yet?

Also go to start >> run >> type "%TEMP%" without the quotes which should open a folder

Delete all or as many of these files as you can , you might not be able to delete all of them but try and delete most of them

Hi. My Antispy located a worm AutoIt/Renocide.gen!B.

try again..... restart pc ...try to access live update via norton anti virus software..if no joy remove norton antivirus and reinstall if you try to reinstall norton without first removing norton software will do this for you , may a better option bacause sometimes windows remove app leaves data behind which can sometimes cause problems especially with norton antivirus.
if it was me I'd wipe my pc and reinstall fresh and all software because if you make mistake with norton youre gonna end up having to reinstall everything anyway.there is a program off the net on norton site called norton removal tool ...this is just the job ...if you cant find it let me know and I will either send you the net page for it or can upload it to you via email....

Replacing Norton with anything else

Norton is a real pain, and can be a bigger pain to get rid of. First, go to and download CCleaner, and also download AVG, but save the AVG download to the desktop. After removing Norton you will be using AVG for your antivirus. Once you have the CCleaner installed, open the tools section on the left. This is an uninstaller, it works considerably better than the add/remove programs section of Windows. Remove anything that reads Norton. This is where it may get tricky, Norton has a couple of blocking programs built in that try to keep you from using another antivirus, or removing Norton. So, the uninstall may run the first try, or you may get a message to the effect of the updater is running. If you get this message, then you will need to open Norton, go into the settings, and turn off everything. Then try the uninstall again. Once you've uninstalled all Norton related programs, run the registry cleaner. Norton likes to leave a little blocker in the registry that prevents the install of other antiviruses. Noe that this is done, you're ready to install the AVG. NOTE at one point there will be a section that will install the AVG internet toolbar, uncheck this box, you don't need it, and once it's installed you can't remove it without removing and reinstalling AVG. Some finer points about AVG is very little maintenance,it updates automatically, will scan at a time preset by you, so as to not hinder your use at the time of the scan, it protects against spyware and adware along with the antivirus, and has real time internet security without using hardly any resources. I believe you will be happy with it. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
