Download AVG http://free.avg.com/. Run it, and it should remove any viruses. Then download Spybot Search and Destroy, http://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.safer-networking.org/en/&sa=X&oi=smap&resnum=1&ct=result&cd=1&usg=AFQjCNGbbSNum1E1cR4EmW0Tu34XJn27jA This will remove any adware, trojans, spyware, Malware, etc etc off your machine.

How will i remove the virus manually?


i hope you got norton off your system before putting AVG free on. Virus programs try to fight off other virus programs by postiong false virus claims to erase the other program. eventually they will kill your hard drive. You need a product key for a good virus protectant. Norton or CA offer good, reliable protection for your dollar. What i would do, is back up any really important stuff you have there, format your hard drive and install Vista again if you have the disc and then re-install it to permanetly delete viruses. Also your system maybe slow because VIsta needs at least a dual core processor and 2 GB RAM to work like a XP machine

I keep having problems with popups being disallowed on gaydar with my firefox browser even tho they are disabled


You need some anti-adware virus protection. You can buy it from Norton, McAfee, AVG, etc. Just Firefox browser will not protect you. However if you have a windows machine, windows Vista has Windows Defender that comes with Vista that blocks pop ups..need to get it soon before you get a bad virus.

Try booting into safe mode.
If you can, I suggest getting rid of Norton. The drivers are not compatable with vista.
Vista has a ton of issues and many types of softwhere will not run or work.
If you want a good virus software, use the new software from Microsoft.

Normally, if you gave been hit with a major Viurs I would recommend that you get all your data off and reinstall.  It is the only way of really being sure that the system is clean and fully operational.  Take a look at AVG instead of norton.
