Question about Symantec AntiVirus Scan Engine

1 Answer

Symantec Antivirus scans (full/quick) complete in 1-2 seconds

I picked up a malware problem (Spyware Protect 2009) somehow, and tried to run a full scan using the installed Symantec Antivirus (10.0.1.1000 version). When I start the scan it immediately completes with no files checked. I have verified the configurations and compared it to my other laptop which had the same sw installed - my old one ran normally. I have not done a manual scan since my company gave me this new computer so I'm not certain that it worked before the malware. I have removed the malware but the problem still exists.

    Full scan ran for about 3 minutes. It said scanning is completed with 24,000 files scanned. I know I have a lot more files than that. This probelm seemed to have surface within the past month.

    Symantec Antivirus 10.1.7.7000

    Following a malware infection (do not know which - now apparently corrected), Symantec Antivirus completes a Custom Scan immediately (with no files checked). Have removed with Symantec's CleanWipe and reinstalled, but the problem persists.

Nortons only protects you now, It will not fix a previous problem without sending them more money, try running Ad-Aware from Lavasoft it is free, and also download and run CCleaner they both are free and clean-up registry problems and adware plus much more.

I use xp.. i download a file in internet after that ,everytime i start the computer theres always a virus(i have avira) but cant remove it..


Keep updating avira always and install spyware terminator to check is it spyware or not because avira free version only for virus but there is something like spyware, adaware, malware etc. Just try spyware terminator, update avira and if possible install Comodo firewall and block the unknown applications connecting to internet.

Try cleaning the unnecessary files using ATF cleaner (Simple and good) link below.
