Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try a System Restore or are you considering:

  • deleting completely your messed up Windows and start fresh/clean (preferably) that would mean start from scratch?
  • or would you just like to repair and hopefully revert to how it was before?
Would appreciate if you could postback likewise your Operating System, (what Windows version) and if you have access to the recovery CDs or a Windows installer CDs?

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    Before starting cleanup try using system restore to do a restore to a recent date before you had the main problem (no connectivity etc)

    To start download and install spybot from link below:


    The home of Spybot-S&D!

    After downloading do a complete virus scan, this can already sort out manu malaware and virus problems that are not managed by ordinary antivirus.

    After you finish you can leave or remove spybot, but the suggestion is to help spybot with a resident antivirus.

    Here is a good free antivirus:

    AVG Free - Download antivirus

    If that is still not enough the best thing to do is a complete backup of your files and folder on an external hard disk, and then formatting the hard disk on the computer and reinstalling system and software, that is always the best solution.

Www nortonlive com activate


Most computer professionals do not like Norton Antivirus, since it saps system resources and interferes with regular browsing activity.

If you must use Norton Antivirus, just go to the Norton Antivirus website (look it up using Google search), and follow their instructions for activation. You will be removing the program from your computer within the year, I guarantee it.

I would agree that your PC could be virus infected. Your Norton could not detect the virus for 2 possible reasons; 1.) your Norton is not update or 2.) the virus is "unknown" even on the most recent Norton Antivirus.
If your Norton is not updated, you must download the update and your diagnostics once again. You may also try installing a second antivirus on your PC. I may recommend AVIRA as a second antivirus for its performance and it has a FREE version that you could readily install (http://www.avira.com/en/download/).
