Hi follow these instructions
Follow these steps to download and run the tool:

  1. Download the FxGaobot.exe file from: http://www.symantec.com/content/en/us/global/removal_tool/threat_writeups/FxGaobot.exe.
  2. Save the file to a convenient location, such as your Windows desktop.
  3. Optional: To check the authenticity of the digital signature, refer to the "Digital signature" section later in this writeup.

    Note: If you are sure that you are downloading this tool from the Security Response Web site, you can skip this step. If you are not sure, or are a network administrator and need to authenticate the files before deployment, follow the steps in the "Digital signature" section before proceeding with step 4.

  4. Close all the running programs.
  5. If you are on a network or if you have a full-time connection to the Internet, disconnect the computer from the network and the Internet.
  6. If you are running Windows Me or XP, turn off System Restore. For instructions on how to turn off System Restore, read your Windows documentation, or one of the following articles:

    How to disable or enable Windows Me System Restore

    How to turn off or turn on Windows XP System Restore

  7. Locate the file that you just downloaded.
  8. Double-click the FxGaobot.exe file to start the removal tool.
  9. Click Start to begin the process, and then allow the tool to run.

    NOTE: If you have any problems when you run the tool, or it does nor appear to remove the threat, restart the computer in Safe mode and run the tool again.

  10. Restart the computer.
  11. Run the removal tool again to ensure that the system is clean.
  12. If you are running Windows Me/XP, then reenable System Restore.
  13. If you are on a network or if you have a full-time connection to the Internet, reconnect the computer to the network or to the Internet connection.
  14. Run LiveUpdate to make sure that you are using the most current virus definitions.

Apparantley i have a trojan worm in my lap top, i have norton and caled them they say i have a problem and my laptop is out of warranty and i have to purchase another one is this true


NO, you do NOT have to purchase a new laptop.

What the people at Norton probably meant was that your Norton anti virus software has expired and you need to purchase a new anti virus subscription from Norton if you want them to help you.

There are however other anti virus software manufacturers out there that are free and/or will allow you a 30 day trial period.

To help you clean out the worm in your system:

  • Find out the name of the worm you have on your system (your norton program will tell you this).
  • Go to this page: http://free.avg.com/us-en/virus-removal
  • Click on the link that has the same name as the worm on your system (don't worry about the I-worm or W32 part of the name, e.g. if your worm name contains navidad you want to click the I-worm/navidad link or if your worm name contains bugbear you want to click the I-worm/Bugbear.C link etc.)
  • Follow the instructions on the page you get to in order to get rid of your problem.
Hope this helps ;)

How can i remove w32 blaster worm


If there is w32 blaster worm on your computer, it seems there is not only this worm but also other problems. You can use some anti-virus software such as Kaspersky or Norton to remove the w32 blaster worm. If it doesn't work, reinstall operating system. If you are in emergency and not a computer expert, I suggest you do this by some software. Some software can check your computer health first and report your computer status including software, hardware, security and stability. Then you may follow simple steps to remove all viruses and fix other hidden errors.
