BT broadband is an online storage and email server company so I don't think it's a virus. http://www.productsandservices.bt.com/consumerProducts/displayCategory.do?categoryId=CON-BBLIFE-I
I believe that it is your Norton Scan that has become corrupted. Norton tends to take up a lot of the processing of the computer. You may want to either upgrade the Norton :( or get a better anti-virus, like AVG or Windows Defender. Both work great and are free.

Corrupted toshiba hotkey on windows7


Not sure, but me personally, I would never install Norton or McAfee on my computer. They are nothing but core hogs and slow your system to a crawl especially when it gets close to renewal time. Why pay them to catch a virus when you can catch one for FREE? :)

This can be resolved by installing and scanning the computer using Norton 360.

Click here to download Norton 360 version 3.0

After downloading Norton 360 double click on the installation file and follow on screen instruction to install the file.
Click on skip if it ask for product key.
After installing Norton 360 open Norton 360 and click on live Update to download latest virus definition on to your computer. This will helps norton to find and heal the up to date virus.

After running live update perform complete system scan using Norton.

Note:
  • Uninstall existing Antivirus on your computer before installing Norton 360.
  • Your system performance will be little low for about 7 to 10 days after installing Norton, after this period it will become Normal.
  • This is trial version which will provide you 30 days validity but even 1 year subscription does the same task. You can install whatever antivirus if you wish to switch over.

My Sony Vaio CS Series laptop keeps freezing it loads fine and then I run norton and it just freezes and i have to keep restarting and it is a continuous cycle.. what do i do?


look`s like you have a virus problem try reinstalling your operating sistem much better than restoring with microsoft app because all viruses go there so use recovery cd to fix that

I have a samsung notepad laptop.it has no disk drive and has a trojan virus on it which wont even allow me to get onto the internet.i was given norton security with it but with no disk drive how do they...


norton should be able to scan 'flash memory', and remove mal-ware. click on my computer, choose your flash drive- right click and choose 'scan'. since norton came with your 'netbook', it should be able to clean your 'flashdrive'- do you have any usb peripheral drives connected? norton should detect, and clean them, as well! make sure you 'update' your norton definitions first- if you can! try un-plugging any peripherals, before you run it. if it cleans up- then upgrade your norton definitions, and reconnect any peripherals, and run norton on them!! norton should allow you to chose which device to check!
good luck!

Laptop freezes


"I never shut it off " Hope u r hibernating the laptop.. It seems that ur lap is junked with a lot of registery files and starup files.. so it takes a lot of memory to perform its operations and subsequently it hangs up.. and i hope u have installed norton anti viurs. this antivirus needs a lot of resources. better u install Mcafee. The best thing u can do is to install a fresh copy of windows. this will solve ur problem.. and remember keep the startup items to the min level.
