Hi Hari

seems you didn't saw my previous solution
Why don't you use commandline approach to check the virus.
Hope you would be knowing that.
In case, type cmd in the Run box.That makes the appear .Use the command attrib to change the attribute of all files to visible,read /write able.Also system files too .
Now, check directory using the chdir command.That lists all the files in the c:/,d:/or e:/ drive .Then delete or erase the virus files that are visible now using del or erase command.

Now Make a full scan of your system .

    Dear Hari,

    It is possible that your internal antivirus is also disabbles by the viruses. Norton is known to be victim to that. If the command run approach failed, you should look at using differnt antivirus. You could scan yo8r hard drive from another motherboard as a secondary drive using Kaspersky Antivirus; it is better tha Norton in diggin them out. Scan all drives twice. be patient. After that backup your files from the healed drives. Consider reinstalling your operating stsrems once you are back on your home motherboard. Sometimes complete surgery is the best route.
