This is malware that goes by several names depending on what anti-virus maker you use. Since you use Norton's, I am giving you the link from Symantec for the removal of this. http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2008-030408-1455-99&tabid=3
It can be involved but just read it, take your time and follow the directions. There are links within the directions in case you don't know how to do any of the tasks within your operating system. This should take care of your problem. It's more of an annoyance than a threat but must be dealt with. If you need further help with this just add a comment to this post and I'll be glad to help. If this helps you out please rate.

I purchased this computer, 2 gig memory last year. I had just put in Norton and it is running SUPER slow. How can I reset this computer to run normal? This is not the laptop


I have known several people who have had similar issues with norton, It seems to be quite resource hungry, if you really want to keep norton then I would suggest a RAM upgrade to give your machine more power, alternatively, you could try another antivirus, I use Microsoft Security Essentials and it works well for me.

However, check to see if norton is running a system scan, this will almost definately make your machine run slower.

Have a 3 use norton security just replaced one broken down computer which has now got vista can i still put on my norton security that I have paid for. We had 3 xp now we have 2 xp and 1 vista


Hi! I presume you a referring to Norton 360? if so it covers 3 pc's I have used mine on all 3 and registered it on a fourth when the lap top decided to blow its mind. I have heard if you try to register 360 too many times you will be locked out obviously due to pirate copiers out there, and Too right! we buy genuine so should everyone.
Hope this helps?

Norton is on my computer, I DID NOT put it there. I am running Kaspersky,. I cannot remove Norton from the add/remove on the control panel. How did this get on my computer and how do I get rid of it. ...


Norton has a removal tool on their site at:
service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039 or try:
majorgeeks.com/Norton_Removal_Tool_SymNRT_d4749.html.

This should get rid of that pesky beast.
As to how it got there I have no idea.

Trojans can be tough to get rid of, the best solution is to reinstall Windows xp, then try installing norton again. Reinstalling windows will rid your computer of whatever program or cookie that contains the trojan. Then norton should take over and keep these forms of malware at bay.
