First off, if you're going to do this, make sure you're running in Safe Mode before you try running these scans. There are a number of different products you can use, but use them in Safe Mode.

Type Symantec Scan into a search engine such as google and scan it again. Try using Norton or System Mechanic Pro 7 for it.

Spyware is a type of virus. I wanted to offer my advise. You need to turn off system restore before doing any of the above suggestions. You also need to run a program called ccleaner. Most of the programs that are listed above can be found here http://www.filehippo.com/
You need to backup your data if you can because you may lose it. Just back up your mydocuments folder unless you place your data in a different place. After you are done you need to install the right protection. I used Avast FREE for home users and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for everything else. Just Google both terms.

I have a virus on my laptop and AntiVirus AntiSpyware keeps coming up telling me enter a licence key, but i dont have one, what do i do?


That's a form of a Spyware/Malware. it will ask you to buy their product to get your credit card info,
It means that the computer is already infected.

to fix that Download Malwarebytes (free antimalware software) even the free version can remove the spyware/malware.
run complete scan and remove viruses
Download Link (http://www.malwarebytes.org/) .
Hope this helps :)

How do i fix "Application


Normally, this error message indicates either your firewall or anti-virus program is blocking the application, or you have a deeply infected machine.
Scanning your computer with trusted spyware and antivirus software may find infections that are causing the problem.

If this doesn't help trying finding your firewall or antivirus' settings and look for an exclusions settings. Add the program you are having problems opening to the list and then reinstall the application.

Spyware Protection screens keep popping up; saying that the computer is infected with different Trogans and viruses....and also requesting that you activate Spyware Protection to protect your computer. ...


Take note of the exact message you are getting and, preferably on a different computer, enter that message in a search window inside of quotes. The message you are getting is FROM the Trojan; you are already infected and you will need instructions on the removal. Entering the precise message will most likely identify the specific Trojan you have. Worst case, you may have to format your hard drive and re-install the operating system.

Malware threats


What your seeing is called Adware, they are trying to make you think you are infected to buy their software to remove it.

What you need to do:
Go to www.ewido.com a reseller of AVG, download the software and run a FULL scan once complete delete the threats its finds.
