There are two free products that my company uses and they are both great at removing not only viruses but malware also. they are Malware Bytes and Ccleaner. both can be downloaded from download.com and both are great. These programs catch other viruses, spy-ware and trojans that get past some of the best anti-virus programs and best of all they are both FREE

It is taking 15 to 20 minutes just to pull up internet explorer, computer is very slow. I have deleted a lot of unused files and ran a Norton 360 scan and it is still very slow. The Model is ELI300G


Start in safe mode with networking (hit F8 repeatedly after the boot splash screen), Open Internet Explorer, go to TrendMicro.com and run their free virus scan.

Virus Troubles


1, get Real Anti Virus Protection. Norton or McAfee. 2 all is not lost. McAfee offer several solution in what they call Stinger. Norton will scan the computer before it tries to install and will remove your problem files as will McAfee. This is basically a bogus add someone clicked on that allowed it to install and until you get it gone it's going to keep popping those false adds up trying to get you back to the hack site that gave them to you to begin with. Download Stinger from McAfee for free and run it from a floppy or USB drive or Buy Norton and do the install. In fact, you could get the free trial and install that of either of these and they will clean your problem.

VIRUS : backdoor trojan


If you are saying that Norton cannot delete the virus, then you may need to take your computer in to a local computer repair shop.

If you are simply weary to delete the virus, I will quell your worry by saying; go ahead and delete the virus.

Hi,
To be really honest, i would advise you to go for mcAfee as it will not affect processing of your pc.
Believe me, norton sometimes might create a big issue if you don't have Ram more than 1 Gb

Computer slowed down considerabily.


Check whether this is not a viral slow down. If not i suggest this

1. Give enough space to the hard drive.
2. Uninstall unused application for a long time and not needed anymore.
3. Install Ccleaner, this can clean your registry, cookies, and other junk files.
4. Defragment your drive. If you have enough space already.

How will i remove the virus manually?


i hope you got norton off your system before putting AVG free on. Virus programs try to fight off other virus programs by postiong false virus claims to erase the other program. eventually they will kill your hard drive. You need a product key for a good virus protectant. Norton or CA offer good, reliable protection for your dollar. What i would do, is back up any really important stuff you have there, format your hard drive and install Vista again if you have the disc and then re-install it to permanetly delete viruses. Also your system maybe slow because VIsta needs at least a dual core processor and 2 GB RAM to work like a XP machine
