Yes, without a doubt but you will need to follow the instructions and have the latest update.
I would remove your hard drive, install another one on a temporary basis. Load Norton on the new drive and clean the other hard drive with a USB link. That way the virus cannot stay in the laptop as Norton will stop it entering whilst Norton cleans the drive.
Hope that helps.

How Norton Antivirus Works


Norton has traditional virus detection method like Signature base and Heuristics base detection, with anti-virus, anti-rootkit, anti-malware, anti-spyware etc. Symantec upgrade and releases new and more improved features with its every release. Signature based detection includes searching for knowing structure within executable code, however your computer can be infected with most new virus which signature is not known. In that case heuristics method can be use it can identify new viruses by variation of such code, in files. Malwares are very difficult to detect even for the most new anti-virus software. If you are using Norton Antivirus, you should update its data-base and virus definition every day, so that when you scan your computer, it can detect all possible threats. Some new features like SONAR, it examines the behaviour of applications to decide whether they are malicious. Various things are checked such as if the program create a desktop shortcut or create add/remove programs entry before determining the program is malicious.

Norton insight is a program that comes with the Norton 360. It improves the speed and quality of computer scan. It identifies well known files of client machine and excludes them from constant monitoring and scanning. It only scans unknown and unsecured files. Skipping the already known files helps the scan more impact.

Norton 360 introduced a very effective tool - Norton Power Eraser, it removes threats which standard anti-virus may miss. It cleans up system where malware prevents anti-virus installation. Apart from these, the key technologies of Norton anti-virus software are anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-rootkit, and pulse-update - provides up-to-the-minute updates that protect against the latest threats without slowing down your computer, firewall software - that can use for mapping and monitoring network.

I help how to remove trojan/other virus from my window 7 laptop.please help me.


Here's a fee-based service to do it for you:

http://us.norton.com/nortonlive/

To detect the threat level, you may want to try the free (& advertised on TV) web site
www.MySafePC.com, but virus removal will cost $$ - they're happy to tell you you're infected for
free, though.

Here's Symantec's list of things to do:

If you suspect that your computer is infected with a threat or you receive a threat alert, and you want to make sure that your computer is secure.

You can perform a virus scan to eliminate any known threat from your computer. Scanning your computer for threats is easy if you follow the step-by-step instructions provided in this article. The scanning process may take an hour or more, depending on the number of files you have on your computer.

To detect and remove all the threats from your computer, follow these five steps:

• Install the latest virus definitions.

• Stop all running programs and temporarily disconnect the computer from any network.

• Run the virus scan.

• Install the latest Windows updates.

• Run a full system scan once again to ensure that there are no threats.

The first step is to check whether you can install the latest virus definitions, as some threats may block your access to all the security products' Web sites including Symantec's Web site. The subsequent steps vary depending on whether you can download the latest definitions from the Symantec Web site or not.

How do I get rid of three trojans


Hi jff9 going by the level of information in the description. I assume the obvious is the updates has been performed for your antiviral (AV) software.
failing the above ... and depending on the AV software you use. I suggest have a look at AVAST. It is free to licence and good as any industry software.

also try out "trend's " HIJACKTHIS download and install. if you see anything that resembles the trojans. It can be removed.
as always ... make sure you have a good backup of your data before performing any changes when using hijackthis. Please note ... the website has a help file to assist in identifying what you should be looking for.,

I have trojan like which can affect my laptop hack password take out my credit card details.


Have you got an anti-virus program?
If you have did it remove this trojan virus?
If you have not an anti-virus program or the program cannot remove this trojan, then I recommend you format the hard drive and reinstall Windows, the laptop device drivers and your programs.
This is the only sure way to remove such a threat.
Although this is a drastic method, it is better to be sure you do not lose your money to crooks. After installing Windows, install a good quality anti-virus program and keep the virus definition files updated regularly.

Norton AV


Hello,

I generally do not recommend Norton - however they do have a decent collection of quick programs that remove specific threats that I do reference occasionally. AVG has a decent scan rate but doesn't always remove the threat completely.

Thanks for your post!

I have norton all in 1, but im still getting security alerts not from norton, telling me i have 45 threats and telling me my anti-virus will not protect me from this threat.


Make sure that you run your antivirus as soon as possible.

If you don't run it regularly, you might be out of luck. When your computer becomes infected with a virus and you don't take care of it right away, the virus replicates. The longer the problem is unsolved, the harder it will be to remove it.

This is what I would do:

Update Norton and then run a complete scan. If Norton doesn't catch all of it then we'll try a more drastic measure.

You can go to this site: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ and us The Ultimate Boot CD to fix your problem. The ultimate boot cd gives you a ton of applications to fix a variety of problems. Many IT companies have discs similar to this. It is an amazing tool that helps out a lot.

What you'll need to do is download The Ultimate Boot CD and burn it to a CD. Afterwards put the disk back into your computer and run it from startup. From there you can run the antivirus programs that are on the disk to remove the threats.

This is ususally a more effective way of removing threats like this because it gives you several programs to remove malicious software.
