I see these every day, note: also fixes AV 2008 and many others.

This Malware is known as "Rogue anti-virus" software.

This program will remove it: http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=5360&file=10&evp=2e0d43eb67e1e71c0b31e62c003599c0
the website that has it also has a really good antispyware program called malwarebytes

www.malwarebytes.org

once you run a full scan in this program run this program:
http://www.superantispyware.com/downloadfile.html?productid=SUPERANTISPYWAREFREE
it's another free antispyware. these are both professional grade removal software for free. I remove this stuff about 3 times a day. It seems this outbreak is the largest I've ever seen.

If you want a good protection suite that will keep it out buy a copy of NOD32 (www.nod32-av.com) another you may not have heard of, it will block this and many others before it even gets on your computer.

Go to my computer. Go into the programs folder and delete the Norton folder.

    I hate Dell sometimes for putting this in. We just brought some computers in the office and I pulled the Norton off and deleted the folders and it went away. The other thing I did is went into Microsoft.com and installed Windows One Care. I bet if you put that in, it might clean up the registry of Norton, the folders of Norton in you program files as well as hidden Norton files. In fact you might notice your computer will go faster. Its free on trial for 90 days and it isn't a hog like Norton can be with the memory. Even if you don't buy it you can still use it. It's a good deal. It's $45.00 for 3 machines.

Garmin Nuvi 360 says memory full cant reset


Connect the unit up to a PC and try deleting some of the unused text-to- speech (TTS) voices. Keep only the ones that you need. Delete any unused photos or MP3's...and also any unused vehicle icons on the unit. When the unit is booting, it loads in all of the vehicle icons allowing you to change the selected vehicle, so this too uses up valuable memory.

I think easiest way to get over the problem is to uninstall 360 and reinstall it. You can use Reveo uninstaller(Free software) to uninstall it will give you chance to get rid of registery entries for 360. Use moderate settings.
you can download software from following URLhttp://www.revouninstaller.com/uninstaller_help_page.html

Hope this helps.
