Well, one thing.
This virus is more of something to play with your head, more then it is destructive.
What is is trying to get you to do, is believe that you are infected with something really bad, and they found it, but if you buy the full version of their program, it will fix it. Problem is, they don't have a product, they just want your credit card and bank information. (It's an ID theft scam)

Here's a couple of links that will tell you how to remove it.

A Brief History of Norton Anti-virus


Norton anti-virus is a product of Symantec Corporation. Norton anti-virus helps you to remove viruses and malicious codes from your computer, it also protect you from online threats. Symantec programmed and launched various versions of Norton anti-virus to protect your pc and Internet Security to secure your online activities from hackers.

As per history of Norton products, it's about 25 years before Norton antivirus came on the market. The name of the first Norton anti-virus was Norton Commander, released in the year 1986, served as a standard interface for DOS. This version of Norton was invented to protect DOS from malicious programs. Norton Commander was a prototypical orthodox file manager, written by John Socha and released by Peter Norton.


Norton Commander is considered easy to use based on its constant view of two file manipulation objects at once. After starting the program the user sees two panels with file lists. Each panel can be easily configured to show information about the other panel, a directory tree, or a number of other options.


When Symantec acquired Peter Norton Computing from Peter Norton, Norton starts to develop various utilities or applications for DOS, as well as for Windows. Product activation was introduced in Norton anti-virus 2004. Spyware and adware detection and removal tool was introduced to the 2005 version. The redesign main graphical user interface and homepage hijacking protection was released with 2006 version of Norton anti-virus. With the version of 2007 windows 2000 compatibility was dropped and Vista compatibility was introduced, with anti-rootkit technology. Version 2009 and 2010 released with Sonar protection, File Insight, and rogue security software tools. The latest version of Norton anti-virus is 2011, which protect your computer being infected from facebook wall and feed.

  4. Norton 360
  5. Norton Internet Security
You can also manually see other programs and rankings using the following links.
Although different surveys have different opinions, you can trust your own decisions and my recommendations.

Why will Norton not get rid of Trojan spyware on my computer?


Check if the Norton version you have is both Antivirus and AntiSpyware. Also how do you know its not getting rid of the spywares? Do you see any errors.

I would agree that your PC could be virus infected. Your Norton could not detect the virus for 2 possible reasons; 1.) your Norton is not update or 2.) the virus is "unknown" even on the most recent Norton Antivirus.
If your Norton is not updated, you must download the update and your diagnostics once again. You may also try installing a second antivirus on your PC. I may recommend AVIRA as a second antivirus for its performance and it has a FREE version that you could readily install (http://www.avira.com/en/download/).

Reinstalled os and now pc runs slow, network card does not work?


The 4 top anti-virus on planet,
G-Data
Avira
Kaspersky
Norton 2009

If you where running AVG, get rid of it as it is garbage, it is 21 out of top 20 virus software. You can download a free repair tool from Avira
also that is run is dos(before windows starts) and you would not have to reinstall the OS.

As for your drivers, just go to the mfg site and you can get all the drivers you need for the hardware on your system.
