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.

What's the best internet security software


Hello,
As far as many Internet security programs are concerned they tell themselves to be the best. But according to many surveys, the results found are different. I am quoting the commulative data of many top surveys that I have found for you.
The top 5 internet security softwares in my opinion may be mentioned as under:
  1. Webroot Internet Security Essentials.
  2. Kaspersky Internet Security.
  3. Bit Defender Internet Security.
  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.

Please feel free to write to me for any further assistance.

I am following up.

Regards.

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.

Please rate if helpful.

Thanks

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.

Antivirus Problem


Hi,
heres 1 possible solution.
uninstall Norton, and Download AVG free from the internet.
Install AVG get the latest updates, and put Norton to 1 side, to use as a coaster or Beer-mat.
