    • 1: Uninstall Norton
    • 2a: either: try using Hijackthis again to create a log, otherwise use Task Manager to note down what processes are loaded (We can then identify what virus you have and how to get rid of it) [Don't forget you can send screenshots by ALT+Printscreen and pasting to a paint program etc]
    • 2b: or: download Spybotsearch and destroy or one of the others mentioned to try and deal with the infestation.
    • 3: Update your OS if it's not up to date
    • 4: either reinstall Norton or download from http://free.grisoft.com (AVG)

    Click the start button...the browser listed at the top of the list is your default browser..if it looks like a big blue lower case "e" then you using internet explorer (bad)..if says "mozilla firefox" then your default browser if fire fox.

    So we are clear on what's happening...when you click on the link I provided for combofix...what does it do?

    If it downloads..just double click on the file, say ok to the warning...and let it run...don't do anything else on your machine while it is running..as it can cause it to hang.

    http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe

    When you click this link it should go straight to the file download screen, where you press "save file". If it does anything else..let me know

    cool...Norton is fucking huge..and will probably take a long time to unintall...especially if you have viruses on your machine slowing things down. You'll have to restart your machine after the uninstall. I'll hang out and wait for your response.

    This is what I got when I clicked the link:

    Unable to connect













    Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at download.bleepingcomputer.com.








    * The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
    moments.

    * If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
    connection.

    * If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
    that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

    Then had a cigarette.
