Virus removal
I understand about restoring the computer. However, for right now, how do I rid this virus from my computer? Norton finds it, but when I click "remove" it doesn't remove it like it usually does. I'm not sure how to set up firewalls, but I'll find that out later too. Any tips about removing it from the location my computer gives me and to rid my computer of it asap?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have a look at this article on how to remove this trojan using Norton/Symantec products:

You might also want to run a <a href=”http://www.pandasecurity.com/activescan/index/”>Panda on-line scan (active scan)</a>

Hope this helps.

First, you have to make sure that your Norton Antivirus is updated and licensed. Free versions of antivirus software usually have crippled features which could only be used in its full version. This means that you have to use a latest and licensed antivirus software.

    If that doesn't work, check out Webroot's anti-virus and Sunbelt Software's VIPRE. Once you believe you have it removed, be sure to run a full scan of your system - preferably with two different tools.
