    Virus or not?

    Hello! Who knows that it can be?
    In antivirus Symantec resident protection is not disabled, but the window of yellow colour with the message "a virus protection periodically emerges is disconnected". The antivirus is refreshed permanently and does not find any virus.

    You should look at the event log and see if you can spot anything there.

    Personally I dont recommend that you use Symantec antivirus software. Regularly it reports wrong and then delete some system files, thus your system crashes. I dont install any antivirus software on my computer. If you dont visit some porn sites, then your computer is safe. The hackers would prefer to know what the FBI information is.

    You have seen one too many movies. Normal websites can be infected with worms, malware and trojans, heck mySpace got hit a year ago through embedded adverts and infected several thousand machines. It isnt just the seedy underbelly of the web which gets infected. If you read email, install software, look at documents, browse the web or anything else you can be infected.

    As for wanting to know what the FBI are doing, thats rather laughable, most hackers that are whitehat only do it to detect problems and help get them fixed, the blackhat ones wouldnt care what the FBI is doing, they are more interested in credit card fraud, stealing and selling info and turning peoples machines into zombies.

    It can be virus threat. You can verify it by installing any free antivirus (AVG, avast).

    You would need to remove norton first, installing multiple antivirus guards is suicidal.

    You can install a free trial from any leading Antivirus company such as Avira, Kaspersky, Nod32 or BitDefender. Run a full system scan in your computer and check if it is really a virus or just norton screwing with your computer.

    I agree with Alex. There's no point to install multiple antivirus in one single computer. It doesnt make the pc protected instead all those antivirus installed will clash and fight for domination. Just stick with one anti virus will do

    Yes you are right. First remove the current antivirus software and then install another.

    Download kaspersky 2010 and activate it. Then scan your computer...kaspersky will delete all the virus for you. I have just deleted 32 virus + trojan + worms today with kaspersky.

    Interestingly my client is using AVAST4 and that antivirus seems to have low IQ lol. What it does was storing the those infected files but unable to find idea how to remove them. And in fact some of them left undetected and as well escape. So the virus run riot and crash the boot system making it unable to enter windows. I need to do chkdsk /r to restore the integrity of his disk system otherwise the disk is unaccessible

    I suggest you replace your Norton with Nod32, that's what I use and it worked out pretty good so far.

    You should go for a quick scan and would go for the setting,perhaps it is something wrong in the setting.

    Uninstall Symantec and replace it with another antivirus (Avira,Kaspersky,Avast). Run a virus scan and remove viruses if these problems exist.
