Norton Antivirus has just discovered the above spyware on my computer.

I have checked but no knew programmes are on my machine. How might I get rid of this - they have been unable to repair or delete. How can I deal with this?

Download Adaware, install, update and run a scan with it, it should remove it for you, Eileanbeag. click here

A-Squared click here is another application that should get rid of it also.

Have run both these programmes but Adware.cydoor is still being detected by Norton

Have found pathway for file and deleted it in Windows Explorer - will I need to do more?
