Have you disabled system restore when cleaning ?

what OS are you using ?

Have you tried going Reports, Quarantined Items and deleting anything there. Then starting a manual scan? Also make sure any restore points are turned off.

If you are getting this message from Norton whilst you are surfing choose the delete option (if available). Basically the website is trying to drop the trojan onto your 'puter. Avoid those sites.

If I have misunderstood the question I apologise.

Disconnect from the internet. Start a manual scan...reconnect when you are clean.
