Reinstalled Norton AV on replacement Hard disk. Now get a message on start up that Symantec identifies as W32Klez. The removal instructions are hard to folow - is there any other easier removal?

if your Norton Antivirus could not remove the Klez virus (which has appeared long along), but it is strange that Norton Antivirus failed to automatically remove the virus that it decteted. Wondering if they are too busy introducing bloatware and neglected on the basics.

You may want to try this one-off virus removal tool from Avast click here, which should hopefully detect and cleaned many of the known virus (including Win32:Klez and its variants) that were already identified and treated by experts in the antivirus community.

Have not seen the prior reply while I was preparing my message.

Anyway, you could take it as a bonus that the one-off virus removal tool from Avast offerred the bonus of detecting/removing some other popular virus besides the Win32:Klez, just in case they had already creeped into your system.
