hi thanks alot for all of your help the link you gave me first was a hotmail message(trolley's). I don't really know too much about computers is there a simpler way. Vog do you have to do a system restore for yours?Thanks alot

Sorry.

I can't seem to get the link to work correctly in here.

If you type in the address that I put in the second post into a web browser, it should show the site.

No, you don't do a System Restore but you have to turn System Restore off. This is because there could well be a copy of the virus in a Restore Point, and Norton will not be able to delete it from there because Restore files are protected by Windows.

I suggest that you print off a copy of the removal instructions click here and follow them carefully.

Oh and turn System Restore back on once you've got rid of the virus.

Trolley - Symantec links rarely post well. Go to click here to turn them into shorter links that will work.
