however it was unable to remove any of it, soon after norton appears to have block many attempts to hack my pc, i panicked and immediatly disconnect my internet and began telling norton to scan for the infected files inside the temporary internet files folder.

but to my surprise, norton report the folder to be clean.

so now what? is the virus still there? what happen? i did use avg antispyware and clear out the temporary internet files folder with disk cleanup since notron found nothing, but i don’t know if it’s still there or not.

also there’s a file called syst in my C:, it’s time of creation is the same as the virus infection time, please help me oh i beg of you please help me i’m so confused…

From what i understand it only affects people who use visual studio, and by the sound of your post im guessing that you dont use it.

It doesnt seem to be a virus, but a vulnerability.

I would remove Norton completely and installl one of the good free anti-virus programs also available, then run that to see what happens.

all the stuff he ran into, i too did the same, he said he use a AntiVirus program Dr.Web to remove all the stuff, but i’m not sure, since i’ve never heard of such program called dr.web, plus i already manually remove some of the crab by manually deleteing them,[B] i still don’t understand why norton report virus in my temp folder but when i ask it to scan again it found nothing, what’s with that? same with AVG…[/B]

please post some recommandtions if you can.

many many thanks

Maybe norton removed or quarantine the infected files or you cleared the temp folder? Can you look up in View > Backup Items (or View > Quarantine) if there is any list items there?

Just download one of the good free anti-virus programs avilable on the net, install and run it as a backup to Norton.

Norton is not the best to begin with IMO, but they do spend a lot of money on promoting, marketing and sales of their product, so people just buy it thinking they got the best.
