I’m getting popups all the time and everytime I run a virus scan with Norton AntiVirus 2005 it’s telling me that I’ve got adware on my computer, but when I try and delete them it deletes 3 of the 4 files, but the file named yiqwkq.exe, which is a Qool.Aid threat, will not delete. So I went and found instructions on how to remove this threat from the Norton Website where I found clear instructions.
It goes on telling me to edit the registry and delete some values, but the values aren’t there to begin with, and when I search for the filename I get no results. However, I booted in safe mode and then searched for the file. I found and deleted it, but when I did another virus scan after rebooting in normal mode it’s back there along with the others that were previously deleted.
My Norton software is up-to-date as are my virus defininitions.
