Rid norton as much as you can then install AVG Antivirus and also a program called CC Cleaner. Run both and rid everything with that reference.

For safety, totally back up now onto CD, etc everything you want to keep from the computer (photos, etc). Disconnect your modem beforehand.

Once installed and Norton gone, restart in safemode and run AVG and Ccleaner if it lets you (be careful what you delete manually on Ccleaner, make sure you rid the dodgy looking start-up programs)

Thanks for all you help Mod- Ill blitz it tomorrow

All sorted now - about 7 trojans + loads of other mal crap found - the pleasure of having a communal PC in the office!

Important point though - Norton (cost £50 pa) found none of this and says the system 'was secure' only to go on and send thousands of Spam emails

I will never use Norton again

Thanks for all your help Mod - really appreciated

Well, this is awkward!

The Shed End Forum relies on revenue to pay for hosting and upgrades. While we try to keep adverts as unobtrusive as possible without pop ups, we need to run ad's to make sure we can stay online and continue to keep the forum up, as over the years costs have become very high.

Could you please allow adverts on this domain by switching it off. Some of the advert banners can actually be closed to avoid interferance of your experience on The Shed End.

Cheers now!
