How Do I Remove These Viruses

Hi,

After running Norton AV, I got the following report but no instructions on how to remove these threats.

First, are they harmful?

If yes, how do I remove them? When I click on them they all lead to C

C\Program Files\Common Files\GMT\___ folder. Should I just delete

the GMT folder or subfolders pointed by these threats?

Here are the threats listed as :

rk.bin - Spyware.Marketscore - Spyware found

rlvknlg.exe - Spyware.Marketscore - Spyware found

GMT.exe - Adware.Gator - Adware found

HDPlugin 1101.dll - Adware.Gator - Adware found

GatorStubSetup.exe - Adware.Gator - Adware found


Please help.

Thanks
Greg

  1. These are not viruses but spywares. Download <b><A HREF="http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=321CD7A2-6A57-4C57-A8BD-DBF62EDA9671&displaylang=en" target="_new"><font color=red>Microsoft Antispyware</A></b></font color=red> and run it to remove them.
  2. Or use the Firefox web browser instead of IE and not have to do spyware scans as often.
