    Windows system restore to date prior to installing Norton.

  2. Ok thanks, it was fine around 6pm central time on dec 20th. I dont see a point for that, I see the date I can click, would I have to create a new restore point for that date?

    I don't understand your question.
  4. If it was fine on dec 20th at 6pm, what restore point do I do?

    You said you do not see a restore point for that date.
    Do you have one for 19th or prior ?
    Realizing that the further back you go, any updates to your computer
    since that date will have to be re installed.
  6. I have a restore point for dec 21,20, and the 18th.. It doesnt have one for the 19thI. On dec 20th is whem I installed norton. I need to get it to a earlier time before I installed which would be early dec 20th around 5pm or so. It doesnt have a checkpoint for that time.

    Then use the 18th.

    You might also want to consider adding more disk space to restore point logging, as it appears you can only go back for about one week or so.

    To allocate more disk space for archiving restore points

    1. Right click My Computer > Properties
    2. Click System Restore TAB.
    3. Use slider bar to change the disk space allocation for desired drive.

    My guess is that Norton was installed after the infection, but the virus successfully hid until then. If restore does not help, i suggest that you follow the other advice in this thread, and as a last resort, consider how I fixed similar :
