    Run a Malwarebytes and Norton scan....

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Nah, first get rid of Norton, then download something like: Avira, Avast, AVG, Python, McAffee, etc, then run a scan.
  3. remember to wash your hands after visiting "those" site

    Hi :)

    If you want to give advice...try good advice...

    I fix viruses EVERY day in the computer shops I own and the thought that the 3 "A"s as we call them when we see badly infected machines... your "Avira, Avast, AVG" being able to cure anything is laughable....

    We get infected machines in my shops with those 3 on AND viruses ...EVERY day...

    All the best Brett :)
  5. Yeah Avast is so bad that GDATA, one of the top performing AV products, use it as one of their detection engines

  8. No 1 software cleans every single infection out there, I don't care which one it is. Some things have to be manually removed or need a combination of tools.

    Hi :)

    That`s in YOUR opinion.... I sell NOTHING HERE to anyone, nobody apart from the Moderators know where my shops are.... thats to stay unbiased with my advice....

    So I have no interest in selling Norton to anyone here....but you are correct in one thing.... we ONLY sell Norton in my shops, for one very good reason, its the best by far, we also recommend if customers cannot afford Norton that they use MSE and Malwarebytes (the free versions)

    All the best Brett :)
  11. A quick google seems to indicate that Malwarebytes have some revoval instructions

    Always a handy bit of software to have on the hard drive:)

    Hope you manage to sort it soon.

    you'd be how surprised how much norton changed it image over the years. I admit, I had norton back in 2004 where it was slugish and used up a lot of system resources. Today, its one of the top, if not top all around antivirus and security softwares currently on the market.
  13. I can vouch for Symantec as well. From 2004 to 2008, their Norton product line absolutely sucked. Starting in 2009, they really started to clean up the product. It got faster itself, it didn't bog down the system it was installed on, and malware detection and removal was among the best. Those 5 years where it sucked though really hurt their image.
  14. Plus 1 ^

    I use Norton and the new lineup is fantastic.

    I will renew with Norton when it expires.

    i guess i fell victim to norton improving their product. went away from it long ago for the very reasons people mentioned and never needed to go back. my bad!
  16. Hi :)

    As we seem to be praising Norton...lol

    The new Norton Mobile Security for Android is brilliant... (and I don't sell it lol)

    Locate your phone, lock it remotely, wipe it remotely...

    Also its got a call and sms blocker.... so i can block all those stupid calls and texts about ppi sales etc....

    A bit expensive though at £30 per phone...

    All the best Brett :)
  17. Most Android AV apps do that, some for free. In fact I can wipe my Android phone remotely from Microsoft Exchange and Samsung Andorid phones can block texts and calls right in the OS, so it's hardly anything special.
  18. Norton is quite lean these days and last I've heard it's quite effective.

    If Norton won't get rid of it, use malwarebytes or spyhunter
  19. Most Android AV apps do that, some for free, and Samsung Android phones can block texts and calls right in the OS, so it's hardly anything special.

    Not only that the independent testing community found Norton for Android to be lacking in the Android security space with a detection rate of between 65-90% - http://www.av-test.org/fileadmin/pdf/avtest_2012-02_android_anti-malware_report_english.pdf
