And please - remove this norton rubbish off your machine
Could just be Norton and a different AV suite may report different .
i think you may be right about norton. i wish i had stuck with what i had before. the problem is when you change over to new software you have to delete the old before running the new and there is a short period of time when you are connected to the net with no security running. except maybe windows firewall.
if it is not on my system then the solution lies with whatever organisation it is that deals with these sort of issues to act to stop it at source.
All any AV suite can do is keep an eye out for known packages and their footprint or flag up stuff that looks like but may not be .
With your old AV running you download your new AV .
Unplug from the internet remove old suite reboot and install new suite .
Run it and turn internet back on .
I am sure my last security had tools to remove anything bad it found.
the issue with the new software point is the new software usually wants you to have the net turned on to install it.
Nice people at real Norton went it and sorted all out took over an hour to do it. Hell I pay and I get it done by them
