day I was happily DL programs of kazaa aka morpheus! When i DL a file that my Nortan anti virus reports as a Trojan (NetBus) Oh well i thought it will be quarantined. Then the antivrus comes back and tells me that the file cannot be accessed and cannot even quarantine it lol.
So other than formatting or throwing my pc so far through the window that i never see it again what can i do? When im typeing it stalls and freezes and what i typed doesnt even appear after it unfreezes sometimes like its been stolen lol.
Please help urgently!! many thanx in advance

Does Norton tell you where the virus is located? Sometimes the only option is to go to http://www.pspl.com/virus_info/trojans/netbus.htm and use an alternative AV program designed to combat Back Orifice based Trojans. I used to use NAV all the time and was really let down by the software when my PC got infected by Magistr (I don't use outlook or outlook express so it had no where to go) and Norton didn't even detect it. Now I use AVG or PCcillan.

Protect your valuable data from trojans and worms with Iparmor.
Iparmor will detect and kill both known and unknown trojans. This useful system-tray utility packs a lot of punch and the known virus database can be updated daily. It has a host of tools to help protect you from Internet-borne harm. Upon startup, it scans your memory for trojan-like activity and immediately disables any suspicious tasks and reports its findings. You can restore any system critical files for the next reboot. Iparmor allows you to view all remaining currently active processes, scan currently active ports, and lists those applications that are registered to start when Windows next loads.
