Hey, If any one has a fix on this I would give em a big kiss. I saw somebody on a new post today had the same problem. (Im on my other non-infected computer looking for fixes) Norton identified a virus a month or so back but could not remove it (my assumption is that the virus was preventing quaranteen). I tried to index it and it was listed as a low level security risk. However I am finding it a challange to remove. I believe it to be a backdoor virus of some sort. I tried removing it manually by a restore and disabeling backup to no avail. I made a backup with the infected partition drive and tried a wipe - same symptoms - stalling/slow computer with messed up pixels. When I tried to install another anti virus program I was blocked by the administrator. I ordered backup CD's from HP and still had the same problem with the wipe. So my thought was that it was in the partition drive. I spent a $100 and bought a new hard drive and reintalled - still same thing. Where can the virus be and how can I remove? Thank you 8).
