  1. hello,

    will someone please check my logs and tell me if i was successful in removing viruses or if they see anything suspicious? i've fallen victim to a facebook virus where various security scanners pop-up and say that my computer is infected. i've read thru the instructions of the 8 steps and have the following logs for review. since the 8 step removal, i haven't encountered any virus pop-ups and my computer seems to be running fine. i just want to make sure i haven't missed anything. your help is much appreciated!

    You have posted a log generated by "Avira".

    Your logs show numerous instances of processes by "Symantec". Is this Norton AV, (or what's left of it)?

    I only mention it since it's a really poor idea to be running 2 AV programs at one time.
