    RealBlackStuff, I read all the posts and have done what I can. One problem I have is I'm behind a firewall. I can't run any online scans. The definition updates don't make it through. The Norton AV is latest definition. I run it in safe mode and can delete what it finds. Tell me if this is not enough. I will have to reimage it if I can't get rid of the virus. I was able to run rootkitrevealer and it didn't find any rootkit problems. Is it correct that hacktool.rootkit is a trojan?

    Thanks for any help.
