  1. i have just got norton and i instaled it and updated everything and it was fine for a while. i turned on my computer and a message came up saying that there was a virus i clicked ok and then like a second later another message came up saying that there was a virus. it just wont go away. i have gone to the source but the file isnt there. everytime i click ok and the messege pops up the and file is always diffrent but same location.
    it says the virus is in C:\windows\TEMP\X.tmp

    im not even sure if that will make sence to you but any way.

    Download and run the ccleaner programme from HERE. It should get rid of your temp files.

    You can also try and get HJT to get rid of that file on reboot.

    If you run HJT and click on the config button, followed by the Misc Tools button. You will see amongst other things a button that says Delete file on reboot. If you click on this, a windows appears, where you can browse to the file you wish to delete. Open the file and HJT will ask you if you want to restart your computer. Click yes. The file should now be gone.

    Regards Howard :)

    Let us know how you like it. A lot of people here have been disapponted with Norton after 2003. I use systemworks 2003 with no issues - actually it's pretty good. Norton is known to e a system resource hog, but you have some control over it.

    I don't know anyone with 2006 edition.

    A new AV would be better but u would have to pay again for it(I'm assuming u paid for ur Norton AV). NOD32 is a good choice. I have been using it for over 3 years and its rock solid. It doesn't eat too many resources, updates in a flash and it doesn't allow anything to get in. Norton is good, but not the best, as they like to proclaim.
