It appeared to be gone as everything returned to normal and I removed it from programs, but my system flashed a blue screen and black text box before giving me my normal home screen.Norton indicates no threat and everything seems to be normal apart from system slower.Have I still got the virus? and what else do I need to do?
Norton is not effective with any decent spyware or virus, that’s just an opinion from a PC tech.
You will not know if it is gone until you scan with a few virus scanners. We have a list of free online scanners at http://pcultracare.com/free_online_virus_scans.php
You might find that your computer is free of infections or that Norton has failed yet another customer. It depends on the severity of your initial infections.
If scans show that you are free of infections, you might be seeing the infections wallpaper or active desktop right before your wallpaper is loaded. this happends due to the initial infection making registry settings selecting their wallpaper (usuall in Local_Machine registry section). By itself it is nothing to be worried about as long as you keep scanning your PC every so often.
Also when Norton expires, get something better (NOD32 is very good).
