Can someone help please!!

While browsing the internet Norton detected that my PC was infected with Trojan.ByteVerify. I donít know how Norton was able to do this as although Norton Antivirus 8.07.17C is installed on my PC it is the 2002 version and has never worked well so I had disabled it to run as my virus protection program. I just thought that Windows XP SP2 was secure enough as I am also behind a router. In any case I guess I was very wrong and Norton did find this trojan anyway.

I then ran the Trend Micro online system scan on my PC which found that I had java_bytever.b (it didnít find the trojan mentioned above). I have read a little about this and found some forums that have dealt with the virus. However they seem to have been specific solutions for that particular user. Although I havenít encountered any of the problems described in the forums that I have read I am concerned that this might be a serious problem.

At some point I also found Worm_agobot.uz but because I have run so many programs I canít remember at which point I found this worm or indeed whether a program may have already removed it.

I regularly update and run Ad-Aware, Spybot - Search & Destroy and Spyware Blaster as described at http://www.tweakxp.com/article139913.aspx and only last used it a couple of days ago. Since finding the virus I have also installed and run a couple of other programs including Spysubtract, Spycatcher, BugOff, CWShredder and A-Squared. I also have the latest version of HijackThis (v1.99).

I am also using a network in my house to which 5 computers are connected. Is this a danger for any of the other computers and will they have already been infected with the same virus?

Sorry for all the info which might not all be relevant but I thought the more I provided the better you might understand the exact problem.

Thank you in advance.

Its a definite possibility. They all need to be scanned.

What is your anti-virus program right now? The XP firewall and a router are not enough. You need to have a firewall and anti-virus installed on each computer. If that Norton doesn't update anymore then it is pretty much useless.

Yeah the norton antivuris is pretty much useless then as it no longer updates or even works properly (constant error messages something to do with res://C:\Program\NORTON~1\NAVUI.dll/navstats.htm)

So are there any good antivirus programs that i can download which will be good enough or do i have to buy one?

AntiVirģ and Free avast! 4 Home Edition are a couple of free ones that a lot of people use.

Problem has been solved... I just deleted the zip file that trend micro said was infected. I now use avast! 4 home edition as antivirus software. Now in the process of securing other computers on the network.
