I have 2 infected files and nortons can not repair, quarentine, or delete. What info do you need to help me fix. I tried running nortons AV in safemode and it did not help.

I have Hacktool.HideWindow in hex.exe and IRC.Backdoor.Trojan in rundll.exe

Just wanted to add something for everyone out there in the community. These things do happen and hopefully someone can learn from my mistake. I did this to myself. I downloaded an email attachment and when I was doing it realized I should not have done it. It looked legit and thought I knew where it came from. Looking back realized that I could have prevented it with a bit more thought. So hopefully someone will learn from my mistake. Remeber to surf safely.

"backdoor" implies that your computer was/is completely compromised. All passwords should be changed while using a different computer. Any financial info such as credit cards, paypal, banking, etc. is at risk and should be monitored closely.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
