hi guys-

norton seems to be detecting and blocking top-banners.com and trojan.vundo. i ran full system scans with both norton and ad-aware all to no avail. i removed various viruses/ trojans, but cant seem to get rid of theses two problems (im pretty sure i have other viruses/trojans as well). everytime top-banners is blocked by norton, i notice that a new startup item is installed. i go to msconfig, startup and uncheck the new startup item. i am running windows xp. i believe the problem began when i accidently clicked on a link on some website. please help. thanks in advance.

ps i have tried to follow the self help guide for top-bannerrs.com on this site, but cant detect O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QBRSR] C:\WINDOWS\QuickBrowser.exe

Welcome rxbwk

Follow the the instructions for using Vundofix in BC's self-help tutorial "How To Remove Vundo/Winfixer Infection".

Then download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free in "SAFE MODE".

thanks quietman. vundofix seemed to have removed some files, but norton is still detecting and blocking intrusion attempts from top-banners.com.
