Hi, new to forum, can anyone help me remove Hacktool. Norton anti virus found it and can't remove it. did a scan for the file but Windows can't find it. Norton says the following.... [remview.php] inside of [c\windows\websebsvr.part2.rar]. All though Norton claims this a high risk, on their site they say low risk?? Any advice. Thanks

Welcome to BC sizzlefrizzle

remview.php is inside a compressed .rar file located at C:\Windows\websebsvr.part2.rar. RAR is a proprietary file format for data compression and archiving. Some anti-viruses programs encounter problems with compressed files. Have you tried searching for that file and deleting it?

I doubt it. I could not find any info on that file when I checked. Nothing on a part1 either.
