Hi everybody

I've been trying to help a friend with there computer and it seems they have one hell of a virus but I'm not sure. It seems to have a lot to do with Norton Internet Security(NIS), and it causing a lot of strange things to happen.

These things include:
a) When Windows boots NIS is meant to Auto run, it runs for a second and the exits.

b) When i tried to open NIS manually, it exits again

c) When i get to the program file (eg: C:Program FilesNorton Internet Security) the folder window exits.

d) The Ctrl+Alt+Del menu will come up and then instantly exit

e) The mail accounts in Outlook have been removed

f) the Internet (dial-up connection) disconnects when i went to www.symantec.com but no other sites

g) When i went to uninstall NIS the uninstall program would say "Are you sure you want to exit the uninstaller?" with a Yes No prompt upon clicking No the message would repeat.

h) The same thing would happen when I went to install a fresh copy of NIS.

Now I'm not sure what this is but if anyone has heard of anything like this and knows how to fix it please reply
