No, I've had problems with Norton in the past being incompatible with my modem and ISP, so I actually had no virus software on my computer before I got this virus.
After I realised I had a virus, I then tried a number of times to install Norton Internet Security 2006. By using the Windows XP system restore tool (which took me back to 2 minutes after I got the virus), I did manage to get Norton installed, but it would not run. It had not installed properly. Eventually I removed Norton all together.
This virus was my own fault. I downloaded a photoshop tool using the file sharing torrent tool Azureus.
Once I downloaded the tool and run it, the virus infected my computer instantly.
Since the virus I have installed AVG Free, then removed it and purchased AVG 8.0
I've basically continually run AVG 8.0 since then. The only virus software on my Windows XP machine is AVG 8.0.
I will not try and run Combofix again until otherwise advised.
I've actually done a great many things to try and solve this, but I do believe I had uninstalled Norton and AVG Free before installing AVG 8.0. I'm happy to uninstall and reinstall if needbe.
