I may be infected with a virus. I am scanning using Norton right now and OneCare won't turn on its firewall, telling me that I am 'At Risk'.

If nessesary, could I install antivirus software like Norton on my computer using Safe Mode? Note that it is likely I have been infected.

If you need anymore information, please feel free to ask.


EDIT: Also know that recently my computer had been randomly freezing in the past three weeks. I remember I stumbled onto a website where it suddenly told me that 'MY COMPUTER WAS INFECTED'. From experience I knew it was spyware, and instead of saying YES or NO on the warning popup, I clicked the X. Norton immeditely told me I was infected and tried 5 times to remove it. Then the warnings from Norton stopped, thinking that it finally got the trojan.
