Try running a scan with Norton in Safe Mode.

Hello xtower,

Please let us know how the Norton Scan in Safe Mode works out.

According to my research, this infection is a worm that is spread through removable media such as USB flash drives or through infected e-mail.

Can you let us know what you were doing shortly before Norton started flagging this infection?

Are you experiencing other issues on your computer?
