My OS: XPS SP3 MEDIA CENTER EDITION 2002
ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM: NORTON 360 2.0
I believe my PC is Still Infected, Is there anything I can do to ensure that I'm maleware/spyware/virus free, I'm am so scared to down load any program from the net to scan mt PC, I down loaded driver scan from http://www1.uniblue.com/products/campaigns...nner|2417574677
and shortly after is when Norton 360 found W32.SPYBOT.WORM
Back in August 08 i got a virus that displayed bogus anti-virus pop-ups, could not use IE7 to search the web, and probably other problems i did not notice.
I called Norton premium service and they got my PC to work , I know they made some changes to msconfig 1. set to selective startup (I have read this is not good) 2. unchecked some programs so they will not run on startup (MSA.EXE) I Suspect this is a virus, and some others. I have also found traces of MSA in the system registry, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MSA, HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.key, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MSA
On Dec 8,08 I got a pop-up MSG from Norton 360 stating that W32.SPYBOT.WORM has been found and deleted,
I reviewed info on symantec website on how to remove this virus, when i went through the registry i did not really find to many charges to the registry, but I'm suspicious about a few thing,
1. Navigated to the subkey:
In the right pane, reset the original value, if known:
"restrictanonymous" = "0" < I'm suspicious about this entry
"restrictanonymous" = "1"
2.Navigate to the subkey:
In the right pane, reset the original values, if known:
"AutoShareWks" = "0" < I did not find any of these two
"AutoShareServer" = "0"
