Hi, I found that I had Virtumonde and some other infected files recently. I cleaned them out using the Yahoo toolbar antispy, but they came back; I cleaned them out using I think it was Spybot SD, but they came back, I tried deleting the files with Adaware but they came back. I couldn't initially clean the files with Norton antivirus as the infections weren't detected, but I changed some settings, and Norton antivirus found the files. I quarantined the files with Norton antivirus, then tried running another AdAware scan and deleted the files with AdAware. So I thought everything might have been fixed, but now, even though I run Firefox, sometimes odd stuff happens -

1. When I turn on my computer, it takes a while to start up. (Maybe I just didn't think about it before)
2. All my icons on my desktop disappear for a second or two sometimes.
3. A LOT of Internet explorer windows open up on my toolbar. Looks like adtgrt, sagispul.com, but more recently, it's just some internet address like 8x.xx.xxx.xxxx or such. I couldn't get a read on it.

So I followed some of the "Preparation Guide For Use Before . . . " instructions and here I am.

I do have Norton Ghost installed on my computer, I don't mind wiping out all my files. But I have three files, and when I try to restore using Norton Ghost, Norton Ghost only allows me to select one of the three files to "restore". That is, I don't know how to use Norton Ghost . . . tried reading the manual, but I must be missing something.

If someone can advise me how to use Norton Ghost or how to remove all this malware, it would be much appreciated.

By the way - Norton Antivirus doesn't find anything except what I think is indicated as a Verizon Services toolbar that I can't remove.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

I just found out that I might not get a reply for a while as I posted a reply to my original post; could I have this post and the preceding one deleted? (Or just delete the whole thread)
