So, after a week or so of trying to figure out what's wrong with my computer, I found that I have the prunnet.exe trojan. Norton would not run so I couldn't delete it, but I downloaded AVG, had to manually update it, and I got rid of it.

Now the problem is, I'm still getting pop-ups, and Norton 360 still won't open! I've ran AVG, Malware Bytes, SUPERAntiSpyware, and they find nothing.

edit: okay, so I updated to the latest version of Malware-Bytes and that stopped the pop-ups (woohoo!), but Norton still doesn't open. Is that a cause of the Trojan, or something completely different?
