Hi,

Last hope before having to reformat and start over. Norton detects packed.generic.200 virus can't remove file in system32: uacinit.dll. Even in Safemode. Tried using malwarebytes and super antispyware as well to no avail. It will disable norton after reboot and try to prevent the other the other virus softwares from running. Had to rename malwarebytes exe. to get it to run. This seems to be really nasty... worried about integrity of my machine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Your version / edition of Windows?
Is Uacinit.dll the file that Norton is flagging? or are there more files tagged, and if so, do you have a list?

Can you copy and paste a copy of the MBAM log into a reply ?

You had better do a wipe and clean install of Windows. The infection is quite serious.
See what Suebaby41 had to say in another case that had this infection

Here is a couple of guides on how to do a new (fresh) XP setup
"Guide to upgrading (or new install) Win XP at Aumha.org by Gary Woodruff "
http://aumha.org/win5/a/xpupgrad.htm

Step-by-Step: Clean installing Windows XP (Interactive Setup)
http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_sg_clean.asp

These assume you have the Windows XP CD and not a manufacturer's or OEM Restore CD (for the latter see it's documentation)

Tips:
have your pc disconnected from the internet during setup.
When setup is complete, install your Antivirus program.
Then and only then, connect pc to internet, and then be certain to visit Windows Updates. Get current with MS updates !
