I have a brand new HP laptop running Windows 7, with Norton Internet Security. After only a week, I noticed that it couldn't access the Live Update server. After contacting Norton, they found the following files in the System32 directory (7B296FB0-376B-497e-B012-9C450E1B7327-5P-0.C7483456-A289-439d-8115-601632D005A0 and 7B296FB0-376B-497e-B012-9C450E1B7327-5P-1.C7483456-A289-439d-8115-601632D005A0), and after paying $100, they removed them for me. However, it appeared to have corrupted my OS, as it showed a message on the desktop (this version of Windows is not genuine). I recovered by starting over from the HP recovery partition, and the computer booted like it was brand new again. After installing Norton, Office, etc. I kept checking if Live Update was working, and it was. However, after installing Office, Java, Adobe Flash updates, Windows updates, etc., I tried Live Update again, and it hung. Sure enough, the virus files were there again! I don't think I accepted anything from an unreliable source. The only concern was a pop up from Java for running a file called "jucheck.exe" or something that didn't say it came from Java or Sun, but did do a Java update.
I found your website after searching the web for the virus file name, and it had a discussion referring to a file called OTCleanIt that appeared to have fixed this same issue for another user. However, this file is no longer available on this site. How can I resolve this issue? And how do I know where the virus came from so I don't get it again? Norton doesn't seem to be able to block it or remove it.
