Hello,

I may be asking this in the wrong place. I am not used to this. First, i do not know much about computers. Each time I restart my computer the Noton virus warning pops up " W32. gaobot.SN". My Norton scan does not pick this up (Norton 2005 version). I have started up in the safe mode, and have run the scan but to no avail. I did some searching on google and came across some info. re: scrbmk.exe and languard.exe files. When I run scrbmk.exe, the Norton virus warning pops up. I went into my Windows directory, and saw the scrbmk.exe file. Is it safe to delete this file from the directory?

Please help.

regards, Ndlovu

scrbmk.exe - Added by the Troj/Dloader-VP downloader Trojan.

Run these online virus scanners:

Also this online Trojan scanner:
TrojanScan

The BC startup database indicates it is added by a trojan, found in the Windows installation folder. Try removal the steps outlined in this Tutorial:

Thanks a million. Problem solved (I hope), no more irritating Norton Antivirus threat alert pop ups each time I restart.

Have a good day.
