I was directed to this site by a friend, and I was told the content can be trusted. I have a virus on my pc and I'm at the point where I'm ready to purchase a new pc if I can't fix the issues I'm having soon.

I have the Alemod virus on my pc and I recently installed Norton '05 to fix, and these efforts were unsuccessful. Norton displays pop-ups with High Risk Warning, and Trojan.Alemod is identified, but access to files is denied. In addition, my desktop has been changed with the Your Computer is Infected, click here... Overall, the pc is very slow and it locks up on a regular basis.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried to run Norton from safe mode? Have you checked the Norton site to see if they have a specific removal tool for that virus?

No specific tool for this one acklan but Symantec recommends running NAV in safe mode as you suggested.

I had a nasty bug a wild back that I had to go into the registry and ferret out. Had to change the premissions from read only to full access so that AVG could remove it. uuh oh...here is the disclaimer.
DO NOT TRY THIS WITHOUT EXPERT KNOWLEDGE!
I feel better :thumbsup:
I would recommend you go to the HighJackThis Forum and follow all the instruction. Read all of the pinned POSTs first.
POST your log in the HJT Forum only. If you POST it elsewhere it will delay you receiving help.
Do not modify your log. You could damage your system to the point you will need to reinstall everything.
Lastly. Wait. Everyone here is a volunteer. A HJT Team Member will get to your POST log as soon as possible.

EDIT: I almost for got the link to the HJT Forum.. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/
