I'm running Vista Home Premium service pack 2 on my laptop computer. I have a recurring alert for the mythxpak.exe virus popping up with norton sercurity and I have no idea what it is doing to my computer. I followed norton's instructions, turned off system restore and deleted the torrent files that it said mythxpak was hiding at and did a rescan... nothing happened but it didn't show up for the rest of the day. i turned on my computer again and the alert came back up from norton that the file mythxpak.exe was a high risk virus and that security couldn't quarantine the virus, i had to take action. not too much information online and everyone said to post here on bleep so here i am. please help. i am currently dl malwarebytes anti-malware about to run a scan through again but then im not sure what else i can do??? ANY advice would be really appreciated and i hope the virus isn't spilling my info all over by now. thanks everyone!
