Hey everyone, I think my HP notebook has a virus. We have an eMachines desktop that has Norton on it, but cant figure out how to scan the notebook which is on the same router. It will scan the shared docs but nothing else. I have tried to download Norton to the notebook and it locks up in the middle of it, every time. So I think Im in big trouble there, but I know we've scanned the notebook from a different desktop, but cant for the life of me figure out how to do it.

If anyone knows how to scan the entire hard drive on my notebook from my desktop, Id appreciate hearing for you.

Thanks!!

Norton won't do that. At least not unless you want to pay $1000/yr network licence.
Try one of these.

AVG 7 Free Edition (I personally use)

Avast Home Edition (Also free for personal use)

These are full featured Antivirus program that are free for personal use.

Hello Rob and Candy and welcome to BC.

You can also use these online scans. They are very effective and its always a good idea to use more than one anti-virus.

Housecall Use Autoclean.
Panda ActiveScan
Bitdefender Check off Autoclean.
eTrust Check off Cure when the scan is done.
