For the last 6 or 7 days, I have been having NIS pop-ups, saying an attempt to enter my compuer with the Backdoor.Bla.Trojan has been made.

Since you are new to BC, I suppose you may have missed the fact that we are a family friendly site, so we prefer to keep the language toned down. There is enough mindless drivel on the Internet already, no need for us to contribute. You may have also missed the fact that we help somewhere right around 500 people every day, and that there are very few of us to go around. I'm sure that you can appreciate (working for NASA and all), that we have standard procedures that we follow to try and move people through as quickly as we can. Most people that we get here are absolute beginners, and don't know enough just to do the basics, so that's where we start. That allows us to rule out the obvious things first. Then we can move on to the possibility that since this was first reported in 2000, that maybe it is a false positive, or maybe it is something new that has not been seen yet (which happens from time to time) and is not yet included in any definitions, and is able to evade heuristics. Firewalls are often the first indicator that things are wrong, and once we rule out the obvious, we have many other tools and techniques to utilize.
Don't you get it, there is no removal tool for the damn thing,
Well I have a $1500 home built box, and I don't work for NASA, but my system has been clean for years. Maybe you could give us the benefit of the doubt and consider that we might know what we are talking about. If there is a program trying to dial out, your firewall should tell you exactly what it is, and where it is.
I have a $7K Area 51 Alienware pc which I protect rather well
I'm sorry, are you saying that it is part of Symantec's application, as in part of an auto reminder to update the subscription?
because symantec puts it there in their system program
