I definitely need your help. Here is my problem description.
My desktop (Windows 7 prof 64bit with Norton Anti virus) is infected with Boot.Tidserv.
1. Reboots are successful only once in 2 or 3 times. when it fails to reboot the computer just sits there powered on but nothing happens. After a couple of times I try to reboot (by holding the power key pressed for a few seconds) it works - as in restarts.
2. once it restarts, Norton fires up and informs me that it found 3 risks and fixed them. They are all Boot.Tidserv and they have been "fixed"
3. This is going on for the last 5 days and restarts of 4 times a day - Norton informs with out fail that it has successfully removed the threat 4 times daily :-)
I was alarmed and "unplugged" this desktop from the Internet about 2 days into this sequence of events. Please help me with removing this.
FYI, I am a fairly advanced computer user and the Norton anti virus that I use is supplied by Comcast (my internet provider) for all its users.
Thanks a buch.
