I'm not sure if this is a Firewall forum topic exactly, but if anyone can please help?

I had a file that somehow became installed in my Symantec files (not positive if that's the file it was in). The file was SNDWARN.EXE

This file kept popping up with a reminder saying I needed to update my internet intrusion detections (with 2 large buttons - "update now" or "later")

I completely removed any Norton products (Norton website - uninstall tool), but the file remained!!

I went into safe mode to search around, ran my anti-spyware programs, reg clean, reg vac, spybot and adaware and still nothing. When I tried to go back into normal mode, my resolution remained with the same look as safe mode, and now I can't change my resolution back and there have been modifications to my registry by the looks of it and my startup tab in msconfig. My monitor driver seems to have a problem now too. I can't change any color settings or resolution.

Please help!!? Any suggestions, anyone?

I can also post my Hijack this log, if that will help.

Do you want all symantec products removed from your machine?

If you do and have already tried to get rid of it all also delete the directory c:\program files\symantec.

I would also download new video drivers and install them and see if that fixes your problem with the video card.

If you would like you can post a Hijackthis log to see if there is anything fishy.
