I was trying to install Norton Internet Security 2012 on my computer and my boyfriend's computer. I was able to do it fine on my computer. But before I put it on his there seemed to be some kind of virus that attacked the computer. I kept getting asked to register for WinZip and when I tried to exit, it wouldn't let me. I was able to install the program on the computer and after I performed a full computer scan it seemed that the virus was gone. But when I restarted the computer I got an error message from Norton and they directed me to try to download a Norton Power Eraser, a rootkit removal. But when I downloaded that program and clicked on it to run it said that "application was not found." I tried to manually go to my downloads and open it from there, but it asked me to open it with a program. It's started to do that, whenever I try to open something it asks me to use a program to open it, which it's never done before. I went to the Norton forums and when their suggestions didn't work someone suggested that I come here because I may have a malware problem. My boyfriend has Sony Vaio.
