Checking my computer scheduled tasks and found a number of entries called Plus-HD-4.7 followed by what looks like programmes.  Hadn't seen them before.  Went on Google and found a number of entries which indicated that I had a malware or something.  Did scans using Norton but nothing showed.  Contacted Norton who say that I probably was infected and recommended this site.   Can anyone help?

Try running Malwarebytes...doing a full scan and see what it finds.

This is classified as Adware and is potentially Malware.
 
I agree with bassfiser6522 that Malwarebytes should be run.  I would also suggest running AdwCleaner and Junkware Removal Tool.
 
 

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
 
1)  Double-click on mbam-setup.exe, then click on Run to install the application, follow the prompts through the installation.
 
2)  When the installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
 
    Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
 
    Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
 
Then click on Finish.
 
3)  MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. 
 
4)  Click on perform Quick Scan, then click on the Scan button.
 
If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
 
5)  The scan will now begin, this may take some time to complete so please be patient.
 
6)  When the scan is finished click on Show Results to display all objects found.
 
7)  Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
 
8)  Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
 
Make sure that every item shown in the results has a check mark in the box next to it, then click on Remove Selected.
 
9)  When removal is completed, a log will open in Notepad.
 
This log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of the log in your next post, then exit MBAM.
 
Important:  If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Reagardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
 
Please copy the Malwarebytes log and paste it in your next post.
 
To locate this file right click on the Start orb and choose Open Windows Explorer, then click on C: drive.
 
When the C: drive opens click on the following:  ProgramData, Malwarebytes, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, Logs.  
 
If there is more than one log, choose the log with the date that you ran scan that I requested.
 
 
If there are a large number of items found you can go into Settings and click on Scanner Settings to change the setting in Action for potentially unwanted programs (PUP) to Show in results list and check for removal.

Please download AdwCleaner and run it.
 
An image like the one below will open, click on Scan.

Once the search is complete a list of the pending items will be displayed.  If you see any which you do not want removed, remove the check mark next to it.  
 
Click on Clean to remove the selected items.  
 
You will receive a message telling you that all programs will be close so that the infections can be removed.  Click on Ok.
 
When cleaning process is complete a log of what was removed will be presented.  Please copy and the paste this log in your next post.
 
 

Please download Junkware Removal Tool.
 
Open your browser and go to Downloads, then click on the Junkware Removal Tool to install it.  
 
Click on Run to initiate the installation.
 
To avoid potential conflicts, temporarily disable your antivirus and firewall.  You will want to be offline when you do this.
 
Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select Run as Administrator.
 
The tool will open and start scanning your system.
 
Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
 
On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.  Copy and this and then post this in your topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
