Hi,

 

Running a mix of Win 7 and Win 8 laptops.

Norton 360 Premier Ed. on all of them.

 

My son's laptop got infected by a couple of different Rootkits.

I was able to remove them with Norton Power Eraser.

 

What can I use in conjunction with Norton360 to block the Rootkits in the first place?

 

thx

Have him stop going to questionable websites, don't download torrents, and run regular scans with a antimalware program like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.  .

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