Since yesterday I keep receiving this message in a popup from norton "Norton blocked an attack by: system infected: Fake Plugin Activity 2" It pops up every time you open any browser (firefox, IE, Chrome), and keeps popping up a few times a minute while browsing online, or even as I am typing now. Norton, up to date Norton Security, says that it blocked the attack and that "no further action is needed" but my online searches seem to say that I am already infected and Norton is fighting it on the inside, whatever that means. I also downloaded Norton Power Eraser, and I still continued to receive this message after it was complete and my system rebooted.


As I am using the computer all kinds of pop up ads are appearing.  Some for fixing computer problems and other random ads.  Even as I have typed this, some other Norton windows popped up, one with fake plugin activity 3, and a completely different one that didn't last long enough for me to see.  So I don't know if I have a bunch of viruses or just one.  Each time it says that norton blocked it. 


I am using Norton Security and used Power eraser.  I have no other malware programs.  I have Windows 7, 64-bit.
