Hello community I hope I posted this in the correct forum. I currently have Norton anti-virus for protection on my computer. Recently I tried to download a video from a sharing website (mistake, I know). The files started downloading what I assume was most likely atrocities for my computer; so I cut the power, rebooted, and deleted the files.
Norton has since been prompting me to run Norton power eraser with a claim of, "detecting a large amount of suspicious outbound traffic on my system". I ran power eraser and it got rid of those files I downloaded as well as some other files.
The problem is that I am still getting the prompt to run Norton power eraser with the same claim of a large suspicious amount of outbound traffic. After checking the networking performance in task manager I can see that at any time my connection with get random fluctuations of up to 30%.
So I am still constantly being prompted with this security request to run Norton power eraser which means I assume that it didn't take care of the problem. I googled the issue and was directed to a Norton forums page with a user having the similar problem, and was redirected here. To view the prompt you can quickly browse that forum page: http://community.norton.com/en/forums/frequent-notification-run-power-eraser
I apologize if this problem has been posted before, I couldn't find it in a search or by browsing, and any help would be appreciated thanks.
