Hi!

 

I keep getting alerts from Norton that this (Heur.AdvML. B. ) is being removed on my laptop. It can happen again and again, with little time apart. Its not detected by Malwarebytes. But the alerts keep coming back. I searched for it, and found a topic on Norton community forums, but its not clear if its malware or false positive.

 

( link: https://community.norton.com/en/forums/heuradvmlb-detected-false-positive-or-not )

 

Anyway, I cant seem to get rid of it. And today I also had an alert from Microsoft to change my password on my hotmail acc. So any help is appriciated. I'm not very computer savy, nor is English my first language, so please keep that in mind... Thanks for any help! :-)

I started as described to do a full scan (with default settings) -nothing showed up.

 

Then tried Norton Power Eraser does not work... so no help in this...... Because I clearly have this WIMBoot thing.... :-(

 

Explained here: https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/home/current/solutions/v110082286_EndUserProfile_en_us

 

Not sure if I should try this recovery tool- my computer is running and does start....?
