For the past couple weeks or so my computer has been infected. They've been all sorts of different viruses and Norton Antivirus 2006 scans, finds them, and removes them but they keep coming back. I tried doing a system restore to about 2 months ago and the problem didnt resolve itself. I've also tried using Roguescanfix and smitRem to no avail. My computer is running windows XP media center edition if that helps

Any help is appreciated. thanks

Welcome to bleepingcomputer slicktrick689
Let's try this before we go to HiJackThis
Run the NAV again then do the following as you may be reinstalling the virus.

Empty your Recycle Bin.
Update your windows Windows Update

Create a new Restore Point:
Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
Then when Restore opens, select Create a new restore point and click Next
Give the the restore point a name like New and clean >Click Create

Then delete old Restore points:
Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup > Click Ok.
Click the more options tab > notice System Restore > click clean up >Reboot

A little extra protection
