Don't know if Norton was warning you or detected the storm trojan.
One of the best programs to deal with trojans is Super Antispyware. Install it. Run it in safe mode and allow it to remove whatever it finds.
Run an online scan with Bit Defender and allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Please let us know the results of the scans and any problems you encountered.
