    Hello there,
    I'm hoping someone will be able to help me solve an
    annoying virus problem. Whenever the internet is plugged
    into my computer my Nortan Anitvirus pops up constantly
    with virus fixed messages with about 4 to 6 variations,
    eg. C:/WINDOWS/Brasil.bif I downloaded a patch for these
    kind of virus's. This hasn't fixed the problem so I was
    wondering if anyone knew how? Thanks very much.

  2. Hi - do you have a firewall? If not, you need one. Never connect to the
    Internet without using protection.
    What version of Norton Antivirus, and have you run Live Update and run a
    full scan?
    What's your OS version?

  3. 1) Download the following three items...

    Trend Sysclean Package
    http://www.trendmicro.com/download/dcs.asp

    Latest Trend signature files.
    http://www.trendmicro.com/download/pattern.asp

    Adaware SE
    http://www.lavasoftusa.com/

    Create a directory.
    On drive "C:\"
    (e.g., "c:\New Folder")
    or the desktop
    (e.g., "C:\Documents and Settings\lipman\Desktop\New Folder")

    Download sysclean.com and place it in that directory.
    Dowload the signature files (pattern files) by obtaining the ZIP file.
    For example; lpt186.zip

    Extract the contents of the ZIP file and place the contents in the same directory as
    sysclean.com.

    2) If you are using WinME or WinXP, disable System Restore
    http://vil.nai.com/vil/SystemHelpDocs/DisableSysRestore.htm
    3) Reboot your PC into Safe Mode
    4) Using both the Trend Sysclean utility and Adaware, perform a Full Scan of your
    platform and clean/delete any infectors/parasites found.
    5) Restart your PC and perform a "final" Full Scan of your platform using both the
    Trend Sysclean utility and Adaware
    6) If you are using WinME or WinXP,Re-enable System Restore and re-apply any
    System Restore preferences, (e.g. HD space to use suggested 400 ~ 600MB),
    7) Reboot your PC.
    8) If you are using WinME or WinXP, create a new Restore point
    9) Please report back your results
