    You might like to review my post in microsoft.public.security.virus,

    I'll repeat it here, to save you searching! :)

    Hello Akshay Hari - I smell a rat here! (British colloquialism!)

    I'm *not* a technical helper but I have been in a similar situation and come
    here for help. The conundrum is knowing just who one can trust! :) I had
    originally thought that this was a site operated by Microsoft and thus
    beyond reproach, but that seems not to be the case. Literally *anyone* can
    post here and, of course, purport to be something other than they really
    are. I believe it to be a very dangerous place. Just my view.

    You were given magnificent advice (or so it seems) by 'Kayman' - it may all
    be absolutely correct.

    However, the follow-up post is 'signed' by David H. Lipman - in this case
    what is known as a 'bottom poster', with his response under the original one
    from 'Kayman'. It appears, though, that a mistake has been made. Even though
    that second post was supposed to be from Mr Lipman, it appears that the
    poster was the very same 'Kayman' - both the name used in 'From'
    ............... and the IP address (203.172.37.194) ........... are the same.

    Perhaps there is a simple explanation. Comments from others here might help.

    I do note that you personally didn't mention using System Restore. Have you
    used it? (Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore)

    Perhaps worth a try if you haven't. Hope this helps!

    The first thing that you might want to do before anything is to Remove\Uninstall Norton. Using their uninstall tool which is available on the link I have posted below.
    Once you removed Norton which I believe is causing some conflict with the Multi AV from David ,then and only then re-run the install for the Multi AV tool

    No it wasn't; re-read the post in its entirety and try to comprehend!
    It's obvious, isn't it!

    Disable real-time protection provided by NAV, SAS, and a² before running
    Mult-AV.

    scans many times in past with no problems, only today. scaned with others
    today-nothing found. my machine is clean. was only running multi-av to
    update and routine monthly scans. thanks.

    One or more recent Norton updates have been causing all sorts of problems
    lately. Try disabling all Norton Add-ons as well as NAV before scanning
    with Multi-AV.

    Is NAV part of NIS 2007, topo?

    Perhaps if you re-read it too, you will note how mis-interpretation could
    occur. No mention was made, by you, that you were adding, as an
    after-thought, the 'extra' info, originally written elsewhere by Mr Lipman
    (no reference provided) and no mention, by you, that it, too, might prove
    useful.
    It is - but only now that you have confirmed that *you* posted the
    additional information.

    The OP posted his message thus: 'Re: to david lipman'.

    When he saw the 'extra' item from Mr Lipman he might (just possibly) have
    thought that Mr Lipman himself had added the additional information.

    FWIW

    Your original question was "what is the best way to remove multi-av from
    machine so i can reinstall?"

    I find it odd ........... that no-one answered it! <g>

    Do you know the answer now?

    Try running the tool in safe mode. and I believe simply removing the folder
    will uninstall it. :)

    Delete the folder where you unzipped it.
    Multi-AV is a frontend for a small collection of console based antivirus
    scanners. It's a very useful tool.
    I don't mean to point out the obvious, however, had anyone read the
    documentation for the installation instructions, it wouldn't take a rocket
    scientist to reverse the steps. :)
