Hi guys. Somehow, a virus called Spybot has been loaded onto my new computer. Norton Antivirus is able to detect it but not able to access, delete or quarantine it. The virus is located in the system32 floder on the C drive. How can i get rid of it? Any help will be greatly appreciated..

I dont know if this will help you but try this site, its by symantec

Virum W32.Spybot.Worm removal

Hope it helps.
Otherwise just type it in Google and you will find something or the other..I dont know what version of virus it is..but If it is this, then you should just follow the steps..

Man google is the best thing that happened after the creation of internet you dont even need a book any more..plus no calculator(since you can type your expression there and hit search, you will get your ans) as well as a dictonary or a spell check...its a dream come true

Cheers

Try and note down that filename.Type in the the Windows search options and try to delete it manually if u can.
Else,drag the file onto the desktop and run the Norton scan.
This might help.

Hey thanx for the help guys...Here's how i got rid of it..
1. Tried to delete it normally...but there was a message abt no access to the file was allowed.
2. Ran Norton AV 2004. This could only detect the file.
3. Then ran the CPU in Safe Mode after disabling system restore.
4. Manually deleted the file.

Thanx for the help anyway..the cpu and internet are working fine now

Sort of off tepic - but i really trust Eset NOD32 antivirus much more than Norton. Check out this site - Virus Bulletin and see the scores for yourself. Download a trial from the NOD32 website.
