  • Looking for Help

    I've got a problem that maybe someone on this board can help with. I was the victim of a virus attack a week ago and had to recover my OS. I'm running XP, but the problem I now face is with my Norton Internet Security. I had to reload it and now it will not operate. Every time I try to configure my settings it does not respond. To make things worse, I can't view the internet with it installed. I've been to the Symantic web site but there is no help on this.

    Although I can fix just about anything if I can get my hands on it, including your computer, it is pretty hard to help you from a message board position. I wouldn't have nortons software if they paid me. If you can get online without it I would suggest deleting it from your machine and looking for something else in the form of protection. How did you get the virus?

            I know you said you recovered your OS but if you are running XP and used the Restore feature to get to a previous state, then I think you still have a virus. Some of the more vicious ones will prevent anti-virus software from running properly. Unless you reformatted your HD I wouldn't be convinced you got rid of the virus entirely. And I'm not sure that would do it either.

            If you have NAV, you should know the www.symantec.com website has a lot of good detail on viruses and if you type in the virus that was found on the machine it will give you particulars it and on disabling the "restore" feature in XP before running a virus removal tool - which is separate from running the anti-virus software. You may need this tool to help get rid of those pains.

            If that doesn't narrow it down, a search on Google using something like - "viruses disabling anti-virus software" might give you another approach. I'm thinking you still have a virus residing in memory which could have been embbed in a "previous good restore version".

            Keep us up to date. Curious as to what it turns out to be.

              So did the NAV or Norton Internet Security ever get resolved?

                I need help!
                by NJ Ramsfan1
                Mods- please delete after hopefully someone helps me. When I post a comment on the forum on my home computer, I cannot start a new paragraph upon hitting the "enter" key. Why?? I do not have this problem at work, and also otherwise have no issues with my home computer. There has got to be a simple solution to this issue. Any advice would be appreciated!!

                Computer problems, need some help!
                by Nick
                Okay, I'm sitting here working on my girlfriend's new computer, which she purchased at Best Buy and had the Geek Squad optimize, and I'm having some issues with Internet Explorer.

                It seems that every now and then whenever I try to load a webpage or click a link, my browser initiates a Google search for what looks like the URL to some kind of ad banner on the page trying to load.

                For instance, when trying to open this URL, her computer goes to that page for a second but then proceeds to perform a Google search for this.

                It happens off and on while navigating random sites I've been to, but occurs quite a bit when navigating Yahoo and Yahoo Mail, which is the client we both use for our e-mail. After having had this happen on the PC a couple of times, I've tried hitting escape while the page finishes loading certain objects, and that seems to stop it in some instances, but is a huge pain in the ass and only really works after you've been redirected since you know what you're trying to do is going to cause the redirect.

                Any idea what this could be? SpySweeper doesn't recognize any spyware on the computer and it was happening prior to the installation of Google's toolbar in her IE window, so I'm wondering if there's just a setting somewhere that I need to change so that the web page doesn't automatically initiate these kinds of searches.
