i have a problem.
my computer recently just had 2 viruses. i deleted both of them, both trojans.
now my firewall sends windows up on the screen, saying that dinst.exe, aurareco.exe, and LuComServer_2_6.EXE (for my live update) is attempting to connect to a DNS server. when i block the adware, my mouse freezes up for a few seconds, and then another firewall popup comes back on with the same message.

i saw on a different website that if i press ctrl + alt +delete and click the procceses tab, scroll down to where these are located, and end the process, it will be deleted. but they keep coming back and its beginning to be frustrating. please help me

thanks

Norton used to have good products about a decade ago. Now they're (edited) I would ditch Norton and find a (much) better alternative.

jdm, that wasn't a very useful comment to the question.

yanksin05,
In the Task Manager, by ending a process, you are not deleting the file or the "trigger" that will begin the sequence again. You should head to the Malware forum and post a log, and one of the experts there will give you step by step instructions to rid your system of the unwanted pop-ups.

Norton has its faults, but it is still the most common and one of the most reliable products on the market. In this case, Norton is doing its job by preventing aurareco.exe from accessing the internet.
