hi loophole,

i just uninstalled my symantec version that was not functioning properly and then downloaded it again from my school site and installed it.

then i clicked on that link you ahd sent me with the "virus" and this time symantec caught it. it took it about 30 seconds, but the window then did pop up that said it was found and was deleted.

does that mean that symantec is working now?

another question for you... i have norton utilities (including norton system doctor) and norton systemworks installed from previous times (the previous owner of this computer), as well as desktop doctor and virtual DAEMON manager V3.47. and now i have ad-aware SE personal and Spy-Bot Search and Destroy that i installed when I first came to this website and followed the initial instructions. Is all this stuff okay to have installed together, along with the Symantec Antivirus I just installed? And should I have it all / do I need it all? Just curious, since I don't know what half of the stuff does. Thanks!

You can uninstall the norton products from the previous owner. Spy-bot and Adawre are keepers, keep them updated. Let me see a hijack log when your done to make sure the Norton services are gone. They tend to not uninstall completely

Thanks :tazz:

i uninstalled norton systemworks...but it froze up while uninstalling. i closed it and tried to uninstall it again but the option wasn't available now (it was acting like it and the norton unitilies were uninstalled already)

here's my HJT. also, should i leave the desktop doctor and virtual DAEMON thing?

That looks good. I would just leave the DAEMON Tools . They arent hurting anything and maycome in handy sometime

Everything looks good :tazz: and you have all the necessary spyware and virus tools. Everything working OK

:tazz: yes, everything right now is working great! i'll keep an eye on things and write you again soon if i notice anything weird. (last night, my computer did shut off for no reason...but, hopefully that won't happen anymore now that i have a working symantec).


also, one last question for now... regarding Spy-Bot. Sometimes it pops up and says some value is changed, should I allow or deny. Is there a general rule I should follow for that? Also...is it just on my computer, or is it on others too, that the box that pops up for that does not show the Allow/Deny buttons well (I can't even see the words on them, they're cut off by the bottom edge of the box, but I think Allow is always on the left, Deny is always on the right). ???

Yes thats a glitch with Spybot...Thought it was fixed....Yes allow is on the right. Generally if you install a program or an active X spybot will pop up and you can allow these. If you arent doing either of the above then you probably should block them and do a scan. Make sure you use the immunize feature as well

Good luck :tazz:
