Hello,

I ran Noah's fix and the Malware came up w/ Trojan.FakeAlert. I deleted it and three susequent searches came up 0.

The adware found low level tracking cookies which also are gone w/ susequent searches.

Panda would not let me install w/ the Norton being installed. I ran Norton full scans three times and the results were negative. Can I trust Norton (the trojan did get pass it) or should I uninstall Norton and install Panda and scan.

What are the preferences at geekstogo concerning security programs ?

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Regards,

Dennis (drblanky)

Please don't use caps or increase the size when posting

Download and run the Norton Removal Tool from here, that should remove it
