my cousin has a problem with her pc
she bought nortons internet security 2007 i loaded it in updated virus definitions and run a full scan before it ended shown 2 viruses then before it ended the pc rebooted but before that a blue screen came up with white text couldnt see what it said the screen didnt stay on long enough
so i started it in safe mode exactly the same happened again ive also run spybot. adware.ccleaner and reg scrub to no affect
any help would be appreciated

one question; does it have any other av protection on it? and what was on it before the Norton got put on?

there was avg free on

it was coming up a trojan but what it said i dont no sorry

click here links to a squared which is a useful tool for finding nasties; needs to be fully updated before running it and an awareness of what is "safe" on ones pc as false possitives can be shown up

also am wondering why the free avg was taken off (was it correctly and completey uninstalled?)for a paid version of an av program?

one assumes that the system restore is ON and several known clean restore points already taken prior to this?

why tick this as resolved without stating how it has been resolved (that surely is a tad impolite)? or has it actually BEEN resolved?

maybe jonny_doe doesn't realise that you have to post your reply seperately to doing the green tick entry.
