My Nortoon Anti-Virus is unable to remove the trojan from my computer. What should I do?

My Norton is up-to-date.

Certain viruses are designed to target specific anti-virus software packages, so you have to use an alternative anti-virus to remove them. AVG and AVAST are free anti-virus packages that you can download via Google. You will need to temporarily uninstall Norton whilst you run AVG/AVAST on your computer, then re-install Norton once the computer is clear.

You should try an alternate piece of software like Malware bytes anti-malware software or, as a last resort something like Combofix.

If the virus can not be deleted, try to build a boot image with norton on it. Then make the scan again from this bootable version.
