If you are a registered user of Norton anti-virus, you should be able to call Symantec for assistance.

Purchase Dr. Solomon's Anti-Virus Toolkit Version 7.96 or higher, it removes
permenantly this very virus, provided you use the Magic Bullet disk on a
boot after a complete power off shutdown for 5 minutes or longer.

The only thing you have to remember is to turn off the computer, wait 5 minutes,
install the Magic Bullet disk and turn on the computer, let Magic Bullet boot
the computer.  Press F4 for repair and let Dr. Solomon's go to work and
kill your virus.

When this is finished, remove the Magic Bullet at the remove disk prompt
and let your computer, reboot to the Hard Disk.  Then install the Dr. Solomon's
Toolkit to protect your computer from further attacks.

Dr. Solomon's Anti-Virus protects againist over 40,000 Viruses, Trojan Horses
and stelth virus.

you might want to look at the programs 'Antigen 2.0' and 'Toilet Paper BO'. People have used them to get rid of Trojans and BO, and from what they say, it works.

If you want to get rid of this Trojan Horse and prevent any more returning,
use Dr. Solomon's Anti-Virus Toolkit with the magic bullet - version 7.96
or later.
