I am running Windows 98 SE.  I have a virus that when disconnected from the internet pops up a small warning box titled LANfiltrator.  It apparently is shutting down my Norton Antivirus in normal mode.  I have updated my virus definitions and tried scanning the computer using the Norton AV CD, the Norton AV Website, running Norton AV in safe mode.  None of these things have come up with any virus though.  Yet it still is doing there with the popups when I disconnect from my LAN and the internet.  I have tried what the Symantec website suggests for the virus Backdoor.LANfiltrator.  The following is what the Registry Editor is running  


Ati2cwxx                                    Ati2cwxx.exe
AtiPTA                                        Atiptaab.exe
bpcpost.exe                              C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\bpcpost.exe
ccApp                                        "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\ccApp.exe"
ccRegVfy                                   "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\ccRegVfy.exe"
CriticalUpdate                           C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\wucrtupd.exe -startup
CTRegRun                                 C:\WINDOWS\CTRegRun.EXE
HPDJ Taskbar Utility                  C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\hpztsb05.exe
ICSDCLT                                    C:\WINDOWS\rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\icsdclt.dll,ICSClient
IrMon                                        IrMon.exe
LoadPowerProfile                      Rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,LoadCurrentPwrScheme
LoadQM                                     loadqm.exe
Logitech Utility                           LOGI_MWX.EXE
LWBMOUSE                               C:\Program Files\Labtec\Labtec Mouse Software\1.0\lwbwheel.exe
Quicktime Task                          "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\QTTASK.EXE" -atboottime
RegShave                                  C:\Progra~1\REGSHAVE\REGSHAVE.EXE /autorun
ScanRegistry                              C:\WINDOWS\scanregw.exe /autorun
StillImageMonitor                       C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\STIMON.EXE
System                                       C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\css.exe
SystemTray                                SysTray.Exe
TaskMonitor                                C:\WINDOWS\taskmon.exe
TKBellExe                                   "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot
WhenUSave                                C:\Program Files\Save\Save.exe

A lot of that is gibberish to me but as I understand it these are the programs that run upon startup.  I am guessing that a lot of these are probably not necessary, but I iwll fight that battle another day.  For right now I just need to know how to get rid of the Lanfiltrator garbage.  I think that is all of the information that I have.  Thank you anyone for any help that you can offer.
