You can also run Run Stinger in Safemode ==>
and dont forget to run the Disk Cleanup on ur hard drive in order to delete all those extra junk temp files and also the temp internet files of IE !!

Good Luck :)

Hi lesmydad,

As you can see from the linked Symantec page that Shehar posted, removal of Dluca involves installation of Norton AV. You can download a 30-day trial version of Norton from:

Remember to disable System Restore when doing the removal.

To get rid of PurityScan all you need to do is download Spybot Search & Destroy. PurityScan is adware and it's been included in Spybot's reference file since September '03. To maximize protection, run the Update on Spybot before scanning your machine.

That should take care of your problem. Good Vibes!

OOps!   I forgot. You can download Spybot S&D from:

Don't forget to run the Update after installation.

Good Vibes!
