Anit Virus #1 Norton 360

Moving post from Anti VIrus #1/AVG post with the intent of starting a new thread.

My current problem is very similar and it occured with Norton 360 Version 2.0 installed. Anti Vrius #1 hit me on Sunday. Malware removed it but also shutdown Norton. I tried reinstalling and it wouldn't run. I also had no internet connectivity. Uninstall Norton and I got my connectivity back. I've been dealing with a Norton rep all week. I've tried installing all Norton products, AVG and McAfee with no luck. I've also been exchanging emails with a Malware techie. The Norton rep was the one who informed me of the post on this forum regarding the tdisp file, which Norton asked me to send to their virus center. Looks like I need to try ComboFix. I'll post the results.

Hi PacBlu,

Welcome to Experts-Exchange!

Run combofix again using this script.
1. Open Notepad.
2. Now copy/paste the text between the lines below into the Notepad window:
------------------------------------------------------------------------
File::
c:\windows\system32\tdisp.sys

Driver::
tdisp
------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Save the above as CFScript.txt on your desktop.
4. Then drag the CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe. This will start ComboFix again.

No problem, glad to know it's been resolved.

>>>"... I've also been exchanging emails with a Malware techie."<<<

I hope the advice you received was free... Next time you have any pc problems 'malware or not' just come to us here at EE.
It was good of the Norton rep to point you here.


To uninstall Combofix:
Go to Start > Run and 'copy and paste' next command in the field:

ComboFix /u

The above process will remove Combofix and its files, delete the created backup and reset system Restore.

Thank you for using Experts-Exchange!

After the Norton rep exhausted everything he had access to, he mentioned some $99 service they had that would scan my system deeper. This was also when he mentioned that he found a similar problem posted on a forum that ended with the name "exchage." That's all I needed to know. It became very apparent to me that those folks have to be real careful what they tell the customers and what advice they give.

All I was doing with the Malware guy was exchanging emails. No fee's

Though I can see where it may be worth paying to be part of this forum.
