I was actually trying to turn my security up. However, the virus was disguised as Windows Live Security, so i accidentally let it in instead.

You always bash me, but the only time i ever get viruses is when i don't have the upgrades, or purposely let a virus through. Maybe if you pulled your head out of the ass you would realize that Symantec is perfectly fine, and i happen to know that university of Gettysburg relies on Norton to keep their system safe.

lets see....I know people that are 'compu-nerds' that help people fix their computers, and they all agree that Norton/Symantec is the worst possible thing to use due to the fact it limits the system.


and the reason why the university uses it is because norton gives huge discounts to schools.

How does it limit the system? My comp is working fine and is virus-free, i don't see how it could be better or worse...

then you get high speed DSL or T1 and use Chrome and what you were using before shines in all its shittiness.

I GOT AVG!

The virus stopped from having access to Symantec Anti-Virus, so i download AVG to get it out. (The Virus hasn't been totally removed from my computer, neither AVG nor Symantec managed to do that, Symantec worked for a while, but i left my computer on, the virus re-downloaded, and blocked Symantec. I'm now using a specialized program to try to destroy the virus).

AVG is great for stopping viruses from getting on your computer, but it's almost useless once they're there. AVG is an outstanding virus shield, but it's not an effective remover if you use it in conjunction with several other programs.

Yah, because it's an awesome shield. TNine didn't have AVG, though, so he didn't have a shield. Didn't I just get finished saying this?

Vaccines and cures are two different things.

What are you talking about? They're called viruses for a reason.

Another problem is that some viruses are trained to work around AVG, or even kill your computer if AVG locates them. Popular anti-virus programs are nice, but they all have this problem. Lesser known programs are not suggested unless you have confirmation from someone who knows what they're talking about, as they could easily be fakes and actually install more viruses.

Here's what I suggest:
Dr. Web
Malwarebytes
Spybot: Search and Destroy
AVG Free

Other programs such as HijackThis and ComboFix are also extremely, but I would not suggest them unless you have permission from a professional. If you don't know how to use them correctly, they have a decent chance of completely ruining your computer. Very powerful programs.

Vaccines prevent viruses, like AVG was meant to do.

Cures fix viruses. AVG isn't particularly good at this. It's fairly effective, but you'd be an idiot to only use AVG to cure your computer of something as severe as this. Especially if you're using the free version.

Vaccines pretty much cure a virus, as once you have been vaccinated you cant really get it.

You cant cure a virus, you can get a vaccine though

symantec actually reduces the speed your computer can access the harddrive as well as bogs down your processor. And on top of that its notorious for reducing high-resource program speed,

Well, AVG Free is what I'd use. If you want to pay for a program I sugest McAfee. I got it on my comp and I'm quite pleased with it.

And Norton is the worst shit you could ever have on your computer. EVER.
It's too overprotective, it slows down everything. Get rid of it and see the difference. Getting rid of it is a pain in the ass though. And if I'm not mistaken, I think symantec makes viruses and sends them to comps with norton so that they are forced to upgrade.

But my suggestions; AVG Free + MacAfee.
