This could be any number of things from what I have found by doing some checking. Out of curiousity, do you even have the Winzip program? Try doing your Norton scan in Safe Mode and see if it completes, and let us know how you make out with the results. Even if Norton can't fix this, we need to know what is is that you have and where it is on the computer. Directions for safe mode are here.
for about 2 days now, I have tried to run my virus scan (Symantec Antivirus) at night, and by morning, its no where near done. we're talkin, its scanned 50000 files max then just stopped on one file and scans (atleast i think its scanning it) 1 file. Ive also had to reboot constantly because winzip is taking 100% of my cpu and i cant end the program. I hate talking to symantec because they tell me the same things....update your definitions, run the virus scan, empty tempory files, etc, etc, etc. i did all that and nothing happens. I also noticed that winzip.exe was copied onto my mapped network drives, which leads me to beleive that winzip is a virus because i didnt put it there, and i know noone else did because one is my private network share. I really dont want to reinstall windows because i did that about 2 months ago, and bout 3 months before that....and OS that has to be reinstalled every 2 or 3 months is not an OS. I should upgrade to linux. no viruses or spyware :-D
Does anyone have any ideas about what i can do?
btw, im running XP on an Inspiron 1100 with Symantec Antivirus 22.214.171.1248
