Virus named W32.SillyFDC
I scanned my computer 2 days ago with Norton 360 Comprehensive Scan and it found a virus named W32.SillyFDC. I don't know how long it was in my computer and where I got it because I never got a warning from Norton 360 (ver 2.0). 3 files, 52 registry entries, 6 ini file entries and 1 browser cache in my computer are affected.
I am not sure whether the anti-virus program in Norton 360 is as good as the anti-virus program in Norton SystemWorks. I used NSW before Norton 360 and one time NSW anti-virus caught a virus when it was trying to get into my computer. NSW warned me and quarantined the virus right away. In this case, Norton 360 never warned me, did not quarantine it and let it [this virus has 3 red lights (high) on all 4 areas (performance, privacy, removal and stealth)] damage some of my files and registry entries.
There is no "Delete" button in Norton 360, only "Restore" button, so I don't know how to delete it. I would appreciate it very much if anyone can tell me how to delete it.
I have another favor to ask. If anyone who uses Norton 360 please open the round window named PC Security, click on Manage Firewall, click on Network Locations to see whether your computer is currently connected to the network whose gateway physical address is . . . . . . . . . . . . . Please be sure to check it when your computer is connected to the internet. When I checked it offline the gateway physical address was not there. The reason I ask because I want to know whether the network my computer is connected to is the network of my internet provider (ie. earthlink, aol)
Please don't tell me to get in touch with a Norton professional technician. I got in touch with one technician already and spent some time with her. She did find out I had a spy who was trying to get into my computer and helped me to prevent it, but the gateway physical address is still there. Many thanks. Kathy
