2) Checking the list of running processes and services using Windows Task Manager and services.msc tool.

3) Visually checking the System folders for suspect files with Windows Explorer.

4) Submitting the any suspicious files to Symantec security response for analysis using the Web Sample Submission page.

5) Tracking and reviewing the response provided by Symantec to your submission.
