Just got this virus 2 hrs ago on google, but also on other search engines. Norton security suite did not stop it. Been running full scan now for 2 hrs, has not found it. Googled virus, saw advice to download norton power eraser, but checked this forum first and saw Quads' warning not to run if you really don't know what you're doing. Google searches going to sites like: beesq.net, howtofolk.com, search many.com. Example of google search for "weather" took me to: http://18.104.22.168/search/web/weatehr/a22/46938-
Have windows xp home, sp3. Please help. Thanks a lot.
Solved! Go to Solution.

ANY other user other than the thread starter is not to use any instructions, scripts or proceedures, The work though in cleaning a system is individual and only for that system due to a number of factors.
Unfortunately, with the amount of threads means the waiting time is longer, Norton continually Blocking files won't hurt your system but is is just annoying, Please wait and be patient. I am trying to keep up, spending hours here to script and clean machines on a first come/first served basis. If you or someone adds to your thread It will be pushed back in line due to the new update. I use the boards in reverse to what is seen
Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
4. Cleanup (including system as a whole)
Please read every post completely before doing anything.
XP, so I need a first log, I think it is Tracur, but usually comes with more than that.
Disable Norton for say 30 minutes
Download OTL http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/otl/
Click the Scan All Users checkbox.
Change file age to 60 days
An OTL.txt and extras.txt will be created.
