My son has Norton 360 on his laptop. He picked up some malware that identifies itself as Antivirus IS, I'm not sure why Norton 360 didn't stop it, but more importantly why can't it get rid of it. Isn't this what the program is for? Do I need to buy something else, any suggestions?

The file "....................\Application Data\[random]\[random]lanw.exe" belongs to the Rogue "AntivirusIS"
Shows in Hijackthis (Renamed) in the O4 section, I remove this from a Windows 7 system 3 days ago
One way is to rename that file in the location above to say "bad.exe" and restart the PC, now that the registry can't find the file to load, so the rogue doesn't load.
