Arghhh. I'm so upset. My old computer died...DIED because of LIMEWIRE. I no more than got the new computer installed and set up, and unbeknonst to me, my teenage daughter downloaded LIMEWIRE! Well, wouldn't you know it? Guess what. I have a TROJAN. I did all the things I was instructed to do. I installed and ran the removal tool for Trojan.Brisv.A!inf. I did exactly as the instructions said. After it ran, it said no infection was discovered. I did an update and ran another scan. Well, here it is again. It says I'm infected with this Trojan.Brisv.A!inf. WHY?!? I did everything as instructed. It is as if the tool didn't do its job. Any other ideas? Now what do I do? I have the removal tool still sitting on my desktop. Should I try it again? Should I remove it? I completely removed LIMEWIRE and had a discussion with my daughter about NEVER INSTALLING THAT CRAP AGAIN.
In the meanwhile, is my computer screwed? What exactly will this infection do if I cannot remove it? What are the risks?
Please respond. I could just cry thinking that my new computer is infected and I can't remove the infection even after doing what Norton says I should do.
Cindy :( :( :(
