Arcarde Safari

I have Norton 360 installed and my computer has been infected with the Arcade Safari virus.  It is a pop-up ad and a also generates new webpage opens from "smokik.com."  The virus infected my computer even with Norton's antivirus protection running.  I performed a Full System Scan and Norton Power Eraser but neither scan identified Arcade Safari, which remains on my computer.  I searched the forums and there is no mention of Arcade Safari.  However, when I do a Google search, there are plenty of mentions of the Arcade Safari virus and how to remove it.  Instead of installing yet another antivirus/malware removal software, I would like to stick with the Norton, which is the solution that I have already committed to.  I ran the new version check and I am using the latest version of Norton 360.  My computer is a 2012 Lenovo X1 Carbon running Windows 7 Pro.  Can someone please help me remove this virus?



Re: Arcarde Safari

Hi and Welcome to Norton Community Forums

Norton may not have detected Arcade Safari as an adware (or infection) because it was not crossing the limits, as per Norton / Symantec.
If you are interested in removing this PUP/adware, I would suggest you to seek help from any one of the trusted free malware removal forums listed at: https://community.norton.com/en/forums/malware-removal-forum-recommendat... and work with them.

Have a great week end!
