Blocking spyware

I can't tell what is blocked or eliminated by my Norton 360 product. I use a different product to scan for

and remove spyware and malware. It shows me what is being removed. My computer picks up spyware everyday,

usually the same ones. Is there a way to get Norton to do this? And most importantly,

     Is there a way to BLOCK them in the first place?  It seems there should be a way to compile a list of the usual

spyware cookies and prevent them from ever loading. Does anyone have any info on this? Thanks.

Re: Blocking spyware

Norton Is a great antivirus protection except for one problem. a few days ago I was playing a simple game on steam when my keyboard keys were going out one by one. so, as quickly as I could, I disconnected from the internet. this stopped the keys from going out but the keys that where affected still didn't work. At first I thought this might be the keyboard going bad. However, some of the keys that stopped working were ones I hardly used. Plus, when I tried to access Norton it didn't open. I tried several methods to open it but it simply wouldn't work. Now, I suspected a virus. suddenly, my computer started to slow down. all the computers function became laggy. finally, a Norton notification popped up and told me "threats have been detected. Restart required". so, I did. After a minute or so the computer was completely booted up. I now had the ability to access Norton. My computer was also running at its normal speed. I decided to run Norton's full system scan and power erase tool. However, the virus had left damage behind that Norton did not fix. the same keys that weren't working before still don't work. The keys 2, F2, w, s, x, and z aren't working. please help!
