Re: ExastRRaaSaavIngs : Norton 360 not able to detect and remove this malware

Hi, this is a browser hijacker and adware program. I suggest you visit one of the free malware removal sites we recommend, where an expert will work to clean your system.

Resist any self fixing, and stay with the one you choose until your system is clean.

seriously Symantec should consider selling grocery items and leave the business of software/network security.

I purchased this crap!!!!! it is not able to detect & delete a well known malware.

Some software programs try to do them all, such as be a decent firewall/antivirus/optimiser in one. Trouble is they usually let an area get weak or try to be too greedy and people move on.

Most of the laptops I have cleaned all come with adware/spyware/pup and browser hijacks/extensions that your traditional Antivirus will struggle with. The best prevention for this is change your browsing habits, use a standard user account and drop the popular browsers that are deliberetely targeted.

Don't expect your antivirus solution to be able to defend against everything out there. A combination of malware scanners, pop-up blocker and anti-virus is typical to meander 'safely' these days for the average inexperienced user.

varunsh9, Norton concentrates on anti virus malware and not PUPs and PUAS, unless they cross the line.

Many of these adware/browser hijackers are installed by people who don't uncheck and bundled software that may be included in a download.

Re: ExastRRaaSaavIngs : Norton 360 not able to detect and remove this malware

thanks for you responses!

I downloaded a trial version of some xyz (name not disclosed) malware software. & it was able to identify and clean atleast 23 malware/trojans/virus. Prior to that I had full system scan of Norton 360. & it was able to identify only 3 virus. out of which 1 was my QTP.rar software, which is obviously not a virus ;)

It really sounds strange to say that this virus protection software does not protect against everything out there. come-on this is just a malware, and why do people buy norton then???

So, it's cute if we say that norton is doing a security job if it is not able to out perform the good work done by newbies in the industry.

is it that people in bigger industries concentrate lesser on good work & concentrate more on meetings and talking skills (only to save their job) ?? :) ...... no offenses

Your no name software may well have *identified* many so called viruses, but this is often a ploy to get you to buy their software.
