New virus disables Norton
Contracted something that changes registry, permissions,keeps norton products from starting,6 Heur. processes running (as found by beeping computer's rkill program), changes proxy setting so power eraser won't update/run, added 632 PUP enties to registry.Shows a "Norton security will not start due to an internal problem" and upon rebooting everything stopped by rkill starts up again. Norton program won't repair,won't let removal tool run. Won't allow remove and reinstall acess to norton/symantec server.When removed with revo uninstaller,it can be reinstalled, but doesn't run (task bar icon has a grey slashed mark in place of a green check or red x) I contacted Norton by email but got no response. Can anyone help me? Effected PC and laptop. PC had to be wiped out and reloaded because it hides somewhere and comes back even with a restore from april. Had to re initialize drive and re partition. Don't want to do this on laptop if I can get a non-data loss solution. Is this virus new or has it been around awhile?
