Process termination required?

Norton Antivirus 2008 cleared a trojan for me. In the log it says "Trojan.vundo  fully removed" It repeats this message 3 times then says "Trojan.vundo  Process Termination Required"   Is this process termination that is required something that I have to do?

Is it still telling you this after couple of days?

No, now it says "Reboot required" which I did and checked again and it still says reboot required.

hi Annie - it sounds like it there is a problem getting the last bits of vundo off the system. i'd recommend rebooting into safe mode (click F8 after post several times until you get startup menu with safe mode as option). run a full scan in safe mode (i'd also recommend running LiveUpdate prior to restarting in safe mode to ensure that you have the latest def's).

Re: Process termination required?

Sorry, the log does still say Process Termination Required.  The history says reboot required. which might be what the former means. Thanks for your suggestions, I will have my son try them this weekend when he comes over. (a little too much for me a computer newbie). Although Since I'm not having the pop ups anymore, do I need to bother?
