    I just installed a new antivirus yesterday and have ran the scan. It didn't detect any viruses, but it has detected spyware and adware threats. I have tried everything to delete them. When I tried to delete them through the antivirus, it said deletion failed. I have went to the symantec site and tried to read up on it. It keeps saying update virus definitions and rescan and delete. My definitions are updated, so no idea now what to do.

    Thanks, Tammy
