    my computer at home got this virus called Backdoor.Nibu trojan.
    Norton displayed a message saying that it got rid of it. then again it displayed the same message after half hour, sometimes it displays it evcery hour. i went to symantec's website looked for it. followed the directions. no luck.
    after i restart the machine it and i go to check the registry i see this file "load32" in there. this registery key if removed suppose to get rid of the whole thing. but it comes back . and after a while i get the message again that norton found the virus and got rid of it. my computer been acting weird and slow since i started getting this message. it's driving me crazy.

    i ran Norton , i ran ad-aware and spybot , they found nothing.
    i have windows xp home/SP2.

    any help will be appreciated. thanks in advance

    thats an ugly one ,i had it long time ago .
    turn your system restore OFF ,reboot in SAFE MODE ,make sure that you had beore updated your NAV (norton) .
    do a full scan hard drive .when found something either delete or quarantine .if this doesnt work ,let us know .we ll try something else .
