    Please help me with this worm. I am a begginer, but follow directions well. Norton discovered the "spybot.worm" but is not able to clean it. I am at a loss on what to do next.
    I was reading up on some of the other members with the same issue, and it seems like I have to do what they did. Can you please walk me through what I have to do? Thanks you in advance for your assistance. :confused:

    Hi devildog,

    What's the full path name Norton AV picked up the worm?

    Please do this. Click here to download Hijack This. Run Hijack this.
    Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

    Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required. Someone here will be glad to advise you on what to fix.

    *Note: When you download Hijack This Do Not download it to a temp folder or to the desktop. Create a permanent folder somewhere like in My Documents and name it Hijack This and put it in that folder.
