Scanned once with Ad-Ware Norton picked up 9 virus'

Scanned again to check if it was Ad-Ware and picked up the same things!

Personally I would rip out the viruses manually, then run the scan again and carry on till your com is clean.

What are you downloading to get so many viruses?

This is probably because the repair failed on some, and some might relate to the other ones.

In this case which it usually says is to restart in safemode when they will not be running and to run it again, because at this time, there running in memory and cannot be stopped.

Some programs also give an option to check on next bootup before loading anything else. This would probably sort them

If you don't want to do this, you could probably find out how to delete them manually like David says.

Hope this helps
