Try this first. It could be a virus or maybe not. But I would visit Norton's website and install any virus updates that are available. Then run the software. The software may not be able to delete the virus, but it may be able to identify it. Download and install any patches available from Norton that will help you eliminate the virus. Did Norton give you the name of the virus at least? Run another virus scan to make sure the virus has been dealt with.

Try www.housecall.trendmicro.com

You'll need to use IE, cause it uses ActiveX, to scan your PC.

type msconfig in RUN and click the BOOT.INI tab, on the bottom of that check \safeboot restarts in safe mode, then while in safe mode, uncheck it to get back again. Or F8 at startup
