Running Norton Antivirus with latest updates. Nortonís System Works 2001. 4
Although I have Nortonís running all the time and update 2 -3 time a week, last week I was hit with the W32Burbear@mm and PWS Hooker Trojan virus.
After downloading and running the removal tool from Symantec, all seems OK, however on running a full system scan the scan only runs for about 1.5 Mins and only 8,000 file. Normally the file size would be about 60,000.
I have tried changing the options for files scanned but this makes no difference.
Could someone offer any suggestion has to what is wrong and how I can fix this?
