Specs: Windows XP
i have an acer travelmate 4200 laptop that runs xp. i downloaded norton antvrs 2008 which ironically was a virus.

my slow pc finally allowed me to remove norton with nrt.
error message i receive is CVSHOST.EXE my system refuses to perform a restore although i have points and i am unable to boot into safe mode(s) as when i do the system starts over again. i can still run my mozilla but have tons of penis growth ads on every page i view.

i am desperate pls help.

ps when i try to download adaware i am redirected to page not found.
i dont have ie explorer only use firefox. my bitcomet doesnt work as a result as well.
i also have no more sound icon in my bottom right's not existent when i looked for it.

i am new here and have searched for an answer but to no avail....i have also ran a scan using anti vira

please help me and may god bless you.

You should remove norton antivirus with the help of norton removal tools.
After remove norton, you can scan your computer with super antispyware or Malwarebtes.
