Badly infected computer.

April 17, 2011 at 20:37:46
Specs: Windows XP
An XP computer has Norton, and Norton is one of many programs on the computer that is infected. A scan reveals over 12000 infected files, but cannot clean them. In other words, Norton is a useless, gutted shell. Burning AVG and MBAM to a disc as tool.exe and toolb.exe and praying that none of the viruses are exe blockers or self-destructors. If comp. viruses were human viruses, this thing would get tossed in a biohazard barrel by guys in hazmat suits. Anyway, do you guys have any more advice?
Sincerely, a guy who wonders how a comp. can get that many friggin' viruses and still run.
PS: for those of you people who still insist on using norton after seeing how helpless it is, poke around in the files some and you'll find a one-year temp license code that gives you the full thing.

If the machine's as badly infected as you say, then FDisking, formatting and starting-over may be the best solution...

He managed to remove the trojans with mbam off a flash drive, and figured it out from there.
