Use this uninstall tool to remove Norton but Kaspersky is just as bad. Were it me I would install Microsoft Security Essentials

Time to download malwarebytes and do a full scan. Otherwise just removing norton will not help you.

Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download

Works great and let it update. then do a full scan.

Glad Norton's keeps up with the nasty guys. Got an e-mail with attachment this morning and Norton's removed the "Trojan.FakeAV" right away. Email was about free tickets from American Airlines. Norton's is well worth the small amouint I pay each year.

I have used Norton's Internet Security many times and its very good. Their Customer Services has drastically improved. However, if you continue to open emails from unknown sources it won't matter how good your security software is you will still get an infection.

I have a rule that is sometimes not easy to obey but I obey it anyway, and that is, if in doubt delete it.

Well, I really didn’t open it and besides attachments do not get through my e-mail. I just went on line and looked at it. I sent Norton’s to look at the Attachment and it did its job without opening it up. I have only been at this computer stuff for 53 years and am still learning.
