  • Steal your online and offline passwords, credit card numbers, address, phone number, and other information stored on your computer that could be used for identity theft, or other financial fraud.
this is one IMPORTANT reason to have a good firewall that blocks OUTGOING connections, so that the trojan canīt "call home" !

take a look at fx. Results and comments - www.matousec.com

i have done some test on firewalls, but i have not tested nortonīs firewall, but itīs #13 a bit down at that list, so it looks like it doesnīt do a very good job at blocking incoming either.

i recommend that you install one of the FREE firewalls at the top of the list, fx. Comodo or PC-Tools.

i have not tried PC-Tools, since it had problems with Firefox in earlier versions.

BUT, if you choose Comodo, do *NOT* install the "hopsurf-toolbar" !
itīs considered a security risk by experts, (Corrine) and since itīs prechecked when you install, you *MUST* uncheck those 3 "options".

i really recommend it, have used it on Windows 7 since Windows 7-beta,
works great and also has Defence+, that keeps an eye on every program that wants to run.

also get Winpatrol, which is a "must have-program", itīs a free program that also monitors your PC.
itīs recommended by experts, (Corrine).

no, Actually Norton was doing his job, and it was doing it very good.

I don't think you are safe now, as you think.
In simple terms, You had backdoor that's why you get more infection as backdoor opened door to malware enter your PC.

What is the settings of Comodo now?
Firewall settings level and Defence+ settings level (if you installed it)?
And did you install Comodo Anti virus aswell?

Comodo is junk. It installs hundreds of registry entries. Use Microsoft Security Essentials. You also should have used the Norton Removal tool. Scan your PC with malwarebytes in safe mode after updating. Before scanning, press the win key+r and type %TMP%. Enter, then Ctrl+A and Shift+Delete. Skip anything that won't delete. Reboot into safe mode and scan again.

Hi, yadielfeliciano.

I'm not going to tell you which antivirus software to use. That is your choice. However, I would suggest that if Norton was detecting a problem, it is not likely gone merely by installing a different program. Not every vendor has the same rate of updating definitions.

If you would like to perform a scan with Malwarebytes, please do the following:

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.

  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, be sure Quick scan is selected, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, EXCEPT items in System Restore as shown in this sample:
  • Click Remove Selected.
