First of all I'm happy your computer is working as it should be. I have read all this twice and I'm still confused.
1: What caused the problem?
2: What has been done to make sure it doesn't happen again.
3: Why wouldn't sfc /scan do the same thing that the registry tool did.

Hope this help>

1) OP installed a program with a virus inside.
2) Norton delete the virus, but did not uninstall the program.

Hi Layback this is a Trojan:

Troj/Drop-FS is a Trojan dropper for the Windows platform.

Troj/Drop-FS attempts to drop a number of files to the <CommonFiles>\ComObject and <Application Data>\AMozilla\AFirefox\Profiles\ff.profile folders, including the following which are detected as Troj/Selite-A:

<CommonFiles>\ComObject\liveupdate.js
<CommonFiles>\ComObject\SP.exe
<CommonFiles>\ComObject\wSock.exe
<CommonFiles>\ComObject\AdvBox32.dll

Troj/Drop-FS attempts to run liveupdate.js, and sets the following registry to run it automatically:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
TaskMngr
wscript.exe <CommonFiles>\ComObject\liveupdate.js

Troj/Drop-FS may be downloaded by code exploiting the CVE 2010-1885 vulnerability

Very informative Jacee well done.
Microsoft probably should fix this exploit.

Sorry, shanefromoz. It is not an exploit that Microsoft can fix when infected files are downloaded.

Im sure they can stop the files getting to that part of the op system.
Like a lock on that file without permission.
