So i was showing my mom a video on her computer earlier today and as soon as we opened Internet Explorer we get a message from Norton saying it stopped some Trojan virus thing.
I'm some what confused by all this because my computer has pretty much the same programs but I have had no problems with viruses. I don't use IE but I did add Ad-Blocker to her IE program and that seemed to help. I also added Spybot search and destroy to both computers to help find bad stuff that Norton misses.
I looked up some videos on where viruses come from and one of the things that stuck out to me is they said that you can get viruses from games and I know my mom has games on her computer. Now I'm sure this is gonna be a red flag but she has games from "iWin" she didn't get them from their website she bought them on disc, but I have a feeling this iWin is the source of the problem from what I've found on the web.
She said she restored the computer to an earlier state, but only about a day earlier so i doubt the problem has been fixed, later tonight shes gonna run a full system scan with Norton and tomorrow im gonna run a scan with spy bot but that doesn't fix the iWin problem. So if any one knows of away to fix the iWin problem but with out messing up her games that would be helpful.
Thanks every one
