Pancake: TrojanFakeAV



I've been infected with malware I think. When I open the laptop normally I get various error messages such as critical use of hard drive/failure to read hard drive/loss of data etc. A "Windows Recovery Defrag" window opens up and it seems to be one of those that "runs" and discovers corrupted files which it will fix for a fee.

When I try to run Hijackthis it shuts down. Norton won't get past Backdoor.

In Safemode with networking Norton is currently running and has shown up no problems so far but hijackthis won't run.

Any suggestions Pancake?

Norton is saying that "TrojanFakeAV" has been quarantined and that it is "partially resolved". Norton still scanning.
