    i scanned my pc and i found this: "sysweb.exe virusname backdoor.sdbot" however the action taken by norton was to leave it alone, nothing else, how can i remove it?

    try www.security.kolla.de and get spybot search and destroy. Download it, install it, update it and then run it.
    Norton sucks ass for removing backdoors and trojans, and you're usually pretty lucky if it even finds them in the first place.

    i used it but norton keeps telling me i have a virus in c>windiws.system.sysweb.exe

    spybot didn't find it, i run it twice and says i'm fine. i went in the windows explorer and tells me it's in use i can't delete it and then i run a command prompt but tells me it's an invalid file. how can i remove it?

    The following instructions pertain to all current and recent Symantec antivirus products, including the Symantec AntiVirus and Norton AntiVirus product lines.


    Disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP).
    Update the virus definitions.
    Do one of the following:
    Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP: Restart the computer in Safe mode.
    Windows NT: End the Trojan process.
    Run a full system scan and delete all the files detected as Backdoor.Sdbot.
